My dear, long-lost friend, Suzy may come visit this weekend. Who is this Suzy I speak of? Why none other than Miss Suzy Snowflake! I am sad to say she may not "stick" around this visit.
In honor of my friend, Suzy, I thought it was only fitting to visited our local dollar store today for some Snowman mugs. When the girls were little, I use to make "Snowman Soup" for their teachers, our neighbors, etc. This year I decided it was time to bring back the Snowman Soup. It is a cheap and fun (and SIMPLE) gift to give to others. There are many poems to use but here is what I attach to my soup:
Our footprints always follow us on days when it’s been snowing.
They always show us where we’ve been but never where we’re going.
So to warm your spirits on a wintry night; this ought to do the trick
A cup of Snowman Soup complete with a stirring stick!!
Yep, it is that simple. Find a mug with a picture of a Snowman (or Snowlady----sorry, I couldn't resist!). Put in a packet of hot chocolate, add a stirring stick (candy cane), personalize your poem and you have a gift for under a $1.25!
I think I'll have a cup right now!
