delivery


Last Friday my husband had an engine for his truck delivered to the house.
It wasn't just any normal Fex Ex truck that delivered it, but a larger truck complete with a hydraulic lift on the back. At some point my daughter, who is 4, excitedly said,

"I hope it's FABRIC!"

wouldn't that be awesome! My husband had an engine for his truck delivered last year, so I know the type of truck you are referring to. I think I'd get in trouble for a fabric purchase that had to be delivered in a special truck!

Fed-Ex must have stopped by before with a delivery...yes? It stopped by my place today - no hydraulic lift.

That was hilarious! Kids are so funny. :)

Cheryl said...

Amanda Jean, I had a long day today and just as I was about to shut down my computer for the evening, I stopped by your blog and read this post. Thanks for the best laugh i had all day. Out of the mouths of babes. She is a future quilter, sewer, I can see it. She is four and hoping for fabric. Too adoreable.
