The Newbies are the Greatest

It was September 11, and I was down in the dumps for a lot of different reasons, including the fact that it was 9/11. I saw the mailman drive past my mailbox and up to my front door. I assumed he must have a package for me, but I also knew that I hadn't ordered anything, so I was surprised. He handed me this HUGE box.
This is the box--------------------->.

The return address said, "Newbies."

I was overwhelmed, and I started to cry.

There was a pink bag for Pixie.

There were 3 boxes addressed to
and me.

By this time I was sobbing. What an amazing group of online friends I have in the Newbies from Wet Canvas. Thank you so much my dear friends:
Maggie, Trish, Paula, Gwen, Tami, Louise, Karen, Sueze, Samma, Debra, Diane, and if I missed someone, I'm so sorry! I'm crying again! I love you all!

Oh, and Pixie says Thank you, too! She's already had a treat from her bag, and she loves the toy!

Jenny and Nick will be home on Friday so we can all celebrate Jenny's birthday together and go to a wedding. They will get their packages then. Thank you!
