This year Hudson and I participated in a blogger holiday gift swap for kids and it was SO fun! Erinn from Strawberry Swing and Other Things helped organize us and pair us up with secret Santas. The task: shop for another blogger’s little one and send a $20 limit sweet surprise in the mail. Hudson absolutely LOVED getting an early Christmas present in the mail…and it was fun for me too!
Our secret Santas were Michelle and her cutie pie son HDawg from Ten June!
Want to see what we got?
Hudson LOVES dogs so so much….so he was crazy about this book! His favorite page is the puppy that looks like his very own real life puppy, Wrigley. Melt. My. Heart.
Hudson also loves his puzzle….and loves handing me all the pieces and watching me put them back in place….he’ll get it one day I’m sure!
Thank you so much Michelle and HDawg! It was so fun opening up our surprise gift. You totally nailed it! And I think that our boys would for sure be bffs.
Participating in this gift swap was SO much fun….I’m already totally on board for next year too….what say you ladies?
Hudson and I played secret Santa for miss Harper and Jess from Little Baby Garvin! I hope Harper enjoyed her box of goodies! I had a blast shopping for a little girl!

Hey, it’s me Emily over at They Call Me Mama. I am so happy to be a part of sponsoring The Girl in the Red Shoes this month. I recently started reading Julie’s blog and can’t get enough!
I am a 20-something,
almost 30, small town girl who met a city boy and fell in love. Mark and I have been happily married for almost 6 years. God blessed us with a twin pregnancy and the Lord has baby Ryder on his lap. We are so blessed to have Wyatt here on Earth with us! Only 21 months later our family expanded to a family of 4 when we welcomed our princess Sloane into the world.
To sum me up in a few words: I am a Christian, wife to best husband, SAHM mama & 2 pups, lover of Diet Coke, Mcdonalds, cleaner, wanna be baker, decorator, obsessive organizer, and business owner…Oh ya, and I am in love with my Chiropractor. 😉
