I've Been Really Busy, but I'm Back Now!

Kids Summer Swap
The kids and I participated in the Kids Summer Swap hosted by Lori . All three of the little kids signed up for it. Ezie's swap partner was Miranda. Miranda and her mom Deb sent Ezie some really cool toys! He got a Barrel of Monkeys Game, a Zoom O, a bubble wand and an Old Navy Football. He LOVES everything!! He took off with everything so fast I didn't get pictures so I had to "borrow" them from the Internet.

Mallory and Jace swapped with Beth's daughters, Lucy and Lola. This is part of Jace's package that Lola sent. He took off with stuff so fast I didn't get a picture of everything. There is a bug catcher, coloring books, 4 little Golden Books, trucks, foam visor, some super cool fabric memory cards with a little bag to hold them. Jace also got the coolest crayon holder and Hot Wheels Car Holder. Oh, and sidewalk.

The holders rolled up. So cool!!
Mallory's Stuff
Lucy sent Mallory some fabric so she can sew something, a couple packages of foamies, ladybug cards, stickers, coloring book, a puzzle mania book, a teddy bear magnet, sidewalk chalk, a pretty necklace with sea glass in it, some seashells "that came from the real ocean!", a crayon holder like Jace's (she has taken it to summer school everyday this week) and the nicest apron and I'm sure I've some stuff. Mallory was so thrilled with everything, but especially the sea shells and apron. She made muffins already so she could wear the apron.
I'm sure I forgot to mention some of the stuff. Sorry, but the kids were so excited I could hardly keep track of everything. It was like Christmas at our house!! My kids had a great time picking stuff out for the swap partners. I'll show pictures of what we sent tomorrow.
Thank You so much Lori for hosting this fun swap! Thank you Deb, Miranda, Beth, Lucy and Lola for being so generous and making this a wonderful swap for the kids!!
