Box Top Winner!

I can remember even before our kids were school aged, cutting out those Box Tops For Education. I couldn't resist collecting them.  I have been cutting and saving and donating these bad boyz for forever. I knew one of my kids would have to win something in the schools box tops contests one of these days! During one of the breaks, Ella pulled a ton of them out of the drawer and spent over an hour trimming them all herself and put them in a baggie and labeled them(I usually just rip them off the box and they need to be trimmed). I think she did 100!  She was determined to win. All her work paid off and Ella was the box top winner for her grade last month! She was beyond thrilled. She came home with a hot cocoa/smores set, complete with mugs, cocoa, marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate. She used it as her FHE treat one Monday night and was so excited to share with us...
