To start, two very sweet Santas (who happen to bare a striking resemblance to Josiah & Lorinda!) lost their every loving minds and shocked (!!) us with this treat hidden way behind our Christmas tree. Still at a loss for a proper way to thank them.
The day continued (in a haze of giddiness over the new camera!) with lots and lots of family! And my only complaint is it was way too short of a day. We are so blessed to have friends for family, time spent with them is truly precious.
More than ever I was overwhelmed with the thought and love behind each gift received. Handmade ornaments of yours truly by our nieces (complete with a "Dude" hat and a feather headband), perfect shakers found by Susannah, a much wanted snow globe (magical!), my great-great grandmother's opal ring passed down to me, and a sweet little necklace with the word of the day, JOY!
We are too loved.
