Coin You Feel the Love?

I'm still working on my Christmas recaps.

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.

Moving on.

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...

I know.

Totally adorable.

Awfully adorable.

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.
