We had the opportunity to send two gallon size containers to Jonathan and David a few weeks back. We were so excited!! I did not realize how much thought I would have to put into these packages. I ended up having a lot of questions for Lisa our "go-to" gal at our agency. I had initially places two soft blanks and a stuffed animal a piece in each bag. We didn't know what condition the blankets would be in, so we decided to wait until we saw the boys. I told Lisa how much Jason did not think I could get a blanket AND a stuffed animal in each bag. Let me pause and say right here. When a mother is determined....watch out!! So I took pictures to show you that I indeed got them in their containers. I was quite proud of myself and displayed my talents to Jason and of course bragged to Lisa!! :)
In the end, the picture below shows what we eventually put into their bags. The girls each painted them a picture and Gracie had drawn the picture in the middle of our family including the boys. We wrote a letter and put a family picture inside as well. It was so hard to know what to write and what to pack. I did not know how much a 3 and a 1 year old would be able to grasp as far as a picture and letter was concerned. We are so excited to meet them. The anticipation builds daily and I am thankful that my days are full of keeping up with the girls and other activities.
If I could have done one thing over, I would have sent a small photo album with pictures in it. I feel like kicking myself over that one, O well!!
'Til next time!!!
