Everyone got socks and unmentionables for Christmas. They each got a book or a book on tape also. They were very grateful.
Some were a little embarrassed and didn't take them out to show.
Thomas has multiple subscriptions to Lego magazine, so the December issue was what he gave his younger siblings. It included 3-D glasses. Quite the fashion statement. All the children had to try them on and see how they worked.
My friend Chrissi S. made the aprons. She does beautiful work. They have been very popular around here. (If you are interested in getting your own apron or another item - she makes beautiful dresses for girls, see her things in her e-bay store or on Etsy under Bezaleelartisans13. It would be a big help to a homeschooling family)
