I was right! They loved their ornaments. It's hard to see the ornaments in the picture. I wish I had taken a close up of the ornament itself.
The Minnis's gave my daddy a nice shirt. Noelle and Cale watched him open it. They gave my mother a gift card from LifeWay Book Store. They both liked their gifts.
Kathy could hardly wait for Scot to open his gift from them. She bought him A Look at Life From A Deer Stand Devotional. The author Steve Chapman signed the book to Scot. He has kept this book beside the recliner and I've seen him reading it quite a bit. They gave Noelle a gift card from Ulta, a new store in the mall that is a girl's dream store. They have all kinds of make up, fragrances, hair and bath products...like I said, a girl's dream store! Cale received a gift card from Dick's store, which is a store in the mall that has everything you need from hunting and fishing to exercising, running, tennis, etc. Scot and Cale love to shop in Dick's!
After we exchanged gifts, we enjoyed coconut pie, banana nut bread, tea cakes, coffee, tea, and cola's. We sat around the table and talked for quite a while. David, Kathy, and Josh are very special to us. I have blogged about them many times before, but once again, I have to say that they are the closest thing to a sister, brother in law, and nephew I'll ever have in this life. Thirty years ago this summer, God allowed mine and Kathy's paths to cross and I will forever be thankful for such a treasure as our friendship.
