What a pretty gift from Jimmy's Aunt. I love the Christmas cups and saucers and your peppermint chocolate looked and sounded so festive. You be sure and pack those cups in with your "Frosty" when you come home. Sorry to slow in responding but this is Christmas and not the best time for GG to be ill. So glad that I could be there for her. Love, Moma
