Care Package #8: Hometown

All of the care packages I have sent to Daniel in Virginia were just practice for the real care packages he would be receiving in Korea.  After three weeks in Korea he finally got an address and I was able to send him his first overseas package.  Not to brag, but I'm pretty sure it made his day.  

For his first package I wanted to try to bring home to him by making a hometown package.  If Exeter could be known for anything, it would be the water tower, so I made sure it was included in the decorations.

The box was filled with some of his favorite foods, America and Exeter themed items, and things he forgot...
Red Bull
Cracker jacks
Local newspapers
Beef jerkey
Granola cereal
Mug decorated with pictures
Jolly ranchers
Exeter T-shirt
Exeter postcard

Not pictured:
M&M snack mix
Mac and Cheese
and a few things he forgot at home like
sunglasses, headphones, etc.

I already have two more boxes ready to go... I think I have a care package addiction problem...

Care Package #7: Easter

Between school finals, visiting Daniel, gymnastics competitions, and getting him ready to deploy, I haven't had much time to post my boxes.  But here is the Easter box I sent him while he was still in Virginia...

I shoved everything small enough into Easter eggs and added things that would be in a kid's Easter basket...
Annie's cheddar bunnies
Annie's cocoa and vanilla bunnies
Gold bond
beef jerkey
silly puddy
Reece's and Snicker's eggs
Cliff energy shots
Mio iced tea
robin eggs
iced coffee packets
Hot wheels car
M&M's (the boy loves M&M's so I got him some in every
flavor: chocolate, peanut, pretzel, peanut butter)
This was the last package I sent him in Virginia. Unfortunately Daniel's in Korea now :( so the rest of the packages will be going across the world.  He's still in temporary housing so although I have a package ready, I can't send it to him yet.  More posts will be coming as soon as I can send them to him...
