Belated Birthday Parcel Party

Last week Alia received a very exciting belated birthday parcel from Auntie Erin and Uncle Josh! When I opened up the mail compartment, and she caught a glimpse of the box, her little eyes just sparkled and she asked "Is THAT for me?!?!" You can only imagine the squeals and skipping when I answered "yes!"

I carried the box most of the short walk home, but she wanted to take the finishing leg and take it across the thresh hold!

All hands were on deck when it came to ripping into the box...

... unless little sister was distracted long enough with packing tape! Alia's played this "distraction game" before, can ya tell?! :) 

A special birthday card for Alia...

... AND a little love note for Larren! SO SWEET!

It was an opening frenzy, I tell ya! (And Erin and Josh... what a special little touch to wrap everything! It made the excitement level that much higher!!)

And when all was said and done, she sure hit the birthday parcel jackpot!

Books, socks, puffy stickers, jewelry, nail polish, an Etch-a-sketch, and some hair pretties!

"Ahh... here we go... Mommy's lens is useful for something after all!" :)

The instant her necklace was on and her hair clip secured, she grabbed some paper towels and made her way to the verandah! It was T(oe) time!

Little sister had never had her toe nails painted yet, and figured what better time than now?

She tried her hardest to sit ever so still...

but that bottle of sweet, colorful, creamy nail polish about turned her first pedicure SOUTH... in. a. hurry.

It may not be the prettiest, but we had one little Larren feeling mighty fine with her new look...

... and one very happy Alia, with all her new treasures!

Way to make the WHOLE HOUSE feel extra loved Erin and Josh! It was a huge blessing indeed! Thank you again!!! :)
