Secret Ornament Swap...no not the new Fox Show

Julie at Abbily Ever After had an idea for a blogger secret ornamnet swap....I was all over that.
I love surprises (giving and getting). I cannot wait to show you what I recieved from MY secret blogger....

Doesn't this look exactly like the girls I heart?



Doesn't his look like moi? (yes, I rented "buns of steel" from the library)




Doesn't this look like what we don't get here in Houston? Thank God! btw, it is an irredescent glass ornament filled with snow).


Finally, isn't this the sweetest letter written by a fellow awesome blogger ;)
Kristen at Our Army Life was a great secret ornament swapper. She put a lot of thought into her gift and I really appreciate it. It brought a smile to my face to open up the box yesterday. They are very pretty and the penguins really do resemble the girls! Thank you very much, and I will hang these ornaments up as sooon as I get a tree this weekend!
Thanks Julie for initiating the swap and thank you so much Kristen for participating...this was a lot of fun!
