{Gifts from the girls}

I love homemade gifts. I especially love everything my girls make at school. Two weeks ago both girls were SO excited about their gifts for me (and daddy). As soon as they came home that last Friday from school, both girls ran to their room and wrapped their presents. Madison told me that "MY gift has to be the first thing you open!!", and it was.

I received from Madison a beautiful calendar, each month has artwork that she has done. I took a few pictures of my favorites. I don't want to use her calendar and write on it... I would love to save it. I asked her if it was OK if I didn't use it, and could save it, and she said "yah, that's OK".

Katie wrote a "I am From...." poem. I accidentally read it while cleaning out her school folder last week (she had two copies! and how was I supposed to know?!). I told her a few days after I read it that I loved what she wrote, and it brought tears to my eyes. She went "HUH? MOOMMM!! You read my Christmas present?!!" Oh, I felt so awful! But, it was such a sweet gift, and who knew that my daughter was so AWARE of everything that I do! Really brings to perspective that "someone is always watching you!". Hope you can see what she wrote, if not, let me know and I'll type it up.


  1. That is so sweet!! I love homemade gifts from my kids too, there is nothing I'd rather get...

  2. That is wonderful! Homemade gifts are not great for those who get them but the givers feel special too. I loved this post.

  3. Oh my gosh those are such cute gifts! I love homemade presents too!

  4. Bryn made me a calendar for Christmas too.
