Mail Call: Package

Who Loves Getting Packages?

Lanie, Melody, both, Xyra

Checking the Mail Box

It's my turn to get the mail. I wonder if there will be anything exciting? Most of the times there are bills or ads.
Ooooo! A PACKAGE! I wonder who it's from?
Let's see...Nevada!
It's from Gramma Enne and Opa Hans!

Hey, Melody! We got a package from Nevada.
Cool! I wonder what's in it?
Shall we open it?
You bet!
It's soft and wrapped in paper.
Oh, neat a new shirt!
I remember Gramma Enne telling us about their high school reunion. 
This is neat. I like the little peplum. Go try it on.


That's great. It's more of a dress than a shirt. Very cute.
We could wear leggings under it too.
Sure could.
I love the color.
Thank you, Gramma Enne and Opa Hans!

Xyra's Notes

The original item was a 3-6 mos onesie. Very cute. I asked my friend Lady Maree if she could use her seamstress skills to alter the onesie without changing the logo. She did a great job! She also altered the Coolspring dress Melody is wearing earlier in the post. Thank you, again, Lady Maree!

Best wishes,


  1. Getting packages is always fun, cute!

  2. Can Haley cross her legs? my piper who is also a madame Alexander can. I am not sure though if because of her age. Piper is the doll in the profile photo shes my accidental look alike doll.

    1. I had to try. Haley can cross her legs at the ankles, but it looks like they are crossed at the knees, just not bent.

    2. Thankyou for replying piper does it the same way. I forgot to mention piper and Haley have the same middle name.

  3. Aww the small package is so cute, did they mail it that way?

    1. Thank you. Glad you like it. No, the shirt actually arrived in different packaging; the one here is a prop for the blog. :)
