You're not even going to tell us what they are?????????????????????????? Kass - you're like - the LEADER of the dark side or something!
Add my name to that list!! I had a notice from the post office yesterday so I went down today and picked up my package from Tracy aka MissMew! I was Tracy's secret Santa a few years back and she and I do chat fairly regularly so it was a really fun surprise to get that package from her today!!
I took pics but my computer is doing updates since I hardly turn it on these days so it'll be just a bit before I get them on here. Beside that, it's buried behind the baby's things since DH is still working on the nursery.
I'll list everything with the pictures; but I want to say a very big THANK YOU to Tracy!! Mooch and Noodles thank you too; as you will see in the pics and video I have to come!
Gail, I love those cat tissues- too cute!! Where on earth did you find those?
My pets are horrible!!!! Both mine and my mom's have tried to get into my package! Isabella especially is convienced it's for her....she lays on the tree skirt next to it and tries to kill any other pet that walks past the box
I have 5 darkside cats (my 3 and my mom's 2) and 3 darkside dogs (my german shepherd & daschound and my mom's beagle!) vs. 1 lightside me!! This makes things tempting I shall resist though!! They keep trying to conviencing me that I need to open it At one point they were ALL by the tree checking it out (it's the only present under the tree right now...I'm considering moving it into my closet for safety's sake if they don't loose their fascination!)
No No No!!!
Light side cookies taste better!
I hope you didn't mind that I didn't wrap the gifts. I orginally had them wrapped and then the box wouldn't close

I had that problem with my package too. The way I see it, they were all wrapped, just in one big package!
Mooch is still loving the mice and both have spent time pushing the box around the living room trying to get inside it.
A picture of everything: info about the area Tracy is from (something I requested specifically! Can't wait to read it all!), a yummy recipe, Pooh outfit with blanket, Canada Onesie, tin with Hersey Kisses, Snowmen figurine, 2 books: Living on Baby Time and The Power of a Positive Mom, a stocking of cat toys and treats, and an extra special flannel blanket!
The Canada Onesie. Can't wait to put this one on her!
The Pooh outfit!
Hope you can read this clearly. The blanket has beautiful embroidery work around the edges.
The kittie's "loot"
Mooch was around but Noodles was very into the presents!
And the box!
Enjoying the toys! I tried to get a picture of Mooch with the mice but she really did take off with one as soon as I opend the package! We've since played fetch seveal times.
Sorry I've been so neglectful in reporting back on my SS gifts. I'm afraid I still don't have pictures. I took a ton of them, but I can't get my camera to connect to my computer. I'm getting ready to leave for Arizona today, but when I get to my SIL's I'll try again with her computer.
I'll give you an update on what I got, though. The box was so PACKED that I can't possibly list out everything...it would be a very long post. I'll summarize, though.
Tailer and Forest got some adorable kitty stockings packed full of treats and catnip and toys. They had a ball getting into them on their own (until I took them away and hung them up before they could do any damage). Tailer is completely obsessed with the treats that were in there, and Forest has a new collection of small, sparkly pouffy balls that he's having fun with. He's been walking around with one in his mouth for four days now. They also got a box of organic cat treats and a cookbook and treat cutter for me to make them homemade cat treats. They also got lots of wrapping paper and a nice big box to play in.
I got an adorable elf stocking and a ton of other stuff. There was an assortment of yummy teas, plus lots of chocolate and cookie treats. There was a calendar and cards from Canada and some "polar bear poop" candy. There's also some cute cat-related napkins. There was a bunch of natural skin care products...cream, oils, bath salts, lip balm. I also got a "cat lover" mug and some adorable kitty ornaments. And some Yankee candle votives and tarts, too. There was also a lovely cat notebook, some magnets for my fridge, and a really cool paper snow globe with a Christmas cat scene. I'm probably forgetting something...it was a huge, packed box!
I also got a note wishing us a merry Christmas and warning me not to get too "pushy" about trying to figure out who my Santa is. I didn't listen, though. I figured it out and got a confirmation.
Thank you so much, Wendy (pushylady) for everything!!
I promise to post pics as soon as I get the technology working.

The kids just love that thing! Poor Winchester wants to get into soooo badly, but he's too fat and can't fit in it.
