My Intentions for the 2009 Holidays

My list for Day One in the Jessica Sprague Holidays in Hand Class:

  • Emphasize the spirit of giving and the story of the ultimate gift.
  • Create new traditions with the boys for the holidays.
  • Reach out to those less fortunate than us.
  • Bake treats with the kids.
  • Explore anonymous giving - Kris Kringle or Secret Santa
  • Share the stories behind meaningful ornaments or decorations.
  • Participate in outings, more time and adventures together vs. stuff
  • Enjoy the wonder of Christmas lights in the dark.
  • Make time to be together with extended family.
  • Make our own holiday crafts & decorations.
