Lindbergs' December gifts lighten up dark January

This marvellous package was just what I needed to pick me up a grey day like this in mid-January, when I'm at home with a headache! The package actually arrived a week ago, but I haven't had time to go to the post office to get it until today. This is what we received:

As I had expressed a certain weekness for peanut butter cups there were lots of them! Yum-yum! There were also a nice wooden hedgehog toy (I can't wait to see my child dragging it along everywhere in the apartment!), a funny children's tray with separate spaces for different dishes and even a space for chop sticks, toys for the cats and two nice cards for us. But the most fantastic, amazing thing was this:

Mrs Secret Pal has made a Christmas shirt for our baby from a placemat with a Swedish Christmas song on it! Isn't that incredible?!?! She writes that a friend of hers found the placemat in her vintage store and that she checked with another Swedish waiting mum on the internet what the words said. I'm touched beyond words!

The words are a funny, silly Christmas song that everybody in Sweden knows and that we sing every year in my family! Our baby will look so cute wearing this beautiful shirt!

The cats Selma and Signe are checking everything out. The colourful toys were very popular!

I can't thank you enough, Mr and Mrs Secret Pal! I appreciated this package so much!
