Last night our doorbell rang around 9 pm. When I opened the door, no one was there but on the step someone had left a note: "On the first day of Christmas..." and two packages of pnut butter/chocolate candies.

How fun!! I have to say, this has really warmed my heart. As an adult, Christmas has lost some of its surprise and mystery for me. It is really neat to think that someone out there (church, probably) has thought of our family as someone who could use this sort of attention this year. It means a lot. And of course, the kids are super excited about it :)

We've been getting lots of fun things for the kids. On Wednesday, Petey wrote a note and we all signed it and left it on the porch. It was a thank you. I hope they really do realize how much we appreciate this. It has made the holiday season so special.

I loved it when my folks got picked on year. We found out it wasn't our ward. It was our neighbors. It was one year we wouldn't have Christmas because my Dad was out of work. :)

This will be a Christmas your kids will remember when they are older. I still remember it. I don't remember every night but i remember a few things.
