    I love surprises, but don't like having to wait for the mail to come, so I tried VERY hard to be patient for this package to arrive.

    Karla (barnbum) decided she needed to send me some fall since it's been a REALLY long time since I have actually experienced that season. Ok, plus, she just really likes me,,,,I think. hehe

    So anyway...I'm headed up to take a shower, was being a couch potato earlier and all of a sudden I hear a beeping at my front door. MAILMAN? Is the Mailman delivering something? Gotta go see!! I'm still in my wretched, really old shorty night shirt, but I don't care. I run outside and meet the mail truck. To my wonderful surprise....there's a package!! Oh my....Yippee!! Is it from Karla? What is it? What's in it? I look at the return address and YES!! IT'S FROM KARLA!!! I run back in the house and head straight for the kitchen. Knife...I need a knife! Gotta open the box!! Where's my box cutting knife! OH NO!! Whew! There it is...Ok, package open.....
    Now, I run to the 2d floor....gotta see what's inside. Oh my! What a wonderful smell coming from the box! My head is spinning! I remember this smell! Fresh raked leaves........ahhhh....smells SOOOO good! Wish I could miniaturize (is that a word?) myself so I can jump in those leaves that are in there.

    Package just opened...

    I took out the top paper and the wonderful smell just permiated my senses....The card (handmade) is just too cute!

    Out comes the card to reveal these wondeful leaves. Oh my! Doesn't it smell soooo good?

    So, let's start taking things out and see what we find. There is a bag of candy, but the bag split...that's ok...I don't mind, those little pumpkins were just having fun sitting in all those leaves....
    [IMG]http://i112.photobucket.com/albums/n...e/PICT0505.jpg[/IMG]
    Ok, what else do I pull out? Oh my! A cute little bag! I wonder what could be in it??
    [IMG]http://i112.photobucket.com/albums/n...e/PICT0506.jpg[/IMG]
    Ahhhh....more signs of the season! Mark has done really well growing those gourds!!! They are just beautiful! Will be really pretty on my table with my table mat I made and the great smelling pumpkin candle I have. :)
    [IMG]http://i112.photobucket.com/albums/n...e/PICT0507.jpg[/IMG]
    What else can we find? Oh my! Something to go with the gourds! Are they the cutest little ears of corn?
    [IMG]http://i112.photobucket.com/albums/n...e/PICT0508.jpg[/IMG]
    I'm still pulling out the leaves...YES, I am smelling them. Love that smell! Isn't this one beautiful?
    [IMG]http://i112.photobucket.com/albums/n...e/PICT0509.jpg[/IMG]
    I gather my goodies...yes, I should have taken individual pics as they came out, but in my excitement, I forgot... See the little Rosie? I thought for sure, Rosie would be in there and there she is!! She might not be the REAL thing, but close enough for now. :) You can see the bag of pumpkins. Those will be yummy. Some cute napkins and some plates. See the little scarecrow? Her name is now Karla :) :)
    [IMG]http://i112.photobucket.com/albums/n...e/PICT0510.jpg[/IMG]
    Oh...It's not done! Look at this!! She didn't forget the yummy fabric! Isn't it too cute? I love it! Yes, I petted and snorted on it. It smells soo good! Oh yes...gotta snort new fabric! And home made blueberry preserves! That is going to taste sooo good! Should I share with the rest of the family? Hmmm......I might. And a cute little bottle of maple syrup. Will be just right for dinner tonight. I'm making pancakes! :) :)

    After everything was out of the box, Monique had to check it out.
    "Mom! You said there were treats! I don't see any treats! What are those smelly flat things in there! They crinkle when I touch them! I don't think I like that! Where are the treats?
    [IMG]http://i112.photobucket.com/albums/n...e/PICT0513.jpg[/IMG]

    "Well, no treats, so I guess I'll go check out my food dish."
    [IMG]http://i112.photobucket.com/albums/n...e/PICT0514.jpg[/IMG]

    Karla....THANK YOU SOOO MUCH!! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!! EVERYTHING IN THE BOX IS WONDERFUL!! I'LL BE SNORTING ON THAT SMELL FOR AS LONG AS I CAN!!

    I also have to thank Patti (Sandpat) who was in cahoots with Karla on this package. Thanks girl!!

    Thanks again sooo very much!!
    TONS OF HUGS!!!!

    Hey, I've got 90 zillion sweet gum balls in my yard I could send if you need more fall. Kick off your shoes and stomp on a couple of those and you will quickly get over the nostalgia for fall.

    Lordy, Lisa, used to have one of those. OUCH! :lol:

    TERRI, that is so special...so wonderful!!! :D
    I love it! :mrgreen:
    We never know what we will miss.
    I come on here and everyone all over the country talks about their leaves changing colors and such. Here in Florida, you have two kinds of leaves: live or dead.
    Your either blowing your nose, or raking up leaves and...blowing your nose, lol!
    Terri, I shall wave my mousie needle-wand and like Alice you shall be small enough for a wild and crazy jump in the leaves time!
    bibbidy bobbidy boo! :wink:

    I just think it was over the top of what she did!
    Well, she could have put Rosie in there, but I'll take the pictures on the card and the little stuffed Rosie. Oh, you push on it and it gallops and whinnys! Too cute!

    Ok, this is what happens when you leave a naughty little furry girl, corn and gourds alone together.
