I sent Christmas gifts to the little kindergarten niece and the baby nephew via Amazon. My brother snapped a pic of Nephew's gift tag, Niece had added her name in marker on the From tag in addition to her aunt and uncle!

Wandering through old documents on the 'puter...found this by my Sister PrincessDee63, I'm the "South Paw Aunt"...

Loopy Lessons

For each small boy a different muse,
For learning how to tie his shoes.

A south paw Aunt for # 1,
Left hand loops are always fun.

Two loops tied and then a knot,
Grandpa's way son 2 was taught.

Loops, and wraps, and tucks, and pulls,
The smallest learned that Mom's way rules.

Big hands teach and small hands learn,
When they grow up it will be their turn.

By By, Love you,

My house sleepers torn just a day before Chrismas. My little daughter told me, "Mamma, take me to a shoe store and I will buy you a sleepers". I took her to a nearby shoe store that evening, she select a beautiful 'Cinderella' type transparent sleepers (one that is too beautiful for compared to my dark complexion ) and I bought that. After returning home she told me " Mamma, tomorrow is Christ mas and this is my Christmas gift for you". Tears of joy rolled from my eyes, I hugged her, kissed her and told her, " this is the most beautiful christmas gift I ever got".

With this statement, "one that is too beautiful for compared to my dark complexion," do you mean that they are beautiful and complement your dark complexion or do you actually think they are too beautiful for your dark complexion? I'm hoping I'm misunderstanding what you wrote. I really hope you don't believe any color is too beautiful for you. There may be colors that don't complement your complexion or accent it, but they are not too beautiful for you. Everyone has colors that don't complement their skin tone. No matter how dark or light your complexion, you're beautiful, as beautiful as any color and certainly as beautiful as any pair of sleepers. I hope you know that.

Thank you. I really have to think before wearing any color, because so many color don't match with my complexion.

My DH and my daughter are too fair so I look more dark beside them and here tell me how could he (my DH) marry you? My DH also says skin color doesn't matter.
