okay, I don't have pictures, I will post those sometime tomorrow b/c the kids are in bed right now, but we received our package from kianee today.  First off, Tons and Tons (serious probably a pound or two )of the good stuff.  Chocolate!  It did melt, but none of the packages leaked, not one drop.  Which is pretty amazing since it was soupy and not everything was in plastic but in paper wrappers!  But 15 in the fridge and it was good to go---right into our bellies!

Then she sent snoodies for the kids.  So cute.  They didn't know quite what to do with them at first, but they figured it out!  They will probably be kept in the van, that way when it is raining and they both think they will melt b/c Grammy has told them they (the kids) are made out of sugar (yep, from the south), the little boogers won't have to get their heads wet.

Oh, we're not even done yet....then she carved and sent awesome stamps.  A karate girl for Liv and a train for Ben.  Perfect.  They stamped an entire post it note pad with images and put them everywhere in the house. 
Thanks so much, you are too kind.  I should also state that this cost a small fortune to send to us, so you deserve a treat!

Okay, photos are going slow.  But here are the scoodies:  The stamps will have to be after the kids clean their rooms and find them for me.  I don't enter their rooms until they are clean!

Olivia holding about half the chocolate and wearing her snood.  When we opened it we just laughed b/c that is one of my FAVORITE Ikea fabrics and she always goes with me to Ikea to buy it.

Ben's snood missing Ben.  He is sick today and not in the mood for a photo shoot.  His has a train embroidered on the side...very cool!

Thanks and I'll add pictures of the stamps which are way cool too.

I made her 3 soft balls that make noise. Smiley  I created my own little pattern to make them up because I couldn't find one I liked. Smiley

Elmo - sings ABC's

Cookie Monster - rattles

And Jack Skellington (my fave) - rattles

ACK! I haven't heard from my partner if she received or not and come to think of it I think I might have put MA for Maine on the address. I know I know, how dumb, but I'm just not good with abbreviations. But I could tell you all the state capitals.  Grin ARGH, off to PM her to see if she received.

I'm glad to see they found their way out of that little box.  I had to shove them in there.  The perfect thing about making those, is that you don't have to be perfect at all!  They are supposed to be ugly right?  I  I found myself trying to make stitches even, eyeballs even, then I just thought "oh bother...they are so goofy anyway, it will add to their charm"  My hubby likes these a lot.  Of everything I've made he said these were the coolest.  Sad since I totally copied, but oh well.  I know I'll be making more!

It would make a great first day of school present.  Today was the first day for my daughter and it sure would have beat the $20.00 barbie I bought her.  I should have thought of that!!!  I hate Barbie.

I love the Jack rattle!  Way cooler than the plastic stuff we got for my son!

We are in the process of switching over to cloth diapers.  Would love some advice, hint, tips.   Will swap for diapers!

summertimerolls: I'm glad everything got there alright! I should've known the chocolate would melt, but didn't think about wrapping it all in plastic! D'oh.  Roll Eyes Thankfully it didn't leak.

Funny though that the packet from Germany was apparently the first one to arrive *g*

Here is the awesome shirt Atsuko made for Melody! (you can see Baby trying to get in the picture there.  Cheesy)

She also tossed in some extras. The whistle is being held captive by my 2 year old son.  Smiley

Thanks Rox! The shirt is a perfect fit.
