You know how it seems that little kids receiving presents often seem more enthralled with the box and packaging than with the gift itself?
That thought came to mind today, when we celebrated granddaughter Lise's first birthday.
Madame X and I gave Lise a little plastic sandbox in the shape of a turtle. But, because today's weather was cool and rainy, we carried the sandbox inside. The bags of sand will be poured into the sandbox on a better day.
However, as this photo shows, the absence of sand didn't seem to bother Lise and her older sister Claire in the least.
Happy birthday, Lise!
