Joey Feek and her family received a very special surprise on Friday. As Rory wrote in his blog This Life I Live, the Feeks were expecting a box full of goodies from their friends in Arkansas, but they didn’t expect who would be delivering those goodies.
“Some friends of ours from Arkansas, Dave and Nicole Trudo, called a few days ago and said that they were sending a box filled-with-goodies to us and that it was going to be delivered in a special way… and boy, they weren’t kidding,” Rory Feek wrote in his post titled “santa baby.”
“He had the real beard, the real belly, and on top of that he had the kindest smile and a heart for special babies and mama’s with no hair… I loved him from the moment I met him.”
While Joey and Rory were delighted to see Kris Kringle at their door, their daughter, 22-month-old Indiana (Indy), took a little longer to warm up to him. Like most young kids meeting Santa Clause for the first time, Indy just wasn’t quite sure about the man in the red suit.
“What a blessing this evening was. Indy’s first time to meet Santa Clause… and Joey and I’s first chance to get to know him a little better,” Rory wrote. “With all the wonderful gifts that Santa (and the Trudo’s) brought, our little baby really only cared about one… the big box the presents came in. She found a spot in the bubble wrap and paper and just read her books and played ’til she was worn out and ready for bed.”
