When I was given the gift of an invitation to the Hallmark party (love you Melisa), I did a happy dance, called my mom and we both squealed with delight!!!
It was way more than I imagined!
Hallmark had taken the top floor suite of the Buckingham Hotel and transformed it into Christmas.
We were greeted with peppermint drinks (mmm, tasty!) and Christmas music!

Then when we went upstairs, Melisa squealed because it was more purply and there was a Menorah.

How great is that for grandparents to record their voice reading a story and then sending it to their grandchildren? What a gift! They also said that a lot of military families use these books, too. Just a great idea in general. I can't wait to get one of my own!
Melisa and I spent a lot of time on the patio, just enjoying.....everything.
We were resourceFULL (getting food and a drink and commandeering the couch), we were definitely cheerFULL and totally thankFULL that Hallmark had given us an early Christmas/Hannukah gift by inviting us to their party.
Thank you, Hallmark!!!
