Nest Swap 2011 ~~

Good Monday Morning Friends ~~
Last December I participated in a "Joy Swap" over at Monica's and it was so wonderful to meet a new friend and Bless her with goodies. So when Monica hosted another swap I so wanted to be a part of it. So I was a part of the Nest Swap earlier this month.

Let me start out by apologizing to Crystal my swap buddy for not getting this post up last Monday, but with mom's recent health issues, I have not been home very much.

So here is what I sent to sweet Crystal..... It was so much fun putting this together, because Crystal lives in the Northwest, which I no NOTHING about, so it was fun getting to know her, and putting together this fun box, complete with Cadbury Mini-Eggs, flower seeds, a bird chime, a fun HUGE pencil, and a mini-scrapbook that I made just for her with our "Nest" theme. It was so much fun!!!

And she Blessed me with the sweetest goodies. (Please forgive my messy table....I am SO far behind and Dak's party is THIS will get done girl.....BREATHE =)

See all these goodies? And yep, Sir Cuteness is right in the middle of it. Now isn't that right where a 2 year old is suppose to be? =)

She sent me:
A Beautiful Box that has a magnetic closure on it, so cute ~~
Homemade Hot Chocolate....I had some yesterday....SO yummy ~~
Marshmallows in the shape of SO cute ~~
Coconut chocolate clusters from Russel Stovers ~~ YUM!! ~~
2 knitted pot holders ~~ she knit herself....LOVE ~~
A "Sweet Song Bird" scrapbook stamp ~~ I will putting that to good use ~~
Sunflower seeds ~~ which I understand are hard to come by in the Pacific NW ~~
And a sweet handwritten card ~~ LOVE~!!

Have you ever? ~~

All of my sweet goodies ~~ thank you SO much Crystal!!!!!

Sir Cuteness checking it out~~~

And let me wrap up with a couple of pics of my sweet Dak.
Here he is yesterday ready to go to his dad's. Then they were headed to his Great Granny Maxine's Visitation.

He is so sweet ~~ I love him so!!!

Yep that is my unmade bed. Did I mention how far behind I am in the housework dept? =)

But he is cute, unmade bed and all =)

He is missing school today. His Granny's Funeral is at 10:00 AM. If you think of him today, please say a prayer for my tender-hearted boy. This has been so hard on him.

Thank you for your prayers and love for our family ~~

Have a Blessed day ~~
