We Love the FedEx Man!

A few minutes ago, as we were busy with Saxon Math and shaping bread loaves (two different subjects:), a knock came at the door. When opened, we saw the FedEx man driving away and this box on our front step.


It took three of us (two of us being small) to heft it inside. We opened it up to find a pair of gloves and warning note about dry ice. (I wish I had thought to grab my camera at this point. I'm too rusty on my blogging.)

Inside, we found something wonderful. I quickly went to my inadequate freezer and began clearing out anything that had been there for a year or more! Miraculously, we were able to clear out the bottom basket of everything except for the baby's milk, which doesn't take up much space . . .

So here's what it looks like now.


Here we are choosing our favorite flavors. We can't wait for our neighborhood ice cream party on Monday. Thanks, Dreyers!


If you live in our neighborhood (or close enough to crash it without feeling too guilty,) come on by Monday evening from 6:30-8:00.

Ah, man! And just when I was sure I'd never want to move to California. Maybe I need to change my mind.
Have a delightful party! Yum!

So much fun. I can't remember if I told you but a gal in our neighborhood/ward won an ice cream party - it was a blast. I'm sure yours will be also. As our was winding down there were several folks talking about doing it every year and trying to figure out how it would work.

You know what? I entered that contest too. Didn't win. Boo hoo.

But I'm so happy for you! It must have been so exciting to open that box. What a fun party you will have. I totally wish I could crash it. :)

And Margaret is completely adorable!
