Charlotte of Waltzing Matilda gave me a great idea for a new tradition: the gift of books. She gives each of her children a pile of new books for Christmas; which I thought was a wonderful idea, but I decided it would work better for our family if one of their birthday gifts were books. We have a fairly good library, but I've been wanting to kick start the future libraries of our children. I've already purchased books for every birthday through March.
Lil' Lamb was absolutely thrilled with his selections.
