Thankful for White

This must be the week to receive white boxes..can anything bad be connected to a white box? Well, I guess if it comes with 6 guys carrying it, it most likely won't make you smile. However, I received this white box from Jack on Friday and contained 12 things that made me smile. So on this lovely Sunday, with Thanksgiving just around the corner, I'll say how thankful I am for white boxes that come from friends on the internet, and a loving husband who knows how to make my day!
These are so pretty! I love the energy of fresh flowers and hope they last for awhile. Thanks Babe!
I love Lori Mitchell dolls. I don't know why, I just do. I love the skinny legs and the cute faces. There's a little shop near Jack's office that carries them. I always have to check in and see what's new. I found these little cuties. I was going to get the Christmas tree one last year but I had arrived too early and she hadn't priced them yet so I came back later..too later I guess because he was gone. So when I saw she had him again this year I grabbed him. His name is Bruce Spruce. Since I live at Whispering Pines, I thought he was needed here...and my hubby's middle name is Bruce. What can I say? It's kismet...(whatever that is). The Thanksgiving ones were so cute and they were the only ones she had, so I was suckered into buying them. I had no choice, no will power to say no...The shopkeeper knows me so well, she threw them at me and made me get them...That's my story and I'm sticking to it. This is a P.S. to my post. After posting this today, my Sister wrote on her blog. She doesn't post too often, but when she does she just makes me teary eyed and in awe of her writing ability. If you have the time go to my sidebar and hit on 2YaYas...it's worth the read.

Wow, cute! I've not seen these dolls around; but, I can see how they can be addictive.

I figured out why you love them so much!!! They remind you of CRAIG as a little kid!! Round face, skinny legs!!! HA!

Do you have a Nutcracker collection? Maybe it's because I'm a guy but that's the one thing I enjoy collecting.

I'm glad you got roses. I never get flowers...okay so I've gotten them twice in our 16 years of marriage. Neither time was when the kids were born...

A husband who buys roses for his wife is indeed a special guy - these are beautiful!

Your sister's post is lovely; thanks for telling us about it.

My sister is the same way yours is. She posts something about once every six months. But oh...

When she finally lets loose with one, it's worth it!

=)

The roses are gorgeous. Fresh flowers make my day too.

The decorations look cute. Will have to get ours out this weekend and get set up.

You have so much to be thankful for, and I think it is awesome to at least once a year remember all that we have been blessed with, the roses are stunning
