Of Animal Caps, An Umbrella, and a Nutcrakcer
I'm sure lots of grandparents follow the habit of bringing small gifts to their grandchildren when they visit them! I certainly dol This time I brought the two grandchildren Halloween shirts from Target, adorned with Jack o' Lanterns. I brought them two extra gifts, too: a nutcracker for Locke (to add to the collection I started him a few years ago--this one a Cowboy), and an umbrella for Lia. This latter gift is timely, since it has been misting rain for the last three days. When we were in Colorado together in August, I bought Michigan grandson Malcolm a knitted cap that was a frog's head;this was a birthday gift, for his 9th birthday, which we celebrated there. The other three loved his cap so much, that I subsequently bought all of them animal caps. So here are Lia and Locke in their moose and beaver caps. Also the umbrella and the nutcracker!
