I spent a whoppin' $2.50 plus tax this year... :-) I bought each of my kids and my husband a cute little box of Jelly Belly's that were 3 for $1 and a box of conversation hearts for our home school partners that were also 3 for $1! 4 boxes of each, then I made a little card for my family members and left them by their beds so they could see them when they woke up. That's it for today!


They were very VERY happy with it. :-)
