Christmas gifts from a five-year-old

"Miss Maegan, I need you to make a project with me."

"What do you want to make?"

"Well, I mean I need YOU to make it."

"Okay. What do you want me to make?"

"I need some envelopes. I have presents to put inside them for you and Mr. Brian."

"How big do the envelopes need to be?"

"Well, the presents are just pictures that I drew of you and Mr. Brian. So just normal-sized envelopes that they will fit in."


So I cut and measured and glued and produced three picture-perfect homemade envelopes. They were, of course, destroyed when her little hands stuffed the pictures in.

No matter. The real prize was inside.

She really captured Mr. Brian, didn't she?
(Mr. Brian wasn't thrilled with the scrawny depictions of his arms and legs.)

I, on the other hand, think the massive eyebrows were RIGHT ON.

But then she realized that Mr. Brian wears glasses. And that he is tall.
So she drew another one.

And I think that all I can say for Miss Maegan here is that she must really like her earrings.

And I think she got my frazzled, baffled look DOWN.
