We surprised her with a new camera. She had already received her "big" present before school started [in the way of contacts.] She had no idea she was getting anything on her actual day, today, because she knew that we paid a lot for the contacts and those were her present.
When she opened her present she cried, she was so shocked. Wallene never cries. We didn't mean for that to happen. We just wanted to surprise her.

She [just now] called me from the Smithsonian's National History Museum, all excited and giggly, to tell me she has taken 247 pictures. [Her's is not Momma's lame-o camera she used to borrow, let me tell ya.] This makes us very happy. To hear the joy in your kid's voice is the best - and this wasn't about the gift, it was about the museum. She found so many things to photograph.
[I am SO jealous - they saw Julia Child's kitchen. heehee]
I am a lucky, lucky woman. I have no doubt. Thank you for all the kind words on the last two posts. I need to concentrate on what we do have and not what we don't. I don't suppose some things are fair, but it is what it is - and I need to remember that life goes on and time will continue to march on. With or without a raise, with or without me - but as long as my kids and husband are healthy and happy then I am truly blessed.
I love you Wallene. So much more than you will ever know - and I know it isn't gifts that make your world go round, but I am glad that this one makes you so happy.
And girlie? NO, you can't take my picture. Now Scoot. Don't you have 1,325 pictures to take of Spot to add to the 379,419 that are already on my computer?
