I've decided that I'm doing a homemade Christmas this year. I'm way excited! I have lots of things to make so you all can't get mad at me for thinking about Christmas in February. I have ideas already for my moms, dads, nephews, brothers, and sisters. I'm still trying to solidify a few, but if you want to know what I'm making, ask. Except, of course, what I'm making you - that's not fair :) We did a homemade Christmas when I was 7 or 8 and my whole family participated. I loved it. My grandma made us all some fuzzy blankets and we all still have them. My parents made a Barbie house for us, and it's in the garage waiting for Kaitlyn to be old enough and have cousins to join her. It was so much fun, and we all still remember it and cherish the gifts, long after more recent ones have been forgotten. I think it's a great way to share the true spirit of Christmas - giving of yourself!
