Yep, I saw that, and I updated to say yours shipped since I would assume it should ship today or tomorrow. Either way it's ordered through Amazon and they usually ship pretty quick I find so it's all good Smile

Crap, did we talk about that? Are we waiting? Because I can pretend to, but ya'll know my patience level.

I don't think we did talk about it, I just decided it would be more fun to add to what will be under the tree...feel free to make a different choice, though! Smile

Mine will be a day late being shipped! I am working 12 hour shifts all week, so the only chance I will have to get to the post office to mail it will be on Dec. 2. Smile

baby_shultz, updated :).

Amanda, that's fine, thanks for letting us know and I don't think a day is going to matter too much Smile

Leigh, I really hope she (and you) like what I got her. I tried to incorperate everything mentioned on the questionnaire :).

As for opening now or waiting I don't think it much matters, we can leave it as personal choice :).

Okay, I opened it and gave her the two smaller things now. THANK YOU...she loves them both. The froggie bath toys were an especially huge hit. This morning she was begging to take another bath so she could play with them again! Smile

YAY! I'm so glad she likes them. I figured she'd like the froggies and it was soo hard to pick and choose what to buy. I figured I'd buy the doll since you said she likes them, the bath toys cause you said she didn't have much, and the book while isn't a 'board' book per say, I thought she'd enjoy and you can usually set volume setting on them, the ones I've ever bought my kids you can. Thought she'd enjoy that while listening to sound effects etc. Which other one did you give her? Not sure which one would be a 'smaller' thing between the doll and the book lol.

Either way I'm so glad she likes them. Be sure to post pics! Not necessairly of the bath but everything else Smile Merry Christmas Adair!!!

I gave her the froggies and the book. She really likes both, and yes, you can turn the volume down on the book pretty low. Thanks again! I'll try to get some pics Smile

I'm on the road but DH tells me mine has been received. I'm excited! He didn't tell me anything about it but that it's from the gift exchange. I'll see it tomorrow.

Also mine is going to be shipped a couple of days late, sorry! But I can tell you it's not being shipped very far so it'll be there really soon.

Yay! Glad she likes it--and that it fits with your Christmas theme. We're doing a kitchen too, so I guess I had play food on the brain Smile

We've received!!!! Thanks so much Kelly!!!! It really is the absolute perfect gift for her. She drags the unicorn around everywhere and she is even interested in the book.

Here are two pictures, two days in a row. I was in the kitchen cooking or doing dishes or something and she brought it in and laid down on it. I don't know why the bottom one is huge, I resized it on photobucket but it's still the big size.

Oh, my. I've been resisting the pillow pets but looking at those pictures makes me want to get Addy one after all. She loves to lie down on things on the floor like that...

So cute!

What cute pics! I was gonna pick up those pillow pets things for the girls but never got around to it. Hailey likes to grab a coat, Alyssa's blanket, anything and lay on it on the floor, so I may just have to get her one as well lol.

I spoke with Elizabeth and she ordered her gift online, just waiting for confirmation it's been shipped, so basically everyone's shipped, just waiting on all received :). Thanks for updating Kelly Biggrin

Awwwww I'm glad they were a hit!

It was so funny, when I shipped it the guy was like, can't you just drive it over? But then there would have been no peanuts!

Omg what a mess with the peanuts! That's so funny!

It's killing me with anticipation of waiting for Hailey's gift lol! We were supposed to go shopping today but didn't, and I thought, oh watch it come today since we weren't gonna be home. Nothing. Now watch, it'll show tomorrow while I'm out lol. That's ok, I need to buy stamps anyways hehe! Biggrin

omg the peanut pictures are too funny!!!

Kristina--we have discovered that if you hold the bath toy frogs with just their mouths sticking out of the water, you can get them to shoot water like five feet in the air. It's been quite a hit. Smile

So apparently UPS has lost my gift. Sad Not sure what's going on with that. I think I'll just buy something online from a U.S. website. I was supposed to give to Alice, so Kelly, you'll be getting yours late. Sorry. Sad

On a brighter note, I received my gift. Thanks, Beverly! Ainsley had a great time opening the gifts and trying on the clothes. She is such a girl!! Smile And her big brother Aidan "read" the book to her a few times already. Smile
