A Gift From an Angel

A bit of history is involved in these pictures. David's (past) aunt, Terry traveled to California 42 years ago. She brought back David's brother, Ed (who was nine years old at the time) a blue and black Chinese silk set. Ed never wore the set yet David's mom held onto the set - a reminder of her sister and a gift she had given. Along came Madeline and David's mom decided to pass along the set, not knowing whether or not we would find a use for it. I can't tell you how many times Madeline pulls out the set. Aside from wearing the pants on her head (she pretends its long black hair), Madeline likes to wear them around the house as lounge-wear. She must like the feel of the silk. Below is some video footage....

Cute video! I'm glad to hear Madeline's first day of preschool went well. I remember Tyler's first day of preschool, and I couldn't relax the whole two hours. It does get easier though. It sounded like you had a great Christmas. I also read the book The Secret Life of Bees. I think I will trust your review and not go to the movie. Thanks for the scoop!
