More Christmas Resource Recommendations

In preparing the December newsletter, I asked many moms and dads I know for recommendations on Christmas resources that I could share with you.    I received a great list of resources after I printed the newsletter.  I am going to share that list here.  Some of the resources are duplicates to what was printed in the newsletter but many are not.  I hope you find this helpful.  Thank you to Kathy Van Cott for sharing this.
