    Jump for Joy My 1st Attempt at a Decorative B-DAY CarePackage

    Advertisements
    This will be my DH's 2nd birthday while deployed, so i wanted to do something special. I see so many of you do these really artistic piece of work for your SO's and i know this is nothing compared to that but I thought I'd share what i put together for my Honey for his birthday away from home!

    BTW, I've never done anything like this before.
    I usually pack it all up in the plain box and ship it. So, this will surprise him to no ends I'm sure

    In the 1st pic, the paint was still drying and no the cat isn't going in the package although she that box and laid next to it for the two month i've had it (yes, i made this two month ago and just mailed it yesterday)

    The flat-rate box EMPTY


    The box PACKED with junk food goodness! cause we never eat this stuff when he's home so i spoil him when he's gone




    The first thing he'll see when he opens it


    I got him the Betty Crocker's Microwaveable Cake!
    He's just got to have a cake on his birthday. I couldn't believe they made cakes like that (they even make it in his fav. flavor-lemon), all it needs is water. I even included measuring spoons so he gets it right
    I also added two mini ones in there for him to share with some of his friends
    Also, I knew i had candles somewhere in the house and I found them. And i was shocked that there was 24 in the pack...exactly how many i needed

    The rest is candy and of course buried deep i have like 10 b-day cards from me and everyone in the family and a usb drive filled with pictures. Even some naughty ones just for him
    I hope he likes it. Thanks for looking!

    you know what? I've sent him the snicker bars bag twice already and they've been getting there in 8-9 days so thank goodness they hadn't melted and he said they got there perfect! But I know he would eat it even it had
