"WE ARE YOUR FAMILY AND WE LOOOOVE YOU and I sent you COOOKIESSS so you can't bitch at me about sending you a tin of your familyyy from my birthhhhhhday!!! Remember my birthday? In Napa? The happiest day of my life because I was with you kids??** I filled it with cookies and wrapped chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin separately because I LOVE YOU! Now put them in the freezer so they don't go bad. And remember to call me every time you look at your family tin. We're watching over you. Ha! ha! Just kidding. But don't do anything bad because I will find out about it! I always do!!!"
*please don't stop sending cookies. or disown me.
** I later found out this actually was her justification for sending me a face tin of my family.
