Great gifts everyone! laureen, who was your ss?
don't know, yet. had a suspicion, sent a PM - wasn't her, tho...

the tree was in the box... now, the box [plus packing materials & wrapping paper] has become the favorite kitty bed in my house.

my mom was impressed w/the number of gifts - wanted to know if there was a $$$ limit. i told her there was a minimum, no maximum.

I know my wonderful Secret Santa put so much love and kindness into my gift- it gives me something to look foward to be excited about right now! I'm already looking foward to opening it up at Christmas!!! So I'm going to try and wait till Christmas to open it up if my wonderful SS doesn't mind!!! (Which i'm still trying to figure out who my person is by the way lol!)




That's my plan at the moment! Hopefully I can resist the temptation to open it early!
Okay. Considering the circumstances I guess you're off the hook. But don't you want to know who your SS is? What if they are on the dark side and just itching for you to open it? How about just opening the shipping box? Maybe the presents inside are wrapped.

Don't you need to check for breakage or chocolate?

How about opening one or two and saving the rest for Christmas.

(I think I know who your SS is and they are definitely on the Dark Side. )

You're welcome! It was fun shopping & waiting for you to figure out it was from me! I am so glad you are enjoying your gifts (P.S. Watson is my german shepherd...who is Mitten's best friend)! Hope you have a wonderful Christmas

Hey, that works for me, Nikki. How about it?
post #610 of 1483
I've been a very bad meow mommy lately!!! I've fallen behind on EVERYTHING! My poor SS didn't even know if I had recieved my package because I hadn't got on TCS for probably about two weeks now! I got another gift from my SS!!! She sent me a tote with a cat on it that read "I love cats" and she sent me a fantastic stocking with a cat on it! It's so neat, I absolutely love it! She also sent me a BUNCH of cat toys! Sorry I don't have any pictures yet. I've been really stressed with school and finals comming up, I have my first one this Friday On top of that I some how lost my camera and my SO doesn't know where his is either!!!! Hopefully I will find one of them ASAP so I can get some pictures!

Thanks SS and sorry I haven't posted till now

Nope ladies, I'm going to be good lol. I've got the box under the Christmas tree and so far I've resisted the urges to open it just yet. I'm really going to try and wait it out till Christmas this year! At the moment Isabella and Velvet are laying on my tree skirt by the present....I think they're anxious to know what's in there too lol.

I'm still trying to figure out who my SS is! I've been reading though threads trying to investigate, but i'm still stumped!

And it was! Ill let the pics tell the story, but the short of it is, it took me about 3 hours to become fully darksided! mmmm yay! Here we go...

Please open Meowmy!


Something in here for me?


What about me?


Found it!


This is the one!


rowr!


fun for all!


The complete Haul


Best part-new cat bed deluxe version


Everything was really enjoyed. There was 2 boxes of Jujubes (my absolute fave!! but I was already eating one...the other might also be eaten by now ) My Secret Santa was Catfriend, who did an excellent job even throwing in a free pen! What a cheer up for the weekend
Fantastic gifts!

Early Christmas


Thank you so very much, SS!!! I've already busted into the chocolate, put on some wonderful vanilla sugar fragrance, and have my Santa Claws socks to wear tomorrow to work The kitties are playing with their toys (when they are not chasing each other!) and eating those treats like candy

Going to be trying to find out who my SS now She gave me a few hints, although I'm sure the location one wont do much good since everyone's changed theirs! I've got two kitty names to help me out though
Very nice! I don't blame you for breaking into the chocolate already.

Works for me. Although I am firmly on the Dark Side, I try not to harass the lightsiders too much especially if they only expect to have a few gifts on Christmas Day.

OK, where's my cookie?

Abby and I opened our package yesterday and were thoroughly spoiled by our wonderful SS - Miss Mew. Thank You, Tracy. Pics will be coming later. Abby was crashing around in the tissue paper all night while we were trying to sleep.

Oops, sorry. My wonderful SS was MonaxLisa!

Glad to hear!

I figured that Abby would enjoy the box and paper much more than the toys

My German Shepherd, Ulli, was also best friends with one of my cats, Spark-plug. Unfortunately both passed away nearly 10 years ago (1 month apart from each other ... I think Sparky died of a broken heart). I'd love to have another GS. I bet Nero would get along with it Hope you, Watson & Mittens have a lovely Christmas as well.

just a little?? I received a note that my package is on its way too....I was VERY excited by this

I owe my SS a big apology for being late in saying a big "thank you" for the package that arrived on Friday. It was from Auntie Em's Creations and contained some gifts for my crew - 3 cat nip sacks and a kitty cuddler. Suffice it to say, I had a bunch of happy kitties this weekend. No pics because I left my camera at work. I'm taking it home tonight, though, so will work on getting some. Many thanks to my SS for the wonderful surprise!

I am sooooo bad. I received my SS gift today and opened it. My friend was up from out of state and was too excited about the whole SS exchange so she convinced me to come to the darkside. Along with another "purrson" who shall remain nameless -->
My friend and I were walking out of the apt to leave and I almost tripped over a box. The funny thing is, I heard UPS pull up this morning and I ran to the window to see if the package was for me. It wasn't so when I saw a package on my doorstep, I was terribly shocked. Didn't even hear anyone drop it off.

I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVVVVVVVVVVVEEEEEEEEEEEEE everything so much and someone put a lot of thought into my gifts. I will post pics later b/c my camera's battery died after the last pic I took. I am pretty certain I know who the great SS was, but will investigate a little more. And I think they pulled the "Ol' address switcharoo" on me.

More pressies! More pressies!!! And more folks on the Dark Side!
post #627 of 1483
Okay, I need to amend my previous post. I have it on good authority that the presents from my SS weren't for my kitties, but get well gifts for Isaac. How sweet is that? No worries, though, Isaac got the kitty cuddler, which he LOVES, and one of the sacks. I'll save the others for him. Thanks again to my SS. What a sweet, thoughtful thing do for little Isaac.
post #628 of 1483
your SS asked that i post this...
Quote:
I am Nikki's SS. And could you please post in the thread something for me?

Could you tell her I am very happy she got the package and that so far she likes it. Tell her I don't mind if she opens it now or later. If she'd like she can open the outer box and there are some "goodies" floating for her and kits but almost everything is wrapped. It could give her a little pre-christmas fun! Also, inside the box is a Christmas Cryptogram puzzle to help her figure out who I am if she so wishes, and another sealed envelope with the answers to it, if she gives up! She could make it like the 12 days of Christmas or wait entirely. It's up to her and I hope that she really likes everything I got and made for her and the furrmily!

A big box arrived from my SS when I was out today. It is now sitting in the corner by the tree with a couple of kitties perched on it wondering what's inside......they are begging me to open it......honestly it's all their idea.

Anyhow let's see if it makes it throw the evening...

Thanks very much Nancy
