Merry Christmas to my friends out there!
My son has been putting the Happy in Happy Holidays. He just LOVES the holidays and decorates our house with little crafts and colored pictures! He is such a joy and helps me smile even if I am also crying because I miss my daughters. I scrapped a page for him using Delicious Scraps' Happy Holidays kit. He's making a gingerbread man to hang on the wall. You should see our house. It has taped drawings hung up in the most random places!
I've taken a break from scrappin' this month (more info on that later) which has been super nice and let me get Christmas stuff done. We've been busy getting the last gifts done. My son is 6 and I always want him to be involved with the gifts because we teach that Christmas is about giving. We did "angel" gifts for 3 kids his age and he picked out presents for them. And we're taking donations to the children's hospital where the girls lived on Christmas again this year. He fabric painted some hot pads for each family member to go with his own "Tyson's Tasty Treats" Christmas Trail Mix. (He's a little chef in the kitchen and he always claims to be making a tasty treat!) We went to the store and he just picked out his favorite things like MnM's, fruit snacks, marshmallows, pretzels, cereal, etc. Then we came home and mixed it up and packaged it to give to his friends and family. I've been busy making a hybrid craft - a new bow box for the hospital's infant unit (more about that later!) Then I made this cute little tag for his Christmas Trail Mix.
Have a merry Christmas from me to you with this freebie kit - Tasty Treats 4 Christmas
I hope that you will get to spend Christmas with the ones you love.
