Present Time!

Sorry for the delay in posting! All three of us have been under the weather with colds and then due to ice and snow Sarah's school was cancelled Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. To top it off, on Thursday night our heat pump started sounding like a Mac truck. When the repair service came on Friday we found out the the motor is shot in the pump so we had to turn it off completely and rely solely on the emergency heat function. The new motor won't arrive until after the holidays, so we've been trying to figure out what to with our travel plans and Mr. Romeo the cat!

As we ponder "should we stay or should we go" on our trip up North, we're going ahead with our "plan" of having our Christmas TODAY! Actually, Sarah was antsy last night so she opened a few presents then and a few more this morning. The rest will be tonight after dinner.

Of course one gift she wanted last night was the "big box" that has had her mind spinning for days. As the days passed, she kept wanting clues at to what was inside. So I told her:

It's not a toy.
It's not clothes.
It's not much fun "as is" but is fun to use.
It's made of metal, fabric, leather and plastic.
And it is ......

A big rolling PINK suitcase! She was pretty excited because she's looking forward to travelling.

Here are some of the photos from this morning. I'll try to post more after tonight!

And, the AFTERMATH ....

I'm so happy she had a wonderful time! I was wondering what the big gift was to at this rate. ha Glad she loves it and it is something she can use.

Merry Christmas to your three!
