Peppermint Pearls Secret Pal

I belong to to a wonderful Yahoo group, Dec2006DTC, which is a group of families from around the U.S. (I don't think we have any international members, but we might??) who all were DTC (dossier to China) in December of 2006. It includes people with LID (log-in-dates) from November 2006 to about February 2007.

We have named ourselves the "Peppermint Pearls" -- Peppermint for December and Pearls for the product from China.

We just started a new Secret Pal swap and today was the day to open our first presents. Here's a picture of ALL the stuff our pal sent us. We are OVERWHELMED!!! with the amount of goodies we got.

We got:

  • Hardback book of The Night Before Christmas
  • A door hanger that plays Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree
  • An "Oh Deer" jelly bean dispenser
  • A Santa journal
  • A sippy cup for Ellie
  • Two bibs for Ellie
  • Three peppermint sticks
  • Two boxes of Christmas Little Debbie snacks
  • A dog notepad
  • Two packs of chocolate pudding
  • Two Christmas cups with straws
  • Some Christmas baby bows
  • Three tins each containing a large chocolate chip cookie, and
  • A cute stuffed Christmas dog

I'll be lucky to salvage much of it for Ellie. :-) I've told Joshua that the book, sippy cup, hairbows, stuffed dog and bibs are all for Ellie. The rest is up for grabs.

THANK YOU Secret Pal, if you are reading our blog!! Can't wait until next swap!!
