[Christmas Fun] Blogger Holiday Gift Exchange.

Thursday, December 18, 2014

A couple months ago, Meghan emailed me about co-hosting a holiday blogger gift exchange with her. Being the holiday lover and gift giving lover that I am, I was totally onboard! We brainstormed a little, sent out some invites, and operation spoil our kids for Christmas commenced.

Mason and I were lucky enough to be spoiled by Laureen, Tyson, and Harper. I'm not gonna lie. I was pretty excited to see that our present was from them when it arrived on our doorstep!

Tyson and Mason are only a couple days apart in age so of course Tyson and Laureen had amazing taste in gifts and Mason LOVED them. The present arrived during the week and I saved it to open on the weekend when I knew Mason would have time to enjoy it and play with it.

Of course he IMMEDIATELY went for the goldfish.

He was obsessed. I had to open one and give him some to get him to move past the goldfish and move on to opening the presents.

After a wardrobe change and a snack, we were ready to open the gifts.

 (please note... the goldfish were always nearby!)

... and a Green Toys Helicopter. Mason was SO excited!

Laureen was SO SWEET and even included a little something for me. Even though we've never met, she picked the most perfect present for me. I absolutely love the note cards and pens (and the mint color!) and the EOS lip balm is my favorite flavor.

Thank you SO much Laureen, Tyson, and Harper! We LOVED our presents!

Mason and I were lucky enough to get to spoil Scarlett with some super fun presents. Head on over to Tawnya's blog to see what we got Scarlett for Christmas!
