Last week, the postman delivered a lovely surprise from the team at Warner Bros. The box was a little battered and bruised from the long journey to the Scottish Mum Family up in Aberdeen. I left it sitting until the boys came home from school, as it was addressed to us all as a family.
When my mini people arrived home, the first thing they came across was the box. There was much excitement and bright lit up eyes about what could possibly be in it for them.
They opened the box, and what was in side was delightful. A gorgeous hessian sack, tied with ribbon and with a jingly bell attached. Lifting the sack up gave the jingle jangle that signalled christmas had made it early to the Scottish Mum household with the first seasonally wrapped pressie to hit our home.
Inside was a collection of lovely DVD’s for us to watch. They pulled them out. Some of the DVD’s were Yogi’s First Christmas, Polar Express, Scooby-Doo and the Lake Monster, Bugs Bunny Christmas Tales, Happy Feet, Yogi Bear, Ben 10, How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
At first, I thought they might think the films were too young for them, but they have been happily working their way through them and discovering some old favourites. It just goes to show that you never get too old for a good old cosy up on a cold night and putting on a good family film.
The gorgeous Scooby Doo Mystery Machine seemed to be simply a toy car, but on closer inspection, it turned out to also be a holder for all 41 episodes of Scooby Doo in a Limited-Edition Deluxe Set. They also included 2 bonus live action movies and 4 episodes of the new Scooby-Doo Mystery Inc, Show.
It was a gorgeous gift and considering I was expecting to just see Polar Express arriving, it was a very welcome and unexpected surprise.
Thank you very much Warner Bros.
