We received! Thank you chinarockfishakm for the beautiful quilt and appliqued shirt!

This face says, "What do you mean Daddy went to work without waking me up first?!"

But the blanket and pillow brought out the sunshine after the storm!

I *love* the colors she used. All the blankets I have are delicate colors...nice, but this one really POPS! The back is a brilliant cobalt blue. Just gorgeous!

She also sent a package of baby spoons that my wee one thought was the greatest toy ever. She spent about an hour playing with them when the box first arrived! And she included some delicious baby snacks.

Sorry I didn't get pictures posted right away...this past weekend was INSANE! I'm especially sorry to chinarockfishakm who got kind of anxious about her package going astray! We really love everything and this has been a great swap--my first one. :-)

We got our package today from igboyloirb -My little one was so excited to get her package when she woke up from her nap:

Opening it up:

A "Y"! - She knew it was her name as soon as she saw this - lol!

A "S"!

Looking in the bag:

The Thomas Skirt:

My Little Pony fabric (she demanded a dress ASAP - lol!)

Everything, including the great felt food - pastas, meatballs and fried eggs:

Thank you so much!  We're going to hang her name up in her room as soon as we get some hooks.  She's already "read" the Angelina book 5 times - lol!  Your package went out today - I hope your son enjoys everything! Smiley

Updated: She's sleeping with the Angelina book.

I want a red polka dot dress!  Especially if it comes with a shoulder parrot!

Incidentally, my husband would probably steal that transformers bag from that little girl if he saw it on the street!  That stuff is awesome!

I received from girlosun_9 yesterday.  I tried to get action shots of what I could.  My daughter wanted to wear a t-shirt to school today, but it was pj day (second to last day of school).
My kids loved their package-they were perfectly matched to them.  Ben slept in his train shirt, which he is still wearing b/c he said it wasn't dirty.
Oh, yesterday was also my daughter's birthday (7) so it was an extra surprise for her, which was nice b/c we didn't do presents yesterday, we are having a party this weekend.

Ok, enough random thoughts...here are the fab. presents.

Some of Ben's goodies:  Make your own Thomas stuff.  T-shirt with a house, cute bag with magnetic rocks in it.

Fishing pole with 4 really cute magnetic fish

Ben's with his favorite shirt on.  I told him to pose...

Liv's stuff.  A beautiful black and white bag/purse she loves, a small bag with fabric button ponytail holders and a headband.  Plus, some fun crafty extras.

2 t-shirts  stenciled with hearts and a bird

Liv with her bag and headband.

thanks so much, this was really, really great!
