Fun treats in the mail..

Friday was a super fun mail day. Miss Madie came running home from the mail box saying momma the mail . Guess what you have two apron packages. I eagerly ripped the first one open while she riped the second one.So I opened the first one wondering wish Swap it could have come from I saw a children's book and thought how sweet. I then looked at the apron and thought how cute is this.I then read the note and found out this was a first time swapper. In being a first time swapper she did not say witch swap she was from.. So I did some investigating and saw she was on the flirty apron summer vacation swap... So I am guessing that this is the apron from this swap. Anyways.. I read the sweet note and then looked at the book. It was called the little stream a parable. I thought how sweet. I have heard the book read in primary many times and some how did not know it was a book. I thought it was just a story from a manual or something. I grew up with the song the book was based on Give said the little stream.. so I thought how thoughtful of her to send this book. I then read who the Author was. It was Kristi Sherwood Crum.The maker of my new apron and the sender of the package. I was totally impressed with her modesty in never once saying in her letter by the way here is a book I wrote. She even inscribed the book and singed it.It is a very sweet insception. She also said how much she liked Sarah Palin. The whole experience was very neat.. I will show off the apron later..

The second package was not an apron but a Target reusable Shopping bag and a J monogrammed note card. I looked at it confused for a moment thinking what swap is this from. I then opened the note that came with it. It was from my beautiful Low matance older sister Crystal. She thoughtfully sent me the target bag so that I would have a target bag for the opening day of target coming up on the 12th of October. I can hardly wait. Thank you my big sissy for being so thoughtful. I love it and can't wait to fill it up with all the yummy target goodies..I am so lucky to have such a good older sister who knows how hard it is to be with out a Target. Poor girl was in Germany for 4 years with out one..



I hope every one is having a great Monday. I will probably post later today about Making recycled aprons and shopping bags.

How fun. I love when I go to the mail box and find something for me besides junk mail.

I have never been with out a Target so I have no understanding how you feel.

I sometimes look at Crystals blog just to see how she is doing. Tell her HI.

Have a great Day!!!

I was going to send you a Target bag with some coupons, I kept thinking what a kick you would get out of it. :) Now you'll have fun getting to stuff that huge bag full. When we were in Mississippi there was no Target, luckily we weren't there too long. :) I love the little stream parable, can't wait to see what the apron looks like.

Yay, I am so glad you got the package before Target opens! I do know exactly how you must feel knowing it is opening soon.
I remember that You were kind enough to take me to Target every day for weeks so I could get my fix when I visited you in CA. I told the cashiers all about it when I was buying the bag, they were laughing at both of us and said you should get a job at Target LOL.

lol, don't you ever read the return address? So you didn't even know it was from your sister? ;)

BTW, if you are ever down visiting your sister, you should give me a shout, I live maybe 3 or 4 hrs away from her. (Hi Crystal!)

I wish I had a sister....
