Santa Came Early...

As I was loadin' firewood, I saw the DHL truck pulled off the side of our road. I thought "Could he be deliverin' somethin' here??!!" Sure enough, he was!


**Gasp**The return address was from my very dear friend (and favorite Goober) Cookie of Curd-and-Whey!!!!

I immediately whisked the box into the house grabbin' the closest sharp object to cut through the packin' tape, rememberin' how my choppers didn't do a very good job the last time around.


As I ripped into the box like a monkey on a cupcake (I know I use that expression often but its quite accurate), I found ALL THIS!!!


Would ya look at this bundle of sweetness!!! Her name is "Sugar."


That wonderful peace banner was made by our dear Humble Arts sister Joyce of Everydaysies!


I was so overwhelmed, I bawled my eyes out. After about an hour of waterworks (and lookin' like Alice Cooper); I composed myself long enough to call and thank her.


She's so adorable I have been carryin' her around the house with me. She's quite chatty.



Check out her lil' granny boots! (I had a pair just like 'em back in the 80's.)




Goob, thank you so very much!!!
