My Anniversary Present!

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie!  Thank you SO MUCH, all of you, for the wonderful wishes yesterday on Adopt-a-Maggie Day.  What a wonderful day it was!  I wasn't sure what all the day would bring, but it started out GREAT with a walk, some cool weather, and Crazed River Otter Games.  After lunch, Dad said something about a FedEx delivery, and I heard Cam cry out, "It's here!"  WOW!  A surprise gift?!?  For me?!?

Dad and Mom brought it into the garage, then said Cam and I could come out.  I couldn't wait!

"Oh, CAM!!!  You shouldn't have!"
"I didn't think they'd just use clear wrapping paper ..."

Dad helped me unwrap it and got some stuff out of it - then let me have my present!  It was the biggest, the best box I've ever seen!  Check out how roomy it is:

"Hey!  All the neighbors can see my cool box!  Ha roo, everybody!"

Can you SEE all the space in there?!?  Plenty of room for anyone to join me - right?!?!  And then it finally happened!!!  It was what I'd been hoping for for so very long -- CAM BOXED WITH ME!!!

"Mom!  You've GOTTA get a picture of this!!!"
"I can't believe I'm doing this.  Only for you, Mags."

Now THAT'S an anniversary wish come true!  Cammie and me boxing.  WOW!!!

"Am I dreaming?"
"Happy anniversary, little one!!!"
"I'm getting choked up, Mom."
"One more photo, then I'm outta here."

It was so magical. So wonderful. It was the best box EVER!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher


  1. That is the best Gotcha Day Box we've ever seen. We hope you get to keep it for a while. Of course our pawrents are curious as to what your dad took out of it. Perhaps a bicycle or some other piece of large exercise equipment?

    Woos to you from us.
