What's That You Say..The Mailman Is Here?!

So Yesterday we received our first Christmas present in the mail. Yes, you heard it correctly! Since most of our family lives in Michigan, we get a lot of our gifts via the mailman!! So we came home to find a big box from Uncle Jarrett and Aunt Kelly. Thankfully the inside box was wrapped so now we actually have a present to put under our undecorated tree and it isn't even Thanksgiving yet! So the box that it came in was pretty big and of course, boys being boys, started goofing around with it and all of a sudden I hear Brendan say "Wrap me up and ship me to Halee!" For those of you that don't know, Halee is Brendan's 'girlfriend' and also MiMi's oldest daughter. They have been friends since before they were a year old and attended Gymboree classes together. I think the hardest thing about moving cross country for Brendan was moving away from Halee! He has a picture of her on his nightstand that he kisses every night after his prayers! So...anyways back to the post, he decided that he wanted to be mailed back to Halee and OF COURSE I took pics!! Watch out Halee, you never know what or who may show up on your doorstep!!

"Mom, send me to Halee's, willya?!"
Colin's thinking...Can I have his room?! When does the post office open anyways?!

And for those of you who have been asking about me and is an update! I am doing well, although very sore when I get home at night. I am still trying to get my barrings again and regaining the class, but I think, all in all, it is going well. The worst pain was Monday night; I was very sore from all of the hugging. They know now to hug me from the side and not to squeeze! The more I walk, the less pain I feel, but as soon as I sit down, Whoa! The worst part about being gone for 7 weeks is hearing "Mrs. M*** didn't do it like that!" What's that you say, who didn't do it like what?! This is STILL my classroom right!! So there you have it, slow moving and sore, but hanging in there! You gotta figure, I only had 8 days and then Thanksgiving break and then go back for 3 weeks and get Christmas break; I think I planned that pretty well! What do you think?! And once again, thank you for all of your kind words and wishes along with all of the prayers. I have said before and I will say it again, You are the best bloggy friends in all of bloggyland!! But I will admit that this work thing is getting in the way of my blogging and it just ain't right!!

how cute.
Glad things are going well for you at school.
I think that you have great timing. Though after Christmas, going the long stretch until Easter break may be difficult.

Debra said...

Ok, I think this is one of the cutest posts I have ever read...ship me to Halee....! Honestly, Stacey!

I want to be shipped to Mimi's too!

I hope your soreness eases up some. Jay's first day back was ok..he came home early extremely sore! Today he is gonna try a full day. Still no pathology report.
