The Doodles on 2011’s Gifts

“Dad?” Chloe began. “Don’t get me wrong -it’s cool that you draw on all the gifts. But then people don’t want to rip the paper off…and then it takes forever to get the paper off.” This, of course, was news to me. “Just rip it off,” I replied. “Trust me.” So with that, this may be the last year I draw on the boxes. Because despite being indifferent as to whether the art is preserved or destroyed I can kinda see her point. So…


My nephew’s box with Chloe’s (quick!) drawing of herself.


A holiday/”thank you” card for my mom (front)…


…and the inside of that card.


The top of Chloe’s gift…


…and bottom. Which you should ignore.
