"MarcusandIla" came to my house today!! We hung out and talked, made dinner together, had a little wine (not involved with the swap process), and had a great time. I love them both! --I discovered that my camera isn't working so for the swap I have to use my cell phone.
This is what was waiting for her:
Ila about to have some of our chili:
Us together: (my eyes look evil like they are all black)
Ila getting ready to open some presents:
Ila opening her Day 12:
Me with part of my Day 12:
Ila opening her Day 2: (I had to wrap them in a translucent tablecloth so I had her open it today)
Ila wondering what the heck a bunch of cups are doing in the shape of a ball: (sparkleball)
My table was only cleaned off for about 20 minutes and now look at it!
