Our First Care Package

I am behind on blogging.  I seem to never find the time to actually make a post on my blog.  I am always thinking about it though, so I am hoping to catch up.

We sent off our first care package to Lauren September 15th!  I was so excited  to buy her things because up to this point I hadn't really....well, I did buy one doll but that's it.  When I would be in a store I would avoid the little girl section like the plague!  Ohhhh but now I just go stand in the middle of it!!  I walk really slowly and look at everything!  It makes me emotional and I almost started crying in Old Navy Friday night but they would have been  happy tears so they would have been ok (I just didn't want anyone to think I was crazy) :).  We have waited for so long just for a referral and sometimes it almost doesn't seem real yet and other times it overwhelms me.  When I  touch and hold the cute little clothes and think there will actually be a little girl that will wear these!  Anyway, back to our care package.  It was so hard to narrow down what we were going to send.  Everything had to fit in a gallon size ziplock baggie and not weigh more than 1 pound.  This is what we decided on....

2 outfits, 1 disposable camera, 1 photo book and a letter to Lauren.  The outfits weren't exactly what I wanted but all the summer clothes had been marked down and picked through already.  So, I had to settle for what I could find.  We can send a care package every 2 months and that will help pass the time while we wait!
