Thank you blogger buddies!!!

When Paige and I got home last night, my mom said that there were two packages laying on my bed. We went back there and opened them up, not knowing what they could be (all of my Matilda Jane orders are in : ) The first box had a bag of goodies and the sweetest card. Paige asked me if she could read the card to me. She got about three lines into it and I began to weep. Kerry was so thoughtful to remember us during the holidays. Kerry, I am so grateful for you! Your words were so tender and genuine and were exactly what I needed to hear at this time. I just love ya, girl! You are a precious friend. She also sent Paige a beautiful Nutcracker ornament, two American Girl books and a book of panda stickers. You made Paige's night! She started reading the Julie book last night : ) Thank you for your heart of gold!!! Love ya!
The other package was very strange. It had Paige's name, our address (duh : ), but on the return address it said Blogger Doe and didn't have a return address. WHO ARE YOU??? : ) Whoever you are, and you know who you are...THANK YOU for Paige's mouse hat!!! Oh my word, it is the cutest hat I have ever seen! She was so excited that she wore it to school this morning. She really cannot wait to be a mouse in the Nutcracker and you gave her a gift that made her beam! I wish you would email me and let me know who you are!!! We loved the gift so much!
Here is Paige this morning before school. She wanted me to take a picture with "Binky" her elf in the background. We have learned the hard way not to place Binky anywhere that she can see him when she first wakes up, as it startles her. This morning she found him perched up on her head board and he had a note attached with some of the other elves signatures. That was a BIG hit : )
Kerry, she LOVES the books and is all ready to get the tree up so she can hang her Nutcracker. Tell Grace and Maddie thank you, too : ) We love y'all!

Thank you secret blogger for the mouse hat! It is just the cutest little thing I have ever seen. We love it!!! She is wearing it today to rehearsals : )

During this holiday season, I would just like for Paige to know how thankful I am for her. She is such a loving, compassionate, spunky monkey of a child. She brings her jie jie more happiness than she will ever know! I am thankful for you, Paige!
