Junebug Secret Pal Revealed.....

We received our final Secret Pal package yesterday. It was so hard to keep Wendy from opening her part of the package. My pal had left hints and an order of our presents.
She did it to Christmas Songs.
Mike had "Santa Claus is Coming to Town"
Lacy had "Frosty the Snowman"
Holly had "Winter Wonderland"
Wendy had "Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer"
Mylie had "Little Drummer Boy (Girl)"
And mine was "Rocking Around the Christmas Tree"

Well, Mike received lots of Chocolate with a nice Santa.
Lacy, snowman lotion,lip balm, and nail file.
Holly, penguin lotion, lip balm, and nail file.
Wendy, a Reindeer Apron, and Chef Hat.
Mylie, a wonderful drum with playing instruments inside. This will be waiting for Mylie and I know she will absolutely love it!!
I received a Beautiful Cut Crystal Ladybug!
Last of all we all received Maple Syrup from her area in Canada. YUM! We plan on using it on Christmas morning with breakfast.

Everything was so beautifully wrapped in Christmas Paper. Such a wonderful package for a final gift. My pal has been about the sweetest thing with all of the wonderfully thought out themes and packages.

Anik Nolet is my Secret Pal and she lives in Canada, and this is she and her husbands first child. They are LID May 18 month before ours. Some of the families in our Junebug 06' group weren't sure of their LID at the time they joined the June group and many got to know all of the June LID families so it was hard for them to not stay in ours and May or July however their DTC/LID's fell.

I'm happy that she is part of our group, and that I was able to get to know Anik!

Thank you so much Anik for all you have done for my family.


Happy 18 Months......well not totally happy~

This is the time of year I had actually thought we would be in China for Mylie. There are many things going on at this time of year to keep us busy though.
I have been wrapping presents, addressing and mailing our Christmas Cards. Not to mention all of the packing going on. So, we have really been too busy to whine about it this time around.

Happy 18th month to my future travel mates!!! I am know hoping that this time next year we will hopefully be on our way to our new little ones.
