Someone stole your what?!?! AND a mini Eric update

Eric will probably kill me for posting this story but I just couldn't help myself! So Eric called me on Monday while we were driving back from Orange County. We were talking about care packages and this is how the conversation went:

ME: "So has anyone asked you for anything I sent you?"

Eric: "No"
(paused for a couple seconds)
"But someone stole my Twinkies"

ME: "What?"

Eric: "Yea, someone stole my Twinkies"

ME: "But you don't even like Twinkies and I didn't send you any."

Eric: "I know but Joel sent me some. And the other day I was sitting on my cot, pulled out my box of Twinkies, opened one and took a bite. Then I got up, came back and they were GONE!!!"

ME: "Seriously?!?"

Eric:"Yup, even the half eaten one..."

ME: quietly laughing, not sure what to say

So there you have it! There is a Twinkie bandit in Eric's tent :) I love you boo and couldn't help but share this story! I had a good laugh and continue to tell everyone who will listen to it. I also included some new pictures Eric emailed me

Some of the village families
Eric with an interpreter not paying attention
Eric with a copy of the newspaper from his home town of Chetopa, Kansas, Population 500. They will be posting this in the newspaper soon :)
Eric sharing his paper with an Afghan Soldier

That's pretty much all that's going on besides my non-stop reading! I love and miss you Eric
