Great Mail strikes again.

Today was a fun mail day yet again. We got 6 letters from Spencer and Kari thanking us for their recent trip and reminding us of all the fun things we did. Kari that was so nice of you to handwrite all those letters and our address so many times!

Caroline got a get well package from Liz B. Which was so nice considering I have not seen or talked to her is over 6 years! And what is so funny is if you read her blog from a few days ago she posted the package saying "I sent some good mail today to someone" who would have ever thought it was me! I like the idea and am going to try it by taking a photo of something before I send it . (cute idea Liz!)She also sent fun bubble stuff, that girls instantly put to good use, along with a puzzle and stickers. The card she sent was amazing and especially when I realized that it was handmade.



Then there was something ohh so great inside the box as well. An Idaho Spud. Yes, I know this will once again gross everyone out. But I will confess I love them. I had commented on Liz's blog that I loved these things and wa-la one appeared in my mailbox. Liz, I have no idea how you came across this but I am forever thankful!

Wow, that is a really great mail day, I love to see what everyone gets. How nice of Spencer and Kari to send you so many thank you notes, it's a big deal to host company like that so it's always nice when they appreciate it.

Hey, look at all that awesome loot!

What do the Idaho Spuds taste like anyway? I have seen them but never tried one :P

I love that picture of Sally. She is pure joy! I am so thrilled to see all of those letters and gifts. Just take a minute and let it really sink in how very cared for you are, ok?

I saw those Idaho Spuds in ID and I swear I thought of you! Want to hear something gross that I eat when I am out west because they don't have them out here? Chocodiles. Have you heard of them? They are basically a twinkie dipped in that lovely waxy cholcolate Hostess uses. I love eating them while I am eating them, but afterwards I feel physically ill. Also, those white powdered donuts with the raspberry filling stuff in the ring of the donut? Again, hostess and they don't sell them in the East or in the South where I have lived. Probably a good thing!

6 cards in one day? That is my total fantasy. I don't even get that much junk mail in a week! How fun!!

Tasha: funny that you mentioned those raspberry filled powdered donuts. I was just looking for them the other day. I guess I'm out of luck here in VA, but like you said, it's probably a good thing.

Kristi, I'm so glad you liked the package! The Idaho Spud was one of a bunch we brought home with us from our quick trip to Idaho a few weeks ago. No one had eaten this one, so I saved it for you. Enjoy it!

I'm glad you are getting so much good mail lately. I hope it helps with your transition there. I have seen the Idaho Spuds but never actually had one, I think my mom likes them though?

Cute stuff!! And I will admit that I love Idaho Spuds too!! My aunt Reenie used to bring them to us!

Idaho Spuds, huh? Interesting. I have never had one, and I can't say that I have a strong desire to try it. Then again, I already have way too many treats that I like...

Fun mail, how cute that Spencer and Kari sent multiple notes.
