The Creation of a Care Package

Recently, I put together a care package for my Cousin Cindy in England. That's in Europe.

It turned into a family affair when Aaron spotted the PopTarts. He declared them his, which is why we're at war over them.

Jeremy helped me get them back.

But, Aaron pulled his old trick of yelling "look, a bird!" and pointing. Jeremy fell for it, even though it's been years since a bird got into our house. I had to take matters into my own hands, tackling him to get the PopTarts back. Our dog Nikki was near at hand in case I needed assistance. Or maybe he was just trying to get some PopTarts.

Then Jim got into the swing of things and started suggesting items we might want to add to the package.

I said, "Jesus, Jim no one wants to get a care package with fruits and vegetables. Unless it's the pear gift from Harry & David's." Jim got a little belligerent and started lecturing Aaron on the benefits of eating healthy.

Aaron doesn't fall for it. He thinks eating healthy just makes you grumpy! So Jim tried to sneak in the stuff anyway.

Luckily, I caught it in time and was able to replace the vegetables and fruit with Peeps and other Easter candy!

We sure hope Cindy loves her Care Package!


  1. You and your peeps!

  2. Peeps is right! I tried the ones in the microwave, and YUCK!!!! They are so much better right out of the package. Of course, could it be they were really old??

  3. love the picture of you and must say I agree that is a F~you look! Pretty defiant!

  4. Ewww, peeps!

    I saw you on twittermoms and I'm your newest follower. Happy Friday!


  5. Sounds like a great care package to me! I would think that sending fruits and vegetables through the mail would be a bad idea. Wouldn't they end up all bruised and battered?
