Neighbor Gifts 2007

Thought I'd share what we did for our neighbor gifts this year. I found these cute little "JOY" words that are made out of metal. I got red and white ones, wrapped them in cellophane and tied cute tags on them. The tags say (on the front): "We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year". Then on the back they say,

Christmas is a time of JOY
A time for love and cheer.
A time for making memories
To last throughout the year.

May your Christmas season be filled with JOY
Love, The Ellis Family

We took them around for Family Home Evening last night and it's nice to have that checked off of our list. It was also neat to take them around to our special friends and neighbors and realize how blessed we are to have such special people we love in our lives. In fact, as we took them around I was realizing all the other people I probably should have bought gifts for too....It surprised me how many I felt we'd 'left out' (but they'll never realize that I don't think)....
The picture isn't great - but you get the general idea.
