Sept/Oct Thank you from the BeDells!

Hi Secret Pal,
I finally have the time to properly thank you and post pictures! You have been so sweet and thoughtful to us over the last several months. Thank you so much. My family really is enjoying being included. Rick loved the "Daddy" books (just like I loved the "Mommy" books!) And as usual, you go above and beyond the Secret Pal duty! :) We loved the touchy/feely books and I'm sure Marissa will love them too! And the boys have been loving their little extra gifts like the snakes, balls and boomerangs - all winners with them!
Then this month I was blown away as usual! Homemade chocolate Mooncakes in a beautiful fall themed basket with the poem about the Moon Festival in both English and Chinese! They were scrumptious! Both the basket and the lovely candle holder and candle are a centerpiece on my kitchen table, so every day I think of you! The boys loved the candy and the light-up pumpkin necklaces. Thanks for taking the time to make this wait bearable. You are truly a blessing.
Rachel BeDell (and Family!)

Thank You From The Buhler's!!

Look at all the wonderful things our secret pal sent to us this month!!! I'm sure my secret pal lives in the same town as me and watches my every move because just last week, I was gazing over PINK diaper bags trying to decide if I should buy one or not!! She found us the CUTEST one ever!! It says "Cute as a button" on it!! (I'm sure Dale will LOVE carrying a pink diaper bag around!! HA!! Too bad for him!! lol)

The diaper bag was FULL of a ton of fun and helpful things for our eventual travel to China. There was also the cutest pink dress for Annaliese to wear when she gets home!

Hits for the boys this gift included, jelly bellies, animal crackers and foam flying airplanes!! Too cute!!

Thanks soooo much secret pal!! We love everything!! You're too good to us!!

Thank you Bryant Secret Pal

Thanks so much for our wonderful Autumn Package. we received it earlier last week but there was much confusion as to who the package was from, I should have known regardless. Sorry about that.

We loved the notepad, trust me, in our house it's all about the notepads and notes, and lists.... lol.

Also, the little makeupbag will come handy as I will probably travel more often for this job than the last and can always use a little bag to put stuff in! Last but not least, the beautiful tin and wonderful Moon Cake were fantastic. What a special treat to receive... we gave up trying to celebrate the Autumn Moon Festival since we were moving so we were wonderfully surprised to receive your gift.

thanks again.
