Starting where we left off;
I went to get the little parting gift we got for Isabelle and returned to the bedroom. Harper, Hope and I gathered around to give it to her. We love giving presents......it's much more fun to give than receive!
Isabelle hopped up on the bed to open the box.....Harper could hardly contain her excitement! She loves to give presents! And, she was a bit anxious because she had suggested this particular gift.
"Go ahead Isabelle, open it, open it! If you don't do it NOW, Harper is going to faint!" I exclaimed.
Isabelle carefully opened the box to reveal a super adorbs pair of reindeer socks! She had admired a pair that I was wearing the other day so Harper felt sure that she'd love a pair for herself!
"Yipeeeeee! Oh, I absolutely LOVE these reindeer socks!! I especially love his red nose!!" Isabelle squealed. "Aren't these just like yours, Christina?" "Yes, they are! It was Harper's idea.....she remembered how much you liked mine the other day."
"Oh, Harper. I love these.....every time I wear them, I promise to think of you!" Harper blushed a little but deep down she was proud of herself for being able to give her new friend something that she knew she'd love. ♥
Just then and without warning - Isabelle jumped up and exclaimed "Let's take some selfies!!!! That way I'll always have photos of each of you and our fun times together!" We all agreed it was a superb idea!
I was first! Yay, me and Isabelle together!! Cool beans!!
Next up - Harper and Isabelle! Don't tell Harper but it's a bit out of focus.....however, it's still very sweet and Harper thought the "soft focus" made her look "glamorous!" She's so funny.
Then it was Hope and Frolics' turn.....and it was in that moment that I saw my opportunity to totally photo bomb them! Just as Hope was saying; "one.....two....three!" I jumped up on the bed behind them and waved!! Ohhhhh, I timed it perfectly!
"Christina!!!" Harper yelled at me from the other side of the room, "You totally photo bombed Hope and Isabelle's selfie and that is not nice!" It took me a minute to pull myself together and stop laughing so that I could say - "Sorry guys, I couldn't help myself.....it might not be nice but it sure is funny!!!!" Let me see the photo!
Isabelle spoke up to calm Harper down a bit.....and fortunately, she and Hope were giggling too! "Oh, sweet Harper, don't be upset with Christina. That's SO her to do those kinds of silly things! She is such a goofy girl. This photo will be a great reminder of just how much fun I have had here!" Isabelle said. "Now we need to go find the other girls... cause I need to say goodbye now. You know I am leaving and I cannot wait to meet the little girl who will love me forever!! I am super duper excited!"
