Secret Santa Soiree

This year I participated in the Secret Santa Soiree hosted by the lovely Georgie at Decisionally Challenged.
Well, my packaged arrived! What great gifts I received!
I really want to thank my secret Santa for the wonderful gifts, and the thought and care that went into the gift.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
And Merry Christmas to You and Your Family!

I was like a kid when the box came. I could not wait to get it into the house and take a peek inside.
What a lucky girl I am! :o)

Here's what was inside:

First, a Christmas card with very sweet greetings inside:

Next, a box of beautiful pink rose soaps. These are so pretty, they look like paper roses, but are soaps. Just peel a petal off and use. They are sweet pea scented...yum! They smell divine!

Then, yankee candles in delicious scents... I LOVE them!
Double yum!

The sweetest 2009 snowman ornament from a church fair . It was boxed in a snowman tin...wonderful! This guy has a prominent place on our Christmas tree already!

Wait, there's more...
A Christmas sack filled with...

Yummy chocolate treats!!
Now located in a safe hiding place away from little hands and big hubby hands !

Oh my! This very beautiful pink rose dish.
Now how did my Secret Santa know I have a thing for pink roses??!!! Hmmm...
This is so very pretty and I will treasure it forever.
I especially love the open work around the rim..oooh ahhh!!

And finally, a wonderful Mary Engelbreit Christmas Journal. I love this. Family , tradition and making beautiful memories for my Children are so important to me. This journal will make a lovely keepsake for so many Christmas' to come.

So, now you see why I say I am a lucky girl! :o)

I love all of my sweet gifts!!
Thank you Secret Santa from the bottom of my heart!!
Have a very Merry Christmas!!

Meet my favorite furry friend. This is our cockerspaniel Kandy (named so because she is so darned sweet.) I put this doggie sized Santa hat on her while we were decking the halls at our house after Thanksgiving. She did not complain one bit about it. She jumped on the couch near the fireplace and took a little snooze with her Santa hat on. I imagine she is dreaming of what Santa will put in her stocking this year. I'm sure she will find her stocking stuffed with lots of doggie treats and toys on Christmas morning...afterall, she has been a good girl all year!
