We Got a Surprise Visitor Today

Imagine our surprise when we opened our mailbox today and found this!


Our niece, Scout, sent Flat Stanley to stay with us for two weeks, but I think he's planning to stay longer from the size of his suitcase!

The first thing we had to do was get a scarf for Flat Stanley since it was really cold here today.




Then Flat Stanley went to Lowes with us. He looks like he is pretty warm in his scarf, but he wanted to go inside and shop with us anyway.



Later, we went to Kohls. Flat Stanley helped us buy some silverware, but he's a pretty smart shopper because he used some coupons.


Flat Stanley was pretty tired after his trip here all the way from Wyoming, so he's resting up now because we have a lot of adventures planned for him.

Aren't you guys going to take Flat Stanley anywhere FUN? Maybe a restaurant...he's looking a little thin!

That's one handsome looking Flat Stanley! Have your dogs met him yet?

LOVE this so much!

My 9yo went through a HUGE Flat Stanley phase and I sort of miss him. Do you think he'ld like to come to Canada for a visit?

We'ld gladly show him the sites, take a few photos and then send him home again :).

Hey Flat Stanley! You are going to love Uno Acres. Hope you get to see the eggs hatch. And I'm sure you will get the chance to "enjoy" the construction as much as your hosts do! :)

I think Stanley needs to go out to eat, too. Cyndi's right. He's too thin. And I'm sure Stanley would LOVE to play with the dogs!!
And maybe he could help you organize something or play in your new kitchen. :-)

I thought you should know that Stanley IM'd me to tell me that while he appreciates being so sharply dressed (great scarf!)he feels his new look is being wasted at Lowe's. He said something about a carnival....
