First up, let's get crafty and remember the true spirit of the holidays with some well-voiced thoughts from Mommy's Memorandum who knows there is more to the season of gifting than buying those commercial gifts! Mommy's Memorandum offers some great insight to the season of gifting!
When I married and we had little money and the holidays had my husband's large family beyond our budget, I returned to that homemade holiday. I spent night's hand sewing blankets, dolls, making "puddle hoppers" and more. Through the years, Homemade Holiday has been my go to. When my oldest was five and we arrived with boxes filled with things we'd made--ornaments, toys, food and more, he puffed out his chest and replied, "Look at all we have to GIVE!"
My crafting days slowed down and these past few years have been commercialized at our home. Last year I went home for the first time in ten years. As store bought gifts continued to be opened, I paused and said, "What happened to homemade Christmas?" There was a quiet that filled the room as we all remembered those moments. This year my baby sister is returning to the tradition. She's spending her time, creating magical gifts by hand and heart. Hers will be the gifts I am most excited to open. The ones I celebrate.
Whether your budget it tight or not, consider a homemade holiday. There are so many options...we've:
- dipped plastic spoons in flavored chocolate and caramel for coffee stirrers
- created ornaments--as simple as tracing our new baby's hand on construction paper or using clothes pins to make reindeer
- Taken #10 cans, add cord and made Puddle Hoppers.
- Made neck warmers with rice and dishtowels
- drawn circles on paper and colored the center red for target practice
Setting a realistic holiday shopping budget, simply means you need to prioritize and plan how you will spend your money.
Decide how much you will spend on on each person and remember If you overspend in one area, you'll have to make up for it by spending less on something else. Also, be creative. Think Frugal and DIY!
Setting a realistic budget doesn't mean you can't have the perfect holiday on a budget. It is only a means of making it affordable so you can enjoy your holiday, without worrying about how much it cost.

Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer star in The Lone Ranger, from Jerry Bruckheimer Films and Director Gore Verbinski. It’s a wild ride of high velocity action, explosions and gunfights that brings the famed masked legend to life through brand-new eyes. The Lone Ranger (Hammer), the last of his kind, teams with Tonto (Depp), a dark and mysterious vigilante, to seek vengeance after justice has failed them. It’s a runaway train of epic surprises, as these two unlikely heroes must learn to work together before the ultimate showdown between good and evil explodes. You can read the full review here.
The Lone Ranger will learn that justice is as justice does and his personal loss will lead him to find that he can do more than he ever could through the law! The horses name will be discussed, the theme song hooves it at the end of the movie as you can feel the energy of the movie and the white hat that The Lone Ranger wears will all show its roots while you watch! If you want to know how things became the movie is a great resource for learning the who, what and why about The Lone Ranger, but don't talk during the movie because if you blink you might miss the details!

It's never too late to start preventive care against diabetes.
Colgate Total and the American Diabetes Association launched a new campaign called “Watch Your Mouth!” to help raise awareness surrounding the often-overlooked link between oral health and diabetes. According to the CDC OralHealthAndDiabetes.com, people with diabetes are two times more likely to develop gum disease. But there are a few simple steps we can take to help prevent early gum disease: o Make sure you visit your dentist. While your doctor and certified diabetes educator play an important role in helping with your diabetes, so does your dentist.o Follow healthy dental habits at home. Research shows that brushing twice a day with Colgate Total® toothpaste can help improve gum health in as little as four weeks.
Diabetes has affected a large number of people all over the world. Alone in America, the count is in millions. Reasons are many starting from busy life style to eating habits but results are
dangerous. Once affected from Diabetes, it takes all sweetness away hence; we need to be very cautious about our life style and eating habits. Otherwise, like those millions suffering from diabetes, we may need to say bye bye to sweetness and a lot other things from life.
Moreover, we have to be on daily doses to control diabetes because once it reaches to advance level, insulin will be a part of daily diet. Influences all over body parts including kidney, heart, nerves, eyes, muscles, etc. Even it affects oral health as well. Here on diabetes awareness month, we have to promise us that we will beat diabetes and will not let it affect our body and oral health. Tooth decay, periodontal diseases, infection, delayed healing, bleeding of gum and delayed healing, and so on. Whenever you get a sign of tooth problem, consult a specialist and share diabetes history with him/her too so that he can suggest the best treatment. Do not hide anything about diabetes. Tell him/her if you are diagnosed with diabetes, current sugar level, etc
I remember that when one of my friends mother has been diagnosed with diabetes, and now medicines have become a part of her daily diet. Whenever she has an injury, it takes time to heal. She cannot enjoy life at the fullest, as she cannot eat sweets anymore, she cannot eat chocolates anymore that she loved a lot, she cannot add sugar in her tea/coffee, and a lot more she has scarified. Please do not make your life a hell. Take preventive care against diabetes, stay healthy, and have fun in the life.
