Thank you to the Santa for sending these welcome addition to my collection! The pillow will be most handy for those "shudder" long haul mileage runs! Wine glasses are always welcome. Now I have an "outdoor" one to boot!

Package #3

I received a set of packages from Amazon today (which my co-worker said should be one of my gifts to him!). Three books relating to Apple (the company, not the fruit or record label) and some German Lebkuchen (Gingerbread). I canít wait until Christmas Eve to break into the Lebkuchen!

thanks!
Jim

I received a box from Amazon which my kid previewed for me. He says it contains 4 nicely wrapped items. They will go under the tree and I will post again after Christmas Day.

You're welcome!! Normally I stay hidden, but I really loved finding those for you! I was like 'a tervis wine glass! Now there's a glass you can take outside and not worry about breaking!' And I would die without my neck pillow on flights. I had a regular one, but I updated to one from Athens this past May. I hope the gifts bring you many smiles

Thanks again FTSS!
OMG!! I LOVE your gift. Esp the idea of a scratch n sniff book. I wonder if they make one for wine....

Thanks for all of the goodies, Santa!

Hopefully you like it!!
I also had such fun picking out stuff for your box. The mug might be a little small for real coffee drinkers but just thought it was the closest I could get your love for photography. Hopefully the tie wasn't too bold for you.

I just sent out a PM to everyone who has not confirmed sending ALL their gifts.... that list is very long.

I ask that people work on their commitments quickly.... everyone agreed to have gifts arrive before December 25th.

After tomorrow, I will be out of pocket for several days.... so I will be unable to follow up on problems until December 26th.
The Elves serve at your beck and call.
Merry Christmas Santa, just in case we don't see you.

And don't forget, it's the 7th night Hanukkah tonight, with 1 more candle to go tomorrow. I better check my candle supply.

Kwanzaa starts December 26. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kwanzaa

P.S. I saw lots of new and exciting toys for next year at our Elves meetings in LAS last week.

Secret Santa 2017 from Beautifuleva

​​​


Juniper bonsai from joshua362

Apologies for any crazy typos - Iím writing this on my phone, and the mobile website doesnít behave some of the time.


My gifts from Beautifuleva, from left to right: Star Wars stormtrooper container filled with little candies, landmarks of the world coloring book (the title was cut off accidentally), Star Wars coloring book, a blank journal for my travels, a small plant kit (you put the ďtongueĒ in the dish of water to create capillary action from the water dish to planting material), a cute fridge magnet, and a tin of stickers printed with vintage maps.

joshua362 was very generous and sent a juniper bonsai. Iím excited to have it out on the porch once it gets warmer, but it will live in the storage closet out there until then (as per the accompanying instructions.) I think it will be a nice addition to my little gardenia bush.

Thanks so much to both of you! I really appreciate it.

I missed the delivery of the first gift on Friday, which was collected yesterday. A lovely handcrafted lamp suits my first home in the Cotswolds. I thank the Santa for the one-of-a-kind lamp!

Santa just wants to wish everyone a wonderful holiday season. I will be offline after I send this message until December 26th.

We are again spending Christmas in NYC.... hoping that the lottery gods come through on Hamilton tickets.

Please keep updating me with your sends and receipts of gifts.

Happy Christmas and good luck on the tickets! Have a wonderful holiday, and thanks again for all the work you put into this to organize it for us. This was so much fun! :-)
