    Christmas tree baubles

    My girlfriends kid got a christmas tree bauble from her teacher. It was a nice red one, not expensive, but the teacher had taken the time to write the childs name, the year, and his name on the bauble with a gold pen. The child was delighted, as he was a favourite teacher and he will be remembered every year at christmas time. I guess this assumes that all families celebrate christmas and have a tree - might not be true for some areas.

    My best presents include a coffee mug that reminds me of the child each time I use it, and the gifts that the children have made or baked themselves. I treasure the notes and cards and each year when the Christmas decorations box comes out, I read through all the messages from previous years. The effort the kids put into thinking what to write and handwriting it, and sometimes making the card too, that means a lot to me.

    This year we decided the $2 I might have spent on a gift should go to charity. I designed a christmas card on the computer and mailed it to each child with a photo from camp. The kids love to get letters addressed to them at home, and the parents appreciate the photos.
