Thank you Chief Elf for my card.  I got it today.  For my SS and OE, I'm waiting to open mine Christmas day and will post pix.  I just want to say this has been one of the best exchanges of all I have done.  Everyone got their stuff with no elves, I believe from last post.  It has been a true show of the Christmas Spirit that has been shown here this year.  I haven't opened my gifts yet, but all of you here have made me feel good knowing people STILL care in the world.  Merry Christmas everyone!

For those curious: Kitty in my pic is current furbaby, Mew, curled up in a box far too small for her. Ha! "If I fits, I sleeps!"

 

NASCAR fan (particularly JGR pit crews - many friends there), diehard UM Wolverine fan, animal lover, car girl, cookie baker, singer, bargain hunter. Yep. That about covers it. lol :cool:

The first is from my OE and the second from my SS. 

 

 

THANK YOU both!!!  And Merry Christmas!!!

 

Not in the picture, but my SS also included my DD14 and sent her a nice mug and hot chocolate, which she loved!  She drinks way too much of that stuff during the winter. lol

Finally I'm able to open my wrapped gifts. I feel like I've been waiting for forever.

 

From my SS (the wrapped gifts) I received the first season of ER and The Bone Bed (the first book in the Scarpetta series)  My goodness,   This was just beyond beyond.  Thank you so much.

 

And from my OE I received a Hello Kitty bag, a bag of mints (yes!), Hello Kitty pencils, pink fuzzy socks, and an amazing snowman ornament.  It's to nice for my tree. I'm afraid it will break but I love it.

 

Thank you so much Chief Elf for the gift and card.  And thank you tyreejames for the amazing gifts,  I don't know what to do first. Watch ER or dive into the book.

I'd like to add I was in Hello Kitty heaven this Christmas.  These are just a few of my Hello Kitty gifts.

This was so much fun! I loved seeing everything that you all got (and of course receiving my own gift)! Thanks PogiPorkChop for your hard work and the Christmas card!

My SS, misstaken, wins best present honors for my Christmas. That tool kit is awesome and will be coming in quite handy as I get to putting up some shelves and other things I've been wanting to do but didn't have the right tools to do it with! And the two fuzzballs are happily chasing the furry mice around the floor as I type. :) :gdcat: Oh and of course they think the best present was the box everything came in... lol *cat trap* :g_laughin

Aw, I'm so glad you all like it! My dad always said that a girl should always have her own tool set, no matter what! :gdhug5:
