Gifts from Europe, USA & Canada

Anastasia has been receiving so much mail lately, that we've had a hard time blogging it all! Here is more from the past week...

This array of gifts arrived from friends across Europe. The socks are from Ursa in Slovenia; the address labels from Tarja in Finland; and the ornament and Chicco di Felicita from Scila in Italy.

Julie's cousins in Indiana, USA, also sent packages this week. Janice sent this outfit  - but we hope the cheeky saying on it will not come true!

And Janice's daughter, Diana, sent this beautiful snowsuit, perfect for our wintry climate here in northern Saskatchewan.

A number of parcels also arrived from New Brunswick this week. First, one came from Julie's cousin, Amy, and her husband, Nick. It contained this pretty outfit (Julie has always loved brown and pink in combo), plus a classic fairy tale book.

Julie's aunt, Linda (Amy's mum) sent this lovely package, containing a warm, knit dress in an interesting black & white pattern, a cute rattle toy, a book about a baby being born, and a finely crafted set of baby silverware in a seaside theme - very appropriate, considering that we are originally from the coast.

Finally, a package arrived, too, from Julie's aunt, uncle and cousins - Donna, Geordie, Michael & Thomas. It was wrapped carefully in a fancy basket and contained these pretty outfits, plus a book of photos of Julie's aunts, uncles, cousins and grandmother on her mother's side of the family. Now Anastasia can "meet" everyone through pictures, even before she makes the long trip to the east coast!
