Hump Day Package

Sister’s Hawkins “Hump Day”

It is hard to believe that on May 11, 2011 Emily will have been out for 9 months and her mission will be half over. In honor of this milestone we are putting a “Hump Day” package together for her. Since Emily will be half way through her mission, we will be sending her a package of “half” things such as half a dozen cookies, half a package of M&M’s, half a box of fruit snacks, half a chocolate bar, etc. But most importantly we would like to include lots of letters from her family and friends. But in order to follow the “Half way” theme, these letters will be sent to her in “halves”. So if you would like to include a letter in Sister Hawkins Hump Day package, here are the directions you will need to follow:

  - Only use one piece of regular lined school paper or one piece of 8 ½ x 11 typing paper

  - You may write, type, or draw on one or both sides of the paper

  - You may use any color ink, markers or crayons you would like

  - Decorating with stickers is also allowed and would be fun (Emily loves stickers and often decorates her envelopes with them)

  - Mail or bring your letter to me by no later than April 30th

Once I have received all the letters, I will cut them in half vertically (hot dog style) and then mix them all up. Emily will receive a stack of letter halves along with a couple rolls of clear tape. She will have to match all her letters and tape them together in order to read them.

If you do not have time to get a letter in the mail to me, you may email me a letter for Emily and I will print it out for you. I will play with the font style and color to try and add variety to your letter.

Emily had a great time helping me put a “Hump Day” package together for her older brother when he was on his mission and so she is very excited to now receive her very on hump day package.

If you have any questions you can call me at 403-6546 or email me at jhawkins3398@gmail.com

This mission is the hardest thing she has ever done. She knows she would not have made it this far without her Father in Heaven and her family and friends. She cherishes every letter, note, and card she receives. Thank you all for your prayers and encouragement.
