Well, my attempt to stay on the light side lasted a whopping 5 1/2 hours...which is pretty good for me, to be fair.
My SS is sillyitiliangrl and she did an amazing job!
Here's my box in its short-lived residence under my treeOriginal
Once I made it through the packing tape, here are the presents...still all nicely wrappedOriginal
And all the presents on display (The stocking full of cat toys was in to pic but Freya hooked it and pulled it out of the frame just as I took the pic
The egg nog card was freaking hilarious! DH kept playing it and we couldn't stop laughing at it.
I'll try to record it on my camera and post it...Freya kept trying to find the sound.Original
Meanwhile Cotton kept sliding closer to the Temptations when he thought we weren't looking.Original
But then he decided to inspect the stocking full of stuff instead, as did Freya.Originaloriginal
..and then she really got into the inspecting (don't know if you can see it in the photo, but her head is in the stocking.
Then she found her new favorite catnip mouse and pulled it under the table to umm...playOriginalOriginal
Meanwhile Cotton checked out several of the softer toys and played with their new Cat DanceroriginaloriginalOriginal
And Freya definitely approved of the boxOriginal
And the paperoriginal
In addition to the kitties' presents I got some soft, fluffy Christmas socks, two really cool teas (white mango and passion flower), some sudoku and word search puzzle books to keep me busy, two adorable homemade bookmarks, a photo frame calendar and a set of magnetic photo frames for my kitties' pictures, Ferrero Rocher chocolates
, and the sweetest Secret Santa book of Christmas sayings...and of course my awesome signature with my quilting cats. Original
Thank you, Danielle! Everything is wonderful.
You've been an amazing Secret Santa and I can't thank you enough!
