LOVE sent from Oklahoma (times two!!)

Grammy surprised the boys with one of her famous "Box of the Month" care packages. It's AMAZING how much she can cram into one USPS box!! We laugh teasing that it's like opening up Mary Popins' carpet bag...

Gavin loves playing with the box! He enjoys putting the items in and then taking them out... again and again and again! (Notice his new backpack - he loves it and will wear it for hours... Sweet Boy!)

Will you be my Pen Pal? :)

Snack Keepers = SNACKS (Gavin's FAVORITE word!!!)

AND The BIGGEST hit of the night Zhu Zhu Pets! They are motorized guinea pigs that move, do tricks, and make funny sounds. The boys were hysterical with these things! Tanner's first comment was "We could have a lot of fun with these mice and Nida!" (Nida is our housekeeper - I'll need to worn her!)

The funny thing is that Mom picked out two that look just like the guinea pigs Lauren and I had when we were kids (geeeze, I hope these two don't breed like our real ones did!)

Gavin loving on the monkey from his new backpack!

They LOVED IT! Thank you Grammy!!!!


The boys have been spoiled! Thank you Papa John and Grandma Beth for a great care package... The boys were so excited to see some of their long lost Christmas toys, as well as all the new books and gifts! Here are some highlights!

It felt like Christmas all over again! The boys were so excited to see what surprises were hidden in the packing peanuts!

Zany Bandz! Now we know what Lando is talking about... we had no idea these things even existed. They are VERY VERY popular with the kids back home in Oklahoma!

"Mommy help me open my new Baby Einstein books!!!"

"YAY! A new OU shirt because my old one is too small!!!"

THANK YOU Papa John & Grandma Beth!!!!
