Yesterday I received a couple of birthday presents in the mail. How exciting!!! Not just one present, but two. It was like my birthday all over again. So let me just say thank you to both my sister and my best friend, Nicole. I love my gifts!
My sister had gotten me a Live Butterfly Garden; she's had one before and really enjoyed it. After I received the supplies and little enclosure for the butterflies, I sent out the coupon for my live caterpillars. And I was so happy to see that they finally arrived yesterday. Over the next couple of weeks or so, they will grow larger, turn into chrysalides, and develop into Painted Lady Butterflies.
Here they are, the little wormies, eating their poop-like food. Behind them, is their net-like enclosure that they will live in once they turn into chrysalides. I can't wait!!! I'll post pictures as they develop.
Now onto my second gift of the day. Nicole sent this really sweet book to me, I Like You by Sandol Stoddard Warburg. It's the cutest book and really describes our relationship to a tee. Nicole, you can be the crocodile with the doily on its head, I'll be the crazy lady in the hat, okay?!?
I thought that these pages near the end were perfect, except what's up with the look on that camel's face (it looks like he wants to hurt someone). But seriously, it's exactly how I feel about you, Nicole. It reads, "I would go on choosing you, And you would go on choosing me, Over and over again"
"That's how it would happen every time, I don't know why". Yes, Nicole, if I had to do everything all over again, you will always be my best friend!
Thanks again, girls. I love both of you very much!!!
