My Favorite Christmas Gifts
I received many wonderful gifts for Christmas however if I had to pick my favorites it would be these four.
The Cricut was something I had wanted for a very long time and from my daughter Megan and her father I got my long desired scrapbooking companion. The Kodak camera was actually a gift from multiple people: My parents, my niece Ashley and Megan's Grandfather Mike. My old Kodak camera broke in August of 2007 and I received several gift cards to Best Buy for Christmas. I used those gift cards to buy the Kodak Easy Share Z812 IS.
The other two gifts that I find near and dear to my heart are two handmade gifts I received from my friend Amanda. One a beautiful mini shadow box made in my favorite colors and a picture of my precious Megan in the center and the other a touching poem that puts into words my hobby scrapbooking. I especially find these special and will always cherish them.
Poem on plaque reads:
We gather up pictures
and bits of our past
and scrapbook them into
a gift that will last.
We write about milestones
and travels and such-
the times of our lives that we treasure so much.
A few special photos, a family tree,
a few thoughtful words,
and soon we will see -
This album I've made
is much more than a book,
it's worth even more
than the time it took.
It's a gift holding memories
and made with great care
with my heart and my hands
and with all my love to share.
