Happy Mail and Hopscotch

Every month, I impatiently wait for a little red slip to show up in my mailbox telling me that my box of paper goodies is at the post office, ready for us to pick it up.

Nathan was around when the box came home this month so I got him to help me open it. Look at that concentration.

I like to lay all the contents out so I can see what I got.

Here's a close-up of the rainbow goodness that is Mr. Hueys. And the smash* date stamp I've been waiting so long for. And a replacement white gel pen because the one that was supposedly brought over from Canada when the grandparents came to visit still hadn't turned up.

And that is how I open my happy mail!

Caleb wanted in on the action, too!

Here's a layout I made last night with last month's kit. I originally wanted the title to be in an arch shape, but as I lay the letters down, I ran out of space so I made it into a little "bounce" shape instead.

Studio Calico just had an amazing Last Call sale and while I was clicking around, Nathan said:

Hurry, mom! Take one of each off the shelf and put it in your cart! Maybe take two of each. Or take 5 of each because your oldest son is 5! Quick, buy it all!

Want to know what happens when you take your five-year-old's shopping advice? You'll have to come back when I post next month's happy mail to see what I got!
