Mmmmm Christmas cookies!
The first present was opened. It was not supposed to be. I planned to show you some of the handmade gifts I made this Christmas season I can't really do this until the recipients get them of course. Anyway, I made this headband for Avia and wrapped it yesterday. Later, she comes walking into the kitchen with it in hand saying, "Whose is this? Where did it come from?"
"Where did you get it?" I respond.
After very little investigation we discover Calvin with some wrapping paper and a blank expression on his face. In his defense, he chose the perfect present to open early. Avia will get lots of use out of it before Christmas.
Meet the newest member of our family. Her name is Snowflake. I voted for Whydidiagreetothis but somehow Snowflake won out. Calvin calls her Moe (mouse) even though it is definitely not a mouse but in fact a hamster.
A very happy Avia.
Note, Snowflake was not a Christmas present. She was a promised reward for good behavior, showing responsibility, and good grades last year. Avia saved up to help with the cage and supplies. She has been patiently awaiting this day for a long time. Welcome home Snowflake.
