Happy New Year! 🎉
I’d love to hear if you gave or received any creative gifts this holiday season that made your heart sing!
Every year instead of giving material gifts, my West Coast clan creates a “Holiday Hoopla” for the folks in the MidWest. We plan a whole day of fun activities with games and prizes and lots of silliness. Then we top it off with a holiday dinner.
This year the theme was “Game-a-palooza” and it was loads of fun! We created a Scavenger Hunt, played a twist on a favorite family card game, and created personalized BINGO cards.
As well, we held a contest for the creation of the best board game box, jingle, and pitch for the (non-existent) “Holiday Hoopla” board game.
That’s a photo of my niece and me up above, along with one of our spirited light-up alien balloon friends. And that’s my fun family to the left!
I’m still visiting family, so if you comment, it may take me a day or two to respond, but I REALLY DO want to hear about any great gifts OR EXPERIENCES you had over the holidays. (Our special experiences with people we love can be some of the BEST gifts!!!)
Thank you for being a part of my world.
My wish for you: May your 2019 be filled with pinpricks of light. When you are doing well, may you be the light for others. When times are tough, may you be the recipient of the light. We’re all here for one another.
Seek celebration, even in the dark corners—
