Such Wonderful Gifts for Saturday

The weather here went suddenly to "warm enough to spin a flag" again and even though I know it will only be around for a very short time, it made me wonder if I had forgotten all the wonderful gifts of Christmas time...the snow came just in time for my birthday.  The icy roads stuck around longer.  So as I went for my walk this morning with just a jacket on, thanking God for all His wonderful gifts and warm sunshine, I thought I would share some of our special gifts we received for Christmas lollipops (love the names, don't you?)  Chocolate Monopoly, what a great idea and they played the game before eating the chocolates, but were disappointed you couldn't eat the board too!  Then there were the special handmade gifts...crocheted and baked goodies, and we were lucky to receive more beautiful doilies from my grandmother.  Some other special handmade gifts were these beautiful little pendants, the little Emily pin, and flower necklace made with origami paper, all made by Judy (artsyclay) Mary already wore the necklace to school and got awesome reviews from her friends and teachers so we thank you for sending treats for Emily that she approves of, so they must be tasty little heart shaped treats.
