Was I surprised!

To start off today's post I just want you to know that this is Day 12 or 21.  Won't be long before we have a giveaway!  Don't know what yet, but I am sure I will find something.

I got off work early today since I didn't have very many patients to see.  So I was home about noon when my doorbell started ringing.  We only have a doorbell on the front door and no one we know ever comes to the front door.  I went to the door and I couldn't believe it but there stood our Rural Mail Carrier with a box in his hands.  I knew I hadn't ordered anything so why was Jimmy delivering a box to this house.  Maybe one of the kids had ordered something.

So after I thank him nicely for bringing it to the door, I look at the address label and find it is for me.  The return address was from my dear friend Joanne over at Splitting Stitches(Make sure you run over to her blog and see what she has to giveaway to some special person!)  Joanne used to live just a couple of hours from me until her and her family moved to New Hampshire last year.  Usually I know when to expect something from Joanne.  It wasn't my birthday!  It isn't Christmas!  So what could this be! 

It is Mama and Daddy Mucinex that had come to visit their babies! 
  (The babies had arrived quite a while ago in another package!)  So Mama and Daddy will be joining the 5 mucinex babies living in my sewing room.  That is until I get a chance to mail something that needs some packing materials!


But that was just the start of what was in that box!






It is Christmas afterall and I am totally behind on my shopping!  

Not really and I am so glad!

So I ripped into that Christmas wrapping paper and what should appear--not any reindeer for sure!  So what can be better! 

A Moda Bakeshop Sampler!


Aren't all these little 2 1/2" squares just yummy!
 So Christmas came early to my house today! Thanks Santa Joanne!

I am even going to keep the box!  You always need a box for shipping out prizes in a giveaway!



Hope you are having a great day!

Awwww what a sweetie that Joanne is! I see her doing random acts of kindness all over this blog world!

BTW - didn't I see one of these Mucinex peeps over at Kelly's I Have a Notion last year?

Ha ha ha...the Mucinex family! That is just too much fun!

And I am jealous...I saw those Moda Sampler boxes at the quilt show last week. I asked the vendor that was selling them what type of "sweet" they were. She said they didn't have a name, so I think we should write Moda and tell them to call them "Brownies"! :o) What a "sweet" friend to send you such a great gift!

XOXO,

Cyndi
