Hello everybody! I hope you guys are well.
Here’s the countdown at my house.
My cousin, Janice, sent this little Santa chalkboard to my oldest daughter when she was about 1 or 2 years old, but she wasn’t old enough to grasp the concept so I stored it away. I found it the other day when we brought out all of our Christmas decorations. I showed it to Olivia, who’s five now, and explained what it was. She absolutely loved the chalkboard and the fact that it was going to show her how many days until Christmas. Thanks cuz!
As for gift ideas for children I absolutely love jigsaw puzzles, especially personalized ones because they can teach your child how to spell their own name. There are many places where you can get a personalized jigsaw puzzle, but I like the web site www.frecklebox.com. They have many personalized items (I also love their story books) and I have given many gifts from this website. Sign up to receive emails so you can get discounts on their merchandise, which is very helpful if you’re on a budget. Here’s a couple of their puzzles with my daughter’s first and middle name, which I got a long time ago. They have a glossy finish to them and currently my youngest daughter is having fun putting these together. I will be getting one with her name soon for Christmas.
Once my girls are done playing with these I’m going to tape the puzzle together and frame them.
Stay alert, stay alive.
Until next time…
