Lavella's and my birthdays aren't until later this month (the 17th and the 24th, respectively) but today when we picked up our mail, we found two boxes from Poppy/Pete and Nana/Jill (one ordered through Amazon, the other straight from them). It was touch and go trying to photograph the children opening everything, since they wanted to dive headfirst into the whole of it, but here's what I managed to get. (We called them for a video chat so that they could see the children opening the stuff "in person", but they weren't home. Keith was though, so he got to take part in the madness a little.) :)
The boys immediately ran and got her other ponies to line up together, and they've all been playing with them non-stop since.
(Jill says that she wants me to make her something cool out of this new Paris cookbook. I plan to! Just...not sure it'll make it through the mail...) :)
Not included in these pictures are more clothing, candy, and a bottle of maple syrup from Dewy Meadows (we've been buying our syrup from the commissary -- I'm so glad to have the good stuff again!)
Thank you Poppy and Nana! We've been playing with/wearing/eating all of the cool new stuff this afternoon! It was very exciting to get a box from you!
