Thank you secret pal and another nice gift

Earlier this week we got a note from our friends in Orlando Jan and Todd, who have an online book store. As they went through their books, look what they found and sent it to us to keep in LynnMaries memory box! How very thoughtful. She made a comment that they may not be able to send a quilt square but the card looks like a quilt, so at least they are using the theme!





After an emotionally challenging day for me, I arrived home to see a box. With 3 adults living here, I was hoping it was for me and it was!!! To my surprise, one of my secret pals ( April DTC) sent me a box with cute stuff. I got an encouraging note, the famous China ultrasound pic, a soft blankey (LynnMarie's first blankie) and 2 very cool books. As you know, I love kids books! Secret Pal,if you read this I love it all! The books are so cute. They are the kind I would buy for other people but never for myself..You are too thoughtful..We must have pictures now so here you go!

What a nice surprise to get such cute gifts!! You truly deserve those cute things,that's for sure. I didn't participate in the Secret Pal with our DTC group but now I am wishing I would have signed up. Oh well, I will just enjoy seeing what all you get. You are off to a great start already.

As a quilter... I love that card! I am doing Hope's Bai Jai Bei in all hearts!

I haven't seen those books before! I will have to scout them out on Amazon.com...

From a mom lucky enough to have a son, there is nothing more rewarding than sharing books with your kids. My son is 11 now, an avid and accomplished reader, yet we still keep one book going that we read together.

WOF!!! Go next year! Tell me how you like it! You will NOT regret it.

Aren't the secret pal gifts such a nice surprise? I know they are coming each month, but somehow am still happily surprised when I come home and they are here. I really like the Red Blanket book (we don't have the other one yet) and the blanket is very cute.
