Treats from Reilly

We got a surprise box in the mail on Thursday. It was from Reilly

 We've seen his mom's handmade cards on his blog before but never in person. 
 Her work is incredible!  This card is absolutely gorgeous!  There is so much detail! 
It's a keeper!

 Reilly also sent us a package of ginger snap treats.  He was shopping with his mom and was reminded of our stocked freezer full of CHOCOLATE gelato when it could have been GINGER flavor!
 Please open them quickly, mom!  We're starving to death here!
 They're delicious, Reilly.  Thank you so much!
 One of those was supposed to be for me, Mitch - you PIG!
Mitch thinks they're inspiration to help him learn "bang", Reilly!  We hope the ginger snaps do the trick!
Thank you so much for your generosity and thoughtfulness!

We love you~
Maggie and Mitch

Reilly's mom is really creative and clever and you've got her beautiful cards!
We're starving to death too, can we share your ginger snaps?

We have purchased cards from Reily's mom. She is amazing. Noms as well, eh?

We are so glad they arrived and that you enjoyed them. My Mom loves Ginger Snap cookies but can't have them anymore because of the sugar - so she knows what it is like to miss out on something you love. Have a wonderful weekend you two!

Yep, Reilly and his mom are fine. we got some of the cards too and everyone we sent them too have just loved them.

I like to just look at them sometimes and wish someone would send me one.

I like how they open up and BANG doggy pictures everywhere.

Gotta go,

We might even learn a new trick if we had ginger snaps. So great of Reilly to try to make up for the CHOCOLATE gelato! What a good friend.
