Thanks Peepaw!

Ella and James were very excited to receive some wonderful presents from Grandpa (or as Ella says, "Peepaw") last week!

Did I say excited? Maybe I mean crazily happy, or gleefully surprised . . .

Grandpa brought Ella an enormous dollhouse for Christmas, and he just sent her more people, kids and furniture to put in it!

She was ecstatic!

Here she is saying " Aww . . . beautiful!"

"Look, Mom! A Mommy!"

"Awww . . . pretty!"

Already putting one of the little girls to "Baby 'night 'night" . . .

"A kitty!"

Seriously, EVERY SINGLE doll or piece of furniture that came out of the box received an equally excited reaction!

Grandpa, in case you didn't know it, Ella LOVES each and everything thing that was in the box! Thanks for feeding her dollhouse addiction--she and I will remember these moments ALWAYS.

Now, on to what James got--American Bricks!

According to Dad, every middle class little boy in America had these--they are from the 50s and are made of wood.

Sadly, Dad was not able to have any of these when he was young. But now James has some!

I love the colors and the textures.

They have been keeping James and his imagination busy!

Aren't they neat?

Thanks Grandpa!

Love you!

Ahhhhh....Ella is so cute opening her presents. She really has an expressive face. And...those bricks are the coolest--like wooden Legos! Matty would have gone wild for them. He still plays with his Legos...
