Did you really eat his Zebra cakes? Well, like I already told you, they would have been mush when they got there anyway, you're just saving him the mess, LOL

I told him that and I was just going to send them, but then I got worried the bag would pop and the cakes would be all over the book I was sending and the other things... lol So I told him he wasn't getting them. The kids were happy! hahaha

I did the same thing with the girl scout cookies. I had the box packed and ready to go and decided the chocolate might make a mess so I opened it and we ate them. He is so PT crazy right now, he didn't care anyway.

Oh no, lol my husband has a thing about his Girl Scout Cookies..he always reminds me not to forget to send them. Last time we sent over 500 boxes (we had GS Troops helping collect). They all enjoyed them, lol. In fact one of the commanders who was in our unit last time, who is now in a different unit but same battalion told me not to forget him this go round, lol.
