A Little Piece of Home

12.18.2009

Yesterday I received a package from home. A box full of ornaments! And not just any ornaments, penguin ones! If I haven’t mentioned it before, penguins are my favorite animal. Not sure why. Well, kind of.

In second grade, my teacher, Mrs. Evans loved penguins. She decorated her classroom with penguins. She told stories with penguins (Hello, Tacky the Penguin!). And even did a unit about penguins. I started a penguin collection since then. Perhaps through brainwashing or osmosis?

Last Christmas, I told my mom that I wanted to have the penguin ornaments for my future tree. And trust me, we have a lot. While I wasn’t even sure if we were going to have a tree this year, (thanks Target!), when I told her we purchased a Christmas tree, she sent along a collection of penguin ornaments. Hooray!

Thanks, Mom!

I’m so excited because next week we go to home to my parents in California for Christmas! Yay! I’ve got a serious hankering for my family, my dogs, coastlines, and some In-N-Out. For serious.

Happy Holidays!

    Are you sure your mom sent those and not Lynh?

    I think you forgot to say that you’re excited to be reunited with the triplets, too.

    I think it’s time you came back to California. You know when I was a kid I read some story about how this guy had a penguin as a pet. I totally wanted one too.
