My wonderful gift

Yes most girls want diamonds or new clothes.LoL.. I wanted this possum belly.Hubby gave me this Christmas Eve. Since I've collected prims I've wanted a possum belly and this one is just a lovely antique beauty. For those that don't know they call it a possum belly because of the rounded drawers on the bottom.It has 2 bread boards that slide out as well... Gotta tell you a funny story about Hannah. My cousin is in his 20's and ask her what Santa brought her.She told him all the wonderful gifts she got.He smiles and says "So you still believe in Santa?" Hannah replies "No I just didn't know if you did" They found out a few months ago about Santa is really MeeMe.(but they did go see santa)We had a nice Christmas at Grandma's old farm house. New Years not much planned.I'll be up but I'm sure hubs will be a sleep by 9 LoL. On another note one of our blog friends is really struggling with health and I thought it would be nice to send her cards and let her know we care.It would be for Margie Hungry Hook Primitives Blog.If you'd like her address email me and I'll send it to you I don't want to post it publicly. Warm Blessings!~Amy
