The Mommy-Files occasionally has "swaps". A swap is where a group of people get together, exchange names and send gifts to one another. Swaps are a great way to get to know your fellow bloggers. I missed the cut off for the Halloween one but was able to be a part of the Santa Swap.
The 2009 Santa Swap was a huge hit with almost 70 participants. We each filled out a quick survey to introduce ourselves to our swap partners and to let them know about things we liked.
For the Santa Swap, rather than everyone randomly being assigned names, we exchanged names. My swap buddy was Katie from Why Bother?. Katie sounds like a ton of fun. She has one boy, Jake, age 3 1/2. Jake, is your typical boy, the good and the bad! Katie lives in California and recently celebrated her first 1 year anniversary with her boyfriend Joe. (CONGRATS!!! I wish you many more to come).
I mailed out my box on Monday (it should arrive to you soon!!!) I hope Katie and Jake love all the items I selected for them. I had a great card for her but forgot to put it in the box, sorry!
My package arrived from her today and my daughter and I had so much fun going through it. Katie included a great card that explained why she selected each item (I should have thought of doing that). It was great to read the thought that she put into each item.
Thank you for everything! I hope you like your box as much as I love (and will enjoy eating) mine.
Merry Christmas! Off to break into the bag of Ghiradelli squares!
