That Much

Image

Each house has rooms. Down the hall in your house are your walls. The place where you sleep. Your room!

Image 

We do these things at night when you go to bed and these words are said.

 

First we ask, “How much do we love you?” Then we touch a wall and then another. “That much!” From here to there. Wall to wall love. “How much do we love you?” Jumping to touch the roof up there and reaching to touch the rug down there. “That much!” Roof to rug love. “How much do we love you?” Knocking on the door and walking over and to tap the window. “That much!” Door to widow love.

Image 

“How much do we love you?” Putting pillows under your head, pulling covers close to you, placing stuffed animals by your side, and a prayer whispered in your ear. “That much!” Putting, pulling, placing and praying love.

With a smile we switch off the goodnight light!

My hobby for 2014 is board/block books for kids ages 0-3. These first books are often 6-12 pages in length and have a few words, pictures or illustrations on each page. These books are helps to teach our kids or grandkids. They help them learn and move to the front of the line in their “before school years.” Pictures for the book are attached.

Sir Flash Went Out One Night

Image

Sir Flash went out one night. The door to where the car is parked was left open. Oops.

His head looked back and forth for a while.

He saw the moon and stars.

Image

He saw a frog.

Image

He saw an owl.

Image

When he saw the owl he started to howl.

Then he started to run with his short legs.

When he stopped his big eyes got wide and he looked side to side.  

Image

Where was his house?

He saw the cat from his home, which was good, he was lost.

 Image

She seemed to know her way back to the house.

Sir Flash went home with her.

He followed her home with a wag of his long tail and a smile on his long face. 

He went in through the open door and found his bed.

He was safe.

He curled up and without a sound went to sleep.

With a smile he dreamed about his new friends, his home and warm bed!

God Made

One day God made light time and night time. He made what is above and what is below. Above, below, light, night, what a great sight!

On day three God made the what is dry and what is wet, the land where we live and seas that we see, then He also made flowers, plants and trees.

Image

Image

The fourth day He made the sun that’s bright and moon at night.

Image

Image

On day five God made the birds with wings and fish with fin things.

Image

Image

On day six God made the animals on land we see. God made you and me.

Image

Image

On the seventh day seeing His best, He decided it was time to rest!

Hi M,

One great thing about your birthday coming tomorrow is the date will always be linked with two dates. Christmas and New Years. Right in the midst will be your day. Stories about your arrival will be told. Smiling faces will tell the stories. Pictures will come out of albums and be displayed on cameras. And then … more stories will be told. Little one, forever and ever the time of your birth will be told. It has been many, many years and we still tell the Christmas story, the details of His birth. Teasured stories. Parents, grandparents, great grandparents will tell of the day you joined the family. Today a picture of my great, great grandpa was posted for many close to us to see. That was a long time ago. We still remember his days. It will not be long before we are celebrating your first year with us. When you wake up (a dark time, then when it is light time) … it will be your birthday! Trust me … we remember.

Birthday stuff is quite fun. Cake. This cake will have a light stick. (Just one this year.) Their will be a gift or two. (Yep … like Christmas.) And there will be lots of laughs and great big grins. (One of those grins will be mine!)

Day #27. A looking forward to day #28 day!

Love you little one,

Hi M,

wrapping paper

After! Day #26. The day after Christmas. (Was that fun or what?) Some stuff is given away. Some stuff is shared with others. Some stuff gets tossed. Stuff that was used as paper for wrapping gifts. (Some the cat played with!) Or used boxes wind up in trash bags. “Days after” are good. Stuff is put where they belong soon. Toys in the toybox. Clothes in the closet or a drawer. Stuffed animals on the bed or on your shelf. Books stacked. Pictures displayed.

“Days after” … days after the day … after Christmas also has another story.  After Christmas a long time ago, the angels went home. The shepherds who had come to the “little” One’s birthday had to go back to their work. The music and the loud noise (shouting) was remembered, but now gone. (M, you may notice the relatives may leave, smiling faces are little more familar.) The lights (the star) moves. The Christmas tree will come down soon. The presents go from “under the tree” to “in your room.” The “day after” is good because Christmas and birthdays come each year! You know what? These “festive” days (smiling days) will come again. May you be blessed with many more little one, many more.

M, speaking of birthdays. Two days till your first birthday! As your birthday approaches and the new year (more on that later) comes closer you will get to do the things you are used to doing. We call those things a “routine.” Getting up, getting ready for the day, getting dressed, eating, going places. Christmas and birthdays are special, fun days! And one more is coming soon.

Lots of love,

Hi M,

my-first-christmas

The day! What do you think about Christmas? Fun day? Did you get great gifts? Food? Festivities?

Went over to my daughter’s (yep … talk about another fun day coming … the little guy is due in March) house. Pleasant time. Blessed time.

M, just a few Christmas thoughts as the day winds down.

The first Christmas music was angels singing/shouting.

The first gifts were from a few admirers.

The first Christmas light was a “star.”

And joining Mary and Joseph and the “Little One” on that first Christas, a mule, maybe camels and sheep … a few shepherds. Know what they heard? Some pretty good news from the barnyard.

Your first Christmas, many more little one, love,
