Hats for the Shelton's

Secret Pal, you have done it again. I am sorry it has taken me a little bit to get this posted for everyone to see. Trying to get used to having my dd at home for summer break. Amazing how much I get done when she is not here and she's 11. HA! Anyway, look at all the hats I got. There is one for just about every occassion. Beautiful straw hats, a safari hat, floppy hats, winter hats, even a fun parrot hat. I just can't wait until she can start wearing them. In addition to the hats, we got a couple of pair of sunglasses and lots of pretty hairbows and 2 purses. I'm sorry I didn't get all the hair bows and the extra pair of sunglasses in the picture. The little straw purse was full of small hair accessories and another pair of sunglasses. We are just so overwhelmed. Caitlin tried a few of the hats on and she really looked cute. Unfortunately, she is at an age where it isn't cool to have your picture made acting silly. Thank you SP from the bottom of our hearts. You truly are the best.

"Hat Goodies" From The Appleton's Secret Pals!!!

For the month of May, the theme for the Secret Pals Exchange was "Hats Off To Baby" and we were to send hats and stuff related to that. We got our little box of goodies today and had a ball seeing the hats that our secret pals picked out for Rebekah to wear one day. There was a purple/white ball cap, a pink crocheted hat, a lilac woven hat, a winter black/white hat with mittens, and the cutest little pink floppy hat! Then they had extended the "hat theme" by purchasing two children's books about being The Cat In The Hat! hahahahahahahaha How cute!!!!!! Mr. and Mrs. Secret Pal KNOW how much we love children's books! Rebekah is going to have the BEST collection of books to love and enjoy!!!!Thank you so much Mr. and Mrs. Secret Pal! You guys are the best!!!! I can't believe that we have had the same pals since we first started this Secret Pal exchange and they know EXACTLY what to send!!!!!!! You guys are awesome and we love you so much!!! I have decided to start on a special project just for Mr. and Mrs. Secret Pal so that in the end, we will have something from our hearts to give back to them just to let them know how much we love them and appreciate all that they have done for us through all these months of waiting and enduring. Their friendship has meant a LOT to us!!!
