Since my brothers & I all live far from where our parents live, my mom sent us a few presents for Christmas. My mom has a tradition of buying the same/similar things for us (to keep it even so we don’t fight!), & after she sent our packages, she wanted to make sure they had arrived. She sent us a group email…
Did everyone get their book we sent?
Love to all.
Dad and Mom
It's a book? Well now you've ruined the surprise!
We have received the present but have not opened it yet. Isn't one of the best parts of Christmas the anticipation? :)
Oh for sure! I felt the present & had a few guesses... Something from Ikea, a ream of paper, a package of cookies, I can't WAIT to find out what's really in there!
I thought maybe it was a book but it was wrapped so I put it under the tree since there was nothing else there yet.
I guess I could have smelled it, maybe it is a box of chocolates. (life is like that)
Love Kurt and family.
Well you might be surprised! I was asking because I sent it media rate, which was a lot cheaper, but I didn't know how long it would take to get to you. They also told me they could open the package to check if it really was media and I better not have anything else in there!
The anticipation was killing us, but we held off opening until Christmas. It WAS a book after all! My uncle had recently written his memoir, & my Mom got us all signed copies! (She had also included him on the email thread, so he could see all the excitement building for the big reveal!)
