Cookie Swap 2008 Pictures

Toys for Children's Hospital

This year we decided to use our $100 from Mom and Dad to buy toys to give to Children's. I let Gavin do most of the picking of the toys-we wanted him to select things he liked to hopefully understand the sacrifice a little more. Then we went over to the hospital as a family and delivered them. The kids had a good time and the Hospital of course was very thankful. They also had the coolest display of gingerbread houses-I didn't get pictures unfortunately, but Gavin loved them!

Happy Sunday!

Lily didn't want anything to do with having her picture taken (per usual), but she has 5 Christmas dresses and I'm thinking she'll probably wear each one once, so I had to get some kind of picture with her in it! ;) Maybe next week she'll cooperate more. Gavin of course loved having his picture taken!

Chocolate Box

I love SplitcoastStampers! I find so many great ideas over at that website. Here is yet another. I made my own design this time, but if you check out this post you will see instructions for tons of different sizes of these little chocolate boxes! (the chocolates are those Hershey's Nuggets)

Christmas Kisses Advent

Liz from one of my card groups gave me this idea and I think they turned out pretty cute!

Christmas Kisses:
Each evening when good nights are said,
have a kiss and hop into bed.
When all the kisses are gone away,
Christmas will come the very next day!

I wrapped up 24 kisses in green plastic wrap and tied red ribbon around each one. I attached a little tag with the poem, then we delivered them to our friends.
