Exploding Boxes for Cousins

HAPPY NEW YEAR!  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!  I know I sure did!  Mine was filled with so many little blessings and surprises.  You may have heard this a million of times, but Christmas for me, truly is more fun to give than to receive.  I believe that my children are starting to realize that too.  Especially my oldest, who this Christmas, wanted to give something to the 3 cousins that she is closest to.  They are all about the same age as her and have been there for her through out her ever changing life.  They have been her best friends and confidants.   What a joy and a blessing, as a parent, to stand back and watch the many memories that they have made together and will continue to make.  They all love the Lord, and encourage each other to do what is pleasing to Him.  Anyways, my oldest came to me a few months back and asked if I could help her make some Exploding boxes, for her to give to her cousins for Christmas.  Well, in all the craziness, we did manage to squeeze in a few days to get them done.  They turned out beautiful and I think each cousin loved them.  They were all different, and unique for each girl.  Plus, there were some special things that she put in them that were specific to them, weather it was memories, or silly little sayings that they have shared through the years. Each one beautiful, unique and special just like the cousin that received it!   This post is picture heavy!  But enjoy!
