The Spirit of Christmas

The spirit of Christmas is strong with my child.  She was so concerned that there was no present for Grandma under the tree, that she set about to rectify the situation. It’s worth noting that Grandma lives in Alaska, and there were no plans for her to visit us for Christmas, my little girl just wanted to make sure Grandma was represented in our Christmas.

First she needed a present, so she got one of my shoes.

ONE shoe.

She spent a great deal of time wrapping that shoe. Maybe even half an hour.

Daddy had to intervene to keep her from using up an entire roll of tape. But she did get to use a few pieces.

Then she made a label, so everyone would know who the present was to, and who it was from.

She got some help with spelling, but wrote the entire label herself.

And then proudly placed the label on the package, and put the package under the tree.

Her approach to Christmas was not exclusively altruistic, she also wrote a letter to Santa with a list of items that she wanted.
