Last Thursday was one of the best days I have had in a while. Not to be a downer, but with moving and trying to fit into a new town it can get lonely and draining. I've been spoiled most my life with amazing friends and well, I don't live in the same town with well any of them. Yes, we are starting to build relationships here, but it is a slow process. For now, I am enjoying my sweet family, but I do crave Christmas parties with friends.
Anyways, I signed up for the ornament exchange over at Macky Madness and The Smitten Mintons. At first, I just thought this would be a fun way to get some new/different/fun ornaments for our tree, but little did I know how awesome my exchange buddy would be. I signed up for the exchange after seeing it on Leisha's blog and guess who became my buddy...yep Leisha. There were tons of people participating, but I think our first names brought us together and I'm sure glad they did! She sent me not one but three awesome ornaments.
ONE... a cute little penguin! Too adorable. If I ever put anything lit up in my yard it will be a penguin, but I am holding out until I find the cutest one!
TWO...she sent Ellison a sock monkey. She loved it! Sorry for the video being sideways. Just turn your head to the left and enjoy :).
THREE...my favorite. She made a homemade photo ornament of our family, and I love it. My favorite for sure, and this will be on our tree for years to come.
Check out the snowman I sent her here.
