Hand made gifts can sure make kids just as happy as store boughten, When they are this age.
And they couldn’t wait til Christmas day. Mom got one together and then they fought about who
was going to sit in the chair, Little girls fighting ? I thought only little boys did that !
Had them done and shipped out last week Wensday, had to go all the way to Houston TX.
Hope all your familys have a Merry Christmas.

Those are the kind of gifts that will be cherished for their entire life. My daughter has a upholstered hand crafted and carved rocking chair that my brother in laws Dad made her over 35 years ago, and she still has it and display’s it proudly.

I am sure that the same will happen with these…. Great Christmas gifts and just look at the joy that is in those little girls eye’s….

Wonderful set of rocking chairs, and those occupants are really cute also, bet you can hardly wait to get the
hugs next time you see them. Thank you for sharing the happiness. May the joy of Christs birthday be will
all of you.

Those chairs have the chance to become presents for many generations. Be sure to have some small squares of brass engraved with your name, the childs name and relationship to you and the date they were given. You can get one and have it engraved at any trophy shop.
