My September Goodies

I have to start out by apologizing to my sweet swap partner Debb. I received your package on Monday and took pictures and everything, but I lost my cable to put the pictures on the computer. So today I borrowed a camera from someone else and took pictures.

With that being package ROCKED! I received:

  • "If Looks Could Kill" by M. William Phelps
  • A cute little bookmark
  • A sheet of Halloween stickers
  • A little Trick or Treat decoration
  • A tarantula gummy (which is not pictured because my son ate it)
  • A package of Halloween napkins
  • A Halloween picture frame
  • and a Monster Glow Wafer Light for my mouth (by the way this is awesome because I was looking for one for our black light pep rally in a couple of weeks!)
Thank you soooo much Debb! I love it!

Sorry about the low quality....I wish I could find my USB Cable!!!
