Her name is Brianna

At the university, we adopt angels for Christmas. My angel's name, this year, is Brianna. I don't know about other people, but I spend a lot of time thinking about my angel. I think about her mom, their living conditions, what kind of life they may live. I have no idea as to Brianna's hair color, her build, ethnicity. All I know is that she is nine years old, her sizes, her requests.
I think about how she may never get new clothes. I think about how happy these gifts will make her mom. My goal was to get as much bang for my buck as possible.
hat - $1.50, two pairs of gloves - $1.50
two pairs of socks - something like $2-$3.00she asked for hair accessories- bought these for $2.00
Bratz doll - again, her request.
Personally I don't get the attraction...this doll was $9.99 she asked for clothes. pants- $10.00, top- $7.00
sweatshirt- $9.00

be sure to check out Milo in the upper right hand corner!

Brianna, I hope you like pink and brown! I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas. At the university, we are also supporting a children's coloring book, books, crayons, pencils drive and supplies for a women's shelter. At our council meeting in Indianapolis, we collected gloves, underwear, belts and socks for inner-city school children. Please remember those who are not as blessed as you are. Even a small donation will make a big difference.

The Mouse Has Been Caught!
Did our cats catch the mouse?
Did Doug's traps catch the mouse?
What caught the mouse?
The sticky sheet that I told Doug was my "before I moved in with Doug" method of catching mice. When all else failed, he went out and bought the sticky sheet and it caught the mouse on the first night that he put it out!
"I told you so!"

Ew, I hate sticky traps! But I'm glad it worked for you!

I love the gifts you found for your angel. I had so much fun shopping for my little 2-yo boy.
