Gifts from afar

One of my husbands colleagues was here last week for business from Taiwan. Apparently she wanted to gift him with something for our family. She has asked how old our kids were and guessed their sizes. She brought them shirts from the National History Museum in Taiwan. I have no idea what they say but appear to be either children in history or from various cultures. The kids loved getting a new shirt and modeled them right away.



This was a present to Mommy and Baby. The baby is being born in the year of the Tiger! What a fun gift as I hadn't really thought about this. I have this hanging over the crib. Wonder if this means my babe will have a strong personality like my other kids? I suppose so since he/she is taking such a long time to make an appearance. Grrrrr!!!!!

Here's a link to more info about people born in the year of the Tiger.

It makes for an interesting read much in the same way that horoscopes do, but take everything with a grain of salt. :)

How nice for her to come bearing gifts.

I was born in the year of the tiger. I never knew that until we went to a chinese restaurant that had all the animals and descriptions on their placemats.

I don't know that it is because I am tiger, but I do have a strong personality. :)

What a lovely gesture! Isn't it wonderful when someone does some unexpected kind act?
