I am SO EXCITED!

I have been out of town but arrived home today with packages from SANTA #2 and SANTA #3.

SANTA #2 sent me a BEAUTIFUL bonsai garden. I love it. A great gift.

SANTA #3 looked at where I had been to school and sent shirts from UNC-Chapel Hill, Campbell University and the University of Washington! There was also a jar of Jelly Belly Beans!

I hope to make photos of all the gifts and post them in the near future.

Thank you to ALL three of my Secret Santas!

Merry Christmas!

Gift received

Secret Santa Gift #2 arrived today. A Holiday Crate from VSauce. I have to admit it was the first I'd heard of these but a pretty cool thing!

Thanks Santa!

Maybe someone with authority can delete #744, #746, #747?
Did you try to use the picture uploading tips in the Wiki? It's relatively simple.

I love getting a personal note or greeting card from my Secret Santa and this one didn't disappoint. Very nice stationary from 'Alan' in New York, beyond that, no clue. He sent a large heavy book (with receipt, how I know he lives, or at least bought it in NY), and a large toy for my large dog, which he has already enjoyed. A big tough but lightweight ring that my dog carries in his mouth at the bottom so it fits around his nose! So fun and cute. And the grip on it precludes Sammy from hanging on with all his might so I find its really easy to dislodge from his mouth so I can roll or throw it again. It is an awesome design to do either plus give a fun bounce for him. LOVE, love, love. I also got some lotion which may be a little strong for me, but my daughter or MIL will be rejoicing soon when I pass it on, which will make me very happy. Thank you super santa for all the goodies! And for spending so much on shipping. I can only imagine how much a large Fed Ex box here in time for Xmas cost. Thank you, thank you, thank you

Office confirmed two packages that I'll open when I return in January!

Also, the wiki is now updated with every post up to here-I obviously chose 5 of the busiest Secret Santa present opening dates to go on a nice (internetless) trip to Melbourne for 5 days

So, to those of you who have not yet received all your gifts... I do apologize... but do know I am doing all I can to get them to you.
Just an update that I've yet to receive anything my SS. I'm hopeful it will arrive soon and has not lost its way here. This is such a fun activity, and I'm stoked reading all of the enthusiastic posts each morning (I get the daily digest email)!

Cheers All!

Just a friendly note... I have several of you who have chosen to not tell me what you sent to your Santa... as such, you may not get "credit" on my list.. as those people were receiving from multiple people... so I may not be able to match you up.

Please help me... not sure how else to ask.

Sitting at 1 of 2 for gifts received from SS, and 1 of 2 follow up posts for gifts sent to SS, hopefully a last minute delivery from the elves in the brown truck will be on its way and some catch up posts from the receiving SS.

To my secret santa--sorry for the delay in acknowledging your wonderful gifts! I am the recipient of:

a USB-powered fridge, perfectly sized to hold my main source of caffeine--with both heating and cooling capabilities


a USB-controlled dart gun turret, which is surprisingly powerful--after the holidays, will build a platform for it so I can assert my authority over the entire office


a pen with a secret camera in it--still need to figure out how to best make use of it, but will first brush up on my local laws regarding blackmailing
