When I told my son and daughter they needed to go Christmas shopping for their younger brothers, my son’s response was I have no money.? (He just paid his college tuition)? His suggestion was how about if I give them a coupon for something like I’ll pull them behind the snowmobile or something like that.? I said, “That’s a Fabulous idea!”? I love it and I knew the boys would too, one on one time with their older brother.? I said I think we should make this a family tradition giving of our time or making something for each other.? What a concept huh. LOL? I told them they didn’t have to do anything for us but just for each other would be great.
Well my oldest made a coupon on the computer (he’s going to college majoring in computer science so I knew his coupon would be computer generated). LOL? He made each boy a coupon that said, “One Spend Time with Will coupon; Good for one of the following:? trip to movie theater, going out to eat or you pick activity.”
My daughter who HATES all crafts went into my craft room and made up her coupon for the boys.? Her coupon is good for Sledding at Charlies dump, hot chocolate and board game of their choice.? For someone who HATES crafts I think her coupons are really cute!
My husband and I also received a coupon from Nikki done the same way as above except our coupon says, “Christmas breakfast plus breakfast for 12 Sundays and desert 2 times a month for 9 months!”? Don’t you just Love IT!? I sure do!
I Love our new family tradition and can’t wait for next year! 🙂
Have a Great Day!
