12 Days of Christmas

My daughter E and her family are doing the 12 Days of Christmas for Hubby and I for our Christmas. Starting yesterday, we get to open one gift each day. She has been super creative in the notes that are with each gift, though the cards are from our grandson, T.

The introductory card yesterday said:

"The 12 Days of Christmas"
The 12 days of Christmas is the song that we sing and in this sack 12 presents we bring.
December the 14th is when you may start.
Unwrap one present a day with love from our heart!
Having you as grandparents is a dream come true.
This is our way of wishing Merry Christmas to you
Love B, E & T

The note on the first card:

On the first day of Christmas my cute grandson brought to me...
A partridge in a pear tree-how boring!
Kind of reminds me of grandpa snoring.
An ornament instead will add beauty to your tree,
and commemorate the past year(well, since March) with thee.
Love T

The ornament is of Joseph and Mary gazing down at baby Jesus, with the words "Love was born" written on Jesus quilt. I decorate our tree with manger type ornaments each year, so I will be able to look at it each year and remember when we added T to our family

Tonight's card:

On the second day of Christmas my cute grandson brought to me....
Two turtle doves are very rare
and nowhere could I find a pair.
But Costco had a gift membership for two,
and I thought you could start January grocery shopping anew!
Love TIsn't she creative!

Sounds great! You and your husband are so lucky! What a sweet daughter you have! We have been the recipients of several "knock and runs" or "ding dong dashes" this week. One of our daughters was musing how one or two are nice, but when you get four it makes you feel like a charity case!
