Girls love little boxes

We got her first birthday gift in the mail today. It was from her Aunt Sandy, who always sends the loveliest gifts. She sent a jewelry box with nine little boxes for putting little things. In fact, they were already filled with little wooden animals and such.

Carolyn loves it. But Sandy didn't stop there. She bought Penelope a little wooden gift, a purse for me, lots of books (including a Superman for Steve to read to the girls "over and over and over" and homemade cards.

And we were having quite an afternoon (a napless fiasco of a day) and the gifts were a nice break. Here are pictures and a video from the day. Also, at the end of the video, Carolyn is eating a cracker, not the birdhouse.
