Our Very Full Mailbox

With an average stack of mail at our house looking like this lately....
...I think we've become the US Postal Service's favorite house.  More often than not in the last two weeks, the mailman has had to come to our door with the mail because it didn't all fit in our mailbox. 

We've got cards, postcards, and a random moose from 19 states and 3 countries.   Thanks to my sister, Kristina, cards from California far outnumber all of the rest of the states, but Utah, Colorado, Virginia, and Texas are coming in with respectable numbers as well!   We are truly in awe at so many people's kindness in sending birthday greetings to someone they don't even know. 

Thank you for helping make Spencer's birthday fun and special!    He is excited to see the mail each day and is getting antsy to start opening them in a few days!  :)

UPDATE: 

Thank you to all who brightened my birthday today with cards, phone calls, treats, and flowers.  It's been a long time since I've had that much attention on my birthday and it made me  feel like a kid again!  :)

Glen and Spencer are very, very happy about the Caps (the DC NHL team) winning their playoff game tonight!

Spencer is feeling fairly good and enjoying his time at home!

Be sure to check out the Spencer Birthday Blood Drive Facebook page my brother created.   The idea is to get as many people to donate blood in Spencer's name as possible before his birthday on Monday.  Check my previous post for details on how to make it happen. 

Not that I'm surprised, but I've already gotten notes from a couple of people who have donated blood in Spencer's name already...we have awesome friends!!!!   THANK YOU!!!!!!
