Day 12

February 12th. Officially, there are only two days left in the swap, but I have yet to receive the gifts for days 9 and 10 from Linda and Fiona, so I can stretch it out a little longer!

Today was day 12, and what treat was waiting for me. I made the boys do their morning chores, and complete their Math before I opened this gift. They've been as keen on the surprises as I have! And what a great way to motivate them. LOL We all held our breath as we s-l-o-w-l-y opened Liz's present that has come all the way from England. Oh, it's a lovely Valentine of the highest order. I am sure the Queen of Canada would approve.

Seriously, I wanted to have a "London Fog" drink to celebrate! (Do you have those in England, or in the U.S. of A.??) mmmmmm...If you've never tried one go directly to your nearest coffee shop and order one. It's Earl Grey Tea, steeped well, and topped with frothy, steamed milk and a shot of Vanilla. Yum! I want another one!

Thank you Liz! Beautiful details!
