Surprise for Xyra


A great big thank you to Richard at Canon's Virginia service center. He was patient and kind and knowledgeable and got our laptop and camera back on track. 

Who Doesn't Love Pleasant Surprises?

Kaya, Kirsten, Lanie, Melody, Xyra

Seven! You're not helping! (all giggle)
Sure he is; he's keeping everything hidden, isn't he?
So true.
Who has the tissue paper?
I do! I really like the pink tissue.
Perfect, right?
Which ribbon?
Okay, that works.
Here, Kaya, I have it.
Kirsten, you tie it. You're the best at bows.
Oh, but this has wire edges.'s that?
Great and just in time.
Xyra! We have a surprise for you?
Really? How nice. 
A little notebook.
We thought you could keep track of future post ideas in it.
As well as revisit some of those promised in earlier posts.
And it shouldn't get lost because we decorated it for you.
Thank you very much. I love it! It's so sparkly! Of course, now I have to go back and read 190 posts to recall what we promised. 
(all laughing)

Hope you have a great day! Come back again soon!

    1. Thank you.
      Super easy to make too. Compostion book from Dollar Tree plus foam alphabet stickers. The flowers said they were self adhesive, but that wasn't true. We used glue.

  3. Cute! You obviously have dollies who really care about their Mama!! Great idea!
