Easiest way is to copy the photo on to your desk top and then in the "Submit Reply" button there's a "mountain" picture (it is next to the smiley face) click that and drag and drop image to there. It will be hosted on IBB's servers. You can also do this with Imgur instead (this is my preference). Just make sure you have the iPhoto turned on your phone and Mac there won't be a need to transfer anything then.

I have no knowledge of who has shipped what to whom and who has received gifts.
it was not meant as negative towards you.

I have a suggestion for next year.

Start having the participants give their phone numbers. I'm doing a lot of my ordering for my Santees online and all these places want a phone number for the receiver which I don't have. Some items such as alcohol require an adult signature and if the giftee isn't home the delivery person has no way of getting ahold of them

Giving out my phone number is one step beyond where I'm willing to go.

First two packages have arrived at their destination in Akron, I hope they enjoy.

Second package will be dropped off in Toronto this weekend. Then I am done for this year! Super fun shopping and both of my assignments made it easy.

Google Voice numbers are free and easy enough to sign up for. You can just have the calls set to dump into voicemail and not forward to another line. They do expire after a while as well.

Tracking shows that the package arrived in the destination country late last week. Hopefully customs won't sit on it too long and it will reach my Santee soon.

Came home today to two more fantastic packages! malexander13 sent me two giant tea sampler sets and a mysterious santa sent me Pandemic Legacy Season 1! The tea was also wrapped in in Amazon's gift wrap! I'm pretty stoked to try all of them out!

Received my gift today after coming home from a long day at work. So excited to have some new decor for my new home and some Canadian goodies to try out. Of all the times I've been to Montreal and Quebec, I've never tried or seen Farnham beer, so looking forward to trying it after my last CPA is taken this week!
