Son by Lois Lowry
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This was an amazing sequel to The Giver. I am so glad that Ms. Lowry decided to write the book to let us see the end of Jonas and Gabriel's story. I LOVED it.

|Caleb is the perfect size|
to crawl under the tree and
lay out the Christmas tree skirt.
|He's also old enough that he|
is fascinated with each new
ornament that comes out of the box.
|He loved this Fisher Price school ornament|
that his mom gave me last year.
I enjoyed hearing his ooh's and aah's.
|David mostly enjoyed playing with his toys while|
Caleb and I worked.
|My tree decor is very unique this year.|
Lots of ornaments clumped (or should
I say grouped) together
close to the bottom of the tree.
I am OK with that.
We're making memories
not an exquisitely decorated tree.
I pray for you to enjoy
this special time of the year
and that you will not get stressed
out by all that has to be done.
Stop and smell the roses,
or the poinsettias.
|Our little goblins this year|
were Batman, Monkey, and Super Grover.
|It was also great to have church friends and|
neighbors stop by.
|We gave them candy.|
|They gave us hugs.|
I'd say that's a pretty
JUST A LITTLE LATE.
|I listened to this book on CD while driving in my car.|
That's a great way to get extra books read.
It was hilarious! I found myself laughing
out loud at several places. I wonder
what the drivers around me were thinking.
