Stamps, anyone?

In anticipation of Pumpkin's birthday next Tuesday (I know! Two years already! Dang!), we got a package yesterday from Grandpa and Grandma Kluges.

It had 94 stamps on it.
I counted.
That's a lot of stamps.

When I saw how they covered almost two sides of the box (along with the customs form and everything), I had to know just how many there were. I guess the postage label machine at their post office must have been broken.

I don't know how long it took them to stick them all on, but Pumpkin was MORE than happy to peel stamps off it for a LONG time.

Yay! Presents and an occupying activity!

And once again the packaging triumphs over the actual gift!

I'll be on vacation the actual day of, so Happy Birthday to Pumpkin!

Misterpie had an uncle who always bought the fanciest stamps the post office had and plastered them all over the gift box, too, so the kids could have the stamps. (and also because he's a bit weird, but that's another story.)
