Anne Taylor Davis and Tomie have had several "committee meetings" regarding Anne's visit for Christmas.
Since Anne decided not to drive from NYC to NH, and will train and bus to NH, she sent gifts in boxes via the U.S. Postal Service. I asked her if she wanted me to open the boxes, or if she wanted me to leave the boxes sealed until her arrival in NH.
She wanted me to open the boxes so that the "bows could breathe."
Anne is the same person who once said, "Christmas dinner is all about the brussels sprouts."
