neighbor gift 2011

I love the look of luminaries. This is what we did for our neighbor gifts this year. We gave everyone a luminary kit.
5-white paper bags
about a pound of birdseed or kitty litter.
It was so fun to drive around the neighborhood and see all the luminaries.

Be Unique

For our Combined lesson this month I thought the girls needed to hear how special and unique they were. It ended up being a great lesson.
I played this clip from President Uchtodorfs talk You are not Forgotten
I also played the song Walk Tall, You're a Daughter of God
I attached this to a little glittery snowflake I purchased at Walmart for $1.97 for a pack of 20

The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus

My sis-in-law bought me this book a few years ago for our Favorite things night. It has become one of my favorite traditions. We sit down and read a chapter a night as a family. You can find it on Amazon
