I didn't mean to take these few weeks off of blogging -- it just happened! The Kuhn girls have been having a blast with our Christmas sheltering. Here's a bit of what we've been up to:
Melanie made these for the Sunday School class she helps with and some other children, too.
Melanie's sweet little helper:
Emily made these for the 4th grade class where she did her practicum. Twenty-five children who stole her heart this semester were given the makings for Snowman Soup. You can find the printable here: http://coupon-wizards.com/snowman-soup/
Melanie helped me make Monster Cookies for my writing class at Heartland Christian School. I took enough for the whole school -- I think the Headmaster was the most excited.

I'm sure baking and gifting shelter is going on in your corner of the world, too. I'm opting for simple and relaxed this year -- enjoying both the process and the giving.
What's your favorite recipe for gifting?
