the joys of video chat

On Friday, I got to watch Abbey open her birthday present (a few weeks late...) from Buck, Christine and me in real time...while Abbey sat in Kentucky and I sat in New York. Technology is pretty amazing, and I think the gift was a hit! There was pure ecstasy on this little girl's face when she realized what was actually inside the glitter-sparkle Hello Kitty suitcase: lipgloss, fingernail polish, and mirrors!
