That's okay. I got the package before he saw his name on it. I'll wrap them for you. The light sticks will be fun (I'll let him open that one Christmas eve). But goodness I want to open the big one. What kind of pin is that one? The smaller squared one looks more like the size of pins we traded for, but I sure don't remember seeing the size of the other one on any lanyards. It's gonna drive me crazy until Christmas. I will be good, I will be good, I will be good.

My pins are wrapped and will be going out tomorrow.

My bad, I don't remember who gave which. But we rec'd packages from DJT and Fire14.
In Wyatt's package he found 75 years with Mickey and Goofy as horse drawn carrage driver Pins along with Disney Old Witch card game and Mickey Gel pens (which Mommy promptly claimed as her own).
In Alex's package he found a Buzz Lightyear pin, a Buzz & Woody pin and a Mickey topiary pin that he promptly traded to his brother for TWO Star Wars Pins. (Wyatt loves cast pins) He also got a bag a coal, but he did not find it funny. Until we told him he could give it to his Papaw. Then it was funny.

Thank you so much for letting us play in this exchange.
