Ummm...I don't understand. Aren't things being sent to Texas? And then wouldn't she ship to an APO (or similar) box? It's only oversees you have to declare for customs.

Or did I miss something?

By the way, for things oversees (actually, anything non-US that is), you also have to be sure to go the right post office! At least around here, you are supposed to take them to the counters in grocery stores, on campus, other stores, etc. If you do, they don't know what to do and don't process it properly. DH was told to pay only the US rate on a package to Australia, for instance, and we just thought it was cheaper than expected. Until it was returned for postage two days later. Then, after he took it back to the same place, straightened that out, I mentioned it to someone...and then learned about the customs forms they didn't have him fill out either. She said they only take international packages at the two real post offices in town. (It hasn't been returned this time, so I'm kind of wondering if she'll get it or not.....)
