Oh' Viv, how blessed you've been this week. That was adorably sweet of Scarlett. What a thoughtful person she is already. And that precious box Nataleas sent is precious. I love that Bride of Frankenstien that kelly sent along with that gorgeous card and everything else. And you know how we all covet E's creations. That doll theater is awesome. I've never seen one. Cindy's birds and the whole box of themed goodies was lovely. I know it all just had to have made your birthday over the top.

Hope you have a blessed Sunday too.
Hugs...Tracy :)
