Woohoo!!!!! My first exchange

Happy Wednesday!!!

While I was taking a updated photo of Halloween Poster




I just happened to catch this...


Ding! Dong!

The UPS guy running away from me. He must of knew I was going to gripe at him for not being there this morning, lol
I always park my 4-runner in the garage, but I have the back full of things to take to the Goodwill. Which I should be gone already, so I can be back to pick up Kellie from the bus stop.

Kim and I did a personal Halloween exchange, being that we both felt unsure about out finishes.

Feast your eyes upon this fantastic Halloween ornie, I just love it! Kim! Thanks so much!!I love everything



Is that awesome or what?


Here is the whole kit and kaboodle that she also included

And look at this, it is just the sweetest thing
Her DS (3 yrs old) decorated the box in some artwork, how cool is that? I can't believe they stuck the label there, how rude!!! lol
So sorry for the dark photo's it is very dark and drizzly here today, different day, same story
This is what I sent her

Lizzie Kate made into a flatfold, you can visit her Blog to see the rest of it.


I better scoot now, so much to do.


Today is DH birthday. I am having friends and family over for pizza tonite.

You are just too funny! What a wonderful exchange - and her ornament is just beautiful - who is the designer?

And what a sweet little note from her little one!
