Okay, I am a wee bit mean, and I've been called wrong a time or two. So without further delay, as mentioned and promised in the previous entry...
From Baby D and her parents:
Love the plaque; it is perrrrrfect for the kitchen. And the eldest daughter made the other gift; a spiral bound desk calendar. Each page is two-sided, with one side decorated in scrapbook style ready for photos and the other contains a monthly calendar grid covered in write-on/wipe off acetate (April is shown). How clever is that? A perpetual calendar I can personalize with my own photos (which is exactly what I was doing last night)! Love it, love it, love it.
She knows I love candles! Who doesn't love candles? And these are scented with one of my favorites, hazelnut. I'm a huge fan of hazelnut flavored coffee, creamer, syrup...and now candles. :)
From Sam's mom:
A little something to greet the visitor's...errr, make that a really big something...a really big lady bug. Is she not the coolest guest greeter ever? I've got my very own iron lady bug...so much better than an iron butterfly. ;)
And, last but definitely not least...all I wanted was a zoom lens for my Olympus camera. That's all I really wanted. Sammy had something much better in mind...
I got the zoom lens alright, with a brand new Canon attached to it. This camera is amazing; it does so much! I have to pack the book with me so I can figure out all the nifty features. Nifty...nifty...nifty. I love that word. And I am so happy with my new zoom lens. See the words 5.0 and 12x on the lower left of the box? My Olympus is 4.0 megapixels, with only a 3x zoom. Oh yeah...we are talking serious zoom on this baby!!!
Best part about all the gifts was the element of surprise!!!!! I didn't know what anyone planned to give me so it was like finding treasure. Knowing what you're getting is so boring...I love being surprised, it's so much more fun!
So, now you know why I've been a bit absent...I've been out playing with my new zoom lens. :)
Okay...Kelly? Do you still think I am so mean?
