Now I realize this may seem like an expensive thing to do however we have had a discussion regarding Birthday Gifts and Christmas Gifts. The subject being... do you really need them? What purpose do they serve and what would you appreciate more? So, in lieu of Birthday Gifts for my kids, we are doing money for grades. We have also decided that Christmas is too commercialized that we are going to plan a family event week, no gifts except for our parents and the little one's and my kids will get something that they really want as it comes up during the year. (Marc is planning a holiday so I'll give him money for his vacation to help him out, Alex-well probably will end up being money for a new laptop or something, or along those lines. Robert is moving to Alberta and into his own house, so it will be a Walmart Card to buy household items. Really, the kids have everything they need, all my kids work and can save and buy themselves things they want. I mean do they really need another sweater or nick-knack from Aunt Martha or toiletries gift basket from Uncle Buck and his new girlfriend? (We don't have an Aunt Martha or Uncle Buck... but you get the picture I'm sure!)
Anyway, here is part two of my freebie from yesterday. I just love these colours and hope you enjoy them too.
