A Gift Under The Tree

Here is the tree. We decorated it over the weekend. There is already a present or two under the tree. Can you find it? You may need to click on the picture and enlarge it to find it.

The best gift
That I ever got
Didn't really weigh a lot
It didn't have a ribbon 'round
And it sometimes made the terrible sound
The best of all it seems to me
It wasn't neath the Christmas tree
And yet, I guess I'd have to say
That it made all the other presents twice as gay
The best gift that I've ever known
I'd always wanted most to own
Yet in my dreams of sugar and spice
I never thought it could be so nice
The best gift that I ever get
Was sometimes dry and sometimes wet
Was usually pink but oftentimes red
As it lay so innocently in its bed
The best gift of the year to me
The one I hold most dear to me
A gift that simply drove me wild
Was a tiny new born child...
by L. O'Kun

Yes, Sam was born in May, but still.
On Saturday night after we had finished all of our decorating and our dinner I was in the kitchen doing the dishes. From where I was standing at the sink I would see some branches on the tree moving. I said, "Sam, are you kicking the tree?" He said, "No." But his voice didn't come from where I was expecting it to come from. I walked into the living room and said, "Where are you?" He said, "There's a present under the tree for you."

He's such a darling boy. And - I did not see him in that big picture... I even zoomed. Amazing what we miss sometimes.

I clicked on the picture to enlarge and I did not see him there! FREAKY!!! He's so funny! I miss him.

That's a cute poem. I thought in the end it was going to be a kiss.

It snowed yesterday and it is so fooshnicken cold (we are going to get people to start using that word, so help me!) We went to the lib and got a bunch of books, so we could snuggle on the couch together. Wish we were nearer, so we could all snuggle on the same couch.

Sam is one of my favorites! He was the best kid in his primary class when I use to substitute for Sis. Rogers!

That's so cute. I'm excited to see you guys over New Years. I hope you'll be around. We're comin' down on the 30th and leaving the Sunday after that.

Even on the close up picture I didn't see him until Julie pointed him out.
