A'Tisket, A'Taskets

Shall we make some gift baskets?

'Pup and I brought my family our gifts on Sunday. The presents we brought were a hit and everyone was happy. Two of my great nieces got some new boots, courtesy of a western wear store going out of business. In addition, my oldest great niece got a treasure chest (a wooden box, decorated and made in India), with some jewelry and some hand creme in it. She was thrilled and was putting on her pretties as fast as possible. Then, I gave her a big bag, and her day was complete. I'd been able to find almost all of Marguerite Henry's horse books, and some "Fancy Nancy" books. She started reading almost at once.

She's a girl after my own heart.

Another niece's favorite gift were some red boots. She actually danced around, yelling out "They're red! I got red boots!" as she hopped on first one foot and then another. She put them on right away.

All in all, I think they were pleased. And that makes me pleased.

I also received another, very nice gift Sunday. It came with a story even more precious than it is.

That's for another post.


  1. Marguerite Henry books! That would have been my idea of heaven as a Christmas gift years ago. I can't tell you how thrilled I was when we finally visited Chincoteague and Assateague Islands and saw the herds of wild horses. I looked for Misty!

  2. There's nothing like happy young people on Christmas day. It makes it finally Christmas, somehow.

    That was nice...


Plant a seed!
