The day of the school party brought the biggest pile of the most fabulously wrapped presents I've ever received. My kiddos and families gifted me with a Keurig Mini beverage maker, in RED! Plus a ton of drink cups and a karryall tote with my monogram. You know, I don't know that I've ever had my monogram on anything. Then various other little sweet Christmasy sacks with a variety of gift cards. Just wow, that's all!
Then, for our Sunday before Christmas Family Party we started with a Skype visit with the Captain. He got up in the middle of the night to pay us a little visit- sweet.
Bees! It is a bee kit for beekeepers! So very exciting! I guess it was the actual box it all came in with a big gigantic bee on the side, that Drummer Boy thought was a dead giveaway. Ummm, I never saw it. I'm glad. I'm usually not a good person at all with surprises, but this was a delightful surprise.
Aunt Lois enjoyed watching the poo-pies with their bounty.
She didn't mind her stocking full of goodies either.
Today was Christmas at my Mom's. Handy Man left early and I came home to the gift he's been secretly working on for months.
My own Fairyland Woodland Home, made just for me. I am so impressed! All decked out for Christmas with lights and trees and a wee snowman, to join the chickens and a goat. Our little tree covered with elves is in the background. You can't believe the detail. A classroom with a board and art supplies. The kids bedroom has an even littler cradle for fairy dolls. Coat hangers he made from paper clips, and a highchair.
Tomorrow we'll spend the day with Aunt Lois and reflect on the hope tomorrow writes on our hearts and is the greatest gift of all-Jesus.
