I make homemade Christmas gifts for the kids every year and this is the first year that every body received the same gift – minky cuddle blankets. My initial plan was to make blankets for everyone. After buying almost half the fabric – I realized we have plenty of blankets in the house and perhaps only a few kids would be getting blankets for Christmas. I ran the idea by Steve and there was no hesitation – everyone gets a blanket. So back the fabric store to find the rest of the fabric.
Christmas morning, Cannon was the first to open his homemade gift and as soon as he opened it, Hallie looked at me confused, “Mom, are you sure you didn’t accidentally switch the gifts?” She wanted his blanket bad. I loved her sheepish face when she opened her own blanket that perfectly matched her room. I find these blankets all over the house – they’re loved and used all the time.
