Personal Notes:
At Christmas Erin would wrap up a very special gift, a deformed or broken bell she hadfound somewhere during the year. Sometimes she would hide the bell in a more admired gift, only to fool me when I found the bell tucked away at the bottom. Every time I found the bell I would exclaim, "It's a Bell!" and now that line is all we need to start laughing and remembering our silliness. Make the bell cookie ugly enough and maybe you will create some silliness and laughter inyour family at Christmas too!
