Ok - nothing like waiting till almost the last day to link up.....but.................................
We survived the Holidays!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And that is a statement. 2 Dogs, 2 Adults and one baby and all the gear that comes along, plus gifts! Whoo. It's hard to pack "cowboy light" for 3 nights away from home with a 3 month old.
In addition to all this we had borrowed the folks stock trailer - which meant we needed to return in that weekend too. So we stuck our gifts for everyone in the neck and away we went - jingle all the way!
One of the holiday events I look forward to is Christmas in the Country - Blog Exchange. Thank you Jamie and Laurie for putting it on again!
My blog exchange partner was Alison from Illinois - she is a former Ag teacher and as a FFA/Ag Nerd till the end I've got a lot of respect for Alison! She blogs over at Outside the Ag Room.
I had a lot of fun checking out her blog and creepin on pinterest :).
In the end I sent her a Pioneer Woman candy dish. I love the blue depression style glassware and its just the right pop of vintage color! I also included some homemade soap from Shoofly Soap Company. Because homemade soap is the cool-est.
A couple of days before Christmas I received a lovely surprise from Val in Iowa! She blogs at Corn, Beans, Pigs and Kids!
She sent me a really neat wreath!! It's currently hanging on our door to welcome all those that come to visit! How did she know I have wanted to get a wreath for our door ? Val did a great job!!! We love it - and how cute are the little pennants?
