Gifty goodness

This morning, while I was busy packing reading blogs, I got a knock at the door. The knock was ever-so-slight that I wasn't completely sure if it was a knock or if Deuce was jumping around in his packing box. I figured I should go to the door and check. Lo and behold it was Hoppy the bow-legged postman and he had a package for Little Maple!

I'd post a picture of the envelope, but well, it has my full address on it...so you'll just have to imagine the cuteness. It was addressed "Little Maple", c/o Rhonda's Mom, c/o Rhonda and Josh...too cute! Anyways, when I flipped the envelope over, it said "Can be stored away until the time is right...Just don't want you to think you were missing out..." I thought it was very sweet of Michelle and Mark to think of us in this way...and to 'preface' the packaging in such a way to take our beliefs into account.

I waited impatiently for Josh to come home, so we could open it together, but he ended up working until about 7:00 and then we went out for dinner.

When we were finally home, I HAD to rip that sucker open. I simply had to...and this is what I found inside...

A beautiful, handmade sweater! I can't wait to see "Little Maple" wearing it...Couldn't you just die from the cuteness?
