I recently found this box while I was cleaning out the back garage.
Here's what I found inside:
A sleigh my grandpa made. I love the little metal handle and foot step thing on the side.
Here's Grandpa's sleigh in action.
Cate came over and wanted to play with it when she saw that I had made it fun. I wouldn't let her. Should I? I don't know. I don't want it to get broken but I also don't think it needs to spend eternity in that box.
I wish I had a mantle so it could be on display out of reach of grabby little fingers.
Look what I found taped to the bottom of the sleigh:
Excuse me for a moment while I daintily dab away my tears with Grandma's embroidered hanky.
Do you think these two would hold still long enough for me to tape a note like that to their bottoms? Or maybe a tattoo because that would last forever and a note would just come off in the bath tub.
They are my prized possessions.
Just thought you should know in case you find them in a cardboard box in my garage some day.
That sounds morbid doesn't it?
Maybe I'll just make them sit on the mantle instead.
