I received so many thoughtful and fun gifts this year for Christmas that I hate to pick a favorite, but I can’t help myself.

This fall I was delighted to see photos posted by my sister and brother-in-law of artwork created by my 9-year-old nephew. He recreated pieces by Piet Mondrian on paper with markers and (even more exciting) with legos. So you can imagine my excited when I unwrapped the above. It is probably meant to be an ornament but I think it deserves to be displayed year round.

The following letter was enclosed, which made the gift even more amazing. Since we were opening gifts with my Mom and brother we also got to hear the letters he sent to them. It’s so great to hear his thoughts. He’s getting so grown up. Sadly, Christopher and his brother and sister live in San Diego so I am their long distance aunt which is not as much fun as being a nearby aunt, but I’m hoping with this great penmanship perhaps we can start sending each other mail more often.
