This year on Festibond we had a blizzard. We had a hard time driving around.
After breakfast we went to Staples to publish our Festibond booklets. Then we wrapped presents at home. We were prepared to bond.
I was amazed at Hayley’s letters. She put a lot of thought into them. I don’t know where she got her good ideas!
As we went through reading letters and exchanging gifts, the hugs and kisses were very loving and tight. I sure did like the look on Skye’s face when she opened the present from me to her. I gave her a small purple brush and a framed mirror I painted and decorated with a sea theme and Skye’s name. I was happy to see there were no frowns during the bond (of course), and all smiles instead!
After the bond came a snack of cheese and crackers and homemade sweets, including lemon bread, cookies and chocolate peanut butter bars.
As my family and I know, the letter tradition is a very important part of Festibond, so I think we shouldn’t change it for at least a decade. I look forward to the next Festibond.
