Queen Ginger LOVES presents, so she was SO excited that today finally arrived and she and King Tony got to open the presents that have been piled on her dining room table since the ball!!
The first present revealed was the present Queen Ginger presented to King Tony, which was a custom-made sash to wear at "state obligations". Queen G made them by hand, and as you can see in this photo, Prince Jackson found them quite cozy!
As the gifts were presented, Queen Kaylynn, QOXXXVIII assumed the role of Royal Scribe and recorded the gifts and their generous donors so appropriate thank yous can be penned and posted!
There were many, many, lovely and thoughtful gifts from Krewe members and community organizations, and the Royalty were overwhelmed by the generosity and good wishes from the Krewe and community at large!
Prince Jackson and Princess Shelby were particularly appreciative of the gifts bestowed upon their Daddy and Tante Tonya, and had a great time playing in the discarded wrappings and ribbons!
Once the gifting was complete, we retired to the back garden to enjoy a few more cocktails and discuss our ambitions for the Krewe's upcoming year!!
