since we got ourselves an english bulldog for christmas this year,
we decided to go easy on additional gifts and give each other just one gift each.
(in addition to stuffing stockings for one another, which just might be our favorite part of christmas morning)
despite the fact that i unfortunately did not inherit
my mothers phenomenal art skills,
i wrote and illustrated a children’s book for josh,
based on him and his life adventures.
i think he liked it.
(even though he asked why there was a little pig on the last page—
it was supposed to be a bulldog puppy.)
