Brothers

Sometimes my kids surprise me and do things for each other that I would never have thought they would do.
In the bottom of my Christmas box was this:

It's a countdown to Christmas calendar. We have never used it. I don't even remember where I got it. Tween dug it out this year and hung it on the door jamb. No idea why he chose that spot. Little S was so excited about it. It was hung up a few days after Thanksgiving when we were decorating and I didn't give it another thought.

Tween has been filling the little bags every day and giving the "present" to Little S. Little S thinks that the elves fill it each night. Tween took this all on himself and has been having a blast with it. He sometimes sticks a piece of candy in it, a coin or even a little trinket.

I am so proud of him for sticking to it and for making Christmas come a little more alive for Little S.

Have your kids done something for one another recently that surprised you?

That is sooo cool!!! It's the little surprises at Christmas that mean so much. Your boys are GREAT!! I spent one Christmas in the hospital and my young nephew stuffed a stocking with goodies and had a nurse hang it on my bed during the night. He's grown, married and just had a new son now, but I'll never forget that Christmas.
I hope yours is wonderful!!
