I haven't entered a Works for Me Wednesday carnival item in a while. Mostly because I thought I was fresh out of ideas. It takes a different way of thinking, you know. You gotta think that other peeps out there aren't living the exact same life as you :-)
My sister and I have a tradition of doing the crazy After Thanksgiving shopping. And this past Friday, I added an idea that my sister has been doing. If you are related to me, you are REQUIRED to stop reading right now...I mean it, I will KNOW if you read this!!!
Under my tree right now are 4 packages, one for each member of the family, and the instructions are that they are to be opened on Christmas Eve. I am about to tell you what is inside them, but I must threaten my family AGAIN to STOP READING!!!
Inside the packages is a pair of PJ's, mom's matches daughter's, and dad's matches son's (sort of). The idea is that we wear those that night and make for some cute Christmas morning photos. In fact, one year we had a friend send a family newsletter-like letter with a picture of her 5 kiddos in PJ's that were similar in colors and they were piled on top of each other in front of their tree. So cute!! That letter came more around the New Year instead of Christmas but it was lots of fun anyway. So that is what is about to work for me, works for my sister, and may just work for you if you choose to adopt this idea.
