When I went to the post office to pick up my package I was very excited and as soon as I saw the packaging my eyes went all googly : )
|I LOVE smiley faces!|
|Merry Christmas Dear Stephanie : )|
|We are ready for the holidays : ) plus we cut out this lil tree drawing and it is now hanging on Miguelito's bedroom wall!|
The package was so pretty and right away I could see that Stephanie had really put her heart into it. I picked the package up early in the morning and had to wait until the afternoon when Miguelito came out of school to be able to open the package. What an exciting surprise and wonderful way to end his day.
|Our ornaments : )|
|Miguelito's little sock puppet ornament called "Sonic", and my beautiful Mom ornament!|
|My beautiful ornament and Sonic : )|
This is what we sent Stephanie and Zac:
|Miguelito's postcard to Zac, a little felt snowman bucket,holiday lollipops,santa chocolates,mood pencils, do it yourself ornaments.|
|Christmas card for Stephanie and her boys : ), Hand painted ornament, New York key-chain with her name, Christmas decoration,and a True Blood drink : )|
The ornament I chose for Stephanie had a hand painted "Noche Buena Flower" a Mexican flower that comes out in December and it represents that the holiday season is here. It's used in Christmas and is used as a Christmas symbol. In the US it's known as the poinsettia : )
I am so happy that her package arrived safely and that she loved everything. You can read more about her package here.
I can't think of a better way to start the holiday season then to receive such a pretty and thoughtful package in the mail. Plus the most beautiful thing I got out of this swap was a new friend : )
Thank you Stephanie : )
And a million thanks to Micaela for organizing such a fun swap and for partnering me up with such a beautiful girl : )
