Christmas came early for our house this year, and it keeps on going.
We actually got the best gift of all back on Black Friday. A brand new washer and dryer!
Some of you may think that appliances sound like a totally boring gift, but I am all about those practical things that I need. We have been trekking back and forth from the laundromat since April, and while it's nice to get all your loads done at once, there is nothing worse than having to lug laundry around during the cold, snowy, yucky months. It is inevitable that one of your clean pairs of undies will fall right out of the dryer and into the brown slop on the floor in the laundromat. Truly tragic.
So as Christmas approached and we learned that our parents were interested in helping us buy a washer/dryer for Christmas, I could not have been giddier. We scouted out the Home Depot sales, read all of the reviews and consumer reports, and settled on a set of Whirlpool Cabrios. It is a top loading washer, but still high efficiency.
At the beginning of December, our beauties came home.
It truly was an even for the whole family. Our little snoops both took turns watching the delivery out the window.
|Bucky stayed in the doorway long enough that some neighbor kids came to visit him.|
|So naturally Stella needed to know what was going on too.|
|Are you here for us too?|
|Everyone gets a washer/dryer!|
I have a load in as we speak.
To our family, thank you for contributing to the best gift of all. We would have been saving for quite awhile longer without your help. And likely would have had a few tragedies at the laundromat this winter.
