Mom and Dad. I love you. You are both so amazing! Yesterday I had an early Christmas. I got home from school and Erkki said my package was here! He told me it was at customs because Mom had put gummy vites in it and I needed to go down to the harbor and declare them! I waited until Leena got home from work, we ate dinner and then Leena and I drove to the harbor. After getting lost in the harbor building and taking a SCARY lift up to the 4th floor we found the customs office. The lady laughed when I showed her what kind of vitamins were inside my package; she said they were fine! I could barely carry the package down the lift to the car it was so big! I almost fell over when I tried to carry it up to my bedroom when we got home! I loved and needed EVERYTHING in the package! OH MY GOD AND I HAVE REESES!!!!! THE FINNISH EXPERIENCE IS COMPLETE! HAHA! HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE!
