    I've never been in this place before, no money to buy presents. Luckily my kids aren't kids, they are adults, all making at least 3X what I am. So, my gifts will be cookies and bread. On another thread we were discussing some recipes. Here's one that I'm looking at:

    You know, I can buy just about anything I would want to have but the gifts that really means the most to me are the ones that somebody took the time to personally make. Now, that's a gift. Anything else is just a present. You can't go wrong with home made bread and cookies. You did good, girl. Don't be ashamed of giving a gift from your heart.

    Thanks for that! I'm going to do this for one kid, the other two are getting breakfast breads, since the first child doesn't go sweet. LOL!

    All of them are getting Snickerdoodles, my own recipe. Seems the darling daughter made them from a recipe. She didn't like. So, I'll make them and give them my recipe. ;)

    Cookies from mom... priceless. :D

    During our lean years I put an old aquarium pump in a bowl, dumped some rocks on top and filled it with water. Voila- instant fountain.

    Every year for Christmas my grandmother used to make us all Ponhaus. We looked forward to it all year long (having it for breakfast on Christmas morning was a huge treat). Homemade gifts are the best.

    My son really loved my bourbon balls ... so did his sarge. :lol:

    I wish I could get into the spirit enough to do some baking. I'm just so totally not into Christmas this year.
