I love my dear friend, Nancy. We've been friends for 14 years now & met on an airplane (sitting next to each other). Nancy has always looked over me & loves to take care of me & my family. Every year for Christmas she sends BOXES FULL of presents for our family. She is such a sweetheart. She always seems to take care of the shoe, clothing, coat department for me & the kids LOVE the stuff she sends.
For Christmas, everyone always gets a pair of boots. . .
new coats. . .
a few fun fillers like make-up, socks, & hair stuff . . .
pajamas. . .
and other fun accessories. Here's the kids "spoils" for this year:
Now when it comes to me, Nancy REALLY SPOILS ME ROTTEN. We counted 29 gifts this year (crazy I know) & there is always one present labeled
"Open Me Last."
This is always some sort of specialty jewelry. Nancy is a gemologist & knows everything there is to know about gemstones, value, grades, color, etc. I never know what's going to be in that little package, but I know I'll love it.
This year I got a pair of 1 1/2 karat (3 karats total) Morganite earrings. Morganite is from the same family as an Emerald. Some people call them pink emeralds, but a true gemologist knows they're relatives but very different. My earrings are a beautiful shade of pink & are set in rose gold which is a favorite of mine. I LOVE THEM.
Here's me with my haul of goodies. I got 3 pairs of church shoes, some boots, a purse, scarves & gloves, a fun Christmas village set, TONS of kitchen stuff, a rice cooker, jewelry, & much more. It was SO FUN. Thank you Nancy for spoiling my whole family rotten.
Trek was spoiled with a new wardrobe of shirts. I think he got 7 or 8 of them. Then he got a giant peppermint stick & a nutcracker. Nancy buys him a nutcracker every Christmas to add to his collection.
Thank you Nancy for making our Christmas extra special.
