Sunday, Oct 7th ~ Party at Dad's
Dad hosted dinner & went all out with decorations & familiar dishes.
Then to my surprise, my family broke the rules & gave gifts.
My sisters had several of MY favorite things wrapped in a bag. The bag also included a list of some THEIR favorite things about me - which was MY FAVORITE thing in the bag.
My dad's gift was very special too.
In January 2008, Mom stayed with my kids while Aaron & I vacationed. We thanked her with a Lladro to add to her collection. She put it in her curio next to her other Lladro Ballerinas.
After she passed away, I hoped that one day, I could have it.
Dad wrapped it up and gave it to me. Needless to say my feelings of gratitude came flooding out my eyes. I was surprised and so thankful.
Aaron's gift came in the form of a VACATION!!
