Sharing Some Gingerbread Men

These guys are from Le Gourmet Chef.

I bought 6 of them last Christmas and 10 of them this Christmas!

Brady gave one to his teacher last year and he'll give one to his teacher this year too.
  I put different kinds of Christmas candies and cookies in them.

I also bought one for myself!
And gave one away as a hostess gift.

The gingerbread men in the top picture are for my friend April.  She is going through
chemo right now and I offered to put something together for her girl's teachers and bus drivers.
  I was really excited to give them to her last night....and she was
thrilled.  April and her husband have three beautiful daughters.
They're such a great family. April takes a lot of pride in being a good mom...and it shows.
Anyway, these last few months have been very difficult, but my friend has showed nothing
but courage and grace through this whole dumb cancer thing.  I'm really proud of her.

The ladies at Eighteen25 made this
super cute tag.
If you want to download a copy of
it, you can find it HERE.

Those are so cool! I thought they were smaller but *wow* how great that they are huge. Using them as a serving tray is a great idea. Love how they fit the toothpicks perfectly

What a great friend you are! I bet she really appreciated it, more than you know. And I should talk to you like 2 weeks before my kids should be giving their presents. You have great ideas!
