The Power of the Care Package

4 Oct


Yesterday the above arrived.  It came care of my 2 year-old niece Abigail and her big sister Bianca.  There may have been some guidance provided by Mom Jamie.  I can’t confirm or deny this as Jamie claims this is how the crafting of the care package went down:

The power of the Care Package cannot be overstated.  You don’t need to run out and get something fancy.  Scrape off a back shelf, clear off the lazy Susan, get rid of last year’s Christmas candy.  Doesn’t matter – because it really, really is the thought that counts.
