It seems like children get way too much stuff for Christmas. So much that they are overwhelmed by it all. Hmmm, I'm sounding like a...grandma, which I am. I'll bet my own grandparents said the same thing when my cousins and I were little. My maternal grandparents gave each of us cousins a paper sack with an orange, an apple, some nuts and candy and $1.00. But that was when a dollar would buy five gallons of gas! My paternal grandparents were more indulgent, as I was an only grandchild on that side for a long time. Dolls--I still have Daisy--and other toys, until I began reading, and then every year I received a subscription to National Geographic. I loved every issue. Anyway, this year we got simple gifts for the six grandkids and grandniece and nephew, but I made everyone a pillowcase and put them on pillows. Here are five of the eight that I made. They loved them! I think I'll do this every year.
