I may have mentioned this a time or 2, but I love Christmas!  When I saw people on twitter chatting about ornament swaps, I joined on in.  The first swap I was a part of, I was paired up with Alicia from Walking in Faith.  She sent these super cute mitten ornaments that HJ and I immediately hung on the tree.232323232%7Ffp543;3)nu=3276)68;)56 )WSNRCG=386 68758732(nu0mrjNaturally, I took to etsy to find an ornament to send to Alicia’s family.  I found this little wood carved reindeer from Eve Tait’s Creations.   I hope it looked as cute in person as it does in this picture! il_570xN.386027280_ifr6

The other ornament swap I took part in, I was partnered up with Ashley from Crayons and Caffeine, another single mom blogger!  I have interacted with Ashley a number of times on twitter, and was excited to get to send her something special.  She told me that her family likes to get an ornament every Christmas with the year marked on it, so I saw this sparkly little treasure on etsy, from the shop Vanity Cases and had to send it their way!

Participating in the ornament swap was like getting Christmas a little early.  And I love having beautiful new ornaments to decorate our tree with.
