Pretty sure these were Christmas dresses, but aren't they Valentine-y looking?
Yes, momma made them. She is quite skilled!
So you'd walk to the CPO (campus post office at Moody) counter and with great anticipation, waited for the package to be found (which could sometimes be an ordeal) and see what and who the package was from.
Closest thing to a college photo I have digitalized.
I don't realize how much I've aged until I look at older photos. Sigh.
And every year, I would forget about these gifts and be equally surprised each year they showed up. Partly because it seems so soon after Christmas and partly because she was in college most of my college years. Yet, sister always sent something fun.
In Panama, she would send something if she got the chance. Receiving packages cost me an arm and a leg, so I highly discouraged it! :)
But she would send a card or photos or something. Why? Because Hannah loves to bless others. AND yet every time, I was still surprised.
This year was no different.
Today this ridiculously cute envelope was in my mailbox. I still got the kid-like butterflies and excitement in my stomach! I couldn't wait to get inside and open it up.
And the treats inside were no less delightful. Clothes (so fun!) and a new type of card.
But having a sweet baby darling niece means there are more fun surprises inside...
Yes, I'm a little biased, but isn't that the cutest little hand you've ever seen?
So while I have no expectations this tradition must continue (sister, you are always free to send or not! NO pressure!), I'm thankful for her kindness and thoughtfulness and love. You are a sweet treasure, beyond what you do, but because of who you are. (Yes, I realize I'm switching tenses and verb stuff, but oh well!)
Thank you for letting me such a part of the Little Tiny's Life. She is a hoot and I love that she makes you laugh too (though I know she makes you shake your head in disbelief at times too - ha!)
Good grief, we were cute kids!
Still can't believe people thought we were twins!
Look at how properly you were sitting. Such a fashionista.
Little Miss makes the same face as you do in this photo! :)
