  •  Well, eight little girls are going to have new (6+ / 0-)

    coats and gloves. I'm working on the boys this week, then the blankets in the meantime.

    I'll probably do a lot of shopping AFTER the holidays, too, when things go on major sale. Winter lasts a long time.

    •  You sure enough got that right! (5+ / 0-)

      I would always watch for those sales when I was teaching, and I would have enough gloves on hand for every student the following x-mas.  My students were frequently without means to get gloves, and it was something I could afford for everybody if I got them off-season!

      We also did a tree in the school office we decorated with hats, gloves and scarves.  We would donate them to the migrant center in time for their annual holiday gathering.

      I guess I need to start collecting again!

      Eight little girls (and boys later) are going to be very happy!!  And WARM!

      If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever.
