Advent {Day 13}: A Rock’n Angel Tree Gift


Yep, Pinterest Inspiration once again!

This year one of our Angel Tree children wanted a rocking horse! Not to hard to find, right? We shopped all day, all the while looking at every store for a rocking horse. Did I mention it also needed to be big enough for a 4-year-old who wears size 5T? Yeah…

After shopping, we went to pick up our kids from their Nanna’s house and I was explaining to my daughter that the only thing we didn’t find was a rocking horse for one of our friends. Nanna just said, “That’s okay. We can just ask Jesus to help us find one.” That night we prayed for Jesus to simply help us find one so we could bless our friend on Christmas day. We tucked in our babes and decided to search Craig’s List! SCORE!!! We found several. So the next day we started with the cheapest priced big wooden horse listed. Yep, SCORE! This is the listing picture:

Solid Wood! Still Available! $15.00!!!

I was so excited my husband was willing to drive ~2 hour round trip to pick up. When he got it home, he painted with some white house paint we had left over. After a second coat the next day we tightened up the screws and I hot glued on a feather bowa I had from a formal in college and Matt painted on her eyes! Walla!!!

Woop Woop! Awesome Christmas gift for $15.00!!!

Have you found any awesome deals this Christmas? Do share!
