May is a big month here on 34th street.
it starts off with a birthday that's "in sync" with Cinco de Mayo.
next, we celebrate another b-day on the 12th, (which just happened
to be Mother's Day this year.) our anniversary is on the 18th,
and the finale,
Jay's day, and three days off in a row!
|:: ici ::|
it's a party or a picnic every weekend!
my sister in law, Carol and her husband Gary decided to
take an impromptu drive to Boise just in time for Jay's birthday.
we sent a B I R T H D A Y C A R E P A C K A G E with them!
|he's the one with the cool shoes! ...very "façonnable"!|
you all know that Jay is a SPORTS GUY! in fact...let me brag a little,
( i am his Mom!), he was very recently promoted to Sport's Director at KTVB!
|"The Catch" May 26, 1995. R.I.P. Kingdome. Never forget.|
Chrislyn and Jason's contribution to the package was two very cool
Ken Griffey Jr. retro t-shirts that they found at Nordstrom,
|she loves her little brother!|
...some precious pics of his niece and nephew.
|sweet little dreamer!|
you may have guessed that Jay's fave baseball player ever is Ken Griffey Jr.
i could write a book about the joy and inspiration"The Kid" brought to
our house. when Jay was 9 years old he read over 50 books in the
Summer reading program for a chance to meet his baseball home run hero!
Mr D and i most likely purchased his last Griffey t-shirt when he was twelve,
so this was a sweet gesture from his sister and Jason.
( i will let you in on a little secret, Jason bought a t-shirt too!)
if you were a child that grew up in the Pacific Northwest in the late
80's and early 90's and loved baseball, you undoubtedly loved
2 "The Kid!" 4
without saying anything other than,
"we are sending a C A R E P A C K A G E to Jay via Aunt Carol
and Gary", it's amazing how bit of a theme evolved!
last month, Antique Farm House featured the metal distressed
numbers above. i thought that they would look awesome in Jay's
bedroom and ordered a two and a four. they are about 13 inches
tall, substantial and a bit heavy...i am so thankful that we didn't
have to mail them! thank you Aunt Carol and Gary!
here's the wrap!
i decided i would try my hand at the little fork pom poms that i have been seeing
all over Blogville! i used baker's twine!
i smushed them onto a gift tag!
the next gift to go into box was two very cool drapery panels from Hobby Lobby.
( have i mentioned how i love that store?)
they were 50% off on a grand opening special!
perfect, for Jay's bedroom redo!
a little more of a challenge to wrap...
...but it turned out nice!
i tossed in a few keepsakes from his baseball years!
Mr D parted with a selection from the Spring release.
the package was wrapped, loaded, and ready to be
(i hope that your week is running on time. with the holiday, i am still a day
behind! see ya Friday!)
