Now that my kids are going to be Sophmores in college, I think about when they were little. And now that it is getting close to my birthday, I think about the homemade presents. I thought I would blog about some of the truly great ones, the ones you hold dear and keep in special places to look at.
I'm not sure what grade Ed was in when he made this book mark. I think it may have been his alter-ego Ted. It is laminated. He was really proud that it was laminated. I'm not sure he really wanted to give it to me but, he did. It marks the popover recipe in my Fannie Farmer cookbook. My favorite cookbook and a recipe that is a family favorite.
He made the bean wreath in first grade. I got it as a Christmas present and it hangs in the kitchen under the cabinet, near the coffee maker. I can imagine his little hands making it. It looks really good yet. It has to be thirteen years old. I hope it lasts a lot longer.
