I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. My french rolling pins were well appreciated, and the little mini-spin tops were marveled over, and the turned bird house drew raves and ooooohs and ahhhhs, but the big hit of the season was pine scraps made into Klopper Stompers for the four bigger kids. The one-yr. old didn’t quite know what to do with them except clap them together. They were a big hit, and the kids wanted to take them to the hotel at night to use up and down the long halls. Grandma voted for that, but the parents nixed it. My little house was pandemonium with Klopper Stomper races going on amid the tossed packaging. It warms my heart, that with children, it’s always the simple things that get to them the most. We had a Great Christmas, and it’s going to be too quiet around here when they all go home!
