Sure hope so. I've enjoyed it the past couple of years and have already started on the cards, and have one little ornament.

Me too, just seems like the days are going soooooo slow till it pops up. LOL Actually, I think it was later in SEPT when she started it. Can you tell I'm getting anxious?

sorry yall. did not mean to leave you hanging. been going back and forth the last few weeks on if I can handle it. Fact is I should not try to take it on, it will be too much to handle... I dont think i can participate this year either, so i probably wont check the thread...I am not even sure if I will be able to get in the holiday mood at all even this year... if you need any help or have any questions, pm me and i will try to help.

Eve .. so sorry to hear you sound so sad! I hope things get better for you! I'd volunteer to help - but I"d probably screw it up.

Anyone who would like to volunteer, please PM me. While this has always been a "non-official" event, we want to make sure there is a smooth transition and that everything is handled well this year. Keep in mind that this role requires you to be VERY organized and spend a significant amount of time working on it, so PLEASE only volunteer if you know 100% you'll be able to handle it as you'll have A LOT of people counting on you.

Thanks to eve for taking care of this these past years. She's done a great job and hopefully that can continue with the next volunteer.

I'm not sure I could handle the secret santa but I could do the christmas card exchange if the person taking over doesn't want to do that one.

Eve - I have no idea what is going on in your life - but my thoughts and prayers are with you. If you need one - I have a shoulder to cry on... You have been fantastic with handling this in past years - and I tip my hat to you! You are a GREAT person and I for one will miss all that you have done for us. ♥ I hope things get better for you soon.

Do we know if anyone has volunteered to take over this year? I have a lot going but if no one has so far, I might PM Brad and take it on. Seems sad not to continue...
