We received from Hailey AND Sarah (who in the Christmas spirit decided to send to both round robin partners)

From Hailey:
First up, a pop-up card (Chloe loved it and thought it was funny as she had made one, too)

A very good drawing of animals - Chloe thought the cat in a Santa hat was awesome.

Kitty cat felt ring and necklace on a string - was worn to school yesterday along with all the other felt accessories - dog bracelet and hair clip, and a turtle pin.

The ornament - a handy reindeer.  That's such a cute idea - I forget hands are more than for just making turkeys!

From Sarah -
A very cool fridge magnet.

White glove ornament.

The card - Chloe loved the felt decoration, she said it was so cute!

We had a great time swapping and Chloe truly loved her packages.  She had the most fun and I think I may have created a monster.  Although now she's nervous about whether her stuff will be liked!  Bless her heart, having swap anxiety at 8 years old!

OMG - the kids have outDONE themselves. What a happy household I have tonight!!

First of all, let me just say that none of us have ever received a gift from out of the country, so this:

blew our minds!

Both kids got adorable pop-up cards.

And here we are with our FAB ornaments!

Sydney decided her ornament needed to go on her special tree in her room. It definitely matches!

Dylan got..wait for it...

He is so excited. He'd never seen them before, but his dad and I have been trying our skills (okay, okay, he gets them back now...) and now he can't WAIT to prove himself on them!! I had a set years ago that my brother and I practiced with daily......Evidently those skills did not carry over into my adult years because I've made a great fool of myself already -- and with much more to come, I'm sure!

Sydney has received a set of handmade pink and black pom-poms!! You would have thought she had died and gone to heaven!

Thank you SO much, Nyssa, Kayla, and Nicole! What a great way to end today!

**Side note...All of my pics are sideways. Sorry about that. =\ **

That button tree is really neat, what a cool idea! The Mario stuff is pretty sweet, so is that tin!

We received from Don'tdresslikeapril's girls today. Sorry for the picture quality, my cell doesn't take great pics and it was quite dark outside.

my girls each got pretty painted boxes with shells inside, and cute little beaded hair clips. This is Sylvia's, her clip has little bells.

here is the tree ornament for Sylvia.

this is Clementine's box and hair clip. Her's has a little heart at the end.

here is the ornament, the yarn around the star is a pretty blue/green wool. Both girls hung their ornaments of the tree right away! Thank you Gwendolyn and Clementine.

These are the cards from April's girls.

April has already received the package from my girls for Gwendolyn and (her) Clementine. Unfortunately I forgot about taking pictures until everything was wrapped! I only have pictures of the cards.

I hope April is able to post pictures of the rest of the package soon.

A sonic screwdriver! Jealous ^_^ Super adorable stuff from everyone. Maddock received but hasn't opened his package yet.

We opened this afternoon as they were just too excited. 
The  card is made out of Legos!

I've been told it's the best Christmas card ever. (Jack Skellington + legos = 0-0! *Yeahhh* dance.)

An awesome vinyl reindeer ornament

and a Cars t-shirt.

This was his "cool dude" face.

There was also a map in the box of Michigan and the boys promptly spread it out to check out all the interesting places.

Fantastic package! Maddman was thrilled.

Hailey finally got to open her package; she's been too busy until now!

She really likes the two things she got. She didn't get a card, which she's pretty disappointed about since she worked so hard on the one she sent. But the two things she did get she likes, so that's good. She hung the mitten on her mini tree in her bedroom.

And now for pictures...

Opening the package...

Kayla and Nyssa were soo excited to receive their package on Tuesday but we have been super busy so I haven't had a chance to put up photos until now. Sorry about that mjnovak & company!

Here are the lovely (stamped? stenciled?) cards tha Sydney and Dylan made:

The adorable ornaments they sculpted:

Finally the really coo bracelets. I don't know what kind of material they are made from but they are very pretty (and in the colours the girls like best) and they are flexible!

Thanks so much all! My daughters and I loved their first swap:D

Nisey received her awesome gifts from sloth003 and Felix a couple of days ago, but we were having computer problems.

First she got this cute card.

Some nice bags Felix made Minus one, for Nisey has already put that one to good use.

Then what is left of some yummy chocolate they sent.

Then the super cool necklace and bracelet.

And the very adorable button Christmas tree ornament.

Thank you very much sloth003 and Felix for making Nisey's first swap a great one!! Cheesy

Eep! A trip to the land of no internet and the addition of a puppy means I'm long overdue to post pictures of what Kaidon received. He loved everything!

The game was a big hit and has been played several times.

Our oldest son received his package from CraftNewb and her very awesome daughter, and he is so stoked on what he got!

Here's him showing off both items- a super rad steampunk box and an ornament that looks so good on our white tree (sorry for the bad pics, I can't get the hang of this camera):

A closeup of them:

Thank you again so much, this swap has been a lot of fun!

Benn received a wonderful package from Zombie_Queen's son.

Here are the card and ornament.  Love the Lego tree!

Look at how beautiful the trees on the card are!

Some Peeps Snowmen that sent my Goose jabbering ninety miles an hour

The shirt that Azriel made which was put on immediately while munching on some awesome Rock Candy.

One thrilled Goose, he loves robots as you can tell by the wall decor! 
Thank y'all so much!  He loves all of it!

We received from Belladune and her son Cheesy Cass was overjoyed with her packaged and tore right into it. She loves everything!

Decklan created the cutest little snowman ornament and a really nice Penguins of Madagascar card.

Next Cass discovered matching necklaces and bracelets for herself and her American Girl doll, plus they came in a cool Christmas pouch! (You can see the pouch in the pic above)

Thanks for a wonderful swap!
