I woke up at four this morning, which certainly wasn't my plan.
But I'm grateful for the quiet after a week (enjoyably) full of people.
I've been sensing my kidometer running low. Maybe this will perk it up.
So here's my Christmas gift for Keith. Scroll down to see the other similar posts..
As for the other delightful gifts exchanged, here's the lowdown:
Keith wrote wonderful poems for each of us.
Julie worked with Anna (age 10) to create haikus with watercolor backgrounds.
Cheryl painted a card for each person with a letter inside about what she likes about them.
Eric created and hand-illustrated a card game that includes each person in the house
and their unique characteristics, which we played together at the end of our
house Christmas celebration. Oh - and Jesse (age 14) jumped in with a rap that he had
recorded and written out for each of the (non-parental) adults in the house.
All in all, it was a very festive and laughter-filled time. The only person who didn't
think so was 4-year-old Elliott, who was done exploring his stocking and
ready to move on to opening his own presents.
The last of these is coming tomorrow, so stay tuned!
