It's always interesting to see what reactions my children will have to the gifts at Christmas. This year MMan was all about opening presents. He ripped paper enthusiastically and showed varied interest in the contents. When there was nothing left to open, tears ensued. GGirl loved her gifts that were themed with the princesses of the day (Anna and Elsa). Less thrilled with clothes, but a gracious recipient, none the less.
This was the first year she was an independent giver. She bought gifts at Santa's Village at school and enjoyed giving gifts that she had chosen. She also added colored pictures and drawings to our stockings. It was a pleasure to see her find the joy in giving.
Two of my greatest gifts are wearing the bows below.
