I love that idea your foster mom did.
That was nice.
Thats the very things that make for good memories.
Lets face it, most of us can't remember 'all' the toys we were given.
We most likely remember 'some' but not 'all'.
Besides, the toys ended up broken or in the garbage not long after in our household.
But, things that make for the most memories were not the toys. My mother would always cook a huge meal. We would always have the aroma from the turkey or whatever meat; the smell from the pies & cakes; the big bowl of fresh fruit & nuts, the smell would permeate the room.
The fruit cake & egg nog was my favoirte. Playing board games as a family; my dad playing the piano & mom and us kids singing around it; being together reading stories was would I remember most. Its what I treasure most. No gift can replace that.
Our parents would take us riding in the different neighborhoods to look at the Christmas lights.
Things like this made for the best memories.
thank you for reminding me of these lovely memories.
I pray things get better in our economy but we have to do some changing as well..we are the ones who suffer not the big businesses..their kids will have everything they want for Christmas and everyday because of our spending..making gifts is something I started doing as well. Im teaching myself to sew and made my little kids costumes this year. I am also baking cookies by the dozens and banana bread as gifts..Anyone who doesnt appreciate my efforts to still give just not commerically, well all i have to say to them is BAH HUMBUG !!
have a great day, wonderful talking to you..
if someone out there can help me and my kids here is my email address
i really hope and pray everynite that someone will be our angel and help us
in response to bookworm2011... That Anonymous40784 is a smart one! I agree. My kids don't write lists either. I remember being a kid and doing that and being so disappointed when I didn't get what I asked for...Santa must not have cared. We also went through the Sears catalog circling everything we wanted, which was fun, but seemed pointless when we learned we wouldn't get a single thing in there!
My kids love getting home made gifts and I totally agree with what you said about craft fairs! Even though it is months before Christmas, entering crafts, antiques, produce, and baked goods into county and state fairs during the summer, is also a great way to earn cash for Christmas savings.
