Do you see that look of anticipation and excitement?
It kills me every time her eyebrows shoot up into her bangs.
I had to post this entire series (albeit a series of iPhone shots) because this gift that came in the mail for Q was so unique, so thoughtful, so heartfelt and so special.
Our blog friend April noticed that Q loves her Keroppis, and went on a hunt for Keroppi paraphenalia left over from her school days. She packaged them all up (each individually gift-wrapped, mind you!), included several origami critters and notes, and sent them off to us.
The origami-folded letter to Q was of particular fascination for her. So exciting...a secret note just for her!
Each little wrapped parcel was a new treasure to unearth!
A little Keroppi vanity case with mirror and comb sent her into raptures!
But the multi-purpose Keroppi notebook with stickers, stamps and tracing paper was probably her most precious treasure of all.
She admired each and every origami object one at a time..
...and wanted to pin this ribbon to her clothing.
The origami ladybug was an object of great reverence and respect.
Thank you, April!! You've made a little heart so glad.
