    Advertisements
    So of course my DB has to be gone during all the holidays! and its our first year together! im going to try and make the best of it!
    so here are my ideas by each month! if you girls have any ideas let me know!!

    Also i found the cutest thing im going to do in letters, i found a love coupon book and im sending him one in every letter!!

    October- a small fake pumkin, a trick or treat bag filled with his favorite candy, its also his birthday so im going to put party hats, plates, napkins and party favors

    November- im kinda stuck on this one, im thinking i was to do dried cranberries and paper turkeys help!!

    Decemeber- a small Christmas tree, tree skirt, cookies, (he doesnt get his big present until he comes home!)

    January- a build your own snowman kit, using styrofoam balls, pom poms and felt, snowflake cookies, and paper snowflakes with love notes on them

    February- valentine day cards, a slik rose... im stuck on this one too!

    March- a luck of the irish box with everything green!!

    April- He'll be home!!!!!

    November...I went to the dollar store this week, they have a ton of fake leaves, little jars w/ leaves on them, fake cornucopias, and Tgiving decor. So, I picked up some of that. I'm going to send food and treats of course, but this box for November is going to be my "You made me "Fall" for you" box, so I have the DVD "Legends of the Fall," etc. I know I'm like 3 or 4 boxes before I get to that one, but when I get an idea, I run w/ it.

    My DB is gone the same time frame your DB is. It's also our first year together. I'm a little stuck on November as well, but I'm thinking about focusing on a fall theme. Then maybe throw in some Turkeyday related items - write notes on the box about how important spending time your loved ones is, etc. etc. Make sure to send conversation hearts in February I think being cheesy and cliche` is the best part of care packages. LOL!

    Cute ideas!

    And just so you know, you're going to need to change your ticker. It is against OPSEC to have it counting down to when he comes home. Just a friendly reminder
