Rochelle and Tony's original plans this year were to send their gifts with their brothers who had planned to visit us during the holidays. Only "when" turned into "if' and then "not this year". Tony called the day the package was mailed and said that it would be late. I am glad it didn't come before Christmas as I knew their gift to Jenna would put all of ours to shame - even Snoopy. Oh, Jenna still loves Snoopy but is more excited by the gift from their family.
Her gift may have been the first that was placed in the box as it was not on top, rather my favorite part of the package. The thoughtful gift of hand-made ornaments and pictures sent with crafted foam and on a house shaped plaque designed for "family".
Since the first time Jenna had watched her first episode of "Psych" she became an instant fan. She loves Shawn Spencer and now the pineapple. Her goal right now is to rewatch the series to find the pineapple that supposedly exists in each episode. Tony's family had sent the first six seasons of Psych and Jenna is thrilled. If it had been her only gift Jenna would have been fine with it.
I love listening to her laughter. It reminds me of watching movies and sitcoms with Tony. He is actually my favorite person to watch sitcoms with. He has such a cute laugh and is easily amused. I do miss his laugh and his enthusiasm.
Some of their gifts and thoughtfulness this year was really clever. I started reading the book they sent me though I have not gotten too far into it. I was trying to read as much as I can before school starts back up again. Just one more week left of programming and emotional psychology. I don't know what I will have after that.
2017 has flown by so quickly! It's hard to believe it's almost over. I wonder if 2018 will fly just as quickly.
