      Wonderful ways indeed!

      I remember the time my Mom was all in for even making handmade invitation cards, besides the gifts, and they were fun making. I guess anything that you do together as a family adds to the enjoyment - isn't it?

      Oh yes...baby food is best prepared at home, as it also takes care of the health and nutrition points as compared to the packaged options you find in the market.

      Thanks for sharing these ways with us. :)

      These tips are fantastic (especially fond of the plastic freezer bottles, using t.p. as Kleenex and yes – I have re-used Ziploc bags!) and your message that we can still thrive and find joy in life even in tough times really speaks to my heart. Such a great reminder! Thank you.
