I have made a few gaffs with the Christmas ornaments
that I give the kids each year.
As in, I have given the same one to a child 2 years in a row.
Shocking, I know, given my intense attention to detail (that was a joke for my husband to chuckle at).
This time I did it with Hannah's gift from Santa--
but luckily not the ornaments ha ha!
(Because who doesn't want two Gregor the Overlander
complete book sets, am I right?)
Have I mentioned how awesome being 51 is?
Anywho, for this year's ornament,
I decided to commemorate each child's namesake.
Michaela Lauren, named after her father, Michael Lawrence, received this one:
Bethany Emma, named after her great grandma Emma Lavon, received this one:
Elijah King, named after my dad, Larry King:
Hannah Nicolena, named after her great, great,
Grandma, Nicolena Hansen:
And William Michael, named after his great Grandpa,
He was obviously named after his dad too, but Michael already has a namesake and so....
Yep, they have a great legacy of awesomeness to be inspired by.
I feel the presence of these wonderful ancestors of mine often.
They love these kids like I do.
And I'm grateful for all the help I can get.
Happy New Year.
