Menu Plan Monday: Week of December 20th, 2010

I took a lot of care and time putting this plan together.  Why you ask? It is Christmas week and my children are home from school the whole week.  Im actually nervous about this.  I want them to look back on Christmas and remember a nice time.  My plan is to have a Christmas themed craft or activity each day leading up to Christmas.  If you look at my plan, you will notice that I have a lot of cookies planned.  The craziest part of having all these cookies to eat is that we really don't eat many cookies. LOL.  But growing up, we always had the variety of cookies and I want to pass that onto my kids.

I once had a beautiful experience involving Christmas cookies. A neighbor I was not entirely familiar with knocked on my door and handed me a tin full of cookies.  We were so pleased and honored that they even thought of us.  It really made the holiday magical.  We were NOT reluctant to eat the cookies either ~ lol.  Turned out to be the best cookies we ever ate!!!  I bought a pack of tins and I think I'll pass this nice deed forward.
