Everyone has posted or otherwise let me know they've received their gifts, except 1 ornament. I've reached out to her to make sure she got it (tracking shows it was delivered). Looks like another successful season!  Thank you all.  We usually post the list on Christmas Day, but I might do it early this year.

I must say you gave me a challenge this year, stevierocks... Most of my normal go-tos were not things on your list, so I had to get creative. Hope you caught the theme of a cozy day in to enjoy some reading! :) Sincere thanks for giving me the opportunity to rise to the challenge and give you fun things! (Part of why I love doing SS every year!)


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:

Thanks for everything this year Bopeep! Both for running it this year as well as for my SS stash. I knew you would indulge my Christmas treat craving :)

ok.....dumb question here....

 

How are y'all getting your full size pictures into the body of your posts?  For those of us who did them as an attachment, they appear not to be working anymore.  

 

 

I can't wait for Secret Santa 2019.  It is one of my favorite things to do, whether here or work.

You are very welcome, and I hope you are enjoying it. Did you like how I snuck in the question about nuts or no nuts in fudge, in the Discord discussion? LOL.  THEN, funny story, when I went to get the white chocolate chips I accidentally picked up confetti instead of just plain white chocolate. I didn't have time to go again, so I hoped it would just look festive. :)

Are you using "direct link" in Photobucket (or whichever photo site you are using)?  That's the only think I can think of we might be doing differently.

Merry Christmas!

Wow....what a wonderful group of people we have on this board. I am so thankful to be a part of it. I am also thankful to MsYves and DanteGirl. I truly enjoyed my ornaments and goodies and my SS Package ( GO PANTHERS ). I had been so busy this year and time flew past me, but when I took the time to sit down and opened both of your gifts I really felt the love. Thank you both so much 

 

Bopeep - great job again and I look forward to next year. 


Can I just say..... I LOVE my secret Santa!!! LOL I normally wait till Christmas to open any gifts. However, the package came and as I was taking the gifts out my granddaughter got so excited. So, I let her help open them... First, was my new belt (Which I really needed!) Next was the Bag Balm (Which I was almost out of!) next we opened the puzzle (which is perfect for the next time my mom comes), Next was the fuzzy Santa socks (too cute and warm!), next we opened the starburst (The Red Ones ) Then she opened my sudoku book and she cheered, (she has sat in bed with us at night helping us do sudoku) And then she opened a set of her books and squealed!! So, then she opened her next set and showed her mom! I will edit this post with pics....

Kash, thank you soooo much! You went above and beyond, tickled this gal alot this Christmas

 

It was my pleasure! Funny thing is I tried searching your past posts to get more hints of your likes and dislikes, and you do not disclose much! lol  So, then I was on a hunt based on your list for something special.  My husband asked why all the search boxes in our history had Kentucky Wildcats when we live in Michigan.  So, glad you were pleased.

Thank You SO MUCH!! My granddaughter just loves those socks, she wants them on all the time.  And the other day she told her mom she wanted to go color in "her" book.  So, she brought her to me and said does she have a book at your desk? LOL Thank you so much for including her in the gifts, that was true love and the meaning of Christmas! God Bless my friend.

Thank you NAFCMF for my gifts! The mints were perfect and I hid them so I got to enjoy them all. The ornament immediately went on my tree and I’ve received a compliment on the candle already too
Belated Merry Christmas to you and yours!
