We have really enjoyed making Christmas gifts for our families. I won't lie, part of the reason we began this is because it is somewhat less expensive way to do Christmas gifts. However that won't be why we will continue to do this. It does take a lot of work and forethought and planning, however I feel like it is so much more meaningful to us and the reciever to know that we put all that time and work into a present just for them. I'd much rather be at home making something for someone that elbowing my way through the mall or walmart to get the latest plastic piece of crap! I know the kids may really want a DS game instead of a crummy hat that Aunt Jen made for them, but I think they will look back and realize that the homemade gifts meant a lot more. Merry Christmas!! And Happy Fall!
