Guess what came in the Mail today?


For Sophie's birthday, Grandma gave her a butterfly garden. We decided we would wait until spring to order them so we could release them when the flowers were all out. We finally sent in the coupon for the company to send us our butterflies about 2 months ago and figured they would send them when it was best to do so. Well... we found a little box on the step and got excited when we saw what was written on the outside of the box.

Now we just have to wait and watch as our little larvae grow.

It will be fun to see our beautiful butterflies in a few weeks.

I Can't wait to see how this turns out. I keep seeing the commercials and want to try it myself. How fun!

We had so much fun doing this last year! We talked about doing it again this year. It really is a miracle to watch the change. Waiting while they were in their chrysalis was the hardest part.

Have fun!

How exciting! We just mailed our coupon on Tuesday and seeing your post has made us even more anxious get them. It's the perfect time of year.

I remember reading about Sonja's family doing this. I'm not usually one to follow the crowd, but I'm really thinking I need to do this too.
