Santa’s Workshop

For the last few years, our ward Primary presidency has put on a “Santa’s Workshop” for the kids.  People in the ward donate items and then the kids get to “shop” for presents for their parents, siblings, and grandparents.  The kids LOVE it.  And I have to say as a parent I love it too because they can get presents for each other and it doesn’t cost me anything!  This is the first year that Layton got to participate.  He picked out a present for Mandy and then a present for Dallin, and then of course he picked out a present for Layton.  And he had to have it wrapped to.

And do you think that he was going to wait until Christmas to open his present from himself to himself?  NO way!

So now he has added a little puppy to his collection of favorite stuffed animals.

The kids left the workshop with quite a haul of presents.  I am most interested to see what they picked out for each other and for us!  I have a feeling it is going to be quite interesting!

That is a great idea. I was surprised to get home from my trip to find a bunch of presents from the girls. They thought it was awesome. Guess I picked a good weekend to leave the girls in Middleburg! ;)

Yes it is a great idea and it will be a hoot when you open them up. I will say that Kate had a little help with her or Kim would have been really surprised!

That is so cool, I will have to remember that if I'm ever called to be in a Primary presidency!
