All The Way From MA

In November my Mom sent us 7, yes seven, boxes of books. If you know my Mom you know she is a voracious reader. She has been collecting Christian fiction for years. She recently decided to clean her collection out. When we were visiting this summer she had Sweet Pea & I go through 3 huge boxes of books and pick out what we wanted. Since we didn't have any room in the van to bring them back with us she promised she would mail them later. It was like Christmas when they arrived!

The postman was very kind & stacked them all by the front door for us.

Grannie tucked a few goodies in each box.

Princess said, "Ooooo!" when she saw Mr. Snowman.

She wore these mittens around the house for hours. She also kept this sweet little apron on which I adore. My older girls used to wear it when they visited Nana & helped her bake.


Gloves, a pencil & glue stick for Bugsy.

The girls dove right into the books.

Princess had such a fun time. She grabbed 2 of the pencils & had a rocki'n time drumming on the boxes. Lol!

Rock n' Roll!

She sang along too!

Bookworms that we are the girls & I are devouring the books. Thank you, Mom/Grannie!
