Little sister gift.

I have a 6 year old little sister. Long story. We are 25 years and 10 days apart. Its freakishly weird to have a sister that young, and who looks so much like me. Just weird.

I did not meet her until this summer, as I have lived overseas for so long, and was a little out of touch with my dad for a few years. I could not be happier to have them in my life now.

Anywho, I know I will be her only sibling, so I make sure to over due it a little. Since I dont really know her as good I as would like to, I just asked her mom (who is really cool) what she is into. She loves Tinkerbell. So I ran with that. Only when I went to look at Tinkerbell stuff, I did not know what she already had. Hmmm.

I always try to buy kids cool presents that will not end up in the trash. My number one gift usually is a flashlight. What kid does not love a flashlight eh? This time around I wanted something that was memorable.

So I lost the before pic, but here is the finished product.


and another pic


and one more....

We have matching big and little sister necklaces. I took a picture of me and placed it in the box, and the frame. The frame in the picture is actually pretty cool, its like a tablet of paper that you can color. You rip off the paper frame, and its blank again. I thought it was pretty cool. :)

I called her after her birthday, and she loved it. She also got a kitten, so I cant top that...lol but I am glad she loved it ;)

Wow, that's a huge age gap!

Sweet and memorable gifts Sarah. You know that I like those more than anything that can be bought. True, you can't beat a kitten though.

So nice to see your post, finally and I L.O.V.E. love the new layout!
