Our Package from Spain!

Well over on Dani Joy's blog a few days ago I posted a comment in a contest.
Well I forgot to tell folks to vote for me...but God willing I still won third place.

Well I told the boys I'm getting a package from Spain.

They were so excited.

My oldest said...
"That's where the strait of Gibralter lies...and they have a similar climate."

My middle said...
"Cool...can I have a taco when it comes?"

And my youngest said...
"When she comes over can I play with her?"

So I had to tell them...
"Thanks I didn't know that about Spain...
No...they don't eat tacos...
and sorry you can't play with her."

Well the package came and the post man...didn't know...

You don't give the packages to the children!...
(Hence the toothy grin on my 5 year old... above..)

So my youngest bounced in the house saying...
"Mommy the mailman said you have a hackage..."

The boys wanted to know...

was it the one from Spain...

well it was!

But I wanted to get my camera and photograph it.

So let's put it on the counter.
Nope...too close to curious hands...

so I put it behind the stove...my usual place...but I was cooking.

The boys thought this was hilarious and started to salivate over the package...

"Mom let's put it around the house"... here it is...in the family room 


Well o.k...but just a few places...


Great! Now I've got to go to the little girl's room!


So believe it or not...I took it outside...and put it here...

somewhere I knew they wouldn't get to it. I know silly...but it worked!


A few minutes later...

I sat down and opened it (my 5 year old did pretty good with the camera...and ignore the headscarf...that must be your monitor acting up) and it was

beautiful!!!!

an olive oil pitcher and it's from Spain!  

Thanks Dani Joy...I love it...

And the boys love the box...all the way from Spain!

When I finally paint my mantle (when my hubby is gone...I'll show you guys the pics.)

Peace!

So glad it made it safe and sound!
