My house

My best friend, Crystal, is the greatest. I'm sorry if I offend any of you really great friends out there, but I truly have the best friend ever. Let me tell you one reason why.

She bought me a house.

Yes, you read that correctly, a house. She sent me a card for my birthday. A very adorable card. And in the card it said she bought me what I had always wanted. Something for me and my hubby, and for our future little ones.

The next day, I received a package in the mail. In the package there were a few household items: some putty (which was adopted by Hubby before I could even play with it- good thing I love him), a sea horse that grows, a rubber squeezy thing to play with, and a "Quick Puzzle" of two little kittens. And, to put all of my new household items in, a house. A 1000 piece Thomas Kinkade Painter of Light house. A house of my very own!

I haven't done a jigsaw puzzle in years. Not only was I amazed by her creativity, I am impressed that she is so thoughtful. I have two table clothes on my table, so that I can work on it without having to put it away. I will probably do the little one first, and then the bigger one. But I will be sure to post a completed picture- if only to show that I did it :) Ahh, to be young and free to play again. Thanks, Crystal, for bringing this back to me.
