Thank You to the Blat's Secret Pal

Christmas Eve brought this wonderful package with a super cute fancy dress with tights, shoes and matching ribbons. This is something that I would have picked out myself for Baby Blat. Thanks again!

Merry Christmas to the Sheltons

Christmas is over officially but we received a package from Secret Pal a couple of days ago. Sorry, Secret Pal, that it has taken me a few days to post my thanks. I wanted to post a picture though so everyone can see the beautiful dress that you sent to Marissa. I can already picture her in it wearing little black Mary Janes. She is going to be so precious in it. We also received 2 books that we have enjoyed looking through. The photographers of these books are amazing. Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness.

The Appletons Get Christmas Goodies From Mr. and Mrs. Secret Pal!

Well, today I went out clothes shopping and found some REALLY good deals! Plus, it was fun to just be out of the house trying on clothes and not having to watch the clock. When I got home, THERE was a package from our Secret Pals from the March DTC Group. Doug got home at the same time so I didn't have to wait for him to get home (which always takes a LOT of patience on my part! hahahahahaha). I opened the box to find:
1. A stocking of red and green mice for the cats to play with (notice it's not in the photo because they are now all over the floor! hahahahaha)
2. A Hallmark photo album scrapbook ready for Christmas pictures (hopefully 2008 will be our year to get our baby girl!)
3. The Christmas Miracle: Shaoey and Dot (they ALWAYS find these for us and I LOVE THEM!) by Stephen Curtis and Mary Beth Chapman
4. Rose petals to sprinkle in the bath!
5. A $25 giftcard to OUTBACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OUR FAVORITE PLACE TO EAT IN DANVILLE!!! THANK YOU!
6. A beautiful card FULL of encouraging and supportive sentiments. Thank you so much for being our friends through this HORRIBLE wait! What would we do without you?
7. An Amy Grant Christmas CD (I actually WANTED this but never bought it over the holidays! Thank you!)
8. A beautiful handmade bracelet about the Red Thread! Oh my gosh, I CRIED when I saw this and read the message that came with it! I can't WAIT to wear it as we wait for Rebekah in 2008. This was soooooooooooooooo touching!!!!!!!
9. Red fingernail polish! What a beautiful shade!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you so much Mr. and Mrs. Secret Pal. This waiting is getting harder and harder but knowing we have friends and support like you, make it a little more bearable! We truly love you guys so much and thank you for the thoughtfulness and love you put into our goody boxes each month! May God bless you and keep you hanging in there too! Let's all think positive thoughts as we head into a new year together! 2008 WILL be our year!!!!!!!!
