...have been more of a blur than any days I can remember. Lots of hustle getting orders out, Christmas Eve Guatemalan tamales made by my Grandma, Christmas morning, and making time for our new family member. She doesn't have a name yet but she was my sister's (and mine too) favorite Christmas present. Trail mix was a thoughtful gift from my friend Jessica!
Jeremiah is so good about bringing me flowers, anything with these faint shades of pink are perfect to me. Saturday we went to a football game, the last home game. Our first date was in this very stadium and I couldn't help but feel nostalgic. This is the first year I went tree shopping alone. It was delivered last night and Israel was so excited, he kept yelling "Christmas tree!". He helped me put the decorations on the tree while eating some of the gingerbread ornaments. I'm excited for Christmas this year more than most, Israel is old enough to enjoy all of these little traditions and it makes the holidays so much more fun.
I love these beautiful wood vessels. I've always wondered how raw wood does not soak up all food colors and juices, or does it? Or are these lightly finished with something? I may never know, I think the site is in Japanese.
AlexandAlexa sent this cute little classic car to Israel. I really wanted the white one, color looks so ugly on our even uglier carpets, and by mistake the red one was sent. As soon as I let them know, this beautiful book was sent over as a gift! We love them both and the car was an instant hit with Israel. He calls it his "new car" or "red car". Thankfully, it's also big enough for him to grow into some so this will last him a while.
Let me just say again how much we love this little car, I am not complaining, I just wanted to explain what happened to express how wonderful AlexandAlexa's customer service is and how prompt they were. It's a lovely car, even the red is wonderful, we are happy with it and thankful for such a fun new toy!
I'd say it's a good to problem to have when you've sold so much that you need to come up with something new just to have stock. Working on adding this and several others today. I've got to shoot while there still light, these short Winter days are brutal.
