Rainy Day thank-you to Cathy's pal!

Thank you once again to my wonderful Secret Pal! We received an adorable "lotus flower" rain coat, umbrella and hanger! I saw this in the store and resisted buying it for myself!! I'm so glad you chose these! I can't wait until Leah can use them. The wings on the bee on the umbrella stick out - it is just too cute! Thank you so much for this generous gift. And thanks for being a great pal, I look forward to the gifts so much each month. :-) Happy spring to you and thanks again! Love, Cathy

The Appletons Say Thanks For The "Cooking Fun" Goodies!!!!

Well, today we got a FUN box from our dear secret pals who have been by our side month after month through this LONG wait. The theme for this month was "Cooking Fun" and our pals were just as creative as they always are. Our box contained:
1. A Cookbook "From Books To Cooks"
2. "The Toddler Cookbook" (wonderful pictures!)
3. A Precious Moments Chef Bear
4. A Kid's Pizza Set (Rebekah can make her own little pizzas!)
5. Favorite Family Recipes Scrapbook
6. A Kid's Baking Set (complete with pan, rolling pan, whisk, wooden spoon!)
7. A Kid's Deluxe Chef Set (with the oven mitt, chef's hat, apron, wooden spoon!)
8. 5 Metal Cookie Cutters
9. An Easter treats box (yummy candy)
10. Cupcake Baking Cups
11. Sprinkles to decorate the cupcakes

WOW! What a wonderful collection of fun stuff to share with Baby Rebekah when she gets old enough to help Mommy in the kitchen! I have always dreamed of cooking little things with a daughter and just sharing the joy of cooking with her one day. I can't wait to have her using all her little "cooking" stuff one day!!!!!! Thank you so much Mr. and Mrs. Secret Pal! You guys, as usual, really treated us so kindly with all of this wonderful stuff! You know we love you guys and we DEFINITELY appreciate all of the thought and care you put into surprising us each month! God bless!
