Giving Thanks On Thursday

Greetings to all, it's me, Maggie.  Today Cammie and I would like to tell you about a very special gift we received in the mail the other day!  It was very exciting and came as a total surprise!  It was from our very special friends, Frankie and Ernie!

Mom helped me unwrap it, then I took a look.

"Oooooh!  It's so beautiful!"

Can you see it?  It's a coaster from the Wendell August place!

"It reads 'For All Who Served - United States of America'.  Oh, I love this!!!"

"Is this not the most beautiful gift?!?!"

Let me have Mom go in for a close-up:

While Mom took another photo of it, Cam came over and we both admired it:

"I can't believe Frankie and Ernie sent this!  They are SO thoughtful!"
"Dad's going to LOVE this!  We should share with him."

Frankie and Ernie wrote a very nice note that was enclosed with the gift.  They said that when they saw it, they thought about our Veterans Day and Memorial Day posts.  They understand just how much our veterans mean to us - especially our favorite veteran -- our dad!!!

"This is so very special!"
"Oh, it is, Cammie!  It really is!"

We were very gentle with it.

"Don't get nose smudgies on it, Maggie."
"OK.  What if I just nibble the wrapping paper a little bit?"

This means so very much to us!

"Thank you from our mom and dad, too!"

Sincerely yours,

  1. You are truly and sincerely welcome.

    We sent a Different pattern to Reilly and Denny... and guess what??? They are going to use it as a TREAT PLATE. Isn't THAT brilliant.

    We are going to insist that mom put OUR treats on them from now on.

    We have one that has a Fancy F on it and one with a Fancy E. So we think THOSE would be PERFECT fur OUR SNACK TRAYS.
    Tell your mom and dad to Put YOURS to GOOD USE.
