    That book looks great about the rowing team. Hadn’t heard of it yet!

    Thanks for the ideas! I have actually tried the bacon flavored jelly beans! :) My primary kids said they loved anything that tasted like bacon, so we gave them the jelly beans. After all their hyped-up talk, they could only stomach one. But they smelled like bacon for the rest of the day. Haha! :)

    Awesome ideas!! Thanks for sharing, much needed!

  4. Kate says:

    thanks for a great list! I wanted to let you know it looks like you got hacked/spammed? There’s a link under the leather wallet to buy a certain men’s medication online… And it doesn’t look like it should be there? I love your gift guides!!!

    What nifty ideas! I’m really loving the personalized book and awesome dad shirt. I think we are doing something like that this year.
