Possibly the best Christmas Present ever!

No, it is not Libby but she is hard to beat! I added my pictures backwards. Keep scrolling!

The cute Macbeth family and Libby's first tree!
Here is possibly the best Christmas present ever! Kinda a long story but so worth it. When we had to clean out my parents home I told my brothers and sister all I really wanted was this cute flocked cardboard Santa. My mom had bought it for 10 cents on their first Christmas she and my dad were married. It always sat beneath our Christmas tree and I loved it. Well, when we went through things at mom and dads the Santa was nowhere to be found. I was very sad because he meant so much to me. Today I got a present in the mail from my sister, Tammy, and found a duplicate Santa just like my childhood one. Tammy knew how much I loved that Santa and searched e-bay and found an exact (but slightly less loved) one. Bet she paid more than 10 cents but I love it and it will now have a place of honor under my tree. She did put in dibs for it if I die first! Thank you Tammy for one of my best gifts ever!!!!!
