Latest Care Package + Video

1 Oct

I mailed off our latest care package yesterday and it was a night time theme care package.Β  Contents included:

    • a super soft blanket that SJ can start sleeping with now and then bring home with her, hopefully bringing along all of the scents that will carry the memories of who she lives with now. I forgot to take a picture of it nice and open and this one does NOT do it justice all rolled up and ready for the 1 gallon ziplock bag. Bad picture! Logan picked this one out. Suuuuper soft.

  • A little stuffed sleepy-time doll that apparently is Fancy Nancy’s BFF, though I have never read a Fancy Nancy book and I’m not sure if this little girl really is a big part of Fancy Nancy. πŸ˜‰Β  But she was darling, was in her jammies so she fit perfectly with the theme, plus she has black hair like SJ, so it was a go.

  • CUTE Hello Kitty jammies – comfy cozy warm!
  • A Jewel lullaby CD that maybe the whole room can listen to?
  • In the video, Logan and Dave each read SJ a book.Β  We’re hoping she can follow along with the same books we mailed to her! πŸ™‚
  • Some hair barrettes
  • A Hello Kitty headband
  • Some heart bracelets and rings that I hope they will share with the other girls in SJ’s room
  • One of each of the boy’s school pictures and a picture of Dave and I and one of the 4 of us.
  • Most fun this time was a real video.Β  This video took us FOREVER to figure out how to get all put together, but I’m glad we were able to do it because now it’s done.Β  It’s a whopping 11 minutes, and I know that that’s only something you’ll watch if you’re one of our family members or something, but that’s what this is here for, so it’s all good. πŸ˜‰

Notes on the video:

  • Dave’s voice and Logan’s voice are off.Β  We tried to fix it, but we couldn’t. Argh!
  • Miles was S.I.C.K. with Bronchitis. Hardly had a voice, but we needed him to participate. Poor kid. πŸ˜‰
  • Logan’s book part is REEEEAALLLLLY long! Feel free to fast forward the reading parts. Just don’t tell Dave and Logan I said so. πŸ˜‰
  • Yes, I put the ball between my knees instead of just keeping it on the grass. So dumb. haha! πŸ™‚
  • I think the accidental placement of the kids with their arms raised at that exact moment in the song is pretty neat-o.

    This is such a wonderful way for Coralie to meet her new family. She will be a wonderful addition to an already wonderful family! We can’t wait for Coralie to arrive. πŸ™‚

    What a thoughtful care package! Such a great idea to send the snuggly blanket that she can then bring home with her. Sweet!
    And the doll, she IS from Fancy Nancy. Her name is Bree. You will become veeerrrry familiar with Fancy Nancy in a few months. And Angelina Ballerina. Such fun to have your house fill up with girl stuff.
    I can’t wait to see God bring your family together!!
