My First Birthday Package!, Part 3
(Parts 1 and 2)

Last but not least, Waffles and Mango sent us a cute turtle card! Tortles, hugs, and physics—we couldn’t love this card more!! I especially love all the green. I got so excited that I tried my very best to nom the deliciously green little turtle in the corner.

Our friends send the bestest packages! Thank you, thank you so much to Waffles, Mango, and your awesome mom!! We are so happy to be your shell friends! You have made my first birthday the best birthday ever, and we can’t thank you enough! <3

P.S. To all our friends: If you are not already, you should all follow pretty Mango at mangomusings and her big little brother Waffles at wafflesworld! They are the best!


A Package!, Part 3
(Parts 1 and 2)

I got the beautiful snuggle sack that my sweetie Mango made for me! It is perfect! I love it!!

I tried to nom it at first, but then Mommy told me it was for snuggles. It is so soft and comfy inside! Plus, it even smells like beautiful Mango! I am never coming out. Ever!


My First Birthday Package!, Part 2
(Part 1 and 3)

Waffles, Mango, and their awesome mom also sent me my very own name plate!! It has my name in big bold letters, three pretty tortles, and even sparklies! All hand-painted in beautiful colors! I was so excited that I tried to nom all three of the pretty tortles right away. Mommy is going to hang my beautiful new name plate right above my home where we can see it every day!

ellenkirkpatrick  replied to mangomusings:
“Thanks, Mango! It’s so lovely of you to respond so quickly to my questions. Please tell your mom how thoughtful I think she is, to ask about Sheldon. Now, I just need to find a way to trick Herman into eating her cuttlebone…”

I will be sure to tell mom for sure :}
Herman might only eat his cuttlebone when he needs the calcium. We only snack on ours when we need to and some days we eat a lot! I’m sure if you just leave on in his home, he’ll know what to do with it.


A Package!, Part 4
(Parts 1, 2, and 3)

I didn’t want to come out of my new snuggle cave, but then Mommy told me there was one more present in our package. Beautiful Mango sent me her very own Monkey to be my stuffie!! Isn’t she the sweetest, bestest tort ever? <3

I love Monkey! He is a great listener, just like Mango said. Plus, he is super soft, gives wonderful hugs, and keeps me comfy during naps!


A Package!, Part 2
(Part 1 here)

Waffles and Mango's amazingly talented mom gave us the beautiful painting she made of Lunchbox! The painting looks just like him, and it is even more beautiful in person. Mommy is happy that she can see Lunchbox first thing in the mornings again, and I am happy that now I can tell Lunchbox all about the exciting new leaves I found on the deck.


A Package!, Part 6
(Parts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5)

Waffles, Mango, and their awesome mom actually sent us one more present than they realized: The box! It is such a lovely red color and so much fun to run around on! It even has edges that are perfect for peering over!


A Package!, Part 5
(Parts 1, 2, 3, and 4)

Last but not least, Waffles, Mango, and their wonderful mom sent us a lovely note! Pretty Mango thinks I am the most handsome tort ever!! If torties could blush, I would be beet red! <3

Thank you, thank you, Waffles, Mango, and Tort Mom of Awesome!! Your presents are all absolutely amazing, and we are so happy and excited every time we look at them! Thank you for being such fabulous friends! <3
