anyways, grant has been really homesick, just like most missionaries go through around this time of their mission (6 month mark to year mark).. anyways, so i decided to make him a "brighten up package" just to try and make it a little easier.
so i collected all things yellow that i thought he would like:
+ apple juices
+birthday cake oreos
+juicy fruit gum
+sour patch kids
+ sweedish fish
+ crystal light
+ sixlets (he loves those weird candies)
my biggest struggle is decorating the box (yes i know the paper isn't exact, but i was also helping my friend with a package for his friend as well, so don't judge) so i just chose yellow, sparkles (because my last package, i sent SO many sparkly things; and he got mad :) so i just did it to irritate him.. plus what's anything without sparkles?)..
ps. if you are sending it to someone out of the country or state (but especially, out of the country) get a flat rate box!!!!!!!!!!! trust me, it will save you so much money. specifically $60 because i have to ship my boxes to New Zealand :(
so here is the outcome:
i also decided to look up scriptures on strength, missionary work, love, and faith.. just some uplifting messages to remind him why he is out doing what he is doing. i then tied the messages to each little treat i put in there (too lazy to take a pic to be honest ha)..
anyways, cheers to missionaries, crafting, and mothers day.
