let's start a discussion
hello november! it is finally getting a bit colder, which means time to break out the socks. stripes please. thank you. and yes, lets talk christmas. david and i have been a rampage in the play room. i took four bags of unplayed with and unneeded toys to the goodwill today. my goal is to simplify, quality over quantity. and to try to get rid of all plastic. except of course for legos. those are still maintaining the top spot for all three kiddos. i also paired down our books to those that we love and read. but i need help. we need new blood. new blood in a variety of ages actually. we are hitting that spread where eliot is into early chapter books, collette is moving into stories with a bit more to them, and arlo is now looking at board books instead of eating them. progress, no? so i want to ask you what books do you love in your home? for older kids? for 3 year olds, for toddlers? give it to me. ive got a pencil and notebook sitting here, waiting for your input.
but wait, i need more help. i've started a list of small, handmade gifts, like the coasters, that i want to make this year, because like jenny i want to give a gift to everyone! i cant, but still i want to. i think it would be great to pair that little something with another little baked something. or maybe some apple butter? i've been washing and collecting glass jars too... what would you like to nibble? your go to quick bread maybe? or cookies? chocolate? yeah chocolate... anyway, im just brainstorming, tell me people. tell me.
*thank you for all the great suggestions! i have already started a great list. keep em' coming!
