My nieces birthdays are next month. I'm working on getting their presents together. So far I have two tote bags with black cats on them. They lost their black cat Oscar a few years ago and they still speak of him. They miss him a lot. I also lost a black cat named Spooky and they speak of him as well. I'm going to get fabric markers so that they can decorate their bags the way they want to. The bags are two different colours so they won't get mixed up. Morgan's {27th will be 14 } is green and Maddie's { 16th will be 11} is red. The stuff I'm buying them is pretty much stuff that they can use during the school year as well. Both girl like to write and listen to music so I'm working off of those two hobbies of theirs. Morgan wants a curling iron or hair straightener so I'm looking for a mini one for her. There is no air conditioning in the schools so I'm going to buy them large tumblers with straws that they can take and keep at school. The kids are allowed to bring water bottles or tumblers to sit on their desk during the spring and up until the last day of school when it's really hot outside. There are a few things I need. I always give them hand sanitizer every school year. Considering last year when they both got sick so much, they're getting larger bottles! I still have to get their journals as well.
