~Our Christmas in May!~

~When Luann wrote me that she, Kara, and Bethany had their tickets to come and see us, I asked her if we could order our kids' schoolwork for next year, and if they would bring it for us. 
She said SURE and then wrote me an email that said, "FOR HEATHER ONLY!"
In that email she said they would like to bring some things for our children and asked what were some of the things they needed.
So I sent her a list and she said they had fun shopping! (and when we saw all the FUN Gifts we can TELL they did! :-)
I kept her secret and our kids didn't know they were getting goodies from "Aunt" Luann and her family!~
~Here's Mary with some of the treasures that A. Luann brought our family!~
~Some nice shirts for the boys, and sweet blouses for Mary and Abigail.  ~
~Some new shoes for Abigail.~
~A new ball glove for Noah!
HE'S THRILLED!
He REALLY wanted a glove so he could be practicing ball here so he can play with his friends back home in the U.S.A. later.~
~Some new dressy shoes!~
~And Kara and Bethany got matching Hoodies for themselves and our girls. Kimberly and Sarah Love them!~
~Some yummy candy from A. Luann and family!~
~Fun pencils and erasers.~
~Noah had saved his Christmas money so he bought himself some Toe Shoes and Aunt Luann brought them to him.~
~Kara and Bethany got these cute mini bobby pins for Kimberly and Sarah.~
~Abigail's new collection of shoes! :-) ~
~Aren't these so cute?!~
~And a baby doll for Mary, and some FUN sand for our kids to play with.~
~Some tea tree and lavendar oils we requested.~
~Luann brought 3 fun skirts for our dear little friend Valen!~
 ~And A. Luann provided the candy that made the Choc. Graduation caps for Elijah and Mary's Kindergarten graduation!  DELISH!~
~And she brought us some blue berry jello for 4th of July recipes!~
THANK YOU, LUANN, for ALL the NICE AND FUN GOODIES y'all brought us!! 
MAY GOD RICHLY BLESS YOU FOR YOUR KINDNESS TO US AND FOR LUGGING ALL THESE GOODIES (and our school work) HERE!! :-)
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ 
Then about 2 weeks before Luann was coming, a dear friend (who prefers to remain anonymous :-) emailed me and told me that her family would like to get some goodies for our family, and they asked me for a list.
Our family had FUN thinking of what we wanted to put on our WISH list! :-)
Luann brought This friend Gifts to our family and here's pics of mostly everything they sent!
What FUN things! 
WITH ALL THAT LUANN GAVE US AND MY OTHER FRIEND...WE ARE FEELING VERY LOVED!!! :-)
~These adorable Tennis Shoes for little Mary!~
~And some fun girly LEGOS for Mary!~
 ~What Fun!~
 ~Elijah and Mary enjoying their new toys! ~
 ~And these FUN Black boots for Mary...and a beautiful scarf (which I adopted! But K and S can wear it anytime they want! :-) ~
~Here's Kara and our little Mary in a new dress from Dear A. Luann, and Mary wearing her new black boots from the other Dear friend!~
~Some of the fun clothes they sent!~
~They sent 4 Great matching shirts for Elijah and Noah.  ~

~Two different boxes of LEGOS for Noah...~
~And for Elijah!  The Boys think their gifts are AWESOME!!
~These cute white dressy shoes for baby Abigail!~

~And these for Sarah!  Sarah loves anything miniature!  So when she saw these Calico Critters she thought they were so CUTE!
The NEAT THING IS...she REALLY WANTED the Koala Family...but just put down "Calico Critters" on the WISH LIST and knew she'd be happy with anything they got her!
She was THRILLED that she NOT ONLY GOT THE KOALA FAMILY, but the fun ice cream truck (with miniature ice cream fixings),...PLUS They sent her...

 ~The fun hedge hog baby twins AND the cute bunk bed!~
 ~So Fun!~
~This adorable jean skirt for me to wear boots with!~
~They got these nice purses for Sarah and Kimberly!  They love them and carry them all the time!~
~And my Dear found out that I didn't have a CrockPot (and as far as my friend Caro could find they don't even sell CrockPots here in Bs. As.), so my friend bought me this NICE CrockPot which is wired for 220 electric like we have here.~
~I am THRILLED to have this crock pot!  It came just in time to use it for Elijah and Mary's graduation and for the Fall weather we are having now! :-) ~
THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR ALLLLL YOUR FAMILY GAVE TO US!!!

Have mercy, I know ALL of these fun and useful gifts brought joy to your hearts! How very sweet that God's dear children lavished such energy, money, and love upon you faithful missionaries! This just touches my heart! Every cute pair of shoes, every piece of fun and nice clothing, every single toy for the children, the luxury of the different types of candy, the sand to play with, the baseball glove, the hoodies, and on and on...there was given such a variety of special treats for you all to enjoy. What a bounty of kindness was heaped upon your heads. Our beautiful King Jesus has people in his kingdom that have no comparison upon this earth! I just love his people! Love, Mom D
