A Handmade Christmas Story.


This week I wrapped the gifts Dear Husband and I got for the boys and tucked them under the tree. They started poking around them and I told them to be careful while I migrated to the kitchen to load the dishwasher. My seven-year old sidled around the corner and looked at me seriously.

“Mom, is your present…handmade?”

“No,” I said shamefully. In truth, this year I really struggled with a useful handmade item. When I finally got an idea, it started raining craziness around here and I just never got to follow-up on my intentions no matter how hard I tried.

He put his hand to his forehead, wiped away and let out a huge, “Phew.”

Enter my agape mouth! Well, my oh my!

“What about that double-sided knit light saber you want?” I chided.

He turned around and looked at me and said, “Well, That is something I really want.”

Ah ha! Gotcha. Double sided knit light saber delivered for Christmas baby! Handmade! I’m frantically working on double saber number two for my older boy. Must…get….it… done.

I hope you have the most wonderful Christmas with your family. I wish you peace and joy and smiles, handmade or not.
