I started a tradition last year of giving my kids something homemade for Christmas. Last year I sewed them aprons. This year I made them puzzles of themselves. Each puzzle has 6 different pictures of them. They got to open these Christmas Eve.
I think this may have been one of my favorite Christmas'. The kids were so good, and so grateful, they literally thanked us all day long. I think it was the last thing Paige said to me before she went to sleep on Christmas night too! It was full of surprises and things they didn't expect. I even got surprised too! Mr. Wonderful as I like to refer to him, had a kitchen table and chairs made for me!! I had no idea, and I am the accountant around here, and he did it without me knowing! (good thing too, because if I would have know I would have said no way!) Pretty sneekie, I love it. I told him it was pretty risky to pick something like that out for me, I am real particular when it comes to buying furniture. I really think things out, but he had heard me talk about it so much, he really knew exactly what I wanted. Oh, what did Buck get? HMMM, lots of hunting!!! He actually left Christmas night to go back out on his hunt. I did not want him to leave, but since it was his only Christmas present, I let him leave. I mean who am I to ruin Christmas for Mr. Wonderful? He is still out hunting.
