Simple Gifts

So, I am really TRYING to remember to always keep the end in mind (read this post if you don't know what in the world I mean by that).  It's the week of my brother's birthday.  Over the last year, Mike and I went over our gift budget quite a bit.  I'm definitely NOT saying, gifting is bad.  I love giving gifts!!  I just tend to spend too much on them : )  With a baby coming, we really need to tighten our budget so, in an effort to "not get caught up in the commercial "isms,"  I have decided gifts will be more THOUGHTFUL and less expensive. 

My brother...well my whole family loves these...  and I like to make 'em BIG!  Here's a really great and easy recipe:  WHOOPIE PIES

i've had to resort to more thoughtful gifts this past Christmas, and will continue to give more thoughtful gifts in the future. i think they're actually more fun/fulfilling to give and make and wrap.......
