The Gallery - Children

This week's Gallery subject is Children.  This is quite a tricky one for me because as a general rule I don't put pictures of my kid's faces on my blog but I think I can just about get away with this one.
It's a picture taken during a momentary lull in the frenzied unwrapping chaos of this past Christmas morning and is of Buster giving Missy a surprise gift that he had secretly wrapped for her, brotherly love in full effect.  

It warms the cockles of my heart as it proves that deep down Buster hasn't totally been sucked into the commercial vortex of receiving, that he took time out of his list-making to think of something his little sister might like and the fact that it was something of his that he had enjoyed, outgrown and wanted to pass on (it was a little rabbit stencil).  The true meaning of Christmas captured in one hastily taken snap.

Take a look at the other wonderful Gallery entries here
