The gift of coffee is good. A bottle of Minnesota wine is even better (and surprising! Wine from Minnesota–who knew?)
But the gift that really touched my heart this year had a crooked smile and heart of peanut M&M’s.
I love little homemade gifts from my students; probably even more so now that I’m a parent.
However, I’m not as good as a gift giver to my kids’ teachers. They had to settle for notepads and a gift card this year.
Isn’t this little mouse adorable? One of my preschooler’s moms made one for each student in my class.
I also received some hot chocolate truffles that I’m dying to try. The directions tell me to heat up some milk, drop the truffle in and stir until melted. I’d share with you if I could. Really I would.
The first week of our holiday break is almost over, and it’s been full of preparation. We’ve been making and wrapping gifts and looking at our neighbor’s Christmas lights. Lily and Emmy watched Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer for the very first time. I mailed many, although not all, of our Christmas cards.
The girls have eagerly been counting down the days!
