Good to see packages are getting to their destinations!

And yes, it is with great regret that the Firm had to send summons for elf duty. It's minimal but still very disappointing... I had to lock up the bamboo nog. And take away pencils. And scissors. Not a happy bunch of accountants right now.

 

Unfortunate in one way, but fortunate that you have willing elves you could call in. :) The accountants will be able to have their bamboo nog back soon!


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:

::looking at my empty envelope at the top of my screen::

 

Awww nuts!  You didn't pick me chief elf!   How come I am always the last one to get picked for the team??

 

I'm never gonna get picked for sleigh duty at this rate........ :;putting elf ears back on the shelf::

Awww, sorry.... the Firm did a random draw. Really I am.

It is heartwarming to see so many willing to go above and beyond. That makes the ShiShis happy and they are once again in a festive mood.

On a bright note, looks like all but 2 OE and 3 SS are shipped but all should be out by the end of the week.

I hope you got my PM I just sent you a few minutes ago.  I haven't been in here for over a week, and I didn't know I needed to send you my tracking label.  I have been getting ready for a surgery on Monday and my daughter has to have a 3rd surgery on Tuesday.  So things have been hectic here.  I did send out my SS on the 4th and pm'd you the tracking number.  She should have gotten her gift yesterday.  I sincerely hope an elf wasn't summoned to send a gift, and I with tears hope I am not kicked out of this for the coming years. Being my first year in it I didn't know I need to send tracking, and with things so crazy with 2 of us having surgery in a few days.  I won't be able to drive or shop or anything after mine.  Anyways, just wanted to post that I'm not a looser I did do my SS.  Have a blessed day all!

Wow Kash... You've been through it this season, it sounds like. Hope both you and your daughter come through your surgeries well and heal up quickly! I will be praying all goes smoothly and that you are able to have a wonderful Christmas.

I received my OE gift yesterday. I got a beautiful snowman ornament and an adorable monkey ornament that I love!! Aldo included was a book that I can record the story for my girls. An added bonus was a gift for each of my daughter that was so wonderful and made my girls night. The twins each got frozen purses with headbands that they insisted wearing to the dinner table and my baby got a zebra rattle blanket and a teething toy. I loved everything and couldn't have done better myself. Thanks a million. I hope everyone else receives as wonderful gifts as I did

My SS gift was waiting for me today when I got home & it was a candle-palooza 😊😊

I received three candles, a wax warmer along with some wax melts to start me off.

Ok, looks like the last couple of packages will be going out tomorrow so everyone should have their packages next week.

How about those cards? Has everyone mailed?

Santa Came (Actually, he came yesterday, but I was off becoming a great aunt so I wasn't here to receive).  Thank you so much Santa!  I can't tell you how much I needed the kitchen towel set - my potholders are down to having to be doubled :). Also got some bath soak beads (you can bet I'll be putting those to use this weekend), A Sweat Pea candle and Sweat Pea Room spray (My favorite scent), some aloe socks, and 2 (YES, TWO!!) bags of chocolate covered peanuts!  I am so blessed.

I received a box a couple days ago - finally got to pick it up from my apartment office today. I'm assuming this is my SS box. Saving for Christmas! :)

I came home to a box on my doorstep and I'm pretty sure it is my SS gift so it will be waiting for me under the tree. Thank you so much SS and I will post a picture once I open it!
