So much fun!!!

We got our miniswap package in the mail this weekend and the kids were over the moon! It came all the way from H and S in Norway!! First off, here is what spilled out of the envelope


Little wrapped goodies and bags foir the kids. The green tissue paper happens to be the same color as the new paint in the kitchen!

In all the bootie were these darling little easter goodies. I particulary love the postcards and little eggs. Oh and the chocolate bars had the cutest little wrappers. They disapeared very quickly- M just toted them around all afternoon!



Each kid got a fabric drawstring bag with goodies inside. L just kept walking around all day saying ,"this bag is so awesome!" He loves planets and thinks that there is something magic about drawstring bags! We made one some time ago and he couldn't get over how great it was to just pull the ribbon and the bag closes up!




I think my favorite part was a book they made for us with drawings and photos of our new pals from Norway. They also wrote all about life in Norway- the things they do the types of foods they eat- it was really fun to read to the kids. Plus there was even a little sewing kit wrapped in the sweetest red with hearts fabric! I was sure to put it away right away so that I get to use it and not the kids!
Oh, one more thing- there was a coloring book in M's bag that has the absolute sweetest drawings- check this out


Dont you love their little mushroom caps? All in all we had a ball with miniswap! The good news is that there will probably be another one in late summer early fall. The bad news is that we ahve to wait that long! It was really nice to involve the kids in this and to make some new friends far far away!
