You know those darling, handmade ornaments you look forward to getting at Christmas when your child enters preschool? Well, in 2005, Rilyn was 18 months old and in a Mother’s Day Out program. I couldn’t wait to open that white paper bag with Christmas stickers all over it when she brought it home. I just knew it was going to be the sweetest, cutest, Christmas ornament ever! (That is truly one of the things I looked forward to when I found out I was pregnant with my first child-homemade gifts from my children.) As I pulled out the ornament, though, I didn’t quite feel the “oooooh awwwww” that I thought I would. Here’s what I got.

Not exactly the best picture of my daughter who yes, had a hair growth issue. So, it’s not how I would picture angels looking in heaven, but it’s my girl, and as I pulled out the ornament this year to decorate our tree, I will forever cherish my “halo from the ‘hood.”
