A Gift a day...December 3rd

This little gift will have to be listed under sweet and really silly!
Two ding dongs wrapped with a cute home made card.... a recycled home made card at that. I was thinking this would of been a great gift idea for the twenty fourth...cuz for sure we all have a basket full of cards by then!

OK..the Ding Dong is the sweet gift and the silly is what the card says...

Front of card: "Warmest wishes"

Inside of card: From your Ding Dong Neighbors!

The year my first child was born I started a Christmas book basket. Every Christmas I would purchase one new book for our Christmas basket. Of course Grandparents also added Christmas books to this basket as well. Needless to say I have enough books to start a little Christmas book store. Some of the stories, the kids pretty much, had memorized and of course everyone had their favorites so we would end up reading three books a night before bedtime. We spent a lot of fun afternoons simply snuggled on the couch reading Christmas stories and sipping hot cocoa from our Christmas mugs. Once Christmas was over though, that big old basket full of Christmas books, was taken right back up to the attic until next Christmas. Every year it was a real treat seeing those books brought back down to be enjoyed for another Christmas season.

Not only is, "The legend of the Candy Cane" a wonderful Christmas story it is also beautifully illustrated....

I would love to hear some of the traditions you have come up with and ways that you have made the Holidays special for your families.
