Yesterday Anna and I visited Era and her family. We've been friends with Era since High School (a loooooooooooooooong time) and have seen her go from a single girl, to a married girl, and now a mother of two. We are sort of two adopted aunts, living far away and seeing our "niece" and "nephew" twice a year when we are in Seattle to visit our family.
Back to the present: a few years ago, when Era only had a little girl, we came over and brought a stuffed snowman from Hallmark. Turns out L, Era's and Art's daughter, really loved the little toy. In fact, she loves it so much, Era had to buy 4 extra ones, just so that L is never without one. I can't recall ever giving a present someone liked more. Not sure if I'll ever be able to top it.
I just spent about 20 minutes trying to find the snowman on Google, but no such luck.
