best Christmas EVER!!

This morning Kail found a present by our front door for me.  The note said:

to JaNae- Open now or wait until Christmas.  You are so loved.
Merry Christmas. From some of Santa's elves.

The kids wanted to open it right away.  I wanted to wait.  My sister came over and hung out and we talked about what it might be & who it might be from.  The kids asked a hundred more times to open it but I held strong.  Well that is until the kids went to bed.  Then I decided the note said I could open it now, and I'm terrible at waiting, so I did.  

And you wouldn't be able to wipe the smile off my face!

A Blendtec Blender!! People you do not even know!  I have been wanting one of these for forever!
I was dying, DY-ing!!
I had to call my sister right away.  She was so mad I didn't open it when she was there.  I'm seriously still in shock, and pretty sure the "elves" are going to show up any minute to tell me it was a mistake and take it back.  
 I'm DY---ing!

You know with Gary being gone (this will be our first Christmas apart)  I was kind of expecting my life to be insane, with me ending up hating everything.  But it hasn't been.  I've been uncharacteristically calm.  
It's been a wonderful season so far and this just makes it so much more.

so Thank You Thank You elves!!
(even though I don't deserve it)

now how & to who am I going to pay this forward...


(Oh and I have to tell you that Kail thinks I must be something special because after he read the note he said "Santa's elves know you? wow"  and that was present enough)

Awesome! That is so exciting!
Um...what is a green smoothie?

Wendy said...

WoooHoooooooo!!!! That's some of the best news EVER!! You'll never cook dinner again. :) And who says you don't deserve it? Of course you do. (I'm totally unbiased.)

Jana said...

YEA!!!!!! This makes me so happy, you deserve it and hopefully we will be good company this Christmas while you are missing Gary:(. Love you!

Ha ha. I love that Kail thinks you're on the down low with Santa (because you are, right?) and that elves are taking care of you this Christmas. You deserve the best. Love to you all and Gary! XOXO
