I'm soooo glad that it's Friday, and the week is finally over!
I volunteered this year to be the chairperson for the HOLIDAY GIFT SHOP at Hannah's school (didn't really know what I got myself into at the time). The program sponsored by the school PTA and designed to allow the student to come and shop for their parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, or anyone whom they wish to buy gifts for for Christmas. The kids really get excited over this, and they also learned important lessons on counting, budgeting, and consumerism while they shop. A lot of the kids, even the younger ones, are quite a shopper. They came in, knew exactly what to buy, whom to buy it for, leave with bags in their hands, and big smiles on their faces.
Hannah's class came in today. There were a couple items that I hinted to her that I would like to receive, but she might had something else in mind.....it's a big secret. As soon as we got home from school, Hannah secretly wrapped everything and placed everything on the table next to the tree. (We can't put anything under the tree yet, just in case, the little doxies get into it.) Soooo, we will have to wait 'til Christmas to find out what she picked out for us.
Thanks to the other volunteers and especially to Sandie, PTA President, who was there and helped me everyday, the Holiday Boutique was a success. BUT, I HAD NEVER WORKED SO HARD IN MY LIFE!! I'm just simply exhausted.
Honeeeeyyy.... where's my cocktail? *LOL*
