An early visit from you know who....

I had just settled into bed with a good movie playing, "The Holiday". It was early (7:30 p.m.), but the kids had crashed and Lover Boy and I decided to take advantage of that and head to bed too. Just then he got up and said we had a visitor. He saw taillights out our bedroom window so he peaked and saw some people. We were both surprised at why specific people would be at our house.
Then there was a loud knock on the back door. I ran to open it and was greeted with a "HOHOHO!" When I tried to invite this person in, they denied and said to grab some shoes and Lover Boy. We were both very curious at this point.
When we made it up the stairs to head outside, a few "elves" were at the back door on their way into the house with arms full of food and diapers! Tears filled my eyes. How on earth am I so lucky and fortunate to always be taken care of.

I forced the tears back, swallowed the lump in my throat and just wanted to be happy smiling. Load after load was carried into our kitchen. After "Santa" and his "Elves" left, Lover Boy and I stood there in complete amazement for at least 5 exaggeration. Lover Boy asked why these wonderful people would do such a thing for us. The only explanation I could come up with is LOVE. Love is what Christmas is truly all about. How blessed we are to be so loved!!
We left everything right where it was so that Little Princess could see this amazing blessing when she woke up. So when I woke her up this morning I told her to run upstairs and look in the kitchen. She got so excited and had to ask what for. Of course I told her she just would have to find out for herself. So she went upstairs full of excitement and as soon as she reached the kitchen she stared to giggle. I asked her what she thought. First thing she said was that the diapers were for the baby. Her face a wide smile that reached from ear to ear. Then Lover Boy and I asked her who brought this to us. She smiled and said "Santa did".
All day she has been referring to it as her Christmas gift from Santa. Even a little 3 year old was so excited for this heap of food.
Thank you so much for removing a little stress from our lives and replacing it with so much excitement and love.
