Countdown to Christmas

13 Oct

I have been thinking how close Christmas is. Maybe because it snowed here over the weekend and Halloween is around the corner. I have five kids in school….three in elementary. It gets so expensive at Christmas with teacher’s gifts, gifts for neighbors, friends and family. Over the summer, I read a blog about making vanilla extract. I thought that would be a fabulous idea for teacher’s gifts…not the usual mug. I think that I am going to try the recipe in the first blog. I have included a few more to reference.

The “standing” time seems to differ, but I am still going to give it a try.
