Thank you Mom - the kids loved your gifts & I listened to Distant Serenade - all the way thru! - and it just made me feel sooo good. I sure did miss it. Ruth loved her little tin "purse". She is such a girly girl - don't know where she got that from.
Aaron & Sam loved their gifts too. Aaron whipped out the art stuff right away - well at least until he got our gift (a nintendo ds lite - black like he asked). Sam got one in blue but his is the regular ds & not the light. They stayed up late playing on em. Maybe I will get to sleep in tomorrow? lol
Again thank you for sending the package w/all the goodies. We all loved the gifts and William loved the coins - he was fascinated by the dates & countries they came from. Below are the images from the early unwrapping. Tomorrow we will do crafts & have ham - I will post pictures of our crafts, don't worry. Miss you all and wish you a very Merry Christmas - even though we can't spend it with you - know that you are in our thoughts and hearts!!
*P.S. we had a secret santa gift left on our porch w/gifts for the kids & William & I. It just made our night - A knock at the door and when I opened it no one was there but a large package w/goodies for the family and all I saw was the red glare from the break lights of the car as it sped away - what a sweet & thoughtful way to end the evening.*
Enjoy the images!
