Secret Pal Revealed!!

For the past year, we have participated in two Secret Buddy (Pal) swaps. The secret swap through the DTC/LID January 2006 group called Precious Pandas (Yahoo group) has ended as each of us have received our referrals, our new daughters' name and photo.

We received a box with a beautiful Asian doll from our Secret Pal. Dana Whittall revealed herself to me with this wonderful final gift.
Here's some of the neat things she has sent for Alyzabeth and for me!! I have been using a purse she sent to me all this summer. So many gifts!! It has been wonderful!

Check out the Whittall blog and hopefully they will have their referral in hand by October!

I have a dolly just like that! I think Connie gave it to me. She's so cute!

I really enjoyed having a Secret Pal when I was waiting. Looks like you've had a good one.

We have this little doll. She is one of the Tongginator's favorites (because she is small enough to cart around easily and because she doesn't smell funny like the Asian doll Playful Patty. I know Alyzabeth An will love it!

Oh, to see her so new and fresh looking. Jaden's Corelle beauty's name is ShengNan and was named after our Chinese Foreign exchange student from last year. (Who by the way, will be back with us for several years THIS Saturday! Woo Hoo!)

Enjoy this wonderful doll! She is truly the only toy that Jade cares about. She goes everywhere with us.

Your little beauty is sure to love her.

Your secret pal is awesome!

Hope all is fine with the storm... we are copping the constant rain and wind right now... I hate it...

My sis gave me that doll! :O)

I'm "hunkering" down with you (how I loathe that word, by the way- what IS hunkering anyway??)... was glad to see it's losing strength as we speak!

Oh how I love these dolls! Aren't they beautiful? The girls have two of them and I sheepishly admit.... I like to play with them too..;) What a fabulous gift.
