One thing I really want the Happy Buddy to learn is to be grateful!
Whenever he receives a ‘happy’, or present, from someone, I want to always do my best to have him follow up with a note of thanks.
A great way (and easy way) to do that is to take a picture!
Givers LOVE to know that their gifts were enjoyed or put to good use, so why not snap a picture of your Happy Buddy playing with his/her new Christmas treat and show the gratitude instead of just tell about it? This is especially helpful if your Happy Buddy can’t write yet!
Here are a few Thank You Pictures I did for the Happy Buddy’s magical Aunt Tina and Aunt Greta last year when they sent him his Christmas presents.
I am not even kidding when I tell you that my Aunt Tina totally MADE that stocking! She is a crafting GENIUS!
He’s thinking, “In just a minute I am going to swallow that entire Thank You note.”
Happy Christmas Thank You Picture-ing! 🙂
