I Love Packages

A few weeks ago I participated in a Birthday Swap over at Seriously Shawn.

Yesterday I received my package in the mail from Bea. She sent the perfect gift. One of the most important things to me is to create an unforgettable childhood for my girls. I love to focus on the experiences we can have together. So she sent me this. . .

Three beautiful aprons for my girls created by Studio Eight. My girls absolutely loved them. In fact, they loved them so much that when I got home from the gym at 8:30 last night they surrounded me as I collapsed on the porch and begged to bake something.

Well they should have been getting ready for bed, but they were so excited about their new aprons that I knew that I couldn't make them go to bed. Luckily I had a box of Pound Cake mix, so we whipped it up quick (and then had to wait 50 minutes for it to bake). They didn't want to get out of bed this morning, but oh well. They created an awesome memory thanks to the beautiful aprons from Bea.



Thanks Shawn for the swap and thanks Bea for the perfect gift. Now I can't wait for Kristen to receive her gift from me. . .

The aprons are cute, but the girls are cuter! Perfect stair steps!!! Baking with mom will always be a fond childhood memory for them, and three cheers to Bea for sending such an adorable gift!

What beautiful daughters you have!!! They look adorable in those aprons, and I bet they will remember the night that momma let them stay up late and bake a cake for a long time to come.

So glad you all loved them! Ever since Shawn assigned me to you & I read your blog, the giving them an unforgettable childhood has struck a chord with me. May you have many happy baking memories together.

Those aprons are ADORABLE! What a thoughtful gift! I remember when I was little and I always wanted to wear an apron while helping in the kitchen. Your girlies are so cute!
