secret santa the r & b way
Enter Secret Santa, better for the body than Red 40 but none the less a new fun challenge to our choice to live Simple. A ten dollar gift here is wonderful, one over there & there & there is taxing. Don't get me wrong we are giving gifts to a few, cards to others, & baked goods all around. This isn't about being a Grinch it is about finding a safer way for us to show love & appreciation to our loved ones & friends than spending our grocery money. (too honest?)
It is about it not being about the gifts.
The girls on Beach's gym team drew names and got a paper of the girl's likes & wishes. Beach got a very sweet, very hard working little gymnast who is always smiling even when things aren't working out for her, & I have to say usually things aren't working out for her.
Gymnastics is not all fun and games, not everybody wins medals. I think those girls who just keep fighting & fighting for every skill are amazing. We hope our little Smiling Fighter likes this all handmade M.O.B Troll Doll & as I posted on FB I am challenging the myth I can't gift wrap.
