Emperor penguins are amazing! At the beginning of the winter, the female penguin lays an egg and then goes off in search of food. The daddy penguin stays behind with a very important job. While he waits for the mother to return, the father has to keep the egg (and himself) warm during the long, frigid, Antarctic winter. For two whole months, the Emperor penguin balances the egg on his feet, warming it and waiting for it to hatch. That’s a great dad!
When my children lived at home, my favorite holiday activity was reading Christmas stories to my children. They loved being read to, and the holiday season was our favorite time to read together. We would make hot cocoa and cuddle up on the sofa with a blanket and a favorite book. I enjoyed it as much as my children did. I will always savor those wonderful memories!
