A Birthday Pressie from Reilly and Denny

The mailman delivered a birthday pressie for mom and me yesterday!   The package is from Reilly and and his new little brother, Denny!
 Look at the most beautiful birthday card that Reilly sent me!  His mom, Bree, made it!  I think it's just so special!
 MOOZLES!!!!!  OMG, we haven't had one of these in FOREVER!  Thank you, Reilly!  He even sent one for you, Mitch!  What a thoughtful friend!
 Reilly's mom also sent our mom packages of her beautiful handmade cards.  They are just fabulous!
Each and every one of them is a work of art! So much planning and creativity and time goes into each and every one of them!  They are just amazing!
 This is mom's birthday card.  Isn't it wonderful!  Mom says that it will be treasured forever and ever.  Those are red silk flowers and leaves and butterflies applied to the front of the card.   It's gorgeous!
 Bree also sent mom an art journal.  It's like a scrapbook with tons of soft worn antique paper pages.  You can jot down thoughts and ideas, add photos, newspaper clippings - whatever memory is important that you always want to have a record of!
If you go to Bree's blog she has a video of how to make your art art journal so you can see it for yourself.  It's a "must have"!
 Reilly and Denny also sent us bully sticks!   You guys have totally out done yourselves!   
Please open the wrapper for us NOW, mom!
 When mom saw this next gift she got all teary-eyed.  It's a handmade "book" of our blog!  There aren't any pages - it's just a front cover and a back cover but it's ME and Mitch~
 And check out the spine of the "book".  It says Maggie and Mitch!  Isn't it just perfect!
 We are just totally overwhelmed by Bree and Reilly and Denny's thoughtfulness and generosity!  What a wonderful birthday surprise for me and mom!
Thank you so very, very much!  You guys are the BEST!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Sue and Mitch too
