Mommy, Let's See If There's A Box!

Ever since Sofía was really little, — all right, let's be honest, she's not exactly "big" by any stretch of the imagination, but you get the idea — Nana and Grandpa Staley have started this little tradition of sending "boxes," or as we in the adult world often refer to as packages. These packages vary in shape and size, and are sure to be full of surprises and expressions of love. At one point or another, everyone enjoys receiving boxes filled with goodies, especially if those goodies include something edible like "dulces," right Sofía?

Up to this point, the postal worker has placed Sofía's packages on the front doorstep. Whenever you open the door, if a package has been delivered, you practically step on it — we don't have a tough time noticing when boxes have arrived. Sofía anxiously awaits her "boxes" so much so that it has become part of her daily routine to open the front and see whether Nana and Grandpa have sent her a box. Earlier this week, Sofía was so excited to receive a box with a book, candy, and a Christmas CD. Nana and Grandpa even included a few special things for Mamá y Papá.

Thank you, Nana and Grandpa, for loving us so much to send us boxes filled with little surprises to brighten our day. We love the goodies! Sofía can't wait to go open the front door to see if there's a box, so until next time...
