Maryanne,
That's cool how you did all the boxes with the colors and all. Great job!

Carol,
Congrats on the Great Grandbaby! It is neat that she was born on the day you arrived, all the more special. This make you officially and old fart though, lol. You know I'm only kidding.
Sorry about the luggage mishap! I've never had that happen. I once had "damaged" luggage that somehow came open too. I think it was a worker who was a thief looking for something good in my suitcase.

I know which one I want...giggle,giggle.....

Maryann you did a fabulous job with the posting, thank you so much. And Carol, you deserve and award for organizing this swap. I just can't believe how much planning went into this.

Anita and Susie, praying for you and we lifted you both up at my church this week. You both are loved.

Sassy, hope your brother is on the mend and praying for him and you also, hugs to you.

This has been THE FUNNEST swap I have participated in! Is this the last round? Who picks next?

Great job on the list, Maryanne. I would have no idea how to list it the way you did. I think I am number two.
Oh, it's hard to be at this point in the stealing part... will I get to keep what I steal? I really want the Highland Lord daylily so I'll pick
Box #3.
Be kind, ladies, go for a different box. Okay?

Can I ask a question. If someone steals a box from someone that has already picked in this round, what does the person get that just had their box stolen? Do they get the box that the "thief" was just holding? I just want to be clear.

I'm so bummed I had to step out of this swap, so many boxes I'd love to have. You girls make some good boxes! I apologize for having to run out the back door, but can't concentrate on boxes right now and I would want to send a good box.

Susan, thanks so much for your prayers, thats really sweet of you. Unfortunately, I'm afraid it too late for that. But please don't stop.

You girls have fun stealing from each other:))

Actually the way this game is played is any box can be stolen from the ones who have already picked. The higher the number you have is the one who has the last choice and can take any box. Boxes 6 and 3 can be taken from Momcat and Jeanne and they will have to pick another box.

Sassy-We miss you Anita, Susie, Maryanne and all the others in this swap. Maybe someone else will do another one when it comes their turn.

Anita posted on the traveling daylily thread and is doing well for all she has gone through.

Maryanne-You outdid yourself on the outline above....thanks you computer whiz. Do you give lessons?

Here's a list we can copy & paste. Each time a player chooses a new box, just state so on the list. Like, Deb had 15 from last round, but wanted #6..which Melinda originally held from round 1. So, now Deb has #6, and Melinda has #15.

I hope that makes sense!!

2) Jeanne- holding #9..traded for #3

6) Susan - holding #10

Hi All,
The snow is coming down here! I'm not sure how much we'll get overnight, but it might be a foot or more. Spring is never coming,lol.

I thought the box picking would be farther along. It will be interesting to see if anyone keeps their box or tries to, lol.

April,
Lol, that was funny.

Sassy,
I'm sorry that it doesn't look good for your brother. I know how hard that can be.

April- It's snowing here also...it rained so much yesterday and last night it will not stick here either. I will have to look up Murrayville and see where you are in Georgia. I used to live in Atlanta and go there often to shop.

I stayed home from work today because it looked so awful when I got up. The news said it was suppose to stay bad, but it hasn't snowed in awhile now! Well, I got paid for the day.

April-I go right by you when I go to the Mall of Georgia. We do go to Gainesville sometimes to shop also. You won't see much snow where you are believe me. We live in the mountains and don't see much here either. When I was growing up here it snowed alot in the winter months but not anymore. The sun is now out but the wind is bad.

Marie-Where are you?

LOL, April, you scared everyone off after I stole a box from Carol. They are all going to sit tight on what they have!
Anyway, while there is not much to read on the board, I decided to post what I decided on for when I host the October Swap. It will be:

The Secret Haunted Garden
Send plants in Halloween colors - Ghostly White, Batty Black, or Phantom Pumpkin-Orange, or plants with names related to Halloween, or fall items from your "Secret Haunted Garden" - mini-pumpkins or gourds, or jelly, jams, preserves, pumpkin bread, etc. (For those where it is too late to send plants, seeds from those types of plants are just fine, too.)

Okay, now, somebody can come and steal my box. I promise, I won't be upset. All of the boxes are really nice.
It got very cold here last night, but my little winter seedlings all seem to have done fine. I don't know how they survive. They have been flooded about three times in the last two weeks. Any indoor plants that were that wet would be goners for sure.

good morning everyone. perhaps storms in the last few days have been keeping people away? sure hope it's not my breath!

we had ferocious winds last night. at one point i thought there was a plabe hoovering over the house and when i looked out, the trees were bending every which way. i thought for a minute they would announce on the news that we had had a tornado. it's still rather windy, but nothing like last night and the rain finally subsided. the old addage "in like a lion and out like a lamb" sure holds true for the month of march!

i too thought this would be moved along much further.well, perhaps by tonight, more players will come out of hibernation and chose their next box.

Remy - yes, I am redoing my bathroom (needed a breather from the other house!) LOL Almost done - had to take a break, as I cut one piece of trim wrong ~ grr! Now I have to get back to it!

I hurried up with the list in case more people picked tonight but I remember now that Bunny will be picking tomorrow. She only has computer access from work.

Jeanne,
Those WSed seedlings sure are tough!
I like your theme. I of course am always down for jams, pumpkin bread etc.

Maryanne,
I'm glad you got the wind and we didn't. If there had been wind with this much snow. It would of been a mess! Is shouldn't complain too much. Having all the snow on top of all the seeds(poppies and larkspur) I spread everywhere last Monday, I should get very good germination when spring actually arrives.

Marie,
Lol, that is too funny that you were remodeling. Oh which reminds me! I forgot to tell everyone, my father spoke of building me a deck off the back of my house this summer! He has put a few in at his place, and it would be a cinch for him now. Those rebate checks are coming. I got the letter, so I will finally be covering the hideous asphalt!

Maryanne thankyou for your great list when you take a box the person gets the box you are holding. as far as momcat we will hope that by the end of this round, she no longer has her own box. I steal box #6. or susan has wanted to join us maybe she could trade with mom. this just never happened so I too am at a loss. bang bang bunny. hugs carol

thanks for the explanation, carol. we have done something similar as a christmas pollyanna type thing, but if the person took your gift, the person loosing then had the option to take another - makes it really cut throat.

everyone seems to be coveting #6.

so carol, how is the baby? i sent you an email, did you get it? i want to hear all about her and can't wait to see pix. when will you be home?

Hi all,
Ok here's the deal. I assume Momcat will get to take the last turn after Shirley being she has her own box. I assume that if she has the choice she would want box 6 back, but I'm under the assumption she can not take back a box she already took and had stolen. Because if she wants box #6 back I would want box #1 back, and I can not take box #1 back. So I want box #6. Now if it is ruled she can take back box #6, then I want box #9.
Lol, did that make sense?

Carol or anyone want to rule on what is the correct thing to do?

Yeah its my turn finally..that is if we get an answer to Remy's question. The way the original game started is like Maryanne said when your box got taken you picked any box you wanted. The way this one was played is you got the one the new chooser had. When Momcat's box was taken if she had picked another box she would not have ended up with her own. Anyway now what to do?????

so remy, if momcat gets to pick after shirley and you get #9, what does gale get? does she take your 7?

this is a big reason i didn't play this time, i have NOOOOOOO clue.

isnt' it funny how there was no movement whatsoever for a day or so and all at once, we are at the end of the picks?

carol, come on out and make a ruling on how this should work.

are all the boxes accounted for at this point? everyone's has been spoken for?

Wow!! After a long lull in the action, everything was wrapped up quickly. I didn't think I'd still have my box at the end, but those Iris were just too tempting!! If it comes down to it, I could just keep my own box, save on postage, and I won't have to go out and pick up another pack of Stargazer lily bulbs for myself, and the other stuff, well I'm sure there will be other opportunities to use it in other boxes! Just let me know what happens with me and my box!! I won't be back online until after work tomorrow (around 5 or 6pm).

Okay...Umm...I think I'm confused by Remy's question! LOL
But I think she's asking if she can steal back the box she had in the first round?? Yes??

Uh...if that's it, then, Miss Remy...the answer is...YES. You can take any box you want in the second round. That's the fun of it. It wouldn't be any fun if you couldn't steal like everyone else has gotten to!

So...if you want box #1, then by golly, swipe it back!!

I think that, yes, we should give Momcat the chance to choose another box, if she wants. Or let some one NOT playing (like Miss Earthly) choose a player to trade boxes with her. That way it's nice and fair. :O)

Um...so, Remy?? Which box was it that you wanted?? LOL

carol, where are you? busy with the baby? travelling back home? a ruling is warranted.

shirley, did you pick a box yet?

momcat, if it winds up you still have your box and want to play (as opposed to your post about keeping your own box), why don't you just act as the last "picker". i can't imagine anyone would have objections, but if they do, please post them here.

i'm sure since this is a march swap, you all want to wrap it up so you can pack your boxes and get them to your partner by the end of the month.

just my 8 1/2 cents

It doesn't look like Shirley picked a box, yet.

If I get to choose again, and I can choose a box I already had, I would choose #6. If I need to choose one that I haven't had before I would choose #3.

Let me know,

remy_gw

Melissa,
Lol!
I'm going to try to explain again for you : )
In round one you pick a box. In round 2 your box can be stole, but you can't steal your original box back. Once your box is stolen, you end up with other person's box. So lets say I'm number 7 and I was holding a box and number 4 took my box. When it comes to my turn as number 7, I can't take my box back from number 4.
Now, I have played like Shirley/Maryanne said above that once you box was stolen, you picked another. So the next player took a box after you replaced yours. But we just swapped out the boxes. So one a player stole a box, they gave the box they were holding to the player they stole from.
Now Momcat should become the final turn being she is holding her own box that she constructed.
You with me so far. Ok. I know Momcat wants box #6, and I would like #6, lol. If Momcat was allowed to pick one more time and take back the box she already picked( #6.) I'm not going to choose it, because I know Shirley doesn't want it, it is her own box that she constructed, so Momcat would get it.
So if that is the case I'll take #7 since I know it won't probably get stolen from me(well, Shirley could still steal it,) lol, but that is my second choice. I obviously, like a bunch of others, like #6, and also though I've sent 2 boxes to Shirley, I've never received one from her.
Does it all make sense now? : )

anyway, remy, you sound like you have the rules all together and it sure sounds right. so as it looks now, everyone has a box that they chose and all boxes are accounted for, correct?

everyone straight on who get's their box? if so, let the swapping begin :-)

Ok sorry girls but can't resist 5 days old okay I made a mistake rules are you aren't allowed to steal a box from the person who's box you are holding, so we can go one more round with those rules or take a list of names of people who will trade with mom then she can pick from those names only. what do you all think ? we will decide as a group. carol is home. hugs, I miss my baby carol

Well, Carol...I jumped the proverbial gun, and have already shipped my box to Amy. I assumed (and you know what that means) that since no one else had tried to steal it, that she was the only one that wanted it. SO...Off my box went to her house!

On the other side of the fence, I think having names of those willing to trade with her would be great. I'll slap my name in the pot for her to choose from, if she would like. So she could grab #11, I'll play fair. :O)

But I KNOW she wants box #6. LOL
I think that's been stated numerous times. :O)

As for the swap, I would like to just leave it as is... have already gotten things ready to mail and e-mailed my address to the person sending to me.
Just me 2 cents worth. If the group decides to redo something, I can hold off on mailing my box and relabel it.

I'd really like to keep box 14 but I will go along with whatever everyone decides.

I love my box but will put it up for momcat to choose also if she wants so lets go the way of putting up your box only if you want to. whoever has #6 hold on to it, it has been a popular box fine job Shirley.Try to get those boxes mailed as soon as you know for sure who it is going to Bunny, sorry I shot you for nothing.

carol, my goodness she is just too precious and i know how hard it is that you just can't get enough. God bless everyone. how is clarissa doing since she gave birth? what does the baby's name mean?

i wasn't involved in your swap, but it appears everyone had a blast getting to the end result. now that i know how it works, if you ever run it again, i'll be sure to get involved.

i sent you an email, hoping you got it.

speaking of grandbabies, i actually got a "senior's" discount the other night because she was with me. i asked the woman if i looked old enough to qualify and she said she didn't think of it as a matter of age, she did it because i was a grandmom. no argument here, i'll take the discount.

hi to everyone - hope you are all well.

Thanks, Veeja, for offering your box. To make this easier, for me, at least. I will just hang on to my box. I was going to go out and buy some Stargazer lily bulbs for myself, anyway, and the other goodies, I will just hang on to for now. I'm sure there will be many other opportunities to gift those.

This month was really interesting, Can't wait to see what Susan has planned for next month.

Remy-I was hoping to get your things dug this week-end but they are calling for rain tomorrow and Saturday so we will see.

So glad everyone had fun with box #6 and I promise if I get your name in any of the swaps you will get a box similiar to that one, especially momcat (Deb) who was so sweet about it all. Maybe whoever does the April swap will let me have your name Deb. Even though the April theme is Salad Bar you can eat daylilies right?

Got to get my house straightened up, my brother is coming tomorrow for a visit and we are taking him out to eat for his Birthday.

Hi All,
Nothing exciting going on here. Though I am going to the Rochester Flower Show tomorrow so that is exciting. I am going to remember to take batteries for the camera this time. I'm not sure if anyone remembers that fiasco from last year. I went to take pics of the gorgeous delphiniums and my camera died.

Susie,
Nice to see you post again! It sounds like you feel a touch better. I hope this is a sign of a new spring in you : )

Momcat,
Sorry everything got messed up with you this month.

Carol,
That is a great pic of the Great Grand Baby. It is nice to hear she is a sweet quite baby too. Clarissa is a lucky girl.
I'm not sure how you thought I said Momcat has another box, lol. Of course I missed and misread a couple posts on this thread. Things were starting to blend together.

April,
Your soaps look great! I'm sure they smell wonderful too.

Shirley,
You remind me I need to request a Sat. off so Gary and I can take my brother and his fiancee out to eat for his birthday!
There is no hurry on digging anything for me, ok.

Gale,
Your trade page is a bit light on the wants. I'm going to do my best to guess. If I have any seeds you want, please let me know.
Have a good night everyone,
Remy

Melissa,
Thank you so much for my wonderful box. I really love everything. I told my little boy it was coming in the mail with chocolate-He had it opened for me when I got home from work minus a few chocolates!!! I cant wait to plant my lilys and daffodils I may do it tonight if our rain stops. I also love the seeds and will be starting them ASAP. Everything was perfect. Thank you again, Amy

Susan, Your box went out today! Hope you enjoy! Amy

Hi all,
The garden show was quite a spirit lifter! Seeing so much in bloom when outside is so gray is heaven. I also got to hear garden writer Jo Ann and her husband Jigs Gardner do a presentation on gardening. They were a funny old couple.

Carol,
No problem. : )

I should be mailing to Gale on Monday. I did find something for her box at the show : )
Have a good night everyone,

Remy-What a delight to go to a garden show when like you said everything is all gray. Love all those gorgeous blooms. We have had two days of heavy rain just like the weather man predicted. Atlanta, Ga got hit hard by the tornadoes but they didn't come this way thank goodness.

After our meal with my brother 6 of us went to see the play Cinderella. It was outstanding, such tallent in the young and old. I don't miss any of the plays if I can help it.

Carol-Wishing the best for Clarrisa and Devera.

Hi Everyone,

Been having a few bumps here at home, sorry havn't been able to get on. My car has been having problems, my husband may have to have carpal tunnel surgery on both hands and we are one of the unfortunate ones who has a flex rate mortgage and been trying to get our mortgage modified. There is the very remote chance we could lose our home, so thingsa have been hectic here.

Amy, I received my box today, thank you it was wondrful.

Jeanne, Your box is going out tomorrow, I just got my car back today and had to work so didn't have a chance to get to PO. I am very sorry to be late.

Hope you all are having a great time gardening and getting your boxes.

Carol, I have your box all ready to go. I decided that if I mail the book and magazines separately by media mail, then I could squeeze a few surprises in the box. Gosh, I just remembered that I forgot to label one of the plants. Well, it is a Rex Begonia. The other ones I hope you don't already have.
Anyway, they will go out tomorrow. Will post DC then. Just thought I'd let you know why you might receive one before the other.

Remy~ Do you remember those "sticks" that you sent me back in September (I think it was)? :O) I just wanted to tell you that all but Long John Silver made it. The other 3 have leaves & are looking quite good, all things considered! One has even branched out, and is about 12" tall and 6-8" wide.
I have them growing behind my laundry room, so pretty soon, I hope to have the backside completely covered by blooming pretties! :O)

Melissa,
Too bad about the one LJS, but I'm glad to hear the others are good. They made it through one winter, so they are good to go now! Don't worry, not this year(though 12 inches already!), but a couple years from now, you will have a wall of roses.
I do plan on rooting more this year. I'm going to try to get them going sooner, so they all have extensive roots, not like last year where some had more than others. I'm still baffled by that, but now I know.

Marie,
"suppose to start warming up some time in May" LOL. I know how you feel!

Gale,
I went to the nursery to get soil yesterday, and I had to do the same as you, look away, lol!

Theresa,
As you can probably figure, I'm jealous of you. What I would give to be sore from gardening right now. I'm not sure I should of wrote that, I'll probably have some horrible garden mishap once I finally get out there, lol.

I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice for starting a craft and seed round robin. I was thinking about having a limited amount of people and starting the box out with crafts I made and some seeds. It would go down the line for each person to take what they want and then come back to me at the end. Do you all think that would work or would it end up MIA? Thanks for your thoughts. Amy

Amy,
The only Round Robin like that I participated in was one that had a Victorian theme - Victorian crafts and flowers (seeds for those flowers that would be grown in a Victorian garden.) It went very well and people put in great seeds and made wonderful craft items. I can't remember who it was who was hostess, but she kept very careful control over it and we had to tell what we took out at each stop and what we put in. I think most people took a digital picture and posted it before remailing so eveyone could see what was being sent.
I have not participated in one that ended up MIA but sure have heard of that happening... not with Our Bloomin' Friends! I don't want to suggest that... just in reading through various Round Robins have seen people post that it happened.
Good luck if you decide to do that.

Amy, (a little OFF topic)
I have a tote bag that you hand sewed from a previous craft RR and LOVE it (palm tree pattern on one side/blue, brown pebbled fabric on the other side). Jenell (Lunamoon) hosted the swap. It turned out well, everyone exchanged crafts and Jenell seemed happy with the RR. I know I really enjoyed it!
Netta hosted the Victorian RR (seed/craft) that Jeanne mentioned, and that went VERY well too! Everyone added such nice items to the box it was so hard to choose what to take! My only advice would be is to check the feedback forum for each swap participant. Also, make sure that delivery confirmation is mandatory. So you can track the box at all times.
I know I'll sign up!

My box went out today for Theresa! USPS #0307 0020 0003 4320 4954.

Marie,
I'll post as soon as my box arrives! I'm really looking forward to it! Thanks for the "Bee" items too!

Gale,
I hope you got your box. It said it was delivered. Hopefully, you got it, and have just been away from the computer.

Amy,
Glad to hear no tornadoes out your way.
Some of the best RR boxes were run by people who were up front about being picky about who joined. Checking the R&R forum and/or asking for references is not a bad thing in my opinion. I was contacted one time by a person running a RR asking about a potential participant. I gave a thumbs up for the person who happens to be a bit quiet, but a very good trader.

Maryanne,
There was something I was dying to tell you earlier, and now I can't remember what it was, lol!

Have a good night everyone,
Remy

Maryanne,
LOL! I just remembered!! The finch feeder, I got it up, and the finches love it! I'll have to take pics on a warm day when I can sit for awhile to get some good shots.

Hey Everyone!

Boy is it windy here today, but I'm not complaining, considering Missouri and other areas terribly hit by flood waters. I can't believe how much is poking out of the ground. I dug up so much stuff last year and put it in pots just in case I moved and it looks like I'm still here Can't go yet, stuff is happening (soon) I hope.

Remy, I look forward to seeing pictures. I forgot one other type of feeder, so one of these days, it'll show up at your door. I'll wait until I have some other things to send.

I took my mother out to dinner last night for her birthday. She wanted to go to Red Lobster. I'm a real food snob and I'm not big on chain restaurants, but my goodness, what an excellent meal we both had - from soup to nuts. I even started with a drink (Brandy Alexander). That's not something people make well but dang, if this bartender didn't hit the nail on the head. If I wasn't the driver, I would have had a second.

Carol, are you ignoring me?

Amy, I used to do some of the different round robins. Some were good, some were absolutely excellent and some were a complete bust. You have to set the tone, be really involved and set the rules and make sure who you are playing with is a respectable player. I know everyone has to start somewhere, but like you've already been told, read the forums and I'm sure you will recognize names when people begin to sign up. I love the craft idea. Luna used to make great earrings and always included them in these type robins.

I'm just looking over the themes for the upcoming OBF swaps and they sound like fun.

Hope everyone is well,
Maryanne

Hi All,
I got a couple messages from Gale. After the first one she tried to post here, but was having trouble. Anyway, she didn't get the box! It is on its way back to me. The post office over her way messed up!! Once it gets here, I have to take it back to the post office so they can re-send it! Well, at least it is cold out. The couple plants I have in there I'm sure are just fine. If it was summer, I would be really POed.

Maryanne,
It is nice to hear you have a good dinner at Red Lobster with your mom. The last time I was there with Gary(someone gave us a gift card) it was not so hot. Brandy Alexander! That's not a common drink. It is yummy though. Humm...I wonder, maybe that helps the service. One time Gary and I finished Christmas shopping and had extra money left over, so we went to the Fridays in the mall and splurged with the extra cash. We ordered Champagne and had the best service and meal ever from a Fridays.

Talk to you all later,

A man was blissfully driving along the highway, when he saw the Easter Bunny hopping across the middle of the road. He swerved to avoid hitting the Bunny, but unfortunately the rabbit jumped in front of his car and was hit. The basket of eggs went flying all over the place. Candy, too.

The driver, being a sensitive man as well as an animal lover, pulled over to the side of the road, and got out to see what had become of the Bunny carrying the basket. Much to his dismay, the colorful Bunny was dead.

The driver felt guilty and began to cry.

A woman driving down the same highway saw the man crying on the side of the road and pulled over. She stepped out of her car and asked the man what was wrong.

"I feel terrible," he explained. "I accidentally hit the Easter Bunny and killed it. There may not be an Easter because of me. What should I do? "

The woman told the man not to worry. She knew exactly what to do. She went to her car trunk, and pulled out a spray can. She walked over to the limp, dead Bunny, and sprayed the entire contents of the can onto the little furry animal.

Miraculously the Easter Bunny came to back life, jumped up, picked up the spilled eggs and candy, waved its paw at the two humans and hopped on down the road. 50 yards away the Easter Bunny stopped, turned around, waved and hopped on down the road another 50 yards, turned, waved, hopped another 50 yards and waved again!!!!

The man was astonished.

He said to the woman, "What in heaven's name is in your spray can? What was it that you sprayed on the Easter Bunny?"

The woman turned the can around so that the man could read the label.

It said: "Hair spray. Restores life to dead hair. Adds a permanent wave.

Happy Easter Ladies!!!

Hi All,
I hope everyone had a happy Easter. It was very nice here. We had an Italian/Polish pig out, lol. I over ate big time.
I got home today and there was a box, a bit bigger than a large priority one, waiting for me, but it had a commercial address. I was baffled at what it could be. I won a box full of Hallmark Ornaments! I was a second place winner from some promotion at Christmas that they had.

Gale,
I got your box back on its way! You better get it this time, lol.

Maryanne,
They had a use your hallmark card and enter(or enter online without purchase) to win. As you probably know I use my card a lot, lol! I don't know what first place was. I'm better off not knowing so I can't be disappointed, lol.
The box contained the whole Kringlewood Farms collection. It also included Mischievous Kittens, Cool Decade(2007 ornament), Coffee Lovers' Tree(This is cute. It is tree made of coffee mugs.), 2007 Snowball and Tuxedo(polar bear and pengiun) series ornament, Puppy Love, and 2007 Mary's Angels series ornament.

Shirley,
How exciting! I'll let you know when it gets here.

Susie,
Good to see you post! : )

Time to go make dinner,
Remy

Carol, sending you an email! Please let me know if you don't get it.

I hope you got the package that is now showing as having been delivered. I don't know whether to send this other box.

Does anyone know if Carol has had an address change?

Theresa,
Yes, Carol did move (either last summer or in the Fall)? I'll have to search for her new address, and email you when I find it.

Hello ladies and happy every Holiday I missed.
To those of you who do know me, I am back and mentally back on track (I think). To those of you who don't, well I was I am a member, love everyone here. Went away to do some great mission work and had some very tragic things happen.
Many hours of therapy later, and actually returning to the Dominican I think I have healed, I am not bitter, sad, or frightened to leave my house any more.
I am able to talk about it and I feel that I can share with postive feelings now.
But enough of that.
Am I to late for April? Please tell me that I can play in April?

Max is 4 and we just looked at Co-op preschool. HE is a mama's boy and didn't want to go to big boy school yet.

Maryanne~ I have a box for you that I need to send, but um lost your address.. So Merry Christmas when it comes.
Ahh. I just don't know what to say or who to say it to because I am scared I will leave someone out.
I tried to read as many posts as my brain can handle, but I am sure that I will need some help.
Babies and ornaments, tornados and ahhh.. I am not in Kansas anymore.
Please feel free to email me with any personals that you'd love to share.
I apologize for being gone so long. If there is anything that you want to know email me. If I need to re-join let me know if there is room.
Mayanne_ my big sis.. I hope all is well, miss you and thanks for all your support thru this, even though I was a bad lil sis and became an introvert.
But guess what? I am back and better.
Missed you all

Laura.... beans

Hi All,
What a day! I worked 1/2 a day, got home and found my box from Shirley waiting for me, but I had to hurry up to get ready to go to Plantasia(the local garden show) with my sis-in-law. We had fun! Here's us being silly in the kids' garden area.

I'm the butterfly.
So I finally got home uploaded the photos and got to open the box! Lots of irises, etc. as you all know : ) That in itself was very exciting to see them all. Plus Shirley added a window birdfeeder. On top of that she added a beautiful journal and photo frame. They are both so pretty. I am always needing photo frames so that was especially psychic! What a great box! : ) Thanks so much Shirley! I love it all.
I've had such a good and lucky time with things lately. I sure hope it is to make up for all my very bad luck a couple years ago, and not that April will be horrible, lol.

Gale,
I'm glad the pkg made it this time! : )
I'm also glad to hear your hubby loves maple syrup!
Have a good night everyone,
Remy

Laura-What a pleasant surprise to see your post. You just never know when an old friend will re-surface. LOL
I guess that is why we should always keep an open mind about someone joining back in at some point. I thought Max was around 4 now because my GDS will be 4 in May and I knew they were about the same age. Please post a picture of him when you can. Are you still doing the beautiful jewelry? I know many of us have a piece of your jewelry.

Remy-So glad you received your box, have fun with all that planting. I have one of the picture frames like I sent you and just love it. They were made in India. I have never seen such a cute butterfly. LOL

LAURA! I'm so glad to see you post! (It wasn't there last night when I posted.) Welcome back : ) I was just thinking of you. I don't think April's stuff isn't up yet so don't worry about being late : )
Yes, as Shirley said it would be nice to see a pic of Max now. I'm sure he's grown a lot.

Has anyone talked to Susan about starting a new thread for April?
