O is for O-pen it... O-pen it!

I am participating in Alphabe Thursday over at  Jenny Matlock's Off on my Tangent. Today is the letter "O".

Grandma Susie sent us a care package. It was waiting outside the gate.. Alex went and got it and opened it. Inside were a few odds and ends, a few things we left at Christmas such as a spare sock, a bottle of shampoo, some boxed mac and cheese she probably purchased before we got there and never got around to eating, a package of chocolate donuts (which got snatched and hidden so fast by Mark I never even saw them). And the VERY VERY best part was a simple plastic container.........with............her famous CARROT COOKIES!!! I have always loved them and she was planning to make them at Christmas and never got around to it, not that I was disappointed or anything :) Better late than never right?

THANK YOU MOM!

How stinking cool is that! I think I might send my girls a care package in the mail. Is that dumb? Nah. I think it would be fun. Maybe in some random month that is kind of a slow one? Hmmmm

I love getting care packages from my mom!

Those cookies look great! Do you mash up the carrots with the wet ingredients?

I love your Mom. Can she adopt me, too!

I'm really loving these outstanding smileboxes you share with us for Alphabe-Thursday.

They are really outstanding. And you are outrageously cool.

Thanks for linking.
