I’m not sure how many people who read my blog are military or former military, but I thought some people might be interested to know what Anne and I sent to my husband for Christmas in his care package.
This care package is chock full of goodies. I will start with the 3 (yes there are 3) green Tupperwares. They are full of home baked goodies: hot cocoa cookies, gingerbread cookies and rice crispy treat trees complete with m&m and red hot ornaments. Anne and I had so much fun baking for her Daya (that’s how she says daddy).
I wanted to be sure to include a couple wrapped gifts, so I put in his favorite Christmas movie, the original “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” and my mom put in 2 dvds that she bought. Anne picked out the LED, USB Powered Christmas tree, I thought it was especially neat as it will run off any computer. He also has some See’s candies, a tradition from my family and an m&m toy – a tradition from his family. Anne and I made a salt dough hand print Santa Clause and I included some art we did together and our picture with Santa. We have yet to have a picture with just her and Santa, she is a big fan…from afar!
Since these aren’t “Christmas” gifts, I’m not going to feel too bad about the price tag being left on the dvd set…He has a thing for mint and dark chocolate so that is why there is a candy bar. I also thought he might like to be able to hold and see the pictures from Anne’s 3rd birthday whenever he wants, so I sent him a little book of all of them.
So that is it, our Christmas care package. No sewing, but lots of baking and love going into it. And now a favor, please say a prayer that this care package makes it to him on time. I missed the mailing deadline by ONE day!!! I am hoping and praying it arrives by Christmas, after all I sent it with 14 days to spare. We shall see I guess.
