Cora's Parcel

Oh WOW

Great excitements ! The postman arrived with a parcel addressed to Cora all the way from the USA!




So who was my surprise parcel wrapped in fabulous paper from ?

We all closely examined it. Cora declared it was from her brother Dave who now lives in Seattle in the USA.
Cora thats me in the purtle collar!


Teddy decided to be very helpful saying he could open the parcel for me....


then being the ever helpful "Teddy the Rocketman" he shot off with my parcel round and round the kitchen!
Cora said...I don't mind you opening my parcel for me Teddy! (Not that I had any choice in the matter)!




He did quite a good job as you can see..............



So..whats in my parcel asks Cora?


and inside............oh WOW



OOOOh.... I don't know what to say, Cora

the black and white one has my name on it from Dave!



we opened the bag and look what was inside........so many goodies, including yummy treats. The new year card shows Dave and Alice his sister who is 12 yrs old.

The most wonderful and very special heart " Pawprint"brooch".



This was part of the messgage...... We didn't know what to say and there were some tears. Karen says she will always wear it proudly!


Corrr....Red wrapping paper with piccies of us on it. How cool is that? Hooman treats to go with ours!

Cora's special stuffing free toy from Dave together with a lovely new collar (she forgot to take a photo of Cora's collar)!



Cora deciding what to say with Webster's help........



Thank you so much to my wonderful brother Dave, his big sister Alice and their lovely very very special mum Lydia from all of us!

Cora what a wonderful and heartfelt surprise! The paw print brooch gave all of us a tear in our eye. Dorcus and your stories have touched many hearts - all over the world!
I just love reading about you Thuglets!
I spied something in your goodies that I think I have too! The red,green and white reusable eco bag! I bought mine in Santa Monica, CA and use it almost everyday.

What a super surprise for Miss Cora!! We always wonder when we mail stuff overseas if it will get there in one piece. You got such wonderful pressies from your brother. That pin is special for sure. AND the Liberty Orchards candy is one of our mommy's faves!! She especially loves their Applets and Cotlets. yum.
