The same day as Spice Extravaganza '09 the box man came to visit. (I just discovered the beauty in linking back to your own posts -- why didn't anyone tell about this before!?) Anywho, his large brown vehicle pulled up outside our house and the butterflies from my childhood returned. :) Nells was the recipient of the glorious, faded khaki package. I opened the outside box for her (duh - too young for knife wielding yet - apparently the golden age for throwing knives is nine.) which revealed a wonderfully wrapped package from Aunt Becky. I sat Sesame down by the box and this is what unfolded:
She stared and grinned.
Then played with the springy ribbon for awhile. I was slightly shocked because lately any package I place under the tree is immediately unwrapped! Then the following collage commenced:
Nonetheless, she did enjoy her package...aside from her freakish mother putting the scary ribbon in her hair. Not a fan. And it would appear that eating her crib (that's right, removes the rail guards and then chews still...) do not provide enough fiber in her diet - hence the eating of the wrapping paper. We LOVED the book and blue smocked jumper Aunt Becky!! Sorry for the whole opening before Christmas deal -- we were just soooooo excited! :)
