Tell A Stranger Thank You

I texted a photo of N. & I to a total stranger today. We received some awesome active-wear Columbia jackets from my aunt, and I thought she might like to see a picture of us wearing them. My dad gave me her number & I sent the pic around 10:30 this morning, with this message: "Hi Aunt P! This is T. :) N. & I love our jackets! Thank you so much! The color choices and sizes are perfect :) Please tell Uncle R. and M. hello and Merry Christmas. Hope y'all have a wonderful day!! Everyone sends their love <3

At 10:30 this evening I received this: Sorry you have the wrong number. Standard reply, but wanting to apologize for disturbing their Christmas with a picture of myself, I wrote back with: Oh alright, I'm sorry! Merry Christmas anyway! I figured that would be the end of it, but a few minutes later I received this sweet reply: Oh it's fine, just want to make sure that Aunt P. gets her thank you. Merry Christmas to you all too! So, to the random person who now has a picture of me in a jacket, thank you for making me smile, and for being so considerate as to make sure that Aunt P. gets thanks where thanks is due.

We are a bunch of lazy old people around here and nobody even got up until 8:30 this morning. It was wonderful. Since we are having our gift exchange on Saturday with J. & A. we just had stockings this morning. Well, I say "just", but Mom always does more than she should. One of my greatest simple joys was discovering the new plaid pajama pants had pockets... I will be wearing them everywhere now.

No, I don't have three legs - we all got a pair

Mom handed me a gift & told me she got me a "tablet"... 
for two seconds I thought it was real *sigh*

How was your Christmas?
