*~ 1st Birthday Gift Exchange ~* JULY 2008


[SIZE=6][COLOR=Purple]This will be the official thread for the Birthday Gift Exchange.

You can post that you have received your gift (just to let the gift giver know it's been received) and when your LO's birthday comes along, post what was given, pics, THANKS, etc.

I hope everyone involved enjoys the fun!!!

We got ours today ... but I didn't know that's what it was (as it came directly from the store, and it was a place that I order from Lol ) so I opened it.

So here's Jack with his new one size Fuzzi Bunz diaper! Thanks birthday buddy, we love it!!!! That's one of my favorite brands, and I've been wanting to try the one size (I sold all of his smalls and haven't bought any FB mediums yet). This was a great gift and perfect for us! Sorry he's not smiling ... I was keeping him from playing with his toys and he wasn't happy about that. Wink

Sarah,
The dress with the purple and peach is of special fabric. I used that fabric when I made my first quilt. It was a quilt that I made when I was very depressed. I made it to stay alive. I call it my Life Quilt. I'm glad that I can share it with your family.

okay...since i have permission Smile

first of all.............thank you sooo much Gwen and Jack!!! It's perfect. It's adorable. It's sooo generous! We absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE it! And can't thank you enough!!!!

The handmade card:

and as if that wasn't cute enough...the princess theme continues:

cloth diaper from cloth couture (i've been wanting to order from Allison for forever...it's like you read my mind!):

is that not THE cutest pattern ever!?!

And a cloth wipe and a wipe solution nugget that smells heavenly! (left side of pic), a fleece soaker (right side of pic...the back in shown in photos below...there's a crown on the back...so cute!):

And the soon-to-be birthday girl opening:




again, Gwen and Jack, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!! What a wonderful gift! We feel very blessed!!!!!!

Leigh Anne, I love the pictures! Sydney with the soaker on her head made me laugh. Smile Natalie wanted me to make her one with a crown too (I did make her two soakers after I made Sydneys, but no crown :lol:)

As far as swim diapers, I got a couple from Target and they work really well. Smile I think they're by Right Start.
