The Reveal…

After so many difficult days with the computer and the flu we have the long anticipated contents of the lovely package from Hawaii. Inside our package from babybug and mamabug were pretty wrapped packages in our favorite color green!

Inside the MiniSwap Package from Hawaii



How clever our swapmates are… George’s Box of Sunshine – isn’t this the best idea!

Inside George’s Box of Sunshine were many envelopes with detailed descriptions of each of their contents.

George’s favorite part of his box were the crab and the sea turtle “Honu”. He likes putting them in the back of his play dump-truck and gives them a ride around the livingroom.

These are shells from one of the beaches of Oahu… some of them have holes “Puka” – we think they’re beautiful.

Some more shells collected from the beach of Shark Cove. We’ve been assured that there were no sharks… we were scared a little bit.

The best gift from our swapmates was this lovely “Vana” and “Vana” spikes. They’re poisonous when they’re alive and safe when they’re like this… isn’t it gorgeous?

We received a special postcard (three more are on their way) and an envelope to keep them in. Look another “Honu”!

I was really excited about the bag. Look at the fabric – isn’t it wonderful? Not to mention the sewing is absolutely perfect. Handmade by mamabug! It’s the perfect size for carrying all our errand essentials. Georgie likes to carry it for me too.

And Mochiko flour and a Mochi cookbook. We’ve never had any Mochi before and thought it would be super fun to try so we made the Custard Mochi. We love it!!!

Mochi Cookbook and Mochiko Flour

Boy oh boy… Kimi Balls. These are very deceptive. I thought it would be great to give Georgie some and that would be that… um, no. I have to dole these out (at least until I can find a source) as a special dessert treat after dinner. He points and screams for them if he sees the bag now.

Kimi Balls

Do you think he likes them?

I have to tell you that this has been THE BEST swapping experience I’ve had in a long time. It’s nice we have so many things in common. We feel truly special to have had such a wonderful swapmates. Thank you babybug and mamabug. We look forward to getting to know you better and staying in touch.
