I bought a 10-pack of cotton kitchen towels and a set of fabric markers. My three kids colored what they wanted on some of the towels, and I wrote “Merry Christmas” and the year. On the other towels, I traced the outline of the kids’ hands and/or feet and wrote their names and ages. I kept one set of two towels for myself; then I gave my mother, my grandmother, my husband’s mother, and my husband’s grandmother each a set. There were tears!
