One of my favorite Christmas traditions we started when Ben was a baby was a book exchange between Will and Ben. We've always selected the books for the boys to give each other in the past because they were too young to choose, but for the first time this year Will picked out the book he wanted to give Ben. He saw it at school on an A. R. reading list. It's a neat book called Ben's Dream. I don't know how long this tradition will last, but I hope they will continue exchanging books even when they are all grow up. Mark gave me a reality check and said that probably won't happen, which is okay. At least it's a really sweet tradition for now.
