When Allie brought home her first homemade Christmas gift from kindergarten today and insisted I open it, I caved.
She told me that she just couldn't wait for Christmas for me to see what she had made...that it would be much too difficult for her to keep it a secret that long. She tried bargaining with me (I could open her gift if she could open one of hers--ha!), but when she realized I couldn't be talked into negotiating a deal, she told me that I just had to open her present early because it absolutely needed to be a part of the rest of our Christmas decorations. Seriously, how could I say no?! (Also, if you know me, it doesn't take much to convince me to open a gift...just sayin')
Lo and behold....the thumb print snow man candle holder that has now joined my arsenal of Christmas decor:
I'm anticipating the arrival of Zach's homemade gift from preschool later this week. When I asked what it was he made, Zach told me it was a surprise. However, he let the secret slip when not even two seconds later Allie asked him the same question. So, here's hopin' for a super cute Christmas ornament to add to our tree!
