Merry Christmas!!

Well the day is almost upon us!
I can't believe how fast time goes and how much fun I have had decorating and looking at all of the Christmas goodness out there in blogland!

I wanted to show you a package I received in the mail today. A very special package from a very special friend!

Deborah from With All My Heart..Deborah sent me these precious gifts


A sleigh ornament and a coffee ornament from Tim Hortons where she gets some of her yummy Chai Tea Lattes! Some candy canes that I will use in my hot chocolate (another of her favorite drinks), a chocolate bar (YUM), doggie treats for the four legged kiddos (they LOVE them) and a beautiful chicken wire planter that I can't wait to find a home for in my house and fill it!!


This is how it all came wrapped up! I love the beautiful colors and all raffia ribbon is just so perfect!



Well I mostly finished up my wrapping, with the exception of a few more, and placed the gifts under my tree.

See that little envelope tucked in the with the gifts?

This one right here...


This little envelope also came in the box with my my gifts with specific instructions on it!


I feel like a little kid again wanting to peek inside and see what is in it and what it says,

BUT

I promise that I will not!!

Thank you so much my dear friend!!


I wanted to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and to know that I am so thankful and blessed for all of you!
I hold you all in my hearts dearly and hope and pray that you know that no matter where you are and who you are missing that the joy of the season comes from deep inside and that those who have left us are there in our hearts and memories and embracing us this holiday season.

I also want you to know that no matter what you believe or how you celebrate this coming week I wish you all the very best and may peace and love reign on you!!

This is my last post until after Christmas, feeling a bit under the weather and just plain run down (too much holiday fun I guess :) )

Enjoy your week and the up coming days!!!

Love you all!!

How fun, Michelle! Always nice to get a surprise gift in the mail. I love the little chicken wire planter. I'm sure you'll find the perfect spot for it. Your tree and packages are adorable! Hope you get to feeling better, soon! I didn't have internet all morning. I cleaned everything in this house...lol. It should probably happen more often. Will miss you!
