My son received a really cool ant farm for Christmas this year – thanks Aunt M and Uncle D – and our entire family has been enjoying watching the progression that the ants have made through the gel over the past few weeks. When we first received this gift in the mail, I have to say that I was slightly terrified by the thought of 30 harvester ants somehow escaping and crawling all over my son’s room. Thankfully, I soon realized that there is no way for the ants to escape, and a gift that I would probably not have bought my son has quickly become a family favorite.
Other favorites included a children’s camera that connects via USB cable to the computer (beware the games, though!), the board game Parcheesi, a cash register, and of course, Legos.
Which gifts were your family’s winners this year? Any flops?
God bless you all this morning!
