My goodies from my Honeypot Swap!

I was planning on participating in Whatcha Working on Wednesday but during work yesterday I received a phone call from school that my son, Colton, was sick and running a fever. A few minutes later, I got a call from my husband, who had busted his finger open at work and was headed to the hospital for stitches! Needless to say, things were a bit crazy!
When I finally got home, there was a package waiting for me . . . from Germany! I don't know anyone from Germany and couldn't for the life of me think who this was from.
As I tore open the package, I found the cutest Christmas card. Inside it read, "Merry Christmas to you and your family - From Suzie - Your Honeypot Swapie!"
She had all of the goodies wrapped up so I couldn't immediately see what she had sent.
I did find a few packets of German Gummybears on top! My kids and I thought these were so neat. I started tearing into the wonderfully wrapped gifts like a mad-woman! She sent so many wonderful treats - lots of Chocolate goodies - I can't read what they are but the pictures look yummy! She also sent me a Gingerbread Man ornie. He has a gingham pocket on his front and it is filled with Christmas sprigs. I also got a Gingerbread man stocking filled with lots of little pieces of German chocolate!

The other ornament I received was a small Christmas Tree carved out of wood. It is very detailed to be so thin! Wonderful craftsmanship on this piece!I haven't gotten into the chocolate yet - my daughter ate a small piece that was in the stocking and said it was good so I am gonna give it a try tonight. I did get the ornaments hung on my tree but that is as far as I got! Now my daughter and son are both sick. The husband is home nursing his badly injured finger and I am planning for my neck and back MRI tomorrow. There are 4 of us and not one feels like moving! It will definately make for an interesting few days!
I hope everyone has a great evening!

Hope everyone is feeling better soon. Ouchie on your hubby's finger! My dad got his stuck in the saw a couple months ago. He's lucky to have his finger.

What a fun package from Germany! Gotta love German candy and chocolate.

I see in the post below that you are blessed with a deer head in your home as well...
