Unexpected "gifts"

Christmas is often the season of giving - this year we received some unexpected gifts Christmas week. It started with Jason's friend, Graham, stopped after dark one night to drop off a Coconut Crab that he had grabbed while collecting Land Crabs. He suggested we cook the crab right up - and we did!

(I have a great photo with the crab, but for some reason, I haven't been able to upload ANY photos for the past 3 weeks ... Sad!)

A day later, we woke up to two wild, starving puppies hanging out outside of our house in our compost pile, gorging themselves on whatever they could find. Even though they are wild, we couldn't help but feel sorry for them and of course gave them some food. Now we have two miniature guard dogs watching our house. They aren't tame yet, but they still bark when people come down the driveway which is nice.

So, some pretty random gifts this holiday season. Thank you to Jamie, Jenny, Trudy, the Schlafmanns, Stormos, Swansons and Mom&Dad for sending us such incredible care packages! Your generosity is SO SO appreciated (and we haven't eaten ALL the food yet, just most of it!).
