Special Delivery!

So for the past few days we've been missing our mail key. The inconvenience was bearable until yesterday when we noticed a narrow package peeking through the wide slot at the top. (There's about a 1/2 inch gap so the mailman can slide in letters without actually opening up the box.) After searching the house futilely for the keys, Jason finally decided to take matters into his own hands. He got out the kitchen tongs in an effort to fish out the package. Unfortunately, in the end he ended up losing the tongs down the slot too!

I can only imagine what the postman thinks about this odd American family who doesn't empty their mailbox, but deposits kitchen utensils instead...

(Addendum: We finally found the keys, hidden away in the couch. Thanks so much to wonderful grandmas and grandpas for the fabulous Valentine surprises!)

Glad you found your key ... the package I mailed from Omaha should arrive within a 4 more days and it is too thick to "fish" out of the mail slot. Keep smiling!

Happy Lincoln and Darwin's 200th Birthday observance by the way ... and Callie's half birthday of course.

Bye, Bye ...
