The holidays are right around the corner and Nestor and I have been running around gathering supplies. Every year there is the regular gift list...but the last four years it's grown exponentially. We have lots of therapists, local pharmacies, nurses, Jozette (our respite worker) and Amelia's whole school crew...along with all the usual suspects. So what to do?
I've always enjoyed being crafty/baking so I've taken to making things for everyone each year. Last year it was gourmet caramel apples with Belgium chocolate, crushed nuts and oreos -- they went over really well! This year I'm mixing it up and doing cookies in a jar (you know, where you layer the ingredients) and my (slightly famous) white chocolate popcorn. I got the initial popcorn recipe from my Aunt Andi (thanks!) several years ago and have added and subtracted stuff to it over the years. It's great to give to a larger place, like our pharmacies, Amelia's school, etc.
What do you do for the people who help your world go round?
