One of my favorite things about blogging has been the community I've been fortunate to become a part of; I've been welcomed into a group of successful, encouraging, friendly, and wonderful ladies that were exactly what I needed. We share common phases of life which includes the ups, downs, joys, and 'sufferings' of motherhood. Specifically, a handful of us all with summer 'babies'.
A few years ago a gift exchange started and it's now in it's third year, how fun is that..?!
This week my baby turned four. FOUR. It's been so fun to follow along with these families as their babies have grown also, it's hard to believe how quickly these years pass. Now on to a very special package, all the way from CA..
Tyson received a package from the beautiful gals at Work it Mommy - Whitney, Kinsey, and Breilana. Let me just say, they sent the sweetest gifts of pure perfection..!!
Whitney mentioned she was a little nervous to come up with gifts for a boy, coming from an all-girl household, but she NAILED IT!! Seriously.
Bubbles + gun = little boy heaven!!
Dinosaurs?! NEVER enough dinosaurs.
Whitney filled the box with some extra-large, colorful pom-poms. They were the go-to for Homegirl, she gathered up as many as she could and kept a death-grip on them while we continued through the package.
We lovedplaying games as a family, so I know we'll have a good time with this connect four game.
I just love watching Tyson open gifts. He's filled with such genuine excitement, gratitude, and joy.
He kept exclaiming, 'this is what I've always wanted!!' When it came to this super-cool fireman Lego set, I especially believed every word he said. He's already got it put together like a pro and is such a fan!!
Whitney, Kinsey, and Breilana - Thank you so much for the awesome package filled with the most thoughtful gifts. You guys seriously nailed it..!! Did we already mention that?! Everything was so perfect for Tyson and will be thoroughly enjoyed, I mean it was 'exactly' what he wanted!!
Thank you again!! xoxo
