All these gifts are really getting me in the spirit. They look great.

To my SS I will be sending out your gift in a couple of weeks. Don't worry you will get it in time. Just be patient.

I will most more at length later and tell folks things I recieved. Bradley is going to be waking up soon for his diaper change and a feeding and DH and I still haven't had dinner (8pm here).

But THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!
C'mon!!! Where are the details? We want details!

There is also the guilt factor. I haven't sent my gift out yet. I don't want it to arrive too early.

I agree with what the others said about Wal-Mart. Abby loves those things. The ones in Wal-Mart are made a bit better and the sparkly fibers don't fall out as much.

So Tari, tell us more about your workplace. It sounds a bit interesting.

I stepped out of my door heading to work this morning and I had a package on my doorstep!!

I got soooo excited, ran back in with it only to find out that it was something I had ordered and had forgotten about.

Dang!! Thought my SS gift had arrived.

But its okay--I'm not on the dark side, so it really wouldn't have mattered. I will wait to open it anyway.

Yeah...right!!! Spot and Poops won't let you wait, and they always get their way!!
post #157 of 978
Well I just got a clue via PM saying that my present was on it's way from "Santa's grotto"!!!

Oh and just so you know my Dear Secret Santa, I am firmly planted on the dark side and thoroughly excited!
post #158 of 978
I recived my package last night and I am being very good at not opening anything until I figure out the clues.

My SS lives in Texas, Near Fort Bragg and According to the BOLD letters in my clues I am being wished a "Merry Christmas From Lexi" Who is a beautiful calico.

I have sent a message to the person I suspect I'll let you know if it pans out!

I'm leaning toward the dark side...... but I can't open anything until I get home tonight I will take pictures!

If your SS told you she lives in Texas, near Fort Bragg than she is messing with your head. Fort Bragg is in North Carolina.

Her other clues are much easier to figure out though.

The light side shall prevail this year!!!!!!!!!!!! Of course, I can say that with confidence for now since I don't have a gift staring me in the face . So, to my SS, wait to mail mine as long as you want .

Not so firm today. I opened the box. Only the box though everything in the box is wrapped. Oh and they are still wrapped. There are so many presents too.

I feel very spoiled just looking at the packages.

Even though I haven't opened anything yet I want to say Thank you to my SS.
post #171 of 978

I checked...there's not! Here's the kicker, though...it's a box with a lid, and a ribbon around it. I'm pretty sure that whatever is inside is not wrapped...all it would take would be a pull of the ribbon, and a flip of the lid...

Ok, and now finally the pics I promised.. Been really busy but got a little time now!



Here is the gift being inspected by border partol.

My camera ate the two pics I had of everything wrapped all pretty and the one of the chocolate up close but, here's one with the last unopened gift that Kitters was trying to keep from me!

You can see all the goodies in this one except the Sudoku book still wrapped.
From left to right: On the purple box (which is my box of greeting cards) is the chocolate!! The brown smaller one is a Godiva dark chocolate with extra dark ganache, the green bag is Russel Stover german black forest truffle (I had some of those already!) Behind Kitters you can just see the top of the folding mirror with the Korean scene on it. It's really cute, wish it showed better. Then you see, partially, Kitters 5 pack of colored mice, then her four pack of colored pom pom balls. Then there is the green kitty ornament and the pack of cinnamon tea light candles from Yankee Candle. They smelll so good! And of course under Kitters is the Easy Sudoku book! That thing is fun! Behind Kitters bootie is her three plastic jingle bell balls, you'll see then in another pic.



Kitters still keeping my last present but knocking down the pom pom balls to try and get them out!


Here is me taking a picture of the super cute kitty ornament and Kitters taking the ornament!


Here's all of Kitters new toys! 4 pom pom balls, 5 colored mice and 3 plastic balls with jingles inside!


My mouse mom!!

So those are the pics I promised guys! I love it all and Kitters does too! I use that book almost every night and Kitters hasn't even lost one ball yet, she's had all four pom poms out since, I put her other toys except one mouse in her toy box so she has something later to play with too!

Thanks again Beth!
Wonderful gifts! I can't believe some of our members are actually holding out to open! Maybe I'll try to be strong this year too.

When receiving SS gifts and posting, can the user name be included? Not all of us can associate a name with the user name. Some of us are just getting old!

Okay, I got an PM that it was okay to open my package - which came from North Carolina, BTW...so on Saturday, I opened the big box with a little help from Cosmo and Mollieonce again, even tho' I am using the message board/forum button, and I re-sized these photos to the forum size, they are coming out huge - anyone have any suggestions?

Here are all of the "goodies" lined up,(notice the ornament to the right-thanks Cosmo!)

Mollie and Cosmo immediately checked things out - and Cosmo tried to open the chocolates!

I AM NOT GOING TO CROSS OVER TO THE DARK SIDE!!!
post #178 of 978
Oh, that looks like fun! I bet the kitties have them open in no time!

The picture size looks fine to me, by the way.

Cats are always so nosey

There are just too many participants not willing to go to the dark side this year

Don't worry Pam, most of them usually crack.
