Choose from glitter lip gloss, perfume, and more.*A note from your Harrisburg Frugal Family Examiner – my daughter made the lip gloss and not only did she enjoy doing it, it’s lasted quite a long time!
- Sunday, December 9: Story Time with Mrs. Claus at 2 p.m. and again at 4 p.m. Mrs. Claus will read a story, lead the kids in singing Christmas carols, and pose for pictures throughout the day. Plus the children will have the opportunity to write a letter to Santa.
