"Some? Oh, no-if you are giving gifts, you will give to everyone. You are the Captain, you can't be selective."
"What can I get?" she looked puzzled.
As I walked around the store, it struck me like lightening. I know get the Rainbow Skittles in the Candy Canes. You all performed carrying the Rainbow Rose flag.
"Really? Oh, good idea." she laughed and ran around collecting the candy canes.
"I have another idea." I laughed.
"No, Mom that is enough."
"No, its not-I need black felt and some ribbon."
She followed me to the tiny craft area and I grabbed what I need. "What are you going to do?"
"You'll see." I laughed.
After getting groceries, putting them away, and getting dinner, I snuck up in the FROG, to begin. I ran downstairs with the first ornament. She looked stunned.
"Mom, you don't need to do this."
What she didn't realize was I did! I did need to make these girls, something special. They do not get a lot of recognition from the school. It is all about football, the band, the cheerleaders, and than the guard. They won more trophies than the band, yet...at the pep rallies the cheerleaders didn't include them in the fun. No, I need to make these. They have done an amazing job, this year! It won't take me long. I felt like an elf, as I worked on making this simple ornaments. I do hope these girls like them and remember the magic they created. Making these ornaments created magic in my heart!
