I got the autographed picture of Sean Astin!!!
« on: December 16, 2004, 02:46:40 pm »

I got it!  I got it!    Some of you may remember how disappointed I was that I didn't get to see Sean when he was at the Mall of America (only four hours away) and how my dear husband, to ease my disappointment, ordered me an autographed picture of Sean.  It came today! 

I can't tell you how excited I was when the delivery man came to the door and handed me a box that said "Autographed to You" in the return box.  I knew exactly what it was    I tore it open as fast as I could.  There it was!  A picture that Sean has actually touched and signed.    It says "To the (my family's last name) Family.  Warmest Wishes!  Sean Astin"  I decided to have it addressed to the whole family when we ordered it.  It would have been nice to just have my name on it, but I knew my husband and children would think it was kind of cool to have them included. And I am glad I did because my LOTR obsessed children were THRILLED!  (My husband is at work and hasn't seen it yet.)

I know this probably belonged in the existing "Sean Astin" thread but I couldn't resist starting a thread about it.    I hope that is okay.

I broke my new vow to only come on the forum once a day.  When that picture arrived in the mail, all vows went out the window.

Horray for you Rose!!!!!!

You should be proud of your husband who loves you so much that he got you Sean`s autograph

Is it possible that you can post the pic, Rose?

I quite agree with littledaydreamer maybe someday you`ll meet him

Thank you to all of you for rejoicing with me.    Once again you have shown me what nice people LOTR/Elijah fans are.    Thank you also for all your wishes that I will get to meet Sean in person.  All of you are so sweet and kind. I wish I could give you all a big hug. 

Yes, CoolFrodo, I am very blessed to have such a wonderful husband.    I am afraid I can't post the picture because it has our last name on it and I really don't want that on the Internet.  I'm sorry    Also, our scanner is not working working right now.  However, if I get the pictures from Sunrise I will try to post those (once the scanner is fixed) since they will only have my first name.

i plan to frame the picture.  That is secondary reason I asked for it to be signed to my whole family (the primary reason being the joy I knew it would bring them) instead of just to me.  I wanted to be able to frame and display it without anyone doubting my love for my dear husband.

Thanks again to all of you for being so happy for me.



*goes to look at picture for the 100th time, comes back*

Thank you to all of you.  All of you are so sweet!  If you want to see the picture, you can go to this link:

http://www.autographedtoyou.com/celebrity.asp?id=1107

It is the second picture, of Sean dressed in black.  He signed it at the bottom of the picture.  He wrote "To the (my family's last name) Family.  Warmest Wishes! Sean Astin" 

One thing that is very minor but, for some reason, it meant a lot to me, is that he added an exclamation mark after Warmest Wishes.  As you can see from the site, we chose the picture and what he wrote but the exclamation mark was not there in the choices but he added it.  Just a little personal touch that I thought was sweet.  Yes, I realize he probably does it for all of them....but still..

Thanks again to all of you for being so happy for me!

Thanks, Tafika!    *Hugs back to you*


You know, this probably sounds silly  but I have been wondering where he was when he signed it.  Was he sitting at his dining room table?  Was he flying on the plane to yet another book signing?  Was he sitting at his desk?  Were his girls playing near him?  Was Christine around?  Like I said, it is silly, but just something I have thought about.
