when the GDs arrived at our house,
the oldest noticed a shopping bag
on the kitchen countertop and asked,
"Oma, what's in der?"
I told her that there were Christmas presents in there
for a little 2 year old boy
from our "Angel Tree" at church...
she volunteered to help me wrap them
because "I make the most beautiful wrapping paper
in the whole world! It will make him happy too."
She spent the next hour decorating 8.5X11" papers
with crayons, stamps and stickers,
then we taped them all together to make wrapping paper
and she helped me wrap and tape the packages.
As we wrapped them, we talked about sharing
with others less fortunate.
