My family and I survived our first Christmas without Amber with us. Of course she was here with us in spirit.
My husband and I had decided to not get each other gifts for Christmas so we did not purchase a thing for each other. Jennifer also agreed to not get us anything either. However on Christmas Eve Jennifer came home bearing gifts. I told her she broke the rules and quickly responded that she did not...the gifts were from Amber. Jennifer had written a message in a sweet Christmas card how Amber told her what to buy and she would want us to have the gifts for Christmas. The gifts were exactly what Amber would have given me! Jennifer knew Amber so well : )
This is what Amber bought me...Jim Shore figurines with a sewing theme. Amber always shopped for anything sewing related for me. These are adorable with their needle and thread and the thimble hat. Look at the cat sitting in her lap on the ball of yarn. Too cute!
And of course I love my bunnies! These ceramic bunnies are reading their books. Amber loved to read. One bunny has his magnifying glass out reading like I sometimes have to do these days. The other bunny has it's feet together. So sweet!
Jennifer also included other things I adore. I cried and cried when I realized what Jennifer had done for Amber. Such sweet sister love! Jennifer said Amber was with her as she did her Christmas shopping.
Jennifer, I know you read my blog and I love you! Thank you for shopping for Amber this year! How sweet and thoughtful! You were always a good "Sissy".
