Red and Green

I cant' believe how much I am in love with Red and Green this year. My Christmas cards are red and green (they have never been red and green and are usually pink) and all my gift wrap is in red and green. I have been wrapping gifts all morning and getting boxes ready to send. Woo hoo for me!

So in honor of my new love for Red and Green for the holidays and I am selling over 20 yards of my best Red and Green ribbon for $.25 cents. Yes you read right only a quarter! But not just any quarterThe Mississippi quarter. And not just any Mississippi quarter the one that has a small P on the the front right corner. Meaning it is from the Philadelphia mint not Denver mint. Each quarter will have a P or D on the front.

Annie Kate collects each quarter from each mint and has them up to date (thanks to my brother Ryan) but we can not find a Mississippi P. Because it is one of the older ones it is tricky to find.
Annie Kate is getting a little iffy on the whole Santa thing and seems to be asking new kind of questions (more to come on that for sure) So she said, "This year I am going to ask for a Mississippi P quarter from Santa, because that would be a miracle if I got that" I am glad she wants just one, remember the Christmas Miracle Rebecca did last year with the 1000 bunnies!

So, look through your change and if you find a Mississippi P and want to trade it in for a luscious pile of red and green ribbon, email me at pinkeverythingpink@yahoo.com and I will make that trade.

Hurray! Santa rides again... one more year, at least. I loved catching up on you today - what a great Thanksgiving holiday! I can't wait to see how you package the quarter - I love that she thinks it would be a miracle!

Erin said...

Hey Kristi...I have yet to tell you about my thanksgiving run...but I will. Also, just thought I would post on your blog because so many people read it.

For those with little girls that like Polly Pocket, Mattel has coupons that you can print of their website for $5.00 off any Polly Pocket purchase. I just happened to use them last night and I had 6 Polly's that I was purchasing all at wal-mart for $4.98. The cashier let me use 6 coupons at the same time and I ended up getting all the Polly's for free...I only had to pay taxes. What a Deal!!!

Mindy said...

I'm so glad Lelly found one. I had a Mississippi D, but no P. Fun to dig for it though--my heart was racing. The quest is accomplished!

Anonymous said...

I have a Mississippi P too. Maybe next time. too slow.

Elizabeth said...

Your red and green packages make me love it even more. Yah for Lelly!

Amanda :-) said...

It's funny how things that seem rare and almost impossible are rapidly 'sorted' within a blogging circle. How encouraging is that?

I was immediately out of the running with this, being in the UK. Pah!

Does AK want a 50p piece??

Jill said...

I can't believe you found one by the 3rd commenter!! How cool to have your Christmas miracle guaranteed and it's not even December yet!!

Rachel said...

I loved all of your pictures from Thanksgiving! And the bundles of gratitude you shared!

Love the ribbon, and Lelly, of all people, deserves it for sure!

Shawna B. said...

Oh man! Too late! Hooray for Lelly! I was certain I was going to be able to track one down for you! My boys have a collection, too. Speaking of my boys, I am pretty sure my Hayden would think Annie Kate is the coolest girl EVER in that jersey! And memorizing the team roster, too? He does the SAME THING!

Traci said...

Ask and you shall receive! Glad you got your quarter!!!

Claudissima said...

what a fantastic thing to do...the only thing is that I just took a ferry and I had to pay 3.50 with all my quarters...so I will have to go and dig again...nevertheless it will be a fun thing to look out for.
Interesting fact.

Lauralee said...

lucky you.. glad you found it!

Laurie said...

Hooray for blogging and the Mississippi P!

I love red and green packaging too. I bought blue wrap one year, and I just couldn't stand it. I love finding especially cute paper for Christmas. Has to be just right. I have the cutest tree skirt with different shades of green and red buttons and then colorful buttons. I just love it.

LJ said...

Maybe you should come visit me and wrap our presents too? Pretty please?

Melinda said...

HOw fun to be able to find one for her!
