Thank You! Terri's Secret Pal

I received the cutest and pinkest little outfits for my daughter! Every detail says 'girl'. One of the tops has leg of mutton fun is that! These outfits are soo cute I want to post the photos with all the details but I lost the cable to my photos & details will be posted later. Also, I have heard so much about the book with Zoey and Dot, but I never read it. I was thrilled to receive it & read it and I can hardly wait to read it to my daughter. Thank you

Many, Many Thanks to the Wohlford's Pal!

Dearest Secret Pal,

I am sooo sorry that it has taken so long to thank you. To keep my mind off being childless and having a husband who has to work all the time for now, I've taken on just about everything extra I can at work and in my personal life. In addition to not having time to properly thank you, I haven't even been able to go get shampoo or soap for a week. (Luckily there was a little left in my travel stash.) So please accept my sincere apology! I really loved all my gifts. They were a fun little break from my running around like a crazy person!

The packaging is always so cute. I bet I would love that store! The pillow looks perfect in the baby room. The only piece of furniture we have is the rocking chair and it looks great in it. It's going to match the room perfectly. Also check out John's clean shaven cheeks in the picture with the pillow--that smooth face is something that only gets seen once every 2 or 3 years.

As I may have mentioned, I adore Halloween, so thanks for the little fork and spoon!

We got 2 great animals for the price of one. Pooh is sooooo soft! We couldn't resist switching the glow worm off of demo mode so we could see what he would sound like to the baby.

As for the clothes--Do they make sweaters like that in adult sizes??? It is so wonderfully soft and thick and warm! And I probably love hoodies more than any other person in the world. It's exactly the kind of clothing I would pick out.

As for the dress, I have dreams of holiday photos done up in those sweet little dresses, and this one is no exception. Holiday dresses will be one item of clothing that I will definitely be blowing some real money on after our daughter is here.

Once again, I am really sorry for the late thanks. Your gifts are the best. I really appreciate all the thought behind them. They are perfect for us--and the baby(ies). THANK YOU!!! I hope you enjoy a very, very merry Christmas!

With much love,
John and Tara

Huge holiday thank-you to Cathy & Mark's pal!

Once again we want to send huge "thanks" to our wonderful pal! We actually got our package the day of our home study update, and when the doorbell rang I thought it was our social worker coming early! yikes!! But thankfully it was just the delivery guy with our SP package! woo hoo!!! We got a wonderful selection of great stuff, and we love everything! We received a beautiful white Christmas dress with ornaments, which is just so sweet. We also received a great jr. doctor play kit with lots of cool stuff!! We have been playing with it already! We also received a Hallmark keepsake luggage ornament - very nice, and some cookie cutters which I really need - I was planning on doing gingerbread men for the cookie exchange this year, and needed to buy one, but now I have one!! Thank you! And another little ladybug and secret pal card. All in all, a great selection of things - thank you so much for sending us some holiday cheer! We hope you have a great holiday! Love, Cathy & Mark

Pina Princess

I wanted to thank our Secret Pal for the beautiful dress she sent for Allison. I love pink and grey and I can't wait to see her with it on. I will post a pic soon, but I wanted to let my secret pal know how much I loved the dress!
