Karla, nothing has made me laugh harder after opening an envelope. You guys rule! (Click the picture if you’re new to the story).
You are in the category of ‘People who can buy exactly the right thing for someone’. My hat’s off to you!
The puzzle has left the table. *sigh* I put all the pieces in a baggie and will eventually take it to a thrift store one of these days. (Who’s kidding who? Most likely it will still be here when Brad comes again in the summer.) I’m quite proud of our accomplishment, though! 1,000 pieces is a lot of pieces! Perhaps one day in the far future someone might solve this same puzzle and then read our story!
It’s Friday night and everyone in the house is unwell. Lloyd has a serious cold, Pfennig may have what Cricket had (we have a vet appointment tomorrow), Cricket has diarrhea (super yuck), and I have allergies. Being the most well of the group, it falls to me to make a post. Wait a minute – it falls to me every time. Those lazy cats don’t ever write a thing.
Speaking of lazy, here’s a way to save yourself an envelope! I’ve been folding up scrap paper like crazy around here. It almost makes me want to write a letter! Ha! The one thing I do even less than call people one the phone is write letters. I don’t even send out Christmas cards. Do you send out Christmas cards?
A while back I said something about how my kids were collecting postcards from all over the country, and we didn’t have one from Maryland. Well, sneaky Peggy mailed one to us, and signed it ‘The Mayor’. I had to admit, I was a little confused (for a second) about who might have sent it, but then I realized that Brad is way too much like me and might have thought about it, but not done it.
Peggy, you’re awesome. I wish you were the Mayor.
It’s the time of the year when the children bring me their sweet little gifts – candles, cocoas, lotions & ornaments. The best part of receiving these presents is how they help me unwrap them. Or is it how they tell me what’s inside right away? (said in a breathless rush) “I got you something in here it’s a snowman do you wanna see it?”
This year I got a card in the mail from the family of one of my little boys. His mom owns a local photo studio and it’s the best card I’ve ever seen! (Sorry to hurt your feelings if you sent me a card, but really – check this out.) My crummy flash has messed with the color variations – it’s really all black & white.
So, if you live in Seward, you know where you should go for photos!
My class finished up a study of Mail a while ago, so imagine my surprise when they said they’d be coming out with mailboxes that look like R2-D2!Â Lincoln has one, so we stopped by on the way to choir to get photos with the celebrity.
(Sorry, I didn’t send out any letters.)
