Sorry this picture is so blurry...not sure why my hands might have been shaking so much. But I had to show it anyway because I just love the look on Jayla's face. I'll tell ya, this little girl is THE best person to give gifts too. She is SO excited about anything you give her - and I do mean ANYTHING. Example: last week while grocery shopping, I picked up a new toothbrush for Jayla. Nothing fancy, no fun characters or anything. It was just your basic CREST kids toothbrush with a white and pink handle. No big deal. Well, when Jayla got home from school that day, she was in her bathroom and saw the new toothbrush. All of a sudden, I hear this squealish scream. So, I run in there to see what might have happened to her. And as I reach the door, she says, "OH MOM...I just LOVE this toothbrush!! It's PERFECT!!!" Now I'm standing there looking perplexed thinking it's JUST a toothbrush. Then she jumps up off the toilet (pants still down around her ankles, mind you, and gives me a big ole hug). She was so excited about it and even said to me, "Mom, you're the BESTESS mom I could ever have! I love you for getting me a BRAND NEW toothbrush!" :-) Uh, you're welcome? lol. After such a heartfelt thank you from my loving daughter, I didn't have the heart to tell her that I only got her a new one so that it would fit in the toothbrush holder...the Princess one she had had too big of a handle.
Ok, back to our regularly scheduled programming...
YES, that's a mailbox in the background! We couldn't believe that this is one of gifts she HAD to have. Jayla loves getting mail and it would be icing on her cake to get it out of her very own mailbox. So, that's what she got.
And this is an up close look at it all "Jayla'd" up :-).
And I'm sure ya'll remember me telling you how "Domesticated" my daughter is, right? :-) Well, here are the best of the best as far as her gifts went :-).
The Disney Princess Cash Register.
She also got a beautiful pink bathrobe. My BIL got that for her and some Princess slippers to go with it. Look, she even wears it while doing her chores :-).
Anyway, it was a fun morning. And every since then, Jayla has been wandering around the house with that bathrobe on and offering to make everyone a cup of coffee...then vacuum up after them :-). She's driving Trae crazy, LOL.
Well, I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week. I've gotta run...I'm being summoned to play Connect Four :-). Toodles!!
