Gifts for Mom

Some of you, who have followed my blog, know that my Mom is living at our house because of an illness.
I have some wonderful, dear, sweet, loving friends who have not only been a friend to me, but have also become wonderful friends to my Mom.
One of my dearest friends, Debbie. made this warm, fleece,
cupcake blanket for my Mom.
She is always cold these days, so it has been used everyday!
The bonus is that it matches my house perfectly! :)
Debbie and her husband, Gentleman Farmer Paul, have chickens.
So, we also received these BEAUTIFUL green and brown eggs
straight from their back yard.

And, one more amazing gift was given-

Honey from their beehives!

Are these people amazing?
This honey is coveted by many, and we got a jar!

So, the blanket is used everyday-

The eggs have been eaten-

And, the honey is on her toast every morning.

Check out her face-
Do you think that she likes her gifts?
