And What To My Wondering Eyes Do Appear?

So yesterday, I was just sitting here pondering my evening when, all of a sudden, in comes a package aaaaall for me. It was from my sweet friend Missy who gives gifts like none other on this planet, and let me tell you why.....When I opened the blessed box, this is one of the things that it contained:

Y'all.
No seriously....Y'all. This stuff is so mind-bogglingly good that I am gonna go there...yes. I. am. It is better than anything I have had at Starbucks...gasp...YES! I said it!! It's true. And I would never-ever lie about that (because I have no desire to commit the unpardonable sin....even though I am borderline heretical at this point, I realize). I am on my third glorious cup right this minute (I will probably be up until Christmas at this rate, but it's THAT worth it).
I also got this hilariously cute ornament:

When I opened the package and pulled her out, Julianna covered her mouth as she beheld her and said "OH MOMMA! She is beautiful..." LOL! So now she is front and center on our Christmas tree in all her glory.
By the way, don't mind my hair. I am not lovin it right now, but I could not let some of you go on thinking that I had as much facial hair as my last picture indicated....yes, I said "as much" ;) . Gotta love these genes, especially when mixed with a little age. Oy vey.

Gayle,
How wonderful of Missy. She is a sweetheart. You and Juliana are much cuter in this picture than your last one. The elf pictures had me in fits of laughter.

What's wrong with facial hair on a woman? *just kidding!*

You are beautiful. I was just thinking that i liked your hair when I read your comment about it. It is shorter that your profile pic, isn't it? Looks nice. Glad you enjoyed your gift.

not to be redundant here...but you're a knockout!

I could use some makeup tips...I go without and the older I get, the more I'm seeing the error of my ways!
