Our family does not participate in the national tradition of mass spending on this lovely day after Thanksgiving. I hope you have found something better to do with your time and money.

Today the boys and I are taking the day off of school to make homemade Christmas gifts for our family. This year at least 90% of our gift giving will be homemade, and not store bought. I have been encouraging my friends and family to do the same. Hopefully, this year will mark the start of another cool tradition for our family.

For ideas on homemade Christmas gifts see my post from earlier this week titled, "Homespun Christmas". Enjoy spending today with family, and keep your pocketbook in your pocket!

Perfect. I am with you. I know I love to receive handmade gifts. They say so much. You listed some great handmade gift ideas. Cool chocolate spoons. I think I will try that one.

Rethinking Christmas. Give your time. Give PRESENCE this year!

peace & grace in Christ,
