Mom received her package yesterday.  She asked me to post and to tell her secret santa how much she loves it and to say thank you.  Mom received a  "very pretty bracelet"  (which she told me at least 3x how very pretty it is.).  She says it is a blue-green in color and she thinks "it is very versatile and will match a lot of her outfits."   I will take a picture next week and try to get it posted so all can see.  Thank you again Secret Santa!

5 people haven't notified me they've shipped.  I'm ashamed to say I'm one of them :/. I will get mine shipped Monday, and I hope to hear from the other 4 by then as well.

I am happy to remind Bopeep and the other 4 that if you have a Meijer's in your neighborhood they have postal substations at their customer service desks.  8 am is when the desk opens.  I am always in and out in just a few minutes.  WAA-----AAY better then that line at the post office or even at UPS.  My favorite "secret" place to send out packages this time of year.

 

 

This helper elf is also on standby, should you need it Bopeep.   (We should find out where each other lives Wittenlover. (With luck we could be just a couple of blocks from each other.) We could shop together and send out the packages on the same reindeer!)    Actually....HEY BOPEEP!  Can Wittenlover and I have dibs on each other for secret santa next year???  We could just skip the whole shipping and tracking number thingee and use the money to meet each other for lunch and have us our own Christmas party.  You don't need all those tracking numbers anyway do you Bopeep?

Mine shipped today. I've PM'd the last 4, just to check in, and already heard back from 1.   A couple of them haven't been logged in to GD in 2 or 3 weeks, so I hope everything is okay with them.  Still hoping we won't need elves, but good to know we have some if we do need them.

 

Wittenlover and Reinholt1, I'll see what I can do, LOL.  (Now, if you do end up with each other, it's going to totally look like I rigged it :))

Received my package today! I was going to wait till Christmas to open it, especially since everything inside was so nicely wrapped, but I've NEVER had any kind of willpower! You really overdid it! I received a beautiful battery powered light-up angel, an angel pin that is already on my coat and a huge bag of my favorite candy, Lindor Truffles. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! I love it all!!


Sometimes the thoughts in my head go for a walk out through my mouth. This is rarely a good thing. :no:

I hope to get my cards in the mail this week.  I have received a ton of cards this year.  I've missed getting them in the mail - I haven't participated in a few years!

 

Can't wait to display them all!

Looks like several were delivered, or are "out for delivery" today.  Fun!

 

Please be sure to post here when you receive your gifts, even if you plan to wait to open.

My SS arrived. I don’t know when. It was in a box we keep on the step for packages that no UPS, FedEx, or mail person has used before this. I’m going to hold off on opening if I can.

At this point, I don't THINK we will need any elves. YAY!  I have one person I have not heard anything from as far as shipping, but one of their recipients posted received so I guess they've shipped.  We have one other that has not finished shipping, but they've posted why and hopefully will be able to ship this week.

 

We do have 4 ornaments, and 3 SS, that the tracking shows delivered but no one has posted.  Please please post when you receive your package. Even if you aren't opening until Christmas.

Don't need any helper elves?   That's great news!

 

On the other hand.......Hey Chief Elf.....since you may not need any helper elves this year,  I just saw these really cool swipe light sketchers sneakers ....do you mind if I borrow one of Santa's reindeer and go get me a pair???

I finally opened my OE gift.  Guilt free.  :)

 

I received. Not 1, not 2, but 3 ornaments.  Wow! Thank you so much.  I also received lots of yummy peppermints.  :gdlicklips: The box they were in is so adorable.  :2cloud9:

 

Thank you so much. 

 

 

I just love how the reindeer one looks on my tree.  The other two are currently occupying my desk at work.  :holiday10

I received a surprise gift from JenDeere.  Some fuzzy socks, a Christmas movie collection, and a hot cocoa mug set.  I wasn't sure what they had for me to pick up at the post office, as I wasn't expecting anything.  I loved it, and I am so so appreciative! Thank you!!
