Secret Santa Spoils Us!!

Knock! Knock! Knock!

Who in the world could that be in the middle of the day? **gives a shocked look** THE MAIL LADY!! And in her hands was a box...SECRET SANTA!!! I yelled for the girls as we took the box into the living room. They sat down with their eyes twinkling as we opened up the box. I was NOT expecting to find that my Secret Santa had not only shopped for me....but for my girls as well! The screams they let out were such joy :)

Our Secret Santa is.... Melissa aka Amalas



So we each took a turn and opened our gifts and as you can see from the slideshow....it was VERY exciting! Kayleigh went first....she got a Dorothy pendant for a necklace. She was Dorothy from Wizard of Oz for Halloween and she was thrilled! Next Kacey opened her gift. She got a "Scoodie" ...its a scarf and hoodie in one! It was made with Tigger material too :) She let out a scream and immediately wrapped herself in it (which she's worn all evening) Then the gift that was for me and Kacey, I let her open. A book....OMGGGGGGGGGG the book that was on my Christmas list.... "Pumping Insulin"......THANK YOU!!! Then it was my turn. I had 3 packages and one pin. The pin says "Cure Diabetes" and will be worn proudly! The first one I opened was a very cool clay bead bracelet in "SuperMom" colors! The second was a Hawaiian handmade bag which will be perfect for me to take on my Hawaii trip next summer! The third was a handmade knitted pair of gloves in the same pattern that Bella from Twilight wears in the movie!! I still havent been able to see the movie yet....but Im thrilled to wear these gloves! I always have issues with that little part of my wrist being exposed when I wear regular gloves with my coat....not anymore :D they are perfect!!!

Melissa....THANK YOU so much :) You certainly brought smiles to our 3 faces and we're very thankful to have such a giving Secret Santa! I'm thrilled about starting the book (which I will do after dinner) You're the best!!!
