the case of the missing Christmas present

As a youth I devoured mysteries. I loved Boxcar Children, Trixie Belden, Encyclopedia Brown, Nancy Drew, and The Hardy Boys. I read them all!

You'd think I would have picked up a hint or two on how to solve my own mystery but alas...what I really need is my own personal Encyclopedia Brown.

I helped Alec buy a Christmas present for McKayla. I remember that much. I even remember exactly what it was. What I don't remember is where I hid it. It is a small item and I have looked in all my usual hiding spots - dresser drawers, closet, under my bed...Nothing. Zip. Nada. I even went so far as to clean out my closet. Still zilch. Closet looks good though.

I've never experienced a completely lost present before. I'm not liking the sensation. Where is Nancy when I need her?


  1. Hi Marvelle,
    Wishing you and your family a very happy Holiday season!

  2. I loved all those books, too! We soent a good portion of Christmas Day looking for a card from my brother-in-law that was for my MIL and contained a gift card. We even dumped out all the trash! It was finally discovered in the utensil drawer in the kitchen. Good luck with your might want to check the fridge.
