This year we participated in the the 2011 Corgi Blogger Secret Santa Exchange again & had lots of fun shopping and wrapping presents for our recipient. But we had even more fun opening the gifts we received!
Thank you so much for all the gifts! You spoiled us! And the wrapping paper was adorable.
Mom set all the presents out on the floor & let me pick which one to open first.
Naturally I went after the best smelling one! I pushed it all around the living room before I finally got the paper torn off. Yummy treats!
Then I went for the fun one! I tried & tried to get the ball of the stinkin cardboard but Mom finally stopped laughing & helped me.
Mom also finished unwrapping the rest of the gifts cause I got what I wanted ~ BALL!
Thanks so much Sadie & Laurie!!! We've already used the travel bowls when we went to the grandparents, munched on some of the treats, played with the balls & thrower (mom forgot to take pictures) & modeled the santa hat (see last post).
xoxo, Charlotte & Angie
We also want to thank Lulu & Kat of Indignant Corgi for hosting the exchange!
We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! We were blessed as usual to have so many friends & family to celebrate with including a secret santa.
Every year I try to get Charlotte to pose with a santa hat but she never cooperates, she must get that from her dad :) I was hopeful this year because her secret santa (who I will reveal in the next post) sent us a hat with a cord on it plus optional beard, but she still wanted nothing to do with it!

On this day, April 29th, five years ago I was doing this. . .
While the world was watching the royal wedding this morning, the husband & I were waking up to begin our 5th year of marriage. These last 5 years have been a crazy ride with plenty of ups & downs, but I wouldn't change them for the world!
And now for one of my favorite pictures of our night. . .
