Faraway Friends

We recently received a package from Norway. Can't say that's EVER happened before! Sawyer, who had been studying different celebrations of Christmas around the world, wanted to know if the package was from Sweden's "Tomten." He knew it wasn't the "Santo Clos" from Mexico, as they're too far away.
It was loaded with these cute cookie cutters (notice TWO pigs - reminiscent of olden times when a peasant family's wealth was tied up in its precious pig), and a box of Norwegian gingerbread.

It was perfect! And delicious! And we don't even know these folks!
Thank you for our care package. And that you thought of the boys. They had a blast making the cookies. And eating them.

Bro. B's sister in Oslo. I guess we sometimes talk about the boys and she feels she knows them well also.
