Special Delivery!

A dear friend of mine and her mother in Des Moines sent a special box to Emily. These two put together a box of Beatrix Potter-related treasures. My friend Sherry and her mother (who is 90-years-young) knew exactly how to make a four-year-old girl happy! Sherry’s mother made little clothes for the characters, including little shoes and jacket for Peter Rabbit. I love the little skirts on the Flopsy Bunnies, who came holding their own carrots (with some pea pods as well.) Jemima Puddleduck and her ducklings arrived in their own nest which Emily found enchangint. Peter arrived in a watering can, and Emily knew just why Peter was in there! Naughty bunny for being in that garden. The little vintage mouse Emily decided is Hunca Munca from the Tale of Two Bad Mice. Also in the box was a book and CD of the Potter stories being read. I love audio readings of books for children, as it allows good use of their imaginations.

I’m so thankful for the loving people God has allowed to bless our lives and our children’s lives. The kindness and effort put into that lovely box of treasures means more than they can know. It promises to provide hours of imaginative fun for both Em and me. Knowing all the effort of loving hands that went into it makes it all extra special!

  1. Oh, this is just so precious and what a timely post as I have been collecting patterns to make doll clothes! Emmy and family, I am so happy for the blessing you have received from some very special friends:-) Thank you, Lord.

  2. How adorable! Many hours of imaginative play for Emmy! I love the Beatrix Potter characters and stories!

  3. What a cute idea and gift. Your friends must have had alot of fun getting that box ready. I love the Peter Rabbit stories. My husband would read them to my boys when they were little and he would change names and the boys would giggle at their Dad. Good memories.

  4. Shhh! The ducklings look more like baby chicks, but let’s just wait and see if Emmy notices! If and when she does and if they are chicks, she can pretend that they are adopted.
