UPS did not disappoint...we just LOVE them!!!!!!!!!!!! You guessed it...we just got a call from Katie and Josh...the train arrived on their front porch a few minutes ago. UPS has made my Christmas...there is no better feeling for a grandma or a Mamie in my case. I made Josh promise to make sure he had that camera ready to go when Hampton finds that Santa present. He said he would...so as soon as I get it I'll post it. Thank you all for your good thoughts and all those fingers and toes crossed. Blogland is the BEST!
Kelly asked us to tell a favorite Christmas memory...well I have to tell you this S.C. Ruffey Train adventure will probably go down in the books as a great memory...but my very favorite one was when Josh was just Hampton's age and he said we had to put carrots out for Santa's reindeer along with Santa's cookies. So a large bunch of carrots was placed on a plate. After Josh went to bed Andy and I ate the cookies, left some crumbs behind...drank the glass of milk and broke most of the carrots off and chewed on the ends...the carrots were very gnawed on. Christmas morning Josh nearly exploded with excitement...we thought he was excited about Santa...well, he was but he was more excited that the reindeer were in his house and they ate the carrots he left out. Every year after that we had to leave cookies and milk for Santa and carrots for the reindeer. The joy of Christmas through the eyes of a child...my favorite thing.
Merry, Merry Christmas to all of you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
