I Didn´t Forget, Honest!

Posted on November 23, 2007 - Filed Under Friends |

The Autumn Swap that was held by Are We There Yet Mom? back in August was a lot of fun. I received my package last week from Jennifer and took tons of photos . . . with my old camera. We bought the new one and my dear hubby erased everything on the old one, figuring I had already passed it onto the computer. :( So I don´t have the original photos to show, but I can assure you, it was AMAZING! Thanks, Jennifer, for all the thought you put into the package, it was just like Halloween, without the trick or treating!

Some of the stuff in the package:

The softest, fuzziest sleep socks ever from Bed and Bath . . . . I wear them every night to keep my feet toasty while watching TV!

So much candy, you wouldn´t believe it! There were dozens of gummy monsters, vampires and skeletons, Lifesavers, both hard and gummy, suckers, gum . . . Halloween Peeps, it really was like Halloween! Irving ate up all the gum, Dorian and his cousin got several good sugar highs off the monster candies and Mama kept the Life Savers for herself. ;)

But it wasn´t all edible, Jennifer also tucked a really cool magnetic calendar with a matching pen into the package (perfect for my new fridge!),

a pair of Halloween socks, a Halloween tea towel, a really cute pumpkin cup for Dorian, (maybe it wasn´t for him, but he claimed it anyway), and a spooky notepad.

There were a LOT of goodies in that one box. I was impressed and we are enjoying them all! Thanks again, Jennifer.

    I have no idea why it took you so long to get it because I mailed it before Halloween! :-( Sorry about that!!! But, glad you received it & liked everything, all the same! Aren’t those socks THE BEST??? I have several pair & just had to share them with you. I’m glad that everyone in the family was able to benefit from some of the goodies!

    Hope you & your family had a great Thanksgiving! Have a wonderful weekend!

    Jennifer :-)

    Jennifer, it´s really common for things to take forever to get here. My mom sent a package about a month before Dorian was born and it arrived when he was 5 months old! So, it has nothing to do with you . . . the postal system down here is a bit odd. And thanks again. Those socks are incredible!

    Looks like a fun package!
    I wondered if you had a new camera. You’re posting so many more pics now, and they look so good! If you posted about it, I missed it somehow.
