Christmas shopping catalogs have been arriving left and right and the other week I let the kids create a cut and glue Christmas wish list as a simple craft.

Raise your hand if your husband is the hardest person to buy gifts for. That’s me … raising both hands. Because, ya’ll, Dominic is THE hardest person to shop for.

Did I let Jemma circle her little heart out when the Toys R Us Christmas catalog arrived last week?  Of course I did. I’m not the mom version of Wicked Witch of the West! But, when it comes down to what I’ll actually be spending my money on this Christmas, it probably won’t be found in […]
