The DD’s Aunt Nora is so nice!! She always sends presents to the girls on Christmas, and their birthdays.
This year is no different.
She sent a huge box. Always a lovely surprise to get a package in the mail! Especially since this time, my name was on it!! Quite a surprise! I managed to control myself long enough till the girls got here. Then we tore into it!!
I slit the tape, and PP reached in to get the presents. After we had everything out, PP literally began tearing into the presents! Mommy and I had to holler, “Stop!” We explained she didn’t even know whose present she was opening. (Turns out, it was CC’s.) So, moving on… (Of course, Mommy let them open them the next morning, before school. “Can’t make ’em wait till Christmas to open presents” is a generational disease our family has. It passed down thru my Dad, to me, now DD1 is infected. Sadly, no cure is known. Happily, it only flares up once a year, so we just bravely suffer in silence.)
There were boxes, and boxes of cookies! And chocolate candy!! Those got the girls’ attention! Especially since one was smashed open!
Who needs presents when there’s cookies!!! They were sooo good!! Aunt Nora is a wonderful cook!!
True to her name, ChunkChunk, had a big chunk bitten off before you could say “Rudolph!”
AND, Aunt Nora sent me a present this time!! A beautiful hand painted cookie jar, to put the cookies in. Any that survive the initial onslaught, that is. ie: not many!!
Yummy!! She still remembers I love purple!! What a thoughtful ex-sister-in-law!! I wrote her a nice “Thank you” text. And sent pix of the girls wearing their new clothes and shoes!!
Aunt Nora loves her niece, and grand nieces!! And it even feels like she still loves me!!
