Aww I remember that scene. What a sweet gift!

Oh? I should? The gift message didn't say that! How do I go about selecting the delivery dates? The kibblers thank you greatly!

From a Secret Santa in New Jersey... or shipped from there.... an HTC EVO 3D phone so that I can take 3D photos and videos. Also sent an INDUSTRY magazine which is rather interesting.

Thanks SS>

So I opened the gift that I was saving for Christmas. It is an awesome Spanish book with pop up flameco dancers. My daughter clapped when I started to read it to her

Thanks Santa!

It was a 'big dog' subscription ordered through Barkbox, and my receipt seems correct. If I understood correctly, you'd receive a box of treats and a card giving you a message from me and instructions to log in and select your own dates.

I addressed the package to you, but the card is addressed to the dogs.

Two possibilities come to mind: Barkbox and I didn't understand each other correctly, of you've actually got FOUR doggie treat gifts

I've not received anything from them yet! I thought the giant box of Greenies was from you!

I haven't seen or heard anything from my Santa yet. I think he/she is keeping me waiting.

Can't wait!

I had another thought--did you use the alternate address I provided perhaps? If you did, that would be why I didn't receive it yet.

Glad the presents were a hit, hope your London trip is a blast!

And when I eagerly opened them I saw this:



The book on London is awesome and I'm starting to read it with my daughters as we plan a trip for this summer. I have twin girls who are 15 years old and they laid claim to the chocolate pretty quick!

In the card was a nice note and information that another package would be arriving in a few days - which it did. Sorry I don't have a photo of that but it's a soft case for holding electronics accessories (headphones, chargers, etc.) which is great because I usually just stuff things in my pockets or bag so it will be great to have it in a protective case.

Thanks SS Paul!

Glad you like the snacks, I wanted to give something from PA. Also hope the organizer isn't overkill with other ones you got.

... and my dog is a complete sucker too. He had a single chip. Thanks so much for all the local PA noms (they're 1/2 gone now) and for the skooba travel nerd pouch. The zipper is key for all the random crap that I tend to throw in there. It'll pair nicely with my grid-it ... I carry way too much with me!

Thanks @psupaul

You're welcome levenhopper, Merry Christmas! It was actually quite a bit of fun finding them!

Thank you to my secret santa (I believe Kipper) for the lovely gifts. I got a beautiful scarf, hand warmers, head band (hand knitted) and a bracelet. Thank you so much.
