Valentine Swap and Catch-up

Happy Saturday everyone. It was such a beautiful day today. We had a temp of 40 degrees and the sun even peeked out for a hour or two. Sadly we have still not gotten anymore snow after the "big" storm of 3 inches last week. Poor people on the east coast are going to get hit again. I don't know why I like snow but it is just so pretty and also I don't have to go out in it.

Last night I went to my nephew's One Act play and he did such a good job. I was really impressed. Even though I babysit 2-3 times a week I never see him because he always has afterschool activities so it was great to see him. All the practice really paid off too. I babysat Isaiah and he still wasn't feeling the best so still a lot of snuggling. I got him those magnetic alphabet letters and he knew all of the names except for "L" I am not sure why he doesn't get that one, I think it is too hard for him to say it or something. I think that is pretty good for not even two yet...well he is close but still I was proud.

I told you that Christina Rebuilding Our Homestead, and I were going to do a Valentine swap and this week I got my package from her. I was so excited and loved everything she got me! First she made this cute doll all decked out in her red stripes. The dollie she is holding has a little heart on her dress, I just love it!

Then she got me this adorable authentic Amish baby outfit. I made a hanger right away and have it hanging on my peg shelf. Isn't it the cutest thing?
She also got me a darling Autumn mat, a cute jar full (well it used to be full) of yummy Valentine candy and a jar of apple butter.
Thank you so much Christina ! I am so glad that we reconnected. You are such a sweetie.

Well have a great rest of the weekend everyone. I am taking it easy because I tripped over the vacuum cleaner cord and landed on my knees so I am pretty bruised and sore. Thanks for stopping by, you are appreciated.
