The second box has 2 boxes of strawberry Newtons, a huge box of Christmas themed Goldfish crackers, another 4-pack of Easy Mac, and 2 more bags of M&Ms (raspberry).

I've got another one I'll send out in a bit (want to stagger them out somewhat) that has 2 boxes of fruit rolls ups, a box of s'mores pop tarts, a 12-pack of chicken ramen noodles, and 5 more bags of M&Ms (2 sweet/salty snack type and 3 almond).

Awesome!!!





Caitlin is going to get me a list of all the names of the senders of the packages she has received so far. Her coworkers and roommates love her.

She said, "MSgt Carbon said my nickname is boxes now." He's the one that brings them their stuff everyday. He's enjoying it, though, because he's benefiting from the treats, as well.

She's really thankful and wanted to make sure I let everyone know how much she appreciates everything.

Also, if you send her anything, the small travel size bottles of soap, shampoo, conditioner, etc... are like gold at the weekly bazaar. We used to trade them for DVD's, souvenirs, and most importantly..... INTEL!

Well I found out that it takes about one week to get there from the South, Sandy sent me a PM letting me know Catlin got the package and it was one week. Sandy could you give us any ideas on small Christmas gifts maybe.This is fun.

It's effective birth control, right?

I was at WW earlier getting stuff to make a cake and walked past the small appliance aisle and I had a thought, no real pain involved. Maybe they would like to have a waffle maker or a griddle to make pancakes. Ask Caitlin if they would be interested in either one. Obviously I am not sending butter but the pancake/waffle mix and syrup would be a no-brainer.

One advantage to the griddle would be that they could make choc. chip pancakes. Yummmmm!

Let me know and if they would like either I will get it off after Christmas.

Thanks, Cindy and everyone else. I'm sure that Brad would appreciate some care packages as well. I have not heard from him in a week. The last word I had was that he was still in New Mexico doing pre-deployment training. It's my understanding that they are supposed to be in country just before Christmas, so it's possible that they are intransit. Once I have an address I will let y'all know.

Thanks again for thinking of my son as well.

Godspeed to Caitlin, Sandy.
