'Tis The Season To Gift Exchange Part I

We participated in TWO very fun gift exchanges this year!!!  I really love doing this with the kids, it teaches them about giving.  You want well-rounded kids, show them the many, many ways they can give.

Tee and I decided on a book, ornament and drawing exchange for Teagan & Duke.  We met up one Sunday afternoon at Hollywood Farmers Market and hung out for a couple hours.  The kids hung out with a goat, had a jam session mini concert, we ate coconut cake from the Thai vendor, sampled fresh squeezed orange juice, apples, grapes, oh my!  It was fun!  We're very blessed to know The B family!

Here's what Duke gave!

They were so excited for gifts!

This drawing from Teagan is so adorable!  I love the curls in our hair and my eyelashes are fantastic!  Duke taped it to his toy shelf!
Book + Ornament exchange
They make such good friends!  It was precious watching their little souls take in the music, help arrange the instruments and offer up their chairs to kids that were smaller than them.

Awwww they're both too cute!! Chris totally hooked Teagan up with that ornament - Too Clean! What I love most about these gift exchanges are that kids help pick it out..and they're much more creative than we are LOL!

Ps. I miss the Hollywood Farmers Market LOL!
