This year, Tera and Daniel made or bought presents for all of us. They were very thoughtful in their gifts. Really picking out things that they felt the other person would like. I love their faces in the pictures. The expectant joy of giving someone a gift from the heart.
Our kids are allowed to ask for one present from Santa and they know they'll most likely get what they ask for. I'm always surprised the Santa request is always a very reasonably small gift. Tera asked for an artist pallette and watercolor tubes. Daniel wanted a Irish penny whistle set and Michael of course a puppy. Santa was more than happy to comply with those requests.
After all presents are opened and we take a little break to eat or whatever, we always open stockings last. Daniel even made Pepper a stocking stuffer this year. I got a mini megaphone for calling the kids. My favorite gift, I may add.
