Cam and I were just kicking back after lunch yesterday when Mom made the announcement: "There are boxes on the front porch!"
Yep, I was excited. I mean - boxes! How cool! Here's how it all went down!
|"It's from Georgia! From Aunt Shelli, Uncle Jeremy, little Cora, and Cornelia Marie!!! And it's for all four of us!!!"|
"Wait. I can't fit in here!!!"
Then I remembered Mom said there were boxes. Plural! I knew Aunt Shelli wouldn't let me down! Cam called me into the other room.
|"Maggie! Maggie, come in here!"|
Mom said before we did anything else, we needed to text a big THANK YOU picture to Aunt Shelli! We posed nicely:
|"Thank you, Aunt Shelli! And Uncle Jeremy!"|
"And little C-Ro! And CM!!!"
Mom was pleased with our pose - then said we could check out the box.
|"Oh, my peachy goodness!!!"|
"What are these things in the box, Cam? They smell heavenly!"
Cam said she is very familiar with them and proceeded to fill me in.
|"This, my little one, is a Georgia peach! It's one of the sweetest, juiciest, tastiest fruits God blessed us with!"|
"Really? Better than pears and cantaloupe?"
She said yes, then she and Mom encouraged me to give it a gentle sniff.
|"It's fuzzy, Cam! And ooooooh, does that smell good!"|
"Wait 'til you taste one!"
Mom took the peaches into to the kitchen to wash them and ... well ...
|"YAY!!! A BOX!!! THANKS, Aunt Shelli!!!"|
It was just PERFECT, don't you ... oh. Right. My tail. Hang on.
|"Get in the box, tail! Don't make me chase you!"|
|"NOW it's perfect!!!"|
After I played in my box for a while, Mom said we could all taste one of the peaches!
|"You have my complete, undivided attention."|
That peach was everything Cam said it would be - a sweet, juicy delight! I liked it quite possibly more than the box. Maybe. I mean - for those of you who know how much I like boxes, you'll understand that's a LOT!!! Mom and Dad said it was the best peach they've had in years!
Thank you, thank you to Aunt Shelli, Uncle Jeremy, Cora, and my sister CM!
