Well, not that anyone will even come here anymore to read this...but here goes....I'm sitll excited, so I'm still going to post as I would have anyways....hee hee....

I received my SS gift today from gr8girls...her name is Debbie....thank you Debbie. I was told that this was package #2...so I'm very sad about what ever could have happened to package #1...especially if it contained the same contents as this one...that would mean Debbie spent A LOT on this holiday exchange....was it all the same????

Here is a photo.

There were actually TWO of the cars sets for the 2 older boys, but Boy #2 took off with his, so I didn't go find it for the picture...hahaha...that is a good thing...he likes it...:)
There is a $25 gift card to BBW and it had a note on it to go pick out some wall flowers for myself. WOW....HOW FUN IS THAT?!?!?! :)

Cute little snoman on a reindeer.... and these two cute coaster-type things for a hot mug that give off a scent when you put your mug on them...one is cinnamon and one is vanilla.

A Cinnamon Roll Candle....I'm going to set it out for a long time on a cute plate as a decoration and maybe when it starts getting dusty (lol) I'll go ahead and burn it.

Thank you very much gr8girls. I really like it...it was worth the wait... Thank you. :)



Oh I am SOO GLAD you got something! At the same time I am insanely jealous!! It is Jan 11th and I still have not received a thing:( I figure nobody really cares anymore...ha! Anyways, I am glad you were taken care of and a bit spoiled I must say;) Have fun with your goodies and going shopping. Better get those wall flowers while they are on sale...lol!

I still check here too. I was hoping everyone received their pkgs by now. I makes me sad some haven't. Still don't know who gave to me but she/he was very generous. It was cold here last week, I put in my dvd, drank some hot cocoa and ate my candy bar. Oh, and those cozy socks have kept my feet very warm.

I care too! Any chance there could be a delay because of your location?? Since DC was required can we track that if the person sent it? I think everyone should get a pressie!! :yup:

I think like 3 or 4 of us should all send small packages to 4gr8girls.... Eve, is that a good idea? I know for the summer one, when they sent out life guards, they sent 2 for each person, so it wasn't so much for one person to buy again? Not that 4gr8girls isn't worth it...lol...that is NOT what I mean...I think it would be special at this point for her to receive some gifts from a few of us so she can still feel loved... ;) I will be the first to volunteer to send to her...we've gotten to know each other a little here from our "matching unfortunate mailing events"...rofl..... I'll just need her address. :) Who else would like to send? Maybe if Eve sees all of us...she'll pm us Grizellie's address? (if that is ok with Grizellie of course---maybe she doesn't want 3 or 4 people getting her address...hahaha....)

All our bonding and you don't remember my name....I'm hurt....lol!

You all don't have to do that. It's a very sweet gesture;) Like bugsette said patience is a virtue. I don't mind if Eve gives out my address I just know that all of you have taken care of your SS and I don't want anybody to be out anymore.

You all are the bestest ever...ha!

I have been watching this thread..... :) Glad to see everyone had a good time with the exchange.... and not too many elves were needed.... This summer we had a bunch of lifeguards pitch in and yes everyone was given 2 but not so they had to spend less.... but because they were left out and they had to wait and we all wanted to make it extra special for them..... :yup: I was a lifeguard and thought what I sent was very generous.....

:gdiagree: I was a lifeguard and felt I was very generous also.

Volunteered to be an elf but wasn't called on. I am sad to see one is waiting and it is mid January. I'm sure Eve is on top of the why and wheres.

I actually haven't heard from Eve since Jan 5th when I pm'd her to ask if she had heard anything. I pm'd my SS myself. I knew who it was since the list went out.

Once again, I am just being patient... Now, I know how my kids feel when I tell them to be patient...lol! Must...set...a...good...example...

Hey all! Just a quick update. It is Jan 28th and to date I have not received anything BUT my new best friend "Grassy" has sent a package that I can't wait to get. She sent me the dc# so I feel like it's for real this time...lol! I have had almost 2 months of anticipating a package. I hope I get a little credit for my patience;):D However it will be like a second Christmas! You can never have too many Christmases! I also wanted to thank Sunny for taking the time to make sure I get something. It means more to me than I could ever put into words! It's so awesome that somebody I have never met in person has done something so nice for me. I LOVE Gottadealers:yup:

You have 2 pkgs on the way I sent you something too. Was glad Sunny got the zip code confusion straighten out before I shipped mine. It was shipped on the 26th. The USPS couldn't give me an estimate on when it would arrive. If anything happens I paid for the confirmation to track it as well. Enjoy!
