smallish surprises.

they craft stuff for us, the youngest two. paper houses and purses and cards! reams of cards.

em rejoices at any opportunity to make a card for each member of our family. (zee is temporarily too cool to be moved by sibling affection, but bee keeps his. it's sweet.)

from em.


then there's elle, who leaves colorful notes on my pillow, or slips them under the bathroom door while i shower, then hangs about to hear me exclaim as i find them.

easter card.

from elle.

i suppose they shan't still be doing this at seventeen, but i can't help but hope they never outgrow the delight of making and giving (and that elle will keep forming those mcdonald's m's).

so very much to love.




more of tuesday unwrapped at chatting at the sky.

So beautifully captured. Our children so love to give us gifts -- just to see the happiness on our face. You're right -- probably won't be happening in a few years.

Love to see this and I know grandma and I cherish each and every expression of joy they share with us. Most go on the fridge for quite a while, some stand on the counters and some I sneak out to my office.
