The Most Wonderful Time of the Year


I know - it's supposed to be Christmas. . . and it is. I guess I should have called this the Second Most Wonderful Time of the Year. It's the time of year when stores sell school supplies for a nickel. LOVE IT.

Joe Fox ("You've Got Mail"): "Don't you love New York in the fall? It makes me wanna buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address."

Well I don't know about New York in the fall, but I love school supplies and am starting to compile my list. You can order through the public school system but last year they wanted $34 for what I got paying $16.50! It's just too thrilling!

We are sending Bubba to two schools in the fall (I know, it seems a bit much, but we believe it is the best thing for everyone) and then Little has a list from her new first grade class. I want to make one list so I can carry it with me and gather up what we need as I go. So we all know that any list worth it's salt is going to be written on cute paper! So I made this:

(Feel free to use this for your own cute supply list. Just right click on the picture and save it to your desktop. Insert it into a blank document and print away! Hope you have fun!)
