Mom helped me unwrap it, then I took a look.
|"Oooooh! It's so beautiful!"|
Can you see it? It's a coaster from the Wendell August place!
|"It reads 'For All Who Served - United States of America'. Oh, I love this!!!"|
|"Is this not the most beautiful gift?!?!"|
Let me have Mom go in for a close-up:

While Mom took another photo of it, Cam came over and we both admired it:
|"I can't believe Frankie and Ernie sent this! They are SO thoughtful!"|
"Dad's going to LOVE this! We should share with him."
Frankie and Ernie wrote a very nice note that was enclosed with the gift. They said that when they saw it, they thought about our Veterans Day and Memorial Day posts. They understand just how much our veterans mean to us - especially our favorite veteran -- our dad!!!
|"This is so very special!"|
"Oh, it is, Cammie! It really is!"
We were very gentle with it.
|"Don't get nose smudgies on it, Maggie."|
"OK. What if I just nibble the wrapping paper a little bit?"
This means so very much to us!
|"Thank you, Frankie and Ernie!!!"|
"Thank you from our mom and dad, too!"
