When I saw the box sitting on the table where my husband had set it, it occurred to me that it wasn't a very big box to hold what I knew to be inside.
That right there scared me a little bit, already.
Then I picked it up and I could hear things knocking together inside.
Um - not a good sign, right?
It was also dented - a little smashed on one corner.
(I am not showing you all of the pictures here.)

When I carefully CUT open the top of the box and lifted it open, this is what I saw:

I absolutely could not believe my eyes.

And I am very, VERY happy that they made it here safely.
Yes, I surely am.
But not too happy with the person who mailed them.
