Presents ...

This year I am super excited about some presents. Hyrum wrote a "book" this autumn that he loves. He read it to everyone every night for a few weeks. I typed it up and got all his illustrations and I am having it "published" for Christmas. Hyrum is the only one in the family who doesn't know about it. We have had lots of help including reviews from cousins and neighbors and edits from them also. John and the boys have also helped. This Sat. Josh finished his "cover art" for the book. He wanted to give it to Hyrum early. He didn't tell Hyrum it was for a book, he just told him he drew it for him as a surprise. You should have seen Hyrum's face. He had tears in his eyes and he just kept hugging Josh......so I am thinking that the book will be a big hit...

 I am also doing a book for Math. Matthew has been taking some really fun and good photos lately so I put them all together in a book that he will get for Christmas (also a surprise :) At the end of the book is a poem that Matthew wrote himself in French that we really loved. (His teacher Mme Budge was also really impressed :)

Green is the color of autumn when it is cold.
Green is the taste of corn in soup.Green is the sound of a crayon that is cracking.

And two pictures that are going to be in his book...
