I crossed the guys off the list and invited the girls for a shopping & wrapping party.
After we shopped for our three foster teens, we came back to my place, had bacon-wrapped dates (mmm) and burnt queso (Velveeta crock-potted on high for two hours=FAIL), and a little surprise white elephant-ish gift game. I wanted to give the girls a little thank you, so I whipped up some handmade gifts.
Lesson learned: make an even bigger difference by making charity fun.
And thanks to these bloggers for the inspiration!
