Secret Santa 2011 Official Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

A big thank you to my SS. As expected this was the only gift I did not buy myself and it was all spot on. My favorite candies are Peanut M&M's followed by Caramello's, not sure if that was included in my list. The mug is gorgeous and everyone had nothing but praise for it. The grinch stocking is beautiful and one I'd never seen before, I may have a large one in red/white somewhere. Ferrero Rocher's never go amiss and Bella loves her toy, she was even a little miffed when I took it away from her to take the pic. The vanilla stuff smells delightful, the nail file is much needed and the can cover is genius. We have some of the just cover ones but this one will be useful for drives up to disney when the driver needs a bit but not a canful to avoid stops :) Sorry the pics are blurry but my camera is impossible to get to and I didn't want to 1st use the new one I got my presents.

The reading on the mug says:

"Three Wise Women..now that makes sense!"


They who are wise women

If there had been three wise women

they would have arrived three days early,

swept the stable, gathered fresh linens

and had a hot meal ready and waiting

when the Christ child arrived.


Yet they come today

bearing three priceless gifts...

Love, laughter & friendship!

Thank you for making this a merry christmas, I was ready to kill my father yesterday. He rushes to the grocery store to buy not 1 but 2 bottles of wine for the mailman when we had already given him baked goods the day before AND YET he has not a single thing for my mother (or myself). When I asked if both bottles were for the mail carrier he blows a gasket and screams at me that I'm a grinch. So my mother yells at him that it's ok to yell at her BUT not me. I later explained to him that if we're giving neighbors and other acquaintances a bottle of wine with baked goods it makes no sense to give a total stranger 2 bottles then I wrapped both bottles and gave them to him. He set them by the inside of the door and never bothered to wait for mailman.


Later in the day he came to me asking if I had anything he could give my mom so I saddled him with the more expensive gift of the camera and wrapped it for him....we'll see if he pays me for it but she was going to have it anyhow so it's not like it matters.

No pictures but wanted to thank my SS for everything. It was amazing. Could not wait to cuddle under the blanket with the candy (yum). You really went above and beyond and there are no words to say how much your package meant to me. Thank you again.

Big thanks going out to merrywether and mgmckny for all my ss and oe gifts. Merrywether, did you make that "Be the person your dog thinks you are" picture? We love that!!

Yep I did. :) When you put that you loved your dog...I immediately thought of stitching that up for you. Glad you like it.
