Ugh. So much for a kind gesture

Well, I have put together our boxes going to Iraq and Katie was able to pick out, well, squat to put in the box. She is apparently emotionally attached to every toy in her toybox. When I tried to push the issue, she decided she could give up toys if she was getting a new and improved version of that toy. No I told her that was definitely not going to happen. I then waited for her to go to bed and volunteered a few stuffed animals that I know she doesn't play with to jump in the box. Where there's a will, there's a way.

So what exactly did our daughter give away?

Some stuffed animals that she hasn't seen in a while. :) She doesn't know this... so no telling.

In addition to other things I also sent the requested twinkies. :)

Ok, I really like this but for some reason I still can't see the very far side of the screen. I can read the blogs though. I forgot all about the fish egg story. Had to explain to everyone that sits near me why I was laughing hysterically.
