So I took a HUGE blogging break. I have no idea what happened...just crazy busy! I thought I would catch up by posting some of the fun packages I sent Andy this past year. Maybe I'll get them done before he comes home!
This is one idea I had seen in several different places on the web. I loved the idea of sending him a box of sunshine, and I think I sent it as they were heading into winter on that side of the planet.
I bought everything I could find that was yellow, edible, non-perishable, and possibly useful to a missionary. This is what I came up with:
Because the only thing better than cereal, is cereal in a little box. That cost 95.00 to ship. That makes it extra yummy. :)
I just threw it all in a box, blew up some balloons as padding, and topped it with this cute sign!
I think I got this as a freebie from some super creative gal. I can't find the exact link, but here from funky polka dot giraffe are some other super cute printables. And you can use these this one from crafty teacher lady. I know that boys don't really care about this stuff, but I like to put a little extra effort into my care packages. I think it's my way of trying to send my love, support, worries, and prayers without words. Because I think cereal and peanut butter help remind missionaries of a home where there are hundreds of prayers being said for them everyday. Plus, someone has to keep the post office in business, right?
