  1. I love the Lighted Gloves idea! This article does remind me of years ago I opened a gift to find a fire extinguisher. Everyone went silent. Um, my house had burnt up the year before. I laughed and said I needed it! Our gift giving was Steal a Gift at that time. Like, we all brought a wrapped gift, took a number, then chose a gift, opened it. The next person could then Steal from previously opened gifts or open a new one. The person who has a gift stolen then gets to either steal or open new. I’d had 3 gifts stolen already! This fire extinguisher I wanted to Keep. I dared anybody to Steal it, lol! Many years later I used it to put out a clothes dryer fire!

    1. Hi Wendy, oh I LOVE LOVE LOVE your comment! I love playing that game! I bet the fire extinguisher was the best gift ever!! Wow, a clothes dryer fire would be scary!! I had someone come and professionally clean out my dryer vents. I’m glad I had mine cleaned! Yikes! Linda

  2. We do stockings every year, DH and I put gas cards in my Sons and DIL’s stockings, the kids get different things, this year Grandma is doing goofy socks for them along with the candy and fruit. My DH’s grand aunt hand knit stockings for all her grand nieces and nephews (our boys and their cousins) with their names on them one year. Son2 says it isn’t Christmas until they go up. My DH’s family draws names for those 18 and older. It came about because of economics when DH was younger. We draw at Thanksgiving and have a really fun time as you can’t get yourself or your spouse. OH and if you get the same name 2 years in a row , can’t get that name either, one of my BIL’s got my name 3 years in a row and I got his the same 3 years in a row, so MIL put that in place that year after we jokingly gave each other our lists.To save time BIL said, LOL

  3. I used to like Burt’s Bees products, until the original company was bought out by one of the mega-corporations… May I suggest also looking into Badger Balm products? From a quick look at the Burt’s link, I think Badger (at badgerbalm.com) has very similar ones (and many more!) It’s right here in N.H., is B Corp, and most, if not all, products are organic. I have a Badger lip balm in my pocket at all times–often a tin of original Badger Balm hand cream–and a lavender-and-bergamot Sleep Balm on my bedside table!
