As you probably have noticed, I don’t usually review things on the blog. But this one was too good to pass, although you might notice after reading this post that I am not very good at reviewing things. I was offered a free digital copy of “Christmas Crafts for Kids” by Beth Gorden in exchange for a review, my opinions are my own, I was not told what to say or to say that I like it.
(Nov 28, 2013) Nico typed his own Santa letter today! I asked and he wanted to write it in French. All he wanted to write was “Dear Santa, I moved to Calgary, Joyeux Happy Noël”, so I helped with ideas of what to write since it was his first time. We first typed it in a draft email, with me spelling he wrote about half of it, after a while we switched and he did the spaces only, he said it’s because I’m faster
(November 22, 2013) I like the Elf on the Shelf idea, if you don’t make it too creepy, which we don’t. Nico normally looks for the elf when he gets up and is happy to find him, but this year we are having the elf give him fun things to do (like materials to make Christmas cards or a DVD and popcorn for a movie day). If you are looking for things for your elf to do/bring, you can find a great list here at The Connection We Share.
(November 15, 2013) I got recent blood tests, telling me I have high cholesterol, so I asked the doctor what I can do naturally to lower my cholesterol levels, obviously other than Cheerios. He suggested Metamucil, Benefiber or All-Bran and we went with All-Bran, since it’s more natural and everybody can have it to increase fiber in our diet.
