From Phil's Dad and Family:
|All I've wanted to eat this week is sugar in its most vilified form. You're looking at my breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the foreseeable future.|
I stupidly deleted the first video I took of Bella checking out this other great elephant toy. It was twelve times funnier than this one. We'll have to imagine it together.
From My Sister:
|More of the basic food groups. Those nerd jelly beans, or whatever they are, are fantastic! I've eaten most of them already.|
From Phil's Mom:
|Last, but in no way least, this is the sweater that Phil's mom knitted. We love it so much. She has such a talent for knitting, and we're thrilled to benefit from it.|
In reading back through this post, it struck me that I started off saying how much Phil and I appreciate these gifts, then when I really got to describing them, it made it sound like they were addressed to me and me alone. Good. I'm glad I'm clearly conveying my inner self. These are my presents, and I love them. Phil's very thankful for them, too, but less thankful than he would be if I'd share. It's not going to happen, except maybe, maybe, with the chips and salsa.
Thank you for the wonderful gifts. We love all of you. We can't wait to see you.
