Christmas in July Swap!

I’ve really enjoyed blogging since I started up again in January and a big part of it is the new sense of community. I miss 20-something Bloggers something fierce at times but I have found that by digging around and following different blogs I’m getting to know more bloggers from around the world. And I get to participate in fun swaps like the 3rd Annual Christmas in July Gift Exchange!

Whenever we get a box in the mail Sadie immediately asks if its for her. This time I was happy to be able to say yes!

We were paired up with Emily & Owen (who’s blog I don’t know and can’t find!) who sent Sadie the best package! I gave some suggestions of what to get Sadie when I signed up but I also love that Emily threw in some educational things as well.

Please also embrace Sadie’s bedhead and pajamas. I didn’t want to wait to take the photos anymore and she was begging to open the “special presents.” It’s how we roll in this household, just go with it.

The first thing Sadie opened was for me – thanks Emily! How did she know about my mug/coffee obsession? Hahah. I love it and have used it a bunch already.

After opening my gift Sadie got down to business opening the rest!

Sadie loved everything! The water balloons and the magic grow capsules were probably the two favorites but she’s also loved the lacing shapes, has drawn all over our deck with the chalk and has been frustrated at not winning at Memory (hee hee.)

We also were paired with Meghan & Noah and I had so much fun shopping for his box and couldn’t help but throw in some stuff for Meghan! We were paired up for the Snail Mail Exchange earlier this year so I laughed out loud when I saw I was paired up with her again!
