  1. Since haikus are really short, I'm going to post two:

    1. Shepherds and kings see,
    All wrapped in swaddling clothes,
    Our baby Savior.

    2. The snow falls softly
    From the heavens to the earth,
    On this Christmas Eve


  2. My favorite gift I'm giving this Christmas is a friendship bracelet to my best friend. I have a matching one, so we'll be bracelet-buddies. ;)
