Ah, you're such a good sister. All Eric's getting from me is a hotdog-shaped birthday card and a note from the kids. You're infinitely cooler than I could ever dream to be!!!

i love your box. very very cute. too bad sending packages to other countries costs like four times the amount valued inside of the usually. lame.

you're such a nice sister! you should have him be a live-in nanny with you when he gets home. wouldn't that be fun??

Stephanie said...

Don't you worry...my house is full of orange sugar products! I went to Target on Friday night and couldn't help myself to a little bit of everything!

Did you get my email? Am I going to get to see you on Thursday? If so, bring your cute girl (if that's not too stressful)! :)

You've always been so good at gifts. It's obvious you put a lot of thought into it. I still remember how cute you wrapped my baby shower gift...cute Tommy Hilfiger overalls in a really cute patriotic tin that I still have to this day! Way to go! I'm with Steph...love the wrapping paper!

Coree Adams said...

Wow...I wanna go on a mission just so I get a package like that from you!!

I totally went to post a comment and saw the name Stephanie, checked it out and saw Steph had a blog now too- So I started reading... (I was suppose to go to sleep)
So, way cute package! I want to do something super cute to send to the boi (just cuz I'm nice) for his birthday- we'll catch up hopefully at dinner.
Anyways- 6:30, BJ's. Hope you can come- oh please, oh please, oh please!

I hope that CUTE box with all those YUMMY orange treats makes it in one piece! I can see those mailman in Mongolia treating themselves to some orange sugar:)

I am sitting here admiring how cute that package is... and simply lamenting the fact that my brothers 1) do not have a sister like that.... and 2) would probably not appreciate or even notice the adorableness/time/creativity/wrapping product that is that gift...but Elder Dix will...cause it's in the blood...

What a fun looking package! I'm sure he's going to love all the sugar! i know I would. Cute box! It's so nice of you to send him a package. I never sent my brothers anything like that. It was always too expensive to send so far away. You're so nice.

Lucky missionary! I bet you are counting down the seconds until your 'twin' comes home!

I wish you were my sister. What else is new? I think I first had that wish when we were 10 and playing with my doll house (wait, that was my MOM you were playing with).
