I have had a couple other Secret Santa packages come in from Amazon. Thank you so much! My son is so excited about the Pokémon pack. Thank for thinking of him as well (even though we all love opening Pokémon) he was so happy. Hope you have a wonderful holiday!

Reinholt1, thank you for the card and the lotto ticket! I didn't win, but it was fun to dream while I scratched off the little snowflakes :).

I think I've gotten all the Christmas cards. We have gotten 10. They are all hanging up. Mom is very happy. The cards are especially important this year as we lost 4 members of our family 3 of them were my ants. Not so many cards on the wall this year. That makes them all extra special! Thanks again everyone!

Thanks Secret Santa. I ❤️ everything! The Maya Angelou canvas art is going on my hallway wall today. My teenagers have already asked for some of my candy (maybe I’ll share😏). Merry Christmas and thanks again.

So, as I said, I waited until my birthday (today) to open my Secret Santa gifts.  I’m so happy.  I got a new John Grisham book and a beautiful stainless tumbler for the winter season.  I love the tumbler and can’t wait to start the book.  Thank you so much Secret Santa!!

Every Secret Santa gift has been received! Thank you all SO much for the notifications. 

 

We had 2 ornament exchange packages walk away from their recipient after delivery, but those have been made right and replacements should be delivered today or tomorrow. All in all, it's been a successful Secret Santa year thanks to all of you.

Thanks for another year of being our Chief Elf! So very much appreciated!!!

Mom opened up her gifts today. She is very very happy! I don't know what she like best but it comes down to the cat pin or the coffee cakes! I think the coffee cakes are the hands down winner. She opened those first!

You really outdid yourself! Thank you for being so kind and generous! I think you bought her everything on that list!!

Not yet! I sent all of mine out today. Hope they get to everyone before Christmas. It has been a weird year and I am behind more than usual.
I did receive all of my cards. As I did last year taped to LR wall Festive, and I am grateful. The scratch off wasnt a winner either, but Nice Thought, Thanks.

Had to work yesterday. Was not fun being out in the brutal winds. Otherwise, not as horrid as it could’ve been. lol
