The Gift

It arrived today. There has been much hype about it for a good week or so now here. It was more anticipated in our house than the new Harry Potter book... and it is finally here on the same day! And it was well worth the hype! I have to admit I had no idea what it was before I opened the box. I'm just glad it wasn't wax b/c the mailman left it out on my patio in 110 degree weather!

The note says that it is to be Ella's to hug and cuddle and love to pieces... but mommy is going to have a hard time turning it over!

The pictures don't do it justice -- it is absolutely gorgeous!!

My deepest heart felt appreciation to Christopher, Noah, and Benjamin who gave up their wife and mommy for a few weeks while she lovingly put together this quilt for Ella.

And I would call, but I can't stop crying and your phone number is on my cell phone, which is in Texas at a DCI competition so it won't let anyone be distrubed by answering the silly phone!

Thanks, Stephanie and guys! I'll get photos of Ella with it when she wakes up!

(Felix approves. He's sleeping on it already.... I've moved it twice and he follows it around.)
