I had two green boxes stacked on top of one another in the kitchen. One came from Marlene, as these boxes are actually from a set of three, and the other is the box that has the gifts tucked inside, ready to mail to Marlene. (Marlene couldn’t wait this year so she sent me a box before I could send the one to her!)

Arrine walked into the kitchen and pointed at the boxes, “We opened that box and there were presents inside.” Then she pointed to the second, smaller box and said, “And that box is for Grandma Anne-Marie!”

I squealed with delight, Arrine smiled, and I picked her up and gave her a huge hug and told her how happy she made me.
