Secret Pal Strikes Again!

Our August theme was Keeping Baby Safe, and Lauren sure will be safe now! First of all, check out how my Pal decorated the shipping box...each side is different.






The box was filled with little gifts wrapped in red tissue...











and each had their own tag with a hint of what was inside.











Here's the hints and what the gifts were:
  • Would Lauren be safe if she was swinging like a monkey in front of the window when you weren't looking? - cord wind-ups for blinds

  • Would Lauren be safe if her momma couldn't see her big brown eyes on the way to the park with Addy & Lucy? - rear view mirror for the car so I can see Lauren in the back seat

  • Would Lauren be safe if she decided to walk out of the house late one night to go visit one of her China sisters? - adorable soft, Asian doll for Lauren to hug

  • Would Lauren be safe from the fashion police if she didn't have these? - totally cute barrettes

  • Would Lauren be safe is she unbuckled her car seat and climbed up front to drive with her momma? - "Hands off" buckle covers (pretty cool idea!)

  • Would Lauren be safe if she had nothing to cover that beautiful skin of hers? - totally adorable, Asian style PJ's

  • Would Lauren feel safe at home if she knew one of her little China sisters was here with her? - door knob covers. This one also says it's a clue to who my Pal is. Hmmmm....wonder if this means it's someone who will be in China when we are?

  • Would Lauren be safe if she accidentally gave herself a shocking frizzy perm? - shock guards for the outlets

  • Would Lauren be safe running across the room to give her momma a big kiss with hair in her eyes? - snag free rubber bands

My favorite items are this adorable doll...


and these oh so cute Asian inspired PJ's...


Thank you, Secret Pal, you are the best!

Hello from your secret pal. Glad you liked your gift. I had fun putting it together. Although...I made an oops!

Would Lauren be safe if she decided to walk out of the house late one night to go visit one of her China sisters?" should have been on the door knob covers. The Doll was "Would Lauren feel safe at home if she knew one of her little China sisters was here with her?" The doll is the hint to your Secret Pal! :) Hope you had a great holiday weekend!
