Stocking Swap

So this year I participated in the Stocking Swap organized by Tara at The Well-Rounded Woman. I was So excited when my package came (a day or two before Christmas) to discover that I was recieving stocking stuffers from Tara herself! I followed the instructions and Kayleigh and I carefully put the unopened box under the tree for Leland to stuff my stocking with on Christmas eve.

And look what I got! Some post it notes (and really, who, in a house full of people can NOT find use for post its?), root beer flavored lip gloss, nail polish, a file, a beaded bracelet (lots of jewelry this Christmas, is that a hint?), some lovely note cards with a "K" (that would be for Kathryn!) embossed on the corner, some Avon lip balm, AND a dark chocolate bar. Yum. (I'm hoarding that while we eat up the cheaper, not good for us chocolate first!). The penguin card in the corner had a lovely note from Tara. I was really touched by her thoughtfulness and LOVED knowing that I'd have a stocking full of gifts on Christmas morning. (Leland tries hard every year but you know..)

Thanks, Tara, it was a lot of fun and I can't wait to do it again next year!

Oh, that sounds like fun, and the items were very cool. I have to keep that idea in mind for next year.

Happy New Year!

Glad you had a good Christmas, and what a blessing to have the gifts delivered to your house!! Praying each day is better than the one before it. :)
God bless,
Millie and Colin too :)
