frosty (blogging) friends are the best!

So it sounds as though some snow is set to fly this weekend around here (hmmm... maybe Mr Weatherman read my last post?) The kids are excited, especially Jenny (our 10 year old Korean student) although Emily is hoping there's NOT a snow day next week. Crazy right? Actually it's because she has upcoming exams and doesn't want to miss any classroom time. Smart girl!

To make sure that I received at least a little snow this winter, my good blogging friend Julie agreed to have a snowman swap with me. Well, her package arrived on my porch this morning and totally, totally made my day. Look at how wonderfully packaged all the goodies are... it looked lovely but I must admit, it didn't last long!

Julie over-gifted me and I love everything she sent... especially the maple leaf cookie cutter! How Canadian, eh? Awesome! So here are the gifties...

A wonderful red checked kitchen towel (I LOVE the red!), maple leaf cookie cutter, and sweet mini snowman pillow...

...a tall snowman figure for my mantle, two mini snowman magnets (love 'em!), a beautiful scrapbooked journal, and the most amazing snowman runner...

Let me tell you, by the time I hit "post", these goodies will be placed around my home, all ready to greet the snowstorn that's been promised. All I'll have to do is add hot chocolate and the flurries can begin!

Thanks so much, Julie! I'm sending warm winter hugs across the miles!

Aww, how sweet! Hopefully you'll get some good snow. We're expecting snow starting Saturday and all through next week, at least it's in the forecast for every day. We'll see what develops, though.

Hugs,
Pam

Wow, Girl! You hit the jackpot! Good thing the mailman made it before the snowstorm, eh?? :-)

PLEASE make a snowball for your southern blogging friends. It has been unseasonably warm down here, and I'm itching for just a day of winter. Snow would be amazing!

Thanks for your comment on my bobbin can. You should make one....so incredibly fast and fun!
