presents from dadda

David brought us some cool presents when he came back from New York City.  He gave me this shirt, jewelry, and card.


I like these bracelets so much.  The longer one can also be worn as a necklace.  I love the combination of rawhide, green stones, and brushed metal.  David is pretty awesome at picking out things I like.


He wrote me such a sweet card I started crying when I read it, hehee.


I also got this very cool watermelon red shirt.


I pretend I’m Martina Hingis in it. (She struck up a conversation with David in a restaurant, and he didn’t even know it was her, haha.)


Dadda brought U.S Open tennis balls and teddy bears for the kids.



The balls are huge!


He brought sheet metal kits to build miniscule 3-D structures of the Brooklyn Bridge, Empire State Building, and World Trade Center.


They are really cool.  Caleb said after building these he ought to be a pretty good surgeon.


I probably should have let the kids build the 3-D puzzle of the Statue of Liberty, but once I picked it up, it was just too interesting to put down.  I put it together while Cash and Zia took a bath.



They loved it when it was finished.


David also got a shirt for Zia, a pin for Caleb, 2 Lego race car kits, and a box of cookies from his favorite Italian bakery in NYC.  Everything he got was so sweet and awesome.  Still, it all pales in comparison to just having him home.  I think we’d all agree–having Dadda home is the best present of all.  🙂
