This secret santa has been window shopping
for fun and yummy things to put in your stocking.
Why only the window?
Santa has had a snafu with the bank about dough.
The elves have unionized and are funny about getting paid.
Seems they want compensated for what they have made.
Your package may ship after the deadline
but I promise your box will still arrive on time.
You will not be grinched this year
so please don't shed any tears.
I will post again to let you know
when your package has taken off in to the white pure snow.
Calhoun, your very stealthy elf is here, and packing up your gifts to send!
We'd like to add some tasty treats, but don't want to offend.
Any foods you hate or allergies?
Tell us Calhoun, please, oh please!
Though a stelf we may be,
We're just shy you see.
We promise not to grinch or flake,
and we really love to bake.
Now we're off to the wrapping table,
to make your gifts as pretty as we're able.
Aww - shucks... >>>hangs head<<< super super happy you liked your box!

One more tiny gift will come, & will reveal with that one (closer to Christmas) who Stealth Elf & Crew are.
Happiest of Holidays to You & Yours this year,
Your Stealth Elf
Oh how fun . . . Since you love to bake, I adore cookies, any kind I'm not picky. Cute poem! :-)
I was excited to get a box of hershey kisses from my elf!
My packages are wrapped and headed to the post office tomorrow...hope my giftee likes them!
Just wanted to let you know that your gifts are packed up and ready, and will be sent tomorrow!
FYI -- Do NOT read the enclosed note until you are opening the gifts; otherwise you'll spoil the surprise :). It is safe to go ahead and open the exterior box, because the contents are wrapped.
I hope you enjoy!
Do I have to wait or can I tear into it straight away? If you want me to wait I will.
Thank you so much Faltered!!

Oh, and don't mind the wrapping paper and feel free to open it upon arrival.
Yay! Our family goes like this. I'm the fair mare. My little one is a silly filly. Her dad is a dud stud. Lol.
Had a good shopping day today, both for my giftee, my SS giftee at work, oh yes, and my family.
Need to pick up just a few more things for the four-legged members of my giftee's family ;) Package should be out Tuesday morning.
A message for To The Max
Oh, To The Max!
The last part of your present arrived in the mail Saturday evening. Now it's time to wrap everything up and send it out! It should all be mailed by this Wednesday. I hope you enjoy your goodies and please do let me know what you think! Hopefully my shopping skills aren't too rusty. ;)
Open whenever you want! I know I will certainly dig right into mine once it arrives! :)

I'll get things finished up this weekend, if not before, and the Priority Mail Elves will still get your box to you well before Christmas.
Do not worry you have not been forgotten.
I would not want you to think that your elf has been rotten!
We are a bit past the deadline
Your elf never has been on time
(That rhyme stank...)
My wee elf helper and I are insanely busy
Often she sends me into a heck of a tizzy.
We've included a little something for everyone
Because that's all part of the fun!
I will be contracting out the shipping of your box
To Mr. Elf, who is seriously quite the fox! ;)
I hope that your gift finds its way to you
So that your Christmas will not be blue!
I tried to private message this rhyme
but your inbox is full at this time.
By now I hope you have found your first prezzie – check your PMs if not. The second will require some stouter help to haul it to you. I had hoped to send it by now. Unfortunately of the various teams heading to Combined Driving-Flying Events last weekend, several withdrew unexpectedly. A local flu outbreak led to the last being spun at the jog-up, leaving me without carriers. We are hoping that next weekend’s teams will pass inspection and wing your way with the box on Saturday.
First of all, I found my package sitting on my porch tonight when I got home!!
Sqeeeeaal! I was so excited I tore into it like a 7 year old :D
My elf got me exactly what I wanted - one I told her about (seat covers for my car! Yay!), one thing she must have intrinsically known (winter riding gloves! More yay!!) and one thing I didn't even know I wanted ;) (a beautiful silver necklace!). Plus some yummy chocolate goodies and dog cookies!!
I couldn't be more pleased. And it TOTALLY made my day!
Thank you elf! :yes:
Just a note to say you have not been forgotten! Waiting on something to be delivered; I should be able to mail it out this week.
Gabby.Gator - your elf has been very stelf, I'm sorry! I've been traveling a lot for work. Rest assured, we now have all your gifts and they'll be wrapped and sent this week. We will make sure they arrive before Christmas. Glad you are enjoying the holiday season. This Secret Santa stuff is fun!
