Secret Santa...blogger style!

December 19, 2013

This year Hudson and I participated in a blogger holiday gift swap for kids and it was SO fun! Erinn from Strawberry Swing and Other Things helped organize us and pair us up with secret Santas. The task: shop for another blogger's little one and send a $20 limit sweet surprise in the mail. Hudson absolutely LOVED getting an early Christmas present in the mail...and it was fun for me too!

Our secret Santas were Michelle and her cutie pie son HDawg from Ten June!

Want to see what we got?
