A great sadness

My little bunny heart broke a bit yesterday when I heard of the attacks on children both in Connecticut and China.  I understand killing to eat, or even in war, but the level of anger needed to attack so many innocent people is well beyond my comprehension, and I suspect beyond the understanding of most of the victims.

Hug your loved ones tightly every day, especially in hard times.

Sissy's Christmas list

I have a confession... Sissy started on her Christmas list more than a month ago.  I know that seems early, but crafts can take a while to make, especially when you have a long list of people you want to give gifts to.

I realize that some people make Christmas lists of what they want, but Mommy may have forgotten to tell Sissy that.  Starting a couple years ago, Sissy has made a list of what she wants to give people.  The first year was really cute... she was giving out lots of hugs and kisses to everybody involved, and some homemade (by Mommy) crafts to her classmates and teachers. 

Well, the list has gotten bigger... she goes to a larger school now, so she has more classmates (who are getting bookmarks) and more teachers (art, music, both P.E. teachers, her primary teacher AND teacher's assistant are all on the list), along with the principal and one of the lunch ladies.  And some friends from outside of school too.

So yeah, she started on the list a while back, and the crafting started in November.  If all goes well, she'll finish the rest of it this weekend.  Mommy's looking forward to that.
