What a wonderful pal!

THANKS FROM THE KRAMER'S
I CAME HOME YESTERDAY TO A VERY SPECIAL PACKAGE ON OUR FRONT PORCH. I WAS SO EXCITED TO SEE THAT IT WAS FROM MY WONDERFUL SECRET PAL! THIS TIME I LET MIKE BE THE ONE TO OPEN IT AND WE BOTH LOVED EVERYTHING INSIDE. THANKS FOR SPOILING US ROTTEN.
MIKE GOT THE SWEETEST CARD AND A VERY SPECIAL HOMEMADE BRAG BOOK. HE COULDN'T BELIEVE HOW MUCH EFFORT OUR SECRET PAL WENT INTO MAKING IT. EACH PAGE IS SPECIALLY DESIGNED AND EVEN HAS STICKERS TO ADD. MIKE SAID HE CAN'T WAIT TO GET HIS FIRST PICTURE OF EMMA TO PUT IN IT.



LOOK AT HOW SPOILED I AM!!! I LOVE BATH AND BODY WORKS AND MY PAL GOT ME MY FAVORITE SCENTS. JUST TO LET YOU KNOW I JUST RAN OUT OF THE KITCHEN SOAP AND WAS SO UPSET WHEN I WENT SHOPPING AND COULDN'T FIND ANYMORE. (YOU'RE AMAZING!) I WAS ALSO SO EXCITED ABOUT THE SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER AS I HAVE NEVER HAD ANY OF THEIRS AND CAN'T WAIT TO USE IT.

CHECK OUT MY CUTE PILLOW. I LOVE IT! I BELIEVE IT IS HOMEMADE BUT I WANT TO KNOW IF MY PAL MADE IT. BUT THAT IS NOT ALL....


CHECK OUT THE SPECIAL CARD WITH EMMA'S NAME ON THE FRONT. IT MADE MY HEART SINK TO SEE HER NAME ON IT. I CAN'T WAIT TO ONE DAY SHARE ALL OF THIS WITH HER.
I KNOW, I KNOW, HOW MANY PICTURES AM I GOING TO POST BUT I REALLY JUST WANTED TO LET MY PAL KNOW HOW SPECIAL EACH AND EVERY GIFT IS. THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR KINDNESS. YOU SURE KNOW HOW TO MAKE THE KRAMER'S HAPPY!!

My secret pal was kind enough to send my June gift last month as she was to be away in June. I received this beautiful necklace to "pamper" myself! I have already worn it several times and absolutely love it! Thanks Secret Pal! I can't wait until next month!

Thank You Secret Pal


Murphy loves his bone! He was sniffing at the box as I was opening the package, it is as if he could smell his treat through the packaging.

Thank you so much for all of the thoughtful gifts! I love the Bath and Body Works Collection, I have never had so much smelly stuff! It will be nice to relax in the bubble bath after the marathon this Saturday and my husband can use the lotion to help massage out all of the sore muscles! The shower gel, shower scrub and body splash will get used tomorrow! I can't wait! I will put the candle next to my bed and bring the hand lotion to work so I can think of you and our little ones in China when I use it. The gifts for Baby Blat were so nice, a super cute bib, spoons and a baby photo book. I had just written on my To Do list for the summer was to get started on a photo book to send when we get our referral, so now I can get started. Lastly, thanks for the Starbucks card, my husband is the big coffee drinker at our house - he was very pleased to have a present too!

On a separate note we have picked our nursery colors of lilac and aqua and chosen a quilt and such from Pottery Barn - Who knew this would be so tough!

Thank you so much for your generosity!

Thanks to the Hawkins' Secret Pal!!!




Secret Pal,
First let me say why I am late in posting; we were out of town when the package arrived and I returned right to work with meetings off site that just ended yesterday! I really loved the gift, all of it. The swimsuit is so sweet I can't wait until we get to use it! After I took everything (swimsuit, toys, hair clips, picture frame, night lite, tights, scented diaper disposal bags, toddler scissors and construction paper) out of the box, I found the card and realized there was more!!! The quilt is beautiful!! And I didn't look under the paper, I promise! You really shouldn't have but I am so glad you did!!!

Thanks again,
Regina
