You've got mail.

Yesterday, I was pretty excited to find 2 more Christmas cards and a post office letter saying I had a parcel waiting for me at the post office! It's been a really long, stressful and tiring week (lots going on but I won't go into it...let's keep this a positive post!), so it really made my day to get that stuff! Anyway, I picked up the parcel this morning and was more excited to find some Christmas presents from Kristi, Matt and Isaiah. Thanks so much guys! We're going to save them and open them on Christmas but unfortunately, Jesse doesn't have the same patience when it come to presents and I don't have the heart to say no! Jes was so, so excited as soon as he saw the box, he started biting at it and pawing at it! It was really cute! And since he'll be in a kennel on Christmas, I figured it would be okay if he opened his gift from Isaiah a little early...
So, I opened the box and Jesse instantly found the present that was for him (it's funny how they know!) and started opening it with great enthusiasm!

He loved his new toy. I think you made Jesse's day too guys! Thanks Isaiah!
And now we have Christmas presents under our tree! Kate also gave me a lovely set of 4 Christmas dishes, perfect for serving goodies on to friends. I opened those but it was with Kate's permission and encouragement! Thanks for thinking of me Kate and getting me such a lovely surprise!
Then, I felt so inspired by all this Christmas stuff, I spent most of today making Christmas cookies, even though it was hot! It wasn't actually that bad because I cranked the AC and closed all the doors to the room, except the living room and kitchen. It was fun and a great way to spend a quiet Saturday (Steve had to work).

Thanks again to Kristi, Matt, Isaiah and Kate! You're really helping it feel like the Christmas season! :)

Oh I'm so glad you got them!!! I can't believe you got those before my last package. The other one must be in customs! So you may get even more treasures...those aren't wrapped though so if it does come just wrap the postal box up! I'm glad Jesse liked his gift from Isaiah! Isaiah put a lot of thought into it! ;)
