Been so swamped I completely forgot to sign up this year! DOH!!!! No worries, pogiporkchop - I'm not asking to be added late. :-) Just know I will happily don elf ears wherever needed if necessary. :holiday11


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!"

I'd be interested to fill in, should the need arise, as well.  I'd just need to get the okay from DW, so I'd probably just need half a day's notice.  Let me know if any issues shall arise.

I ordered an ornament for the OE last night, and I am just so excited about it!  I hope the recipient loves it as much as I do.

You can add me to your volunteer elf list too.  Hopefully you won't need us  but you never know.....

 

 

Maybe the three of us should become Santa's "other helpers"  instead....... :wife:

 

....and pay the slouchers a "visit"....if ya know what I mean.....:fryingpan:

Several have volunteered to be elves which is great to see.  The spirit of the season is alive and well here at GD!

Finished my shopping on my lunch break.  I'll try to get everything wrapped up tonight and in the mail tomorrow.  EEEEK, I'm so excited!  Is it bad that I put more thought into these exchanges than I do my family gifts?  :cheesy:

Rumor has it I'm getting my first dc#... two weeks before Thanksgiving. Guess I better break out the bamboo nog and cookies again... not much of a break for the Firm!

The first numbers are in early... I think I'll start keeping track of the date now, not sure numbers have been in this early before.

OK I will be the first to post pictures. I got a nice surprise in the mail today. Thank you so much now I can try to teach myself to crochet. I have wanted to learn for years. I also got some yarn to start with and some scrapbook paper.  Thank you again.

Very nice! I love that yarn. It works up well. When it comes to crocheting, if you have any trouble, you can always look on YouTube. I have done it multiple times, lol.

Yay! First package received! (Don't start celebrating yet, my accounting firm... lots of work to do yet, get away from the bamboo nog...)
