Much More Christmas Swap

Nicole had a "Much More Christmas Swap" and I received my package from Rebecca a few days ago.

Wow did she send me some awesome gifts or what!? Look how well she was able to shop for me! I got a chuckle when I saw the Slow Cooker and 30 Minute Meals cookbooks - how perfect! Now I'll have plenty of new recipes to share.

The 2 baby outfits are the first new things I have for this baby! How exciting to get baby stuff!

The butterfly frame is great because Kayla's bed set is butterflies! The DVD she sent is The Night Before Christmas and Kayla has already watched it a few times - she loves it!

I really like the 4 plaques and all their sayings; and the 2 Christmas pins are cute! This was such a fun swap to participate in! Thank you so much Rebecca! You did a great job!

And can I just issue a blanket apology for not being around to comment on your blogs the last several days? Or respond to emails? I'm so far behind I don't know how I'm going to catch up. There is just too much to do and not enough time. I feel like my house is a disaster area with clutter everywhere! I think I've said "yes" to too many things, but I finally turned something down. My MOPS table is having a Christmas party tomorrow, but I just couldn't commit to going, I need some time to de-stress and take care of things at home! I hate feeling guilty for saying no though; isn't that always how it goes?
I'm hoping to be back next week refreshed and stress-free!

What a wonderful bundle of goodies! What a blessing. Yes it is getting so busy now, crazy stuff. I know it is hard to say no isn't it? I am leaving on the 18th for 3 weeks vacation, so will be a bloggy break for me (unless I cyber cafe in desperation over the weeks!!!) so may God bless you and Kayla this Christmas and the new babe in your tum. May Joe have grace and may you all enter 2008 with excitement and joy!!! Big hugs. Hope Kayla enjoys her Christmas present (my daughter still talks about the pressie with excitement)

How fun! I just love getting packages in the mail, especially really good ones like you have there!

Life gets busy sometimes... I hope you are able to relax a bit and feel refreshed by some good time spent at home.

Ooooh look at all those wonderful goodies you received in the swap...such a wonderful assortment! Oh Michelle, don't worry about not having been able to comment much lately, we are all in the same situation...I use to visit almost every day and now I'm lucky to visit once a week! lol Once the holidays are over then we can get back to our regular routine:-) xox

Sometimes we need time for us....good for you for saying no....I'm proud of you!

Karen said...

How fun to get all that stuff in the mail! Take your time and rest, we'll all be here when you're less stressed. But those little ones of yours need your time.

I wish I would have done this Christmas swap. It looks really cool. I'm glad you got stuff you'll really use and need! Hope all of your stuff gets done and you can relax!!! Good for you for saying no. It's hard but necessary sometimes.

Fun gifts - CHRISTmas is sooo crazy - I have said yes to waaay too too much - only 2 more weeks - at least it will help time fly by so Joe will be home soon! That was so fun to send him a note!

GREAT Gifts! Thanks for sharing them!
I have been terrible lately with keeping up...I think the holidays with all the "fun" stuff is also a time consuming stressor too!
So many parties, so much shopping, not much time to sit and relax.
Happy Holidays!!!! p.s. sent your DH a x-mas card in the mail and was thinking I would love to send one to you Kayla and baby on the way!

Kacey Bode said...

Hey! I just got caught up on your blog, you have been busy!!! I need your address so I can send a Christmas card, you can email it to fbkspeach@yahoo.com

Take it easy!!!

Thomas said...

I am tired. I have been running around all over town shopping and trying to get errands done. I haven't been able to post in a week. I wanted to thank you for stopping by my site.

Today I got Brenda and Lisa some stuff for Christmas.

Have a Merry Christmas and May all your holiday wishes come true. Have fun making memories.

Oh yeah I will have some X-maqs coloring pages post real soon. Try next week. www.brendasfriends.com/coloringpages.html

Thanks for posting on my blog...you are welcome...and no, I have not received your package yet...but I did receive a card that says something is waiting for me at the post office:-)....we live out in the country and have rural mailboxes...so it probably didn't fit in the mailbox....will let you know when I go out tomorrow.


Stephanie said...

I wouldn't worry about saying no.. sometimes you have to in order to keep your sanity! I hope you have a fun relaxing time at home.. take care!!

Shelley said...

Michelle - have a wonderful, safe and restful CHristmas. I know you'll be missing Joe - I'll keep you in my prayers. That second baby must be getting much closer now - you need to take some time somewhere for yourself. Thank you so much for your amazing and generous prescence in blogland this year. Best wishes.
