Wonderful Wednesday

We have been wanting to send a package to Drew for some time now, but with Matt recently being out of work, (he is still working)we put sending anything on hold. So, we really wanted to get something in the mail before the end of the month so I am sending this out today. Drew will be receiving two shirts, one pair of jean, one pair of glow in the dark jammies, two puzzles and some other little toys from the D*llar T*ee. We are also sending him the little white hard hat. There is a story behind the hat. One evening when we were skyping with Drew Matt put that hat and and Drew LOVED it. He literally tried to come through the computer screen to get it so we promised we would send it to him. Oh, and how could I forget the bag of candy and M&M's.

This was also included in Drew's package this month. As we were talking with Drew this past Sunday, Emma was drawing him a picture. She showed it to him but I had no idea she had written on it and included it in the box until I repacked it this evening. I especially love that she drew her eyes round and Drew's almond. She also made sure they had yellow shirts on because that is Drew's favorite color.

Here is what the letter says on the back of the picture:

Dear Drew,

Hope you are having fun in China. Hay Drew did it snow there? Drew are you ready to come live with us yet Drew! Drew I really, really, miss you. Did you like the picture on the back. Hey Drew can you draw and write a note back to me!

I just found your blog here in Indiana. I have an Asian daughter from Russia and we have been patiently waiting for a sister from China. Our referral will be next month.

I like your ideas for the care packages. I can't wait to have someone to send one to...
