I received a wonderful package from Troublet! I knew it was at the apartment complex office, but every time I asked she said it wasn't there. I finally asked if I could go look with her. Found it immediately. Grr. I thought about telling her how much frustration and anger she put me through, DOESN'T SHE KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE TO WAIT FOR A SWAP PACKAGE?!?!?! Boo.
Anyways, here is my amazing package!
I raced home to my package, ripped it open and found all my lovely swap items packaged in Christmas wrapping paper (I adore wrapping paper, and I even save it for collages, re-wrapping, etc. I'm a nerd!)
The first package I ripped open my lovely boy was like "ooo can we use it now? It smells good" I of course had to tell him it's for Christmas time! SO basically the day after thanksgiving!
A Cinnamon Hot Pad! It smells amazing.
Next I opened my snowflake ornaments! We are in dire need of Christmas ornaments for our Christmas tree and I love snowflakes! I don't know however how she got them to stay stiff, I stared at it for at least 5 minutes before the boy said, "okay, come back to it, I want to see what else is in there"
The gingerbread man was in there! He's so adorable, and another ornament
He looks good enough to eat! (If I wouldn't get a mouth full of stuffing!
Last but certainly not least! I opened it and the boy said "Yes, a calendar you have to put candy in for me to eat!" Which is what I thought too UNTIL I saw the cards that went into it! Gah!
It's a calendar with 25 days for Christmas with cards that go in each slot containing questions on the other side! I can't wait for Christmas in my classroom so I can hang it up! I'm a writing teacher, so I will be able to ask these questions everyday and some days they will even get a treat! I can't wait! I showed it to my teacher buddies when I got to school this morning (setting up my classroom today, haven't started yet though, TG)
