Oh happy day! It was shoe box day today! I posted about last year's here. I filled three this year because I couldn't find the box size I usually use (boot box, boots are shoes! That should totally count). Well this year there were only regular size boxes so we did a 2-4 year old girl, a 5-9 year old girl and a 5-9 year old boy. As always, it was much fun. I wish every year that I could go deliver the boxes myself. Josh paid for them online though so I will get to see what country they go to. That will be a tiny consolation.
:( The picture is teeny! Okay let me describe it for you. This is the 2-4 year old box. It includes: cabbage patch doll in bunny outfit, two Disney Princess dolls with changeable clothes (Tiana and Ariel), Brown Bear Brown Bear What Do You See?, Sofia the First sticker book, Whac-a-Mole card game, My Little Pony figurine, mini Etch-a-Sketch, toothpaste, toothbrush, soap.
5-9 year old boy box. It has two superhero figurines (Captain America and Spiderman), two HotWheels, Uno, a football, Lego Fire Truck thingy, Cars stickers, slime that makes noises, punch balloons, toothpaste, toothbrush, soap, candy.
5-9 year old girl box. Lego friends set, Barbie's little sister who's name I forget, Uno, Etch-a-Sketch, slime that makes noise, crayons, coloring/sticker book, hairbands, Disney Princess stickers, punch balloons, toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, candy.
I maintain that I could have gotten one more thing in the 5-9 year old boxes, but Josh says they are just fine and maybe they won't lalalaala get broken up by the packers lalalalala. Yes the lalalas are there because I refuse to believe that my boxes will be opened and split up! I want everything I packed to go to one little person, so Obviously if I sing over that suggestion it isn't going to happen. My singing has that power. Who knew?
Go pack a shoe box of your own!
