Care Package!

A couple of Shannon's friends from college wanted to send us a care package and asked us what we'd like, so we sent them a list: vanilla pudding, some white t-shirts, a Cooking Light magazine, some Reece's peanut butter cups, ibuprofen, Desitin, vanilla, a calendar, and maybe some peanut butter, if they wanted to send something so heavy. We were thinking that this wasn't a huge list and that it could all fit in a large bubble envelope. When the postman brought a package slip to our door that said we had to go to customs to pick it up, it listed the weight of the package: over 10,000 grams (10 kilos, or 22 pounds)! What on earth had they sent us?!?!

So Shannon trekked across the water to Europe and hauled this back:

A HUGE package!

They had sent us exactly what we'd asked for: in mass quantities! We certainly weren't expecting so much, and they even sent Lane a Christmas gift! Thanks so much, Patrick and Allison (and anyone else who contributed)! We have enough peanut butter to last us a year, I think!

Almost 8 pounds of peanut butter, a large jar of Desitin, Nilla wafers (hello, banana pudding!), a ton of Reece's, ibuprofen, gum, a calendar, vanilla, t-shirts, a book, newspapers, and Lane's gift. Wow!


  1. Your list sounds a lot like mine, down to the peanut butter. What a great care package!
