I must've been a VERY good girl this year, because I got almost everything I wanted and a couple of things I didn't know I wanted, but am tickled pink that I got!
From dh: an antique rocker that he completely restored and renovated so I can rock my grandson to sleep properly (BTW, Eli loves it---we've already fallen asleep together in it twice today
). Also, the newest Patricia Cornwell novel and a flip cell phone that I've wanted desperately for a couple of years.
From Micah and Amanda: a small refrigerator/freezer for our bedroom, which is PERFECT.......we like to 'stash' our snacks so the boys won't eat everything we buy before we get a chance to
Also, some fabulous shearling indoor/outdoor slippers, a DVD, and some soft cuddly socks.
From Melanie: another book, a DVD, and a $50 gift card
for Barnes & Noble (that kid always DID know what I love the most
). And of course, the best gift of all, her presence.........she goes back early Tuesday morning, but as much as I'll miss her, I'm grateful for the time she was able to spend with us. Oh, and she IS officially engaged---wedding date and details to follow at some point in the next 2 years
From my sons: A CD/radio for my bathroom (there's nothing like having your 'tunes' when you're relaxing in the tub), a DVD, and a minimum of smart-alecky remarks.
And from my grandson: His sweet little baby's body snuggled up next to mine, his affectionate smiles and laughter, and his chubby arms flung around my neck as if to say "I love you, Grandma!" :kiss
Merry Christmas to all, and to all, a good night..........I'm plumb tuckered out!
