Pay it Forward Gift

Awhile back, PoopisieBlue posted about this Pay it Forward tag and yesterday a package arrived for us from England! A glowball that squeaks! This one is MINE, Mitch! Don't even think about stealing it from me!

And PoopsieBlue sent mom this most awesome book! Mom says this afternoon we'll light the fire in the fireplace and dad will be watching the NY Giants play football and mom will read her new book! She can't wait! There was also the neatest rubber frisbee-type toy in the bag too! Mom wanted to take a photo of it before Mitch got ahold of it! Too bad, mom! You'll never get it now! What a goofy boy!
Thank you so very, very much for our pay it forward pressies, PoopsieBlue! We love them all! You've turned our boring Sunday into a fun Sunday and we just love that!

So here are the rules.
"The exchange focuses on doing an act of kindness without expecting anything in return other than that the recipient will, in their turn, pass the kindness along and 'pay it forward' in their own way.

This is how it works...
We are going to agree to send something fun, inspiring or uplifting to the first 3 blog owners who post a comment on this entry. In turn you will then post about this on your blog, link to us, then send something to the first three people who sign up to play along through your blog.
There are no cost restraints, BUT don't go crazy! The little something you send can be something you made, bought, were given or found. No biggie, just a gift that will make the person smile. Maybe something unique from where you live?
And, remember that kindness don't have to involve money; there are untold ways to help others every single day, everywhere you go - just look around."

So until tomorrow, when it will be Mitch's 2nd birthday....................

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch
