I Think She Liked It


More later once I tackle some laundry and get a particularly lively three year old into the bed.

  1. That picture is worth a thousand words! Glad you caught it!

  2. can’t wait to hear the whole story!

  3. Oh! I don’t believe it! I just don’t believe it! Oh, it’s just DARLING – I just do not believe it! How did you KNOW just how perfect it would be? Sissie, isn’t it just darling? Oh, I just don’t believe it! It’s just-the-cutest-thing-I-have-ever-SEEN! Oh, it’s just darling!
    (Darling pic of Martha, by the way)

  4. Phyllis R. says:

    What a shot!! I just wish the picture came with sound!

  5. What a great moment, frozen in time!!! I hope you snapped a picture of her modeling it for everyone. Very precious.

  6. Made me smile!!

  7. That’s an awesome picture! I think she LOVED it!

  8. Please explain to me how a good Southern woman, who most likely enjoys good Southern food, can be that darn svelte? (I almost typed “skinny,” but she’s Southern, after all, so it has to be “svelte.”) I need to know her secret!

  9. I just have to laugh! Just yesterday I read your post with the pictures of her doing what I can only imagine is the electric slide. This lady is hilarious! My husband is from the south and his Mimi looks EXACTLY like her!

  10. Clearly, that is one of the biggest understatements of the year!

  11. Obviously, SHE.LOVED.IT. (especially because it came from SteinMart(s)!!!! Made me smile, too!

  12. I love it when you get a gift just right.

  13. Christmas personified. Period. That’s the best Christmas photo I’ve seen yet.

    And I love Sister. She gets it.

  14. That is priceless! I am so glad your holidays were so wonderful!


  15. What a wonderful shot. . .

  16. To use your own words, “I laughed and clapped my hands” when I saw this picture.

  17. She definately looked excited. It seems everyone could tell what it is that you gave her except me. Is it a cloth angel? Sorry I can’t tell but she sure loves it I can tell that much!!

  18. You could SO sell this picture to a greeting card company…..
    This picture what we all hope that people feel when they open a gift from us. How wonderful that she expresses it!

  19. That is the PICTURE. OF. THE. YEAR. :)

  20. This is the most awesome picture I’ve ever seen!!!

  21. Priceless.

  22. What an absolutely precious picture! My great-aunt Mayme had on a lovely angel pin at church today. I told her how nice it looked and she said it was her Christmas gift from Jessica, and that it meant so much to her because Jessica said it reminded her of her, although “I’m no angel” (is this sentence long enough, or what?). Jessica is a 10-year-old girl at church. Apparently she and her mother made a special shopping trip because she wanted to buy my great-aunt a pin for Christmas.

    To make a very long story short, this picture makes me think of my sweet aunt and her joy over that pin.
