Christmas in July Gift Exchange

When Elizabeth {Chasin' Mason}  posted that she, Courtney {Sweet Turtle Soup}, and Jamie  {Cocktails and Carseats} would be hosting their 3rd annual Christmas in July Exchange I knew I wanted to participate. Christmas is my favorite holiday and being able to celebrate in July..that was a no brainer! I also love connecting with other bloggers and thought this would be a great way to do that! 

I was paired with Jamie from Cocktails and Carseats  who happened to be one of the hosts of this fun link up! To check out the fun things that I sent to her girls head over to her blog and read all about it! 

We got the sweetest package in the mail from Ashley {Everythings Hunky Dorey} and her two sweet kiddos Wyatt and Stella. 

 The presents were wrapped in the cutest paw patrol paper. Jack loves anything dog so this was right up his ally! Not only did they send sweet gifts for Jack and Graham she also included some chocolate for mama! She definitely knows the key to any moms heart is through chocolate!

 Jack was so excited to start opening the presents. He immediately saw the stickers and was pumped. He loves anything that has wheels and these stickers were trucks, cars, space ships..all boy!

You can tell Graham also was excited about the stickers! Jack was not so happy about that and immediately gave him something else to get the stickers back!

 While Graham was occupied with the wrapped package Jack started opening his.

 I have never seen this before but it is 3-D chalk! It's the coolest thing ever. You draw with this chalk and then put the glasses on and your pictures come to life. We have had so much fun with it!

Graham was also interested in mamas chocolate!

Graham got the cutest turtle that has little poppers in it and when it rolls they move about. Its been so entertaining for him and I've been using it to try and coax him to start crawling!

 The next thing Jack opened was bubble for the boys! It came with a cool bubble wand that is batter operated. We love bubbles and have had fun playing with this! Jack loves to chase them and Graham loves to stare at them!

 Sweet boy trying to show his brother the bubbles!

 Here are the awesome presents that they got!

This was such a fun exchange to do! We had the best time shopping for our friends that we sent gifts to and the boys loved getting to unwrap some fun presents for them! Thank you so much ladies for putting this together, I can't wait to participate in the next one!
