Peppi - You are a Superstar!

ArabellaMillerMarch 1, 2006

YAY PEPPI! Thank you!

My swap package arrived today while I was out and thankfully, I had a 4 year old to stand guard over it until I returned (not that the babysitter was going to open it, but he stayed with it, just in case!)

He was kind enough to let me open it:

WOW! What an amazing assortment of goodies - where to begin?

How about with the very cool spatulas, whisks (I LOVE whisks):

Aren't they cool?

And how about the 2 delicious Yankee Candles, and candle holder - one is Roses & Ivy, the other Apple & Rose:

Some wonderful Burt's Bees stuff - Peppermint Shampoo (you can't believe how good this smells) and lip balm:

Peppi was even kind enough to remember my poor old cat and send a treat for him. He's trying to act indifferent in the photo, but he really does love his treats:

Here's my FAVORITE! An adorable apron, isn't it funny?

Here's Lucy modeling the apron:

And, last but not least, some delicious Godiva chocolates:

Hey, 2 chocolates are missing! I think I see the guilty party:

Thanks for a great swap package Peppi! I'm thrilled with it!

I forgot to take a picure of the perfect little cutting boards and small flexible cake molds! Perhaps it's because I've already unwrapped them and put them in the dishwasher so they'd be ready to use tonight!

Thanks again Peppi!

I can see why you had to have a guard, and a cute one at that. That's a complete package! Looks like Peppi covered all fronts.

what a fun assortment of treat. I hope you post photos of the last few items later. Maybe while in use. I love the fact your son was guarding the package. Couldn't keep his older brother out of the chocolate once it was open could he? Wow Lucy has grown up so much! All of them are still so cute.

Good job Peppi, enjoy Arabella.

Love the pictures! And your descriptions of everything. The first one of your son WAITING, Lucy with the apron, the cat and last picture are priceless.

You know we must see the cutting boards and flexible cake molds. . .

Hmmm. I thought Lucy was saying "He got chocolate and I didn't". (grin) That's a very cute apron, though, and she has beautiful blue eyes.

Peppi did put together a very nice package, I can see why it needed a guard. I love the Burt's Bees stuff, it's great.

Enjoy everything, Ilisa, and be sure to show us what you made in the cake molds.

The kids are adorable. Lucy is getting big.

Great package Peppi!!

I can't wait to see those cake molds. You'll definitely need extra spatulas and wisks if Lucy is anything like my daughter. April has most of mine.

Enjoy!!

Great picture story and beautiful children! I can see why you were so excited with your package that you forgot to take pictures of some of it. I almost did the same thing. Enjoy!

Peppi, You done good!

Ilisa, so glad it made it and was so well protected. I had a fun day shopping for it. Bet you wondered what you ordered from Zappos, didn't you?

What cute kids and I see where they got thier good looks from. And kittie is a "Morris" cat too.

Enjoy!

Fabulous swap package! The apron is especially adorable, even before it was put on the even more adorable baby.

Looks like everybody in your house is happy!

Note to all: send either a baseball bat or duct tape when chocolate is included in swap packages for houses with kids.

Ilisa, you put together a nice presentation! Of course you had good "material" to work with! (And adorable models as well!)

Peppi, you have a real knack for swapping.
