§ RED, WHITE & BLUE 3 § - 2010 Swap. RM# 2
Just wanted you to know I found the cookie crumbs--clever using red, white and blue cookies. LOL
Rev up your engines ladies... woohoooo... time to pick that right Red, White and Blue for your buddy, if you haven't done so.
Laughing here, just mailed it yesterday and checking to see if my buddy got it..lol..I'm just too impatient...
Already have my USA RWB items from previous swap sitting out on the deck, best I go search for something Canadian to decorate for our July 1st...thanks for new room Jaye!
Yeap--just blind. LOL I received some things yesterday I had ordered for my box so it should be ready to seal and send soon. I love this swap!!!
I can't stop looking for more RWB!! It's an advantageous habit ain't it...
fabrics.. RWB... fabrics... RWB.. :D
Betty, you must be the only Canadian in your block to celebrate July 4th! Way to go!!! You need to create a CanAm flag!
Told Kel, that if he doesn't get my flag pole up, then he'll have to do a RWB flower patch for me. (Me think he'll do something about a pole).
Jaye, even the gransons ask me why I'm decorating in USA RWB decor..."where's the Canadian stuff grandma???" I'd better get at it..
Do you take your flag post down winter months Jaye?
Just explain to your grandsons that you are promoting world peace, Betty and that it starts with your neighbour!!
If I had a pole, I'll keep the flag flying even in dead winter, Betty.
Let's hope Jaye he decides to do the pole rather than the garden..
iF YOU HAVE GIVEN OUT NAMES THAT IS OK I Can wait till next one . unless someone else signs up & You need another player let me know .
Yep, me too Betty. I've been wanting one for years now!!
You know the same old sing song.. "When I can get to it". Think the pole will be cheaper and less labor intensive than a new bed!!
Susie, look out for the sales after July 4th! You'll be well prepared for next year!
Lolol!!!! I better get out of here before Sis Kathy finds a pole to hit me with!!!
...what was that streak that just passed my house? LOL
New thread, thank you Jaye. My box is sealed and ready to go. I'm trying to wait at least until June 1.
Going to be hard seeing that ready box every day and not mailing it.
Happy day yall!
Faye, being that Sister Kathy there has already mailed her box out, go ahead and do so.
If you hang on to that box any longer, it might 'burst'!!
Oh/Oh, was I not to mail mine yet? probably get there way after you all receive yours, think border agents love looking in my packages, they'll have a fine time trying to open the one I sent..lol
That's funny. Betty! I have the great gift of taping everything very well, also!
Julie, just couldn't find a box other than a crate that would have proper dimensions so paper/tape is all it took..lol..even used a pen taped in one corner as to hope my piece didn't get broken..yikes..sometimes I'm just a little too creative for my own good..watch it get there and be broken..oh well, other treasures in the package will make up for it!
Bet Julie you are counting the days until school's out?
Betty, think we'll need a special courier for the next RWB!!!! Perhaps a luggage full!!!
Ladies.. get ready.. patriotism from these 3rd graders will make you stand proud.
Got this in an email.
After all the bad press over a few teachers who stepped out of line teaching songs to our children, this one is one you will be so proud to hear. At the end of the song you can order the sheet music.
I hope this sweeps our country and gets sung in all our schools. The music teacher wrote the song and had all the third graders sing.
From the third graders of Tussing Elementary, Colonial Heights, Virginia .
Thank you Susan. That is the prettiest thing and the most heart felt thing I've seen for quite awhile.
May I send this to my Pastor, hoping our youth will learn it to sing Sunday in July?

Lovely, thanks for sharing!
Jaye, if nothing else I'm sure my swap buddy will get a laugh out of it..should have taken a photo but I didn't...
Well a bath and relaxation is called for..2 more hours of weeding tonight, figure if I put 2 hrs. a night the beds might get done by September...
Of course Faye. That's a terrific idea.
Rest well Betty. Now you can 'patiently' wait on the box that's sent to you!!
If any hasn't followed the shenanigans on Raise My Baby Swap III, check this out.. I promise you some chuckles.
Jaye, that video was so nice! Thanks for sharing it.
It's official, my RWB is now an American, crossed over about 11pm last night...who knows with any luck someone might get the challenge to cut off paper/tape without destroying what is inside...lol before the weekend..
omg! kathy thank you!!!!
my box is full of goodies and go figure my camera batteries are as dead as a door nail
will be back tonight to share i love everything she out did herself.so many cool things!
oh lol mine might go out next week im still adding things geez
Before the weekend, Betty? Oh my... if I know this lady... she'll be ultra shock when she gets her package! Hope she doesn't need someone to give her CPR!! Nope.. don't you worry Betty... she's pretty tough and can take happy surprise well.
Liz, you should be the first to get your RWB as you're the first to sign up!! When was that.... August 1st. of last year??
Hurry and show off what Sis Kathy got you!
