Halloween Countdown 2017: Gifts from my Nephew!

Sometimes I really enjoy being the crazy aunt. For one thing, my beloved nephew and niece send me fun stuff, like this:

Bryan gift 1

My nephew works for a logistics company,so he’s conscientious about including a “shipping manifest” for a box of stuff he sends. In the box were all kinds of things for me, my husband, my other brother,and my mother and stepdad, and my nephew Bryan neatly wrote a description of everything and who it all should be distributed to. ๐Ÿ™‚

Here is most of my stuff before I uncovered a few more things. I should note that my oldest sibling’s children attend theย University of Arkansas and therefore are big Razorbacks fans. I by default apparently now have to support the team —Bryan asked me if I would send some good juju—–so.uh..WooO PIGS! SOOOIIIEEEEE!(did I do that right, kids?)

Anyway, I got a kitty candleholder and candles, a lighter with an awesome reptilian eye(I don’t smoke, of course,but people can send me stuff like this anyway if it looks cool), a couple of Oreo Halloween eggs that I have to share with Steve, a sweet kitty and pumpkin magnet, and a great drawing of a Jack o’ lantern face on the envelope with my card. ๐Ÿ™‚

Summer Fun at Target! Sharks and Mermaids and Dinosaurs, OMG

Once the Easter stuff cleared out, they hit me yet again with summer stuff with themes of sharks, mermaids and dinosaurs!!!

I tried out my open pack of the dinosaur crayons…well, they ain’t much for coloring but they sure are cute. As for the stretchy sharks, usually I detest touching anything of this ilk, so I only got a package to keep. Still, they look really cool.
