Which is what happens when you celebrate three Christmas across several days.
It takes a while to digest all that Noel.
But there was a particular presentation over the Christmas season that was awfully special.
Except it wasn't awful.
Why do we say that? Awfully? When we mean wonderfully?
Seems like Judy Garland said it a lot in The Wizard of Oz.
I know, I know, more tangents.
I never claimed that my mind was a particularly neat and tidy place.
Back to the awfully wonderfully presentation.
My grandmother, in all over her over-90-and-still-sassy glory has been collecting quarters of all the states for her great-grandchildren.
All fifteen of them.
She presented all the kids with a whole collection of the 50 states quarters, along with an original mint quarter and an additional quarter of the state of their birth.
This is a gift five years in the collecting and making...
The kids were completely delighted and are occasionally allowed to look at their collections.
I don't know why 8 of 8 dodged being in the 'States Quarters' photo-op. My newest niece has a valid excuse...she's still in utero.
I should probably check 8 of 8's collection, come to think of it. He may have been off looking for a vending machine.
