Gifts from Canada

Yayy! My brother just came back from Canada today, after visiting Alberta for five days with the Waltonians, and then going to Vancouver to stay with Allie and Pius for two weeks!

I was psyched, couldn't wait to see what he got me from there. Yup! I totally didn't miss him at all, I just wanted my souvenirs!

LOL! Just joking! ;P

But seriously, other than missing him, I was really excited to see what he got me, coz before he boarded the plane to come home, he sms-ed us and said I'd be really happy to see what he got for me. And Allie had also given him a book to pass to me, and we all know I'm a sucker for books. =P

We got there early, so I passed the time reading and singing along to the radio. But I'll so totally remember my brother's face when he saw us at the arrival gates. He was sooooo happy! And so glad to be home. And then he said again, Betty's gonna be so happy when she sees what I have for her. =D

Soooooooo....without keeping you guys in suspense anymore. Here are the pictures! =D

On the way to pick up bro from the airport!

Me in the backseat

The maple syrup he brought back for us! Yummy! And...

My absolute favourite maple syrup cookies!!!! Delicious!

This T-shirt from Edmonton, which is a lot cooler and more original than one which says, "My brother went to Edmonton and all he got me was this lousy T-shirt." LOL! =D

And this is from my Aunt in Vancouver, an Abercrombie tee that I really really adore! Thanks, Aunt Alice! Muah!

Eat your heart out, American Idol fans! I'm gonna have so much fun with this. Wheeeee!! =D

A namecard holder, a keychain, and a pen for the office. And finally...

From Allison, The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards. There's a post-it inside from her that says:

Hello Dear Cousin!

.....this book is the current best seller in North America so I hope you
enjoy it!

Love, Allie

I'm sooooo happy!!!!! I love receiving gifts! And it's not even my birthday yet! =D
