Holiday Cheer Contest Winner!

Holiday Cheer Contest Winner!

We're pleased to announce our HOLIDAY CHEER contest winner! Congrats to teachingthe3rs who won a $50 Amazon Gift Card for her response to our question "Do you have a favorite holiday tradition...?":

"When our kids were around 4-8 years old, we took each child to a dollar store to buy one present for each other person in the family - siblings, parents, grandparents. It let them focus on each person to decide what would be the best gift for them, without spending too much, or (for our perfectionists) worrying about not being able to create the perfect handmade gift."
