A SPECIAL GIFT

 THIS came in the mail last night.  What a thoughtful gift from our cute friends in Australia.  I love that Lisa bought one for Ben AND Noah.  She took a picture for me so that I could post it.  I'm not as good a photographer as Lisa, but I wanted a similar shot.  I wish I could have taken it with my real Ben, but this was the best I could do.  (the lighting is not good either because it was taken at night)
(This sketch of Benny is from our trip to Disney World, it's hanging right next to our tree)
Thank you Lisa...for making my day a little brighter.

Oh it looks so pretty, and I love the photo you took with the pic of Ben behind it too :) i wish I had the pic of the ornaments together - maybe one day I'll come across it.
I can only imagine how hard this time of year is after the year you have had, but just wanted to let you know we were thinking of you. xxxx

That is a perfect gift. I love that she thought of it long enough ago to get it mailed in time. Wow.

That is so beautiful. Lisa is one amazing person. She can come and visit you one day but we aren't letting her go. :)
