Creativity and Ramblings from the heart of NYC and around the World

Wednesday, April 13, 2005


Today is my first day in the office in nearly a month---which means boxes and piles of things that need my attention "RIGHT NOW" are covering my desk.

Secret pal cardOn the very very - OMG have I finally reached the bottom - BOTTOM was the much anticipated package from my Secret Pal that had arrived the day AFTER I left on my world wind tour.

Scarf Style bookDrumroll PUH-LEASE...
She sent this GREAT CARD (who knew there were Secret Pal CARDS out there?)and...she sent my THE BOOK...the book I have had in my "I WANT" listing in my sidebar for months!!! YEAH! YIPPEE!!!

Niece opening box It's a Wellie Thing
How do I love my niece...let me count the ways...
Niece opening boxShe knows that you are supposed to tear the paper to get to the gift (none of this saving the paper stuff here!) Although she tears each piece off and hands it to you as not to make a mess (did not get that from my gene pool!) She's ALREADY a shoe-a-holic at age 2...largely prompted by yours truely. After she opened the pink wellies she danced around and had to go NOW to get dressed so she could try the on. As you can see here...she was very happy to show off her new shoes. :-) Niece opening boxLater on in the day when the guests arrived, there were more presents to be opened...and of course...the hit of the moment? Learning how to pop the bubbles on bubble wrap! :-) Niece opening boxIt took a few moments of assisted popping before she pushed my hand out of the way and she was off on a popping rampage! YEAH! Finally it was time for the cake...and who doesn't like CAKE? She puckered up and blew...isn't she just adorable? The party was a success and fun was had by all!
Now I just have to secure the last ball of yarn (again) for her dress. That's tomorrow's job.

Your niece is a sweetie! and those boots are so cute too. I've been hunting bookshops for that book too, but no luck yet. All the more fun when I finally lay my hands on it! Keep in touch and let's see if we get to meet up in May!
