A few months ago Gogurt decided to write a letter to Eli Manning and the New York Giants. He diligently checked the mail for days upon days in hopes that Eli had written him back. But no such luck.......until today!!!!!!
I checked the mail, saw what was there, and stuck it right back in the box. I wanted Gogurt to find it himself. So when he got home from school, I casually asked him to get the mail for me. We were at the doors and windows watching his response. What you cannot see in this picture is him jumping up and down with pure, unbridled excitement.
I can honestly say he has never been that excited over any gift, even on Christmas morning. Santa Claus has nothing on Eli.
Inside that beloved brown envelope was a letter from Eli (not handwritten, but still), some autographed photos, a NYG sticker, and a refrigerator magnet photo frame. Pretty cool, huh? Gogurt sure thought so. He immediately wanted to frame the letter (it is now sitting on our mantle for everyone to admire) and he then plastered the NYG sticker straight on the door to his room. That'll be fun trying to get off one day.
Thanks to the Giants organization for making my son's day!
Now on a completely different subject, the four of us plus my in-laws are getting up at the crack of dawn (okay, 6:30) to drive an hour to my hometown to be in a 1-mile fun run.
That is, if the rain holds off.
Then we will stay and enjoy downtown and their arts & crafts festival, watch my niece play in the jazz band, and probably eat lots of unhealthy food 'cuz that's what you are supposed to do after running/walking/strolling a mile, right?
Oh, and by the way, if you didn't notice, we have a new camera!! Thanks to a couple of very special people for helping us out with that! You know who you are!
