Happy Holidays...

The holiday season is bearing down on us...everybody is rushing to buy presents and send Christmas cards. People are rushing to the mall, the local WalMart or to the closest computer. Spending is up, even at a time when disposable income is down. I know people who buy everything their kids want so they can have a good Christmas. Tha's great, but when they get everything that they want at Christmas, they expect that to happen all year long. I know other people who only buy their kids 3 gifts...Baby Jesus received three gifts and so do they. Fisher and I fall somewhere in the middle. We try to get the kids things that they want, without being too crazy...and three gifts under the just doesn't seem enough.

If you are looking to do something wonderful and meaning full and have a few extra dollars to give, check out the link below.

Gold Star Mothers deserve our support and respect, and I for one, am happy to be loosely associated with the girls that are putting this fundraising effort together.
