We had a Christmas tin each of Candy Bar Cookies, M&M Cookies, and Dreamsicle Bars. And the recipe for each treat was attached to each tin. They were all yummy, but the family favorite were the Dreamsicle bars (close-up photo attached). Even our Dog Devin got some yummy treats!

Day 6- Craft day for the family-
I got a great polymer clay kit which includes 8 packages of neutral colored clay, a project book, and 3 different sculpting tools. I have only minimal experience with polymer clay so this will be fun to play with. I have only done one other polymer clay item before this swap, and have been wanting to try it more. I also got a needle roll the house the crochet hooks I want to learn to crochet with.
My girls each got the cutest little apron in a print which I love
! What's not to love about pink monkeys! My girls loved them too and immediately wanted to wear them to eat lunch. They also got 2 sets of playdoh, a favorite around here.Day 5
-I received 2 Starbucks Coffee Mugs and Candy Cane Hot chocolate. the hot chocolate was consumed within about 20 minutes of opening the package. lol It was delicious. I love Starbucks, though my husband calls it fivebucks, so I love the mugs. I only drink frou frou coffee. There was also a voucher for a free Tall Regular coffee.
Then there was a hat, scarf, and a pair of gloves. The yarn is gorgeous. I believe that my partner said it is Soy Wool... I need to google it so I know what that is. I have been warned that if I was them, they will felt. Here is a picture of me in them and a bonus shot of my youngest Katie. She is my accessories girl and she stole the hat, walking around the house with it on for a good 2 hours!Day 4 was Jammies Day
- There was a pair of flannel PJ pants for every member of the family. The girls tore open their packages and had the pants on with in 2 minutes of opening them. They insisted on eating breakfast in them, so they were in the wash an hour later. lol Karis's had cupcakes, Katie's had swirly circles, mine had elephants, and my DH's had a sort of outdoorsy theme. Lovely...Day 3-
Three AWESOME shopping totes. They are a nice dark denim with decorative lining fabric. I think they could even be reversible if I want them to be. Two of them are huge and the third, while still large, is smaller. The one that has the decorative fabric out, that fabric is very special to me. It is of Russian architecture. I spent a year in Russia years ago and it is one of my most favorite places...Day 2-
2 Crocheted blankets for my girls. I admit, I let them open them on day 3! Katie, my youngest has been carrying hers around the house ever since opening it, and has slept with it at night as well. Katie's blanket has green accent yarn, and Karis' has pink accent yarn. They are SOO soft and we love them.Day 1- An AWESOME Couch Blanket
This great couch blanket has a navy fleece backing to it and a patchwork front. If I am not mistaken, the fabric is Anna Maria Horner and the cupcakes are Martha Negley for Kaffe Fasset. The fabric is gorgeous and bright. There are a couple of shots of some of my favorite squares. I couldn't really take photos of all the squares I really like...wait a minute, I already did. It is the all over shot. The package said that it was for the whole family, but I'm not sharing this baby! lol It really is made from some gorgeous fabric and makes me happy just looking at it...Thank you, Thank You, Thank You for all of your hard work and the time you put into my items. It was a fine job of stalking. You were a great partner.
