I am still in shock from all the awesome things I got in the mail yesterday from my Secret Pal, Peekaboo! I just love everything. While I was making dinner I burned one of the Chanel #5 incense (the boys wanted to see how it worked). I LOVE that scent!!! After dinner and dishes I sat outside with all my new stuff and looked through the Crochet Pattern-a-Day calendar. I can't believe how many patterns there are! Well. Duh, how many days are in a year? It is AWESOME!!! I will never be able to make all those. Then, if that wasn't enough, my secret pal gave me the 'Big Book of Crochet'!! I already see some baby bibs in there that I want to make for a friend. This book has everything! (I guess that's why they call it the 'Big Book of Crochet'...(I'm a little slow this morning... need more coffee....) It even has some bathroom baskets to crochet with fabric strips. I've never crocheted with fabric strips, but I have crocheted with bag strips which reminds me, that bag that I am making my mom is in the Crochet Pattern-a-Day calendar! I've seen a lot of people from C'ville have patterns in there- I won't say any more in case there are some people out there who haven't gotten it yet, I don't want to spoil the surprise... Oh this is hard... I'll just say there is a LOT of stuff in there that I want to make already!! And, last but certainly not least (crochetwise, anyway..) A Family Circle easy CROCHET!!!! magazine!!!! I am LOVING this! I buy FC Easy Knitting all the time, had I seen this (I haven't gotten out much since we've moved.... not knowing where things are kind of has something to do with it...) anyway had I seen this I definitely would have bought it!! Come to think of it, I am going to go see if I can find one for my secret pal.... I am going to be busy with some wonderful, wonderful, new patterns for a loooonngggg time! I feel like a kid in a candy store (with money) hee hee! Then, Peekaboo also sent all three boys a Pez Walgreens truck dispenser. They all loved it (even the thirteen year old had a smile on his face!) Which isn't rare, but... And the two (okay, he's almost three...) year old carried his Walgreens truck with him everywhere yesterday!! I am not kidding, when he went to bed last night, he had his Walgreens' truck in his hand! He loves it the most I think. :)) I just love everything you've sent me, secret pal Peekaboo!! I don't know how I can ever 'repay' you, except maybe by after the 'secret' is out, and I find out who you are, I can make you some things out of the books you have sent me!!

Thank You Peekaboo!! :)
