You and I had the same Secret Santa, as that is what I received as well.

Thanks Santa!

(and saved me uploading pics haha)

I came home today so opened today.

The package contains a handwritten card, a sprint HTC evo 4 phone and industry magazine.

Thank you very much.

The box with PA snacks arrived today; I cannot guarantee pictures (no personal phones in our building) because I have salivating colleagues...the choices we have to make!

We might have to break open the Middleswarth chips...

Thanks again!

So I wanted to wait until all my gifts arrived before actually posting on here. I have to say, I was extremely impressed with the imagination and thought that went into this. Basically, I said I liked Wine, very little more (I was in a rush at the time). One person came back asking for more info and the other two ran with it.

Here is the issue with my request (which I did not realize) - its really hard to get someone to ship booze without knowing the persons age. So the first person went with a fine set of cheeses to go with my own wine. My wife is Swiss, so we love cheeses. Cant thank you enough for that.

The second person didnt actually leave a name. They asked for more help and gave me a wine book, Philadelphia Eagles luggage tags, a potable charger and wine carrying bags. Awesome gift - thank you.


The third person fudged my age and sent me wines from their home in WA. If you dont know, WA is a very cloudy climate which makes it very good for Pinot Noir grapes and white wines. Pinot's are my favorite, so this was a great gift. The only problem is that we drank the bottles so fast that they are now gone! Thanks for this gift


Finally, we got a "wait and see" gift from someone. Not sure who, but we are going to use this with our daughter on xmas eve. Thanks for sending through.



With that said, this was great to participate in. Thanks everyone for the fun!

Still waiting to hear here from both of my recipients. Packages were shipped the week before last, but no news thus far. USPS confirmed delivery.

Still waiting for my second.

It was nice to come home to something other than a naked stoop!

Kudos to Kirk for what seemed to be at least 15 pounds of goodies!

1) Papa Joes - salt, pepper, garlic seasoning blend will be perfect for grilling.
2) Olde Dutch Jams - raspberry, I love when it has the seeds in it.
3) Fruitwood Orchards - honey from blueberry flowers will be very interesting.
4) Kauffman's - apple butter spread, I hear the toast calling.
5) Duffy's Fine Chocolates - 15 different pieces means 15 different flavors.
6) Countryside Foods - Smoky rib sauce, nothing beats BBQ.
7) Countryside Foods - Balsamic walnut blue cheese dressing, yum.
8) Dutch Country - Soft Pretzel Mix will be better than at the mall.
9) McCutcheons - sweet and zesty dipping mustard for the pretzels I will make.


Thank you so very much.

Tone

Sorry for the multiple posts. FT and my iPad don't seem to communicate very well. While it didn't show it worked on the iPad, it had actually worked when I logged in through my MacBook.

Maybe someone with authority can delete #744, #746, #747?

I HUGE thank you to my SS who sent me a Kindle for Christmas!!! Yes, I know I am a dinosaur -- I still buy and read "paper" books. Once I figure out how to use it, I will be ALL set. Thanks, Santa!!!

Received a GREAT package from one of my secret santas -- storage container labels, l'occitane soap, a BUNCH of dermalogica travel products, Malaysia key chains, sardines, ginger candy, chai, pen & ink, and a PERFECT book (Organizing in the Age of Google.) Thank you, Santa, I will read the book on the plane tomorrow.
