Thank you SO much to Sylvia, Alan, Maddie, Wendy and Emma!!! The girls and I got an AWESOME box of goodies. As I type this, my mouth is full of the most delicious biscotti ever (homemade) and Allie and Riley each have a Hide-A-Squirrel junior in their mouths. We are insanely happy! I have tons of pics of the girls opening their gifts. Here are some of the girls with their new exciting toys:

Then there were even gifts for me! There were some paw print post-it notes, socks with paw prints on them, a travel mug (which is awesome because mine just broke) that says "All my children have paws" (so true!), and the best homemade biscotti around! Sylvia, you can send me more biscotti anytime you like!

Here are some more shots of the girls with their toys. They love everything, Sylvia, but I have to tell you that they are absolutely enamored with the hide-a-squirrel junior that Wendy and Emma sent. They have a big one already, but they love those tiny squirrels. They have not let them out of their sight since they opened them.

Dab, thanks sooooo much for posting pics of your girls with their gifts. I am so glad they like them. I'm also relieved that the biscotti made it as whole pieces, not crumbs.
Enjoy...maybe more biscotti later.

The biscotti looks so good! I second Linda's request to post the recipe! :wub: Also, those paw print socks are too cute!!!

Where would one fine this hide-a-squirrel thing? I've never seen one before! So cute though, especially with the little santa hats, LOL :LOL: great job Sylvia!
