Belated Thanks to Dave and Di's Wonderful Secret Pals!

I have to apologize for the lateness of this post. I took on 2 extra classes in November (64 hours each compressed into 8 weeks and 6 weeks....!) to try to upgrade our China fund, so I just didn't have time to post photos. I am so sorry dear pals.

Meanwhile, our pals kept the faith, and sent us to lovely packages. We really are so lucky to have the most generous pals.

For November the theme was "Dress You Up In My Love," and our pals took that idea and sent us a whole day's worth of clothes for Sophie. It was a really cute twist on the idea I thought, and very giving too.

For December the theme was "Holidays," and our pals sent us some beautiful holiday outfits.
But the giving doesn't stop there!
In addition each package had extras, toys, books, treats for our pets... Everything was a very thoughtful and welcomed addition.

Pals, you are so dear to us, and you have the best taste. We will always be proud to dress Sophie "in your love."

Thanks so much, happy new year to you, and speedy referrals to us all!

Thank You Hanson's Crafty Pals!!!

What can I say but wow!!!!!!!! Thank you so much to our secret ;) pals!!! Your package arrived just as we were leaving for the homeland and I couldn't have been happier to open it when I did! Can you tell from this picture that our secret pals MADE this stocking?????? Seriously - made it!!! We love it so much!!!!
I think what is the coolest (other than I love angels in the first place) is that Caroline will be named after her own angel - my mom who passed away 10 years ago. She loved to cross-stitch and would have totally made her granddaughter something like this if she was still around. We always talk about how our little girl has her own angel taking care of her while she is still half-way around the world, so you could not have picked anything more perfect to renew our spirits this Christmas. Thank you soooooo much for your thoughtfulness! I hope you have a great (and not too cold) Christmas and New Year! Thank you again!!!!!!!!
