SUMMER SAC SWAP
This week Mikayla and I were in for a treat we got our Summer Sac Swap package from Alice-Anne Nix. Alice if you are reading this thankyou soooo much it was so much fun. This swap was one where you don't know who you are getting the item from the person who you send to is not the one who sends to you. I hope Jennifer enjoyed her Swap package as much as I did mine.
So sweet Alison sent us a bag full of goodies from her trips around the US there were 12 pressies plus some news papers, real estate books and car books. Thankyou so much is was so much fun to look at those things and Mikayla now has show and tell items for the rest of the year:)
