Gifts From Canada

14 May

I met Jennui a long time ago on flickr. Her adorable daughter Charlotte was wearing this cute pirate tee one time and I thought it was awesome, so I told her so. She, in turn, told me she would send it to me when Char grew out of it, and she did, plus she sent other treasures.

Jen sent us a whole box of fantastic items, but here are our favorites.

Like these adorable bunny Chucks. If you know nothing else about my daughter, please know that she loves all things furry, but most especially bunnies. As soon as she saw these shoes she flipped out an insisted I put them on her. They are at least three sizes too big, but I humored her. She looked like a hobbit and couldn’t walk in them, so I tried to take them off. This was not to be tolerated and she threw what my husband and I now refer to as The Great Bunny Shoe Tantrum of ’11. We have since hid them from her because if she so much as sees these shoes she goes apeshit. 

This is the face she made when I asked her to say “cheese.”


I love these notes you’re supposed to leave for the babysitter. It’s useful, but also clever and funny.

How cute is this onesie from the 2010 Winter Olympics?

I will root for any country that creates such cute cartoons.

Thank you so much, Jen. Internet friends like you are a wonderful thing to have.
