Okay. I have no idea what I’m most happy about:
- I’m off work the next two days.
- Elf is playing on the TV right now.
- I’m on my second beer.
- I applied for a house this week.
- My Christmas packages arrived safely to the middle east!
I am so excited to FINALLY be sharing the mother of all care package ideas, CHRISTMAS! *Praise break* In this post, I’ll show you not one, not two, but THREE packages I put together for my husband, troops, and my family! If you have a loved one deployed, in school, or just far away, I hope this helps inspire you to send love via care packages!
- Instant soups
- Mac n cheese
- Oatmeal (instant)
- Peanut Butter
- Beef Jerky
- Almonds & Walnuts
- Breakfast Teas & Stress Relief Teas
- Hot Coco
- Candy Canes
- & 150 + Homemade cookies (Chocolate chip, sugar, mint chocolate chip, pumpkin spice, and snicker doodle)
Total weight: 40 lbs.
Thank you to everyone who helped with this package, and to my beautiful mom, sister, and niece (along with her girl scout troop) for sending their own packages with just as much, if not more to our troops!
“Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13
As for my family’s package, I sent two packages to California. One to “mom’s side” and one to “dad’s side.” Instead of ordering online, or sending gift cards, I wanted to personally wrap each gift with a photo that comes to mind when I think of them.
Okay, and maybe all of my gifts are from Nordstrom… Sorry hunny!
I hope this inspires you to spoil those you love, and spoil them well. We never know when our last day will be, so don’t hold love back from anyone ❤ Happy Holiday and may our troops, you, and your loved ones be blessed in the name of Jesus!
Xoxo – Angel
