January was full of fun!
New Year's day Mattie May's first for the day was her first plane ride. Oh the fun! A few nerve's and a lot of excitement starting at 4:30 in the morning! We rode a shuttle from our hotel to DFW airport where we boarded the plane to Florida.
That was her second first for the day, going to Walt Disney World. Of course you can read about all that in my previous post starting with this one. I don't want to bore you any longer about that trip, but it has to be included in her first.
When we got back home, she got her first puppy. She had asked Santa for a puppy for Christmas and he delivered, sort of. Because of our trip, Santa didn't think it would be right to deliver a puppy only to have to find someone to care for it just a week later while we were gone to Florida. So he left her all she needed to care for a puppy and a letter in her stocking explaining that one of his elves in Abilene would be keeping it until we got home. And he delivered! We got Tramp on Sunday after our trip.
We ended January on a sad note. Mattie May attended her first visitation and funeral. My great aunt, Fonda Day, went on to her eternal life January 25. Mattie May did very good at both. You never know how children will react in situations like this. She even gave Granny a final good bye kiss and told her she would see her again some day. I just love that kid!
So on to February.
