The other day I received a package in the mail.
When I opened the mailbox and saw something more than
bills and junk mail,
well, my heart jumped.
As did the kids'.

A big mail day around here is almost as cool as... a helicopter
landing in our back yard.
So sad, I know.

But when I saw who the package was from (my friend Patty),
a sudden nervousness came over me...
because I was quickly reminded of the ear-wax pickers I had
just sent to her (a lovely gift from China to her son).

She owed me one.

In a bad way.

So of course the kids wanted me to open it.
I did.
Sweat dripping, practically.

And here's what I got...

With a lovely note that said this was to officially kick off my packing
for our cruise in 2018.

Thankfully I didn't have to explain the coconuts to anyone but Macy.
She laughed.

But the next morning as I was trying to become coherent with
my jumbo mug of coffee...
I look over and my little man had adorned himself
(I swear to ya, I had nothing to do with this)
and was delightfully playing with Easter eggs.

Thank goodness the coconuts were out of reach.

In Batman pajamas.

Patty, we're even.
For now.

Bahahahaha.......but hey, at least they won't be one bit surprised when 2018 comes. When they whine and complain, you tell them they all had plenty of warning and you are taking the coconuts and leaving town!! Little mister well, he's just plain cute, coconuts or not!
