An Unexpected Gift

On Christmas Eve the postman rang our doorbell to deliver one last gift. We were pleasantly surprised by it. It came in beautiful green packaging. It was from a very dear, dear lady from my online knitting group. A while ago I had shared how over-excited Abigail got when she saw her first ever pink Christmas tree at Kohl's. It wasn't just usual excitement. She was beside herself. :-) It was so funny that I had to tell the online group and shortly a discussion about pink trees followed. So when I unwrapped the present and found a pink tree inside, it just made me laugh. Gigi told us that her and her husband Dave had gone to Kohl's and found these trees on clearance and just couldn't help themselves. They just had to buy it. Abigail was more than happy they did! She was thrilled. Here are the pictures.

This is when Abigail first sees the tree. Unfortunately Nathan walked through the picture at the same time.
"Mama, it's so pretty!"

"And it has lights!"

Feeling it, admiring it.

Then she literally did the happy dance. She was moving around too much, so the picture didn't come out that good.

She asked if she could decorate it and we were sure she would go "steal" some of our ornaments. However, she went and got all her necklaces, bracelets and hair clips and put them on her tree. How fitting, wouldn't you say? Most of them are pink so they are hard to see.

Thank you Gigi and Dave! That was really sweet and Abigail is loving the tree.
