Day 9. Gift Cards! I know, I know. Gift cards…Sexy? Hardly. But hear us out. In this case gift cards are a gift that keeps giving. Note that this Kwik Trip gift card says $110 dollars.

Day 5, Beth’s turn. The flask, not used often, but it sure comes in handy from time to time. What R Dub loves about this gift. A flask with a fuel gauge! Form, fit and function.

R Dub’s first gift to Beth. Officially the 2nd Day of Christmas for us was December 2nd when Beth got home from work. What is it? It’s a 24″ x 36″ door mat welcoming guests to our front door.

Holiday Traditions – Day 1: The Twelve (Nonconsecutive) Days of Christmas

Day #1 of The Twelve Nonconsecutive Days of Christmas was prior to Thanksgiving.
