When my sons were younger, they'd always want to be outside with me working in the yard. They were my little gardening helpers -- raking leaves, collecting pine-cones, growing vegetables, and turning over the compost pile. We felt sad in the winter when the snow covered our yard, and all gardening duties had to get put on hold until spring.
Fortunately, we found a way to use our green thumbs in the winter by starting the tradition of planting paperwhite bulbs. It's so quick and easy. Best of all, there's no mess because we use rocks, no soil! Paperwhites make a lovely centerpiece for your holiday dinner table or an attractive display on the windowsills throughout your house.
When my boys were little, they loved trains so it's no surprise this magical book was a favorite around our home. It celebrates the magic of Christmas and the joy of a little boy. It's a must-have for your home holiday library. Make some cocoa. Get in your pajamas and get cozy for a good read!
