All month the kids have been doing good deeds and placing a piece of yarn in baby Jesus' crib to keep him warm. This morning they woke up to a surprise. A note was left in the crib thanking them for all their good deeds. Things like: making a siblings bed, washing the dishes, fetching a diaper, or mopping the floors, all constituted a good deed. Blaise even participated by learning how to collect trash cans, dustbustering the stairs, and playing with the baby so mommy could shower. Imagine their surprise receiving a package as a thank you. Isn't it more exciting when you don't expect anything in return for doing something nice? Their package contained journals, pencils, stickers, socks, and ring pops.
