haha I'm sending most of them to my Joe Gibbs Racing friends at the shop in NC. Smaller shipments are going all over - California, Idaho, elsewhere in NC, and Ohio, among other places. :)

SS GIFT RECEIVED!   THANK YOU SS!  [[[[  :holiday15 ]]]]

 

Actually it's Reinholt1 posting on behalf of my 84 yr old mom.  When I stopped by today, mom met me with the box in hand saying "This just arrived, who is it from?"   I pointed to the "SS" in the return address and said "It's your Secret Santa".  At that, her face lit up and she said "Oh Boy! Oh Boy! Oh Boy!  I am opening it NOW!!!"  and she turned and ran back into her building and that was the last I saw of her.

 

20 minutes later she calls me on the phone:  "Do you want to know what I got??  I got CHOCOLATE!"  Boy you sure made Mom's day!  She's happy.   (She's probably eaten it all by now too.)

 

Mom also said that she received a mug with a purple design that matches her new jacket.  (Mom has gotten into some of her Christmas presents already...::sigh::  She is opening one every day, advent calendar style, between Thanksgiving and Christmas.   (And if she doesn't like me telling everyone, then she needs to learn how to write her own dumb posts!  ::ducking out of mom's reach very quickly: :))

 

Mom also found 2 knit summer shirts in her box that she is very happy with...one is a bright solid green which she says she can't wait for St. Patrick's Day to wear.   ("You can't find sold green shirts with this kind of green in March.  I can't wait to wear it.")  and a summery white shirt with a bright blue and yellow design with flecks of black.  Mom says she will "wear it with black pants to make the black flecks pop right out."  I know Mom is happy with them because she is already matching them up with pants and deciding when she can wear them!

 

I'll post pictures after I go over and take them.  (Well, as I said,  I think that small box of Russell Stover chocolates is gone by now so I think I missed that photo!)

 

Thank you very much Secret Santa...Reinholt1sMom is very happy with her surprises!

After the really rough week I've had.  The highlight of my week was getting the OE and SS out on time. :)

 

And I received two packages today.  I'm assuming SS and OE. I haven't opened them yet.  I did do the shake test.  One rattled.  hmmmmmm

Three people had great reasons for late shipping yet all three were able to ship ON TIME. That, to me, sets the expectation bar quite high.

We will see what tomorrow brings.

Oh my word. I just got back from a 12-hour shift today and was so surprised to see two packages waiting for me. I was like, "I didn't order anything within the past few days." Then upon closer inspection, they're from my Secret Santa. Thank you so much for going more than necessary. I would have been happy with one thing. You really just made my day, and my Christmas. I won't get to go home for Christmas to spend time with my parents because I have to work. I do have friends, but they're busy with their own families and life just takes a different course. What we had in common in the past is not what we have in common now. These two packages truly meant a lot to me: somebody cares. Thank you, again, my Secret Santa. I do appreciate your generosity, kindness, and thoughtfulness.
