Fun Mail!

My friend, Angela, surprised me recently with a really fun box! She included some of the maple syrup that she and her family make! She also sent me pictures of how they do it, a copy of Sugar Snow - a Little House on the Prairie book and some wonderful snow pictures for when I miss snow. I am so amazed at her special thoughtfulness and it was definitely a bright spot in my day! We had pancakes with this delicious syrup last night and I read the Sugar Snow book to the ladies!! Thank you, Angela!

Another fun box I received recently was a Pajama Gram! My Mom sent me this for my birthday - a cute box ...:
... with another cute box inside ...:... and cute jammies inside all that!Thank you, ladies, for such fun mail!

You sure hit the jackpot with mail!
My sister has also made her own maple syrup from the trees around her place. There's just nothing like it!
BTW, I'm doing a 400 post giveaway on my blog, if you'd like to visit!
