Pics from latest ball packing party

Last week we descended on the Roles household to deflate and pack up many boxes to send out to soldiers. We had ourselves a little ball packing party and I took some pics to share. Eric's sister Jacki and cousin, Vicky and her fiance Josh all helped out Trudy and I. Even our puppy Qase helped out some! We had a lot of fun packing up the boxes and deflating those balls!

Trudy and I mailed the boxes on Saturday lunchtime; we had 10 boxes to send out. Luckily the post office wasn't very busy so we didn't inconvenience too many people with our LARGE items to mail. We did get some funny looks carting the 10 boxes into the post office!! And we still have 20 boxes to send!
