Today is Day 22 of my Countdown to Christmas gift to Jack .... and today I have one of Jack's and my favorite things to do in the morning ....... I will be taking Jack down to Beyond Bread for an Espresso, Sourdough Roll with Brie Cheese Breakfast. SERIOUSLY his favorite breakfast made for champions!
As MANY of you know ....... I have seven school age grandkids that I make holiday treats for. I started this when my oldest grandson was in preschool and he is now in middle school .... and LONG LIVE the tradition. All is fair in love and grandchildren ..... and my oldest grandson is now joined by six other grandkids that I just can't disappoint not making treats for. SO.....while the kids are still interested in me doing these treats for their classmates ..... I will continue making holiday treats and driving myself half crazy doing it (OH BUT WHAT A WAY TO GO!). That means I make a minimum of 175 treats at each holiday for the kids and typically I try to make a different treat for each of the grandkids. Let me share what I made four of my seven grandkids for their Christmas Treats.
I picked up some Christmas/Holiday pencils and put each into a cello bag and created a bag topper for each of the pencils - making for a fun little treat for Zev to share with his fellow classmates.
I got SERIOUSLY LUCKY with my three granddaughters ....... each of them requested I make my Magically Reindeer Food treats for their classmates. This was simply adding oatmeal and red sprinkles to a small bag and adding a bag topper that has a "Magical Reindeer Food Poem" attached to it. The kids sprinkle the reindeer food on their front lawns Christmas Eve night and the red sprinkles help Santa and the reindeer find the kids home on Christmas Eve night. I'm not sure why I didn't take a picture of all 77 of those ..... HOLY BUCKETS ...... at one point I was up to my eyeballs in MAGICALLY REINDEER FOOD.
I'll be back tomorrow to share a couple Christmas gifts I received from some of my club gals - hope you can come back and join me for that share. Keep Living Your Dream!
