A Lot Of Bags...

Good morning all! How has your week been going? Are you ready for Christmas? I think we are. Just two more boxes to get out and we are all set. Yay!

When looking back on my day yesterday I was thinking that I didn't really get much done. I did take the kids to the assisted living place to carol (and then took my car of kids for hot chocolate...that was fun and one of the benefits of having kids at a small private school, you can get away with that type of thing...lol!), did laundry, and made 11 of the bags that you see above for Kyler's teachers (well, 10 are for the teachers the extra one is in case we forgot someone)! The bags were super easy though. Click on the photo to see them better. I cut them with my Cricut so all I had to do was choose the paper I wanted to use. Can you say easy button? I know this photo shows the more girlie type of papers but there are four male type of bags in the back for the four male teachers that Kyler has. I had bought a large bag of Ghirardelli chocolate through Ebates (with an 18% rebate!) a few weeks ago for this purpose. Each of the gift bags above has five candies in it (I'm happy to have a few leftover). The bags measure 4 1/4" x 3 3/8". I got the SVG file for these at My Scrap Chick.

Today is a pretty big day for our family. My oldest son, Scott, is going to an interview for an internship in Olympia and Jon is heading to the orthopedic surgeon this afternoon to see what is to be done with his fingers. I guess it will be another day of "praying without ceasing." I seem to be doing that a lot recently.

Anyway, I hope you have a super day today! Smiley from millan.net

Adorable little bags, Lorie! I have to look into something like then when Santa delivers my Cricut. I'll keep your family in my prayers!

Your gifts look adorable and I'm sure they'll be so appreciated--YUM! =) Hope all goes well for the boys!! We took Carly to the ortho yesterday to get braces put on. She's not too happy right now. Mostly feeling a lot of discomfort and then there's the self-conscious thing at school. Can't get her to smile even at home. Hope it wears off SOON! LOl. Don't want no sour-pusses for the holidays! ;) Heehee.

That's soo great that you're kids are able to attend a small private school. I really wish we could have afforded that. Guess I should get on the ball and make something for C's teacher! One day left! =)
