Delivery Day


Who doesn't love to see the UPS man stop at their house? And then the Edible Arrangements guy? And the DHL guy? And the USPS guy? And other various men bearing gifts?? It was a pretty good day, considering I'm housebound.
First the Edible Arrangement arrived (Yum--Thanks Auntie Judy and Coach!), then the UPS man brought a thin padded envelope, inside of which was a personalized t-shirt and tutu (pictured above) from the Graneses (Lez--you rock!). In the mailbox was stuffed another padded envelope. When the DHL truck pulled up I was almost relieved to find it was for Mark! But then Mark came home and his hands were full of gifts from a customer, followed right behind by a Clancy Homes employee toting a fat cigar for Mark and a gorgeous new outfit for Ellen
But really, you are all so generous. THANK YOU for all of the cool fun presents!

We are so very glad that you liked the tutu and tee. What a treat to see it on your blog especially since the company said they were delivering it tomorrow.

I thought that outfit would look just spectacular on Mark -- perhaps in the same blue as his eyes --- but, alas it didn't come in his size. So, lucky Ellie was the recipient.

Besides, you have a lot of kids now so I thought the "personized" thing would help. If you are anything like me, you run through the entire list of child and pet names out loud before you manage to articulate the correct child's name at the appropriate time. (Shae, Maya, Rufus, Matilda, Clyde Bob... whatever your name is... put down that sharp knife and your hair is on fire!)

We thought that the "E" and the "Ellen" would be a helpful prompt for you as you say sweet loving things to your newest family member.

Please just tell Ellen that this is our little gift to her so that she can quickly learn that her beautiful name is "Ellen" and not "MargaretCarolineLinnyMarkEllen" :-)

Lots and lots and lots of love to all,

PS I hope the UPS man was incredibly handsome.
