Suzy Soup

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:



Snowman 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!!

Merry Christmas!



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!

Becky, Thanks so much for stopping by. I love meeting new blogging friends. What a great idea with the coffee mug. These are in abundance at our local Dollar Store. A little creativity goes a long ways. Thanks for sharing.

Blessings to you and by the way, I am a Pastor's daughter. He's retired now.

Blessings to you this holiday season.

I forgot about snowman soup! Thanks for the reminder!

On my company girls post, I linked to a fun site where you can create snowflakes online. Just for fun...check it out. Warning...it can be addictive!

Enjoyed popping by today!
