For a Christmas service project this year, we chose to purchase presents for 6 needy children who may not have a happy Christmas without donations. We received the names from a project in our city that began many years ago. Red Bag Project in KC. The kids and I loaded up the van with 6 large red bags filled with the wrapped gifts and dropped them off at a nearby church and the toys will be distributed to the kids.
Making memories is sometimes only for the REMEMBERING years later! One such event that is not always so delightful DURING the moment is taking the kids to see Santa. However, keep in mind that the photographs of the moment 19 years later don't come with sounds of screaming toddlers or teens nor do they require a fashion consultant's opinion on what not to wear!
After spending an untold amount of money on Rubbermaid storage boxes and surviving hours spent looking for carefully crafted Christmas decor, lights, and extension cords long enough, but not too long, I have finally arrived at "my" tracking system! (It only took me 25 years!)
With this system, I can put up my decorations in one day (with the help of the children and hubby)!

When I happened upon this "crafting" product, I was hooked.
Made by the trusted brand, Crayola, the clay-like substance is not only moldable for small fingers, but it is very lightweight for displaying, storing, and shipping. Young and old creative personalities enjoy working with and making something out of this affordable product. The clay dries quickly and can be brought to life with a little craft paint color or simply displayed in its natural form which comes in all primary colors.
And if it does not turn out how one envisioned...........
