I then strung them across my kitchen windows with string and clipped them to it with clothes pins. Cute, but simple.
Want to know what we are doing - this is last years list, I used some of the same, but added some service to the garbage man, post delivery lady, the bus driver and a sub for Santa project we are working on for a family we know. Some are super easy, but sometimes service doesn't have to be hard or take a lot of effort. We read them each morning and then talk about it at dinner time. It's a great way to add a little Christmas Cheer to our house!
