This morning Sam woke up sick so i kept him home from Pre-school (hmm...or is he pretending....).
ANYHOO lucky i did, the timing was PERFECT !
At 9am, when i would normally be dropping him off to preschool, the bell at the front door went ding ding and i heard my parcel guy Glen (yes we are on a first name basis) yell out "Delivery Shannon". I ran to the door ( yes i run when i get parcels...im sooo excited). I was thinking Oh Yeah it'll be my fabric from O.S....NOPE EVEN BETTER !!!!!
The LONG AWAITED, MUCH ANTICIPATED, PARCEL from my beautiful friend
LORI @ pinkfadedroses had at last arrived.
Lori sent this off almost 5 weeks ago, it was meant to be here for Halloween and never arrived. We have been so upset that this parcel looked like it was gone for good......
BUT HERE IT IS !!!!
Sam and i were yelling and jumping around like we'd won lotto! And honestly it felt like we had. Then the excitement went through the roof as we started opening up this box of goodies. I was crying like a baby too ! Everything wrapped in little halloween bags, orange and black tissue paper and a personal card for both Sam and I from Lori ( we love you too sweetpea).
NOW>>>>>FEAST YOUR EYES ON ALL OF THIS WILL YOU !!!!
Little parcels wrapped up just for Sam..... books, candy , halloween cutouts, stickers, toys, playdoh....the list goes on. All for Sam.
I think Sam was in shock. He just couldnt believe all that was for him.
Then he was just beside himself with excitement !
There was even a special package made just for me :)
Look at how gorgeous this is ! I love it Lori!
And i love love love what was inside....mmmm CANDY CANDY and more CANDY ! I can feel my thighs exploding already :) AND pink playdoh 'specially for ME Yippeee yippeeee
Oh am i meant to share this candy Lori ???????? LOL, Not likely *wink*wink*
Well by this stage Sam had endured enough waiting so he thought he better pack up some of his goodies and hide them before Mummy eats them all (smart boy).
Lori we cant thank you enough. You are such a doll to do this for us. WE LOVE YOU. Sam has been talking about you all day now and asked me "How do we get to America to see Aunty Lori?" i said "On a big plane Honey" his response was so simple "Well lets go then."
Now wouldnt that be nice......We could give you big hugs and giggle our silly heads off and you would know just how much we adore you.Hopefully you know already but.Im so glad we found each other and i keep our friendship very close to my heart.
Ok im grabbing another tissue now....
****Well i am off to have a snack now...hmmm what shall i have.....yes i think i hear a hersheys lollypop calling my name....ahhh sweet!
LOVE N HUGS
Shann (who will no doubt have a tummy ache by tonight)!But it will have been worth it.
p.s There are no pics of me opening the parcels as i had a bit of an accident with a bottle of hair dye last night....hmmm lets just say 'Swamp Green' is not my colour..... LOL (yeah at least i can laugh about it).
