This afternoon I retrieved the mail from the box, usually one of the kids will get there before I do. The box was pleasingly full, and in going through the stack, I found a padded envelope from Jenna Magee - for me!! Inside was a lovely note from Jenna and Blue Carnations kit by Victoria Sampler!! She had received the needleroll already stitched in an exchange, so she sent me the kit from her stash. I had commented on her blog months ago about waiting too long to order this limited edition kit and she remembered! Isn't she just the sweetest!!
Thank you sooo much, Jenna! I will treasure these pieces all the more since they came from you!!
There was more excitement in the house yesterday. Kirsten and her Daddy went to their first father/daughter ball which was sponsored by Calvary Chapel. Kirsten's Grandma Aska bought her a new outfit for the dance last weekend when DH and kids went to Boise. She looked so very grownup! They both had lots of fun and saw lots of friends. Kirsten was eager to show me the yellow candy rose she received, as it matches the yellow in our kitchen and living room. She immediately grabbed a little vase to put it in and it's now displayed in the window sill over my sink.
