Who Gives a Hoot?! (Besides Owls)

There's one thing that does give a hoot,
and it's this new addition to our Christmas tree. Isn't he cute?

I was pleasantly surprised to find three package slips in the mail yesterday! Two were boxes of gifts from family members, and the third box was from my ornament swap partner, Meg. I co-hosted the ornament swap with Alisha and Meg this year.

Now Meg not only sent me the cutest little owl for our tree, but I also received a bag of her homemade peppermint marshmallows too. If you already read Meg's blog, you probably know that she is quite the baker. Getting my own little bag of her homemade sweets was quite the treat! Needless to say, my little bag of sweets is almost gone. Yum! Thanks Meg.

My husband and I are in the middle of packing up all our belongings for an upcoming move to the Orlando area, so our apartment is an absolute disaster area. Moving might be is one of my least favorite things ever, so receiving a cute ornament in the mail made my day. It came just in time, because I'm actually packing up our Christmas decorations today!

Now I'm off to pack some more....

Do you like owls too?
Have any on your tree?
