    Cool YooHoo -- Noctis!

    Be on the lookout ...... your box of elf goodies is on its way to you!!!

    This elf puts her Christmas tree up very early -- right after Thanksgiving. So, I wanted to make sure if you do the same, you would have presents to put under the tree ASAP! Or, you may decide not to wait for Christmas, and open them early to get you in the holiday spirit -- completely your choice of course!!!

    If anything amongst your gifts doesn't fit, or is just way off the mark, please let me know, and we can arrange an exchange. I want to make sure you are happy with all of your holiday surprises!

Considering the timing of when this started, I smile and forget it. Everyone has a right to express their opinion, after all, and that's a quiet and much more appropriate way than some other methods.
    The same thing happened to me dressagetraks! So bizarre!

    T'was the night before Christmas,
    And all through the barn,
    All the horses were sleeping,
    With an occasional yawn,

    All the stockings were hung,
    On the stall doors with care,
    Stockings belonging to geldings and the stud and the mare,

    And all of the Warmbloods were tucked in for a winter's nap,
    (We warmblood take a lot of naps!)
    Their day was all finished and their gifts they did wrap,

    When out in the barnyard there arose such a clatter,
    The horses arose to see what was the matter,

    Santa and Rudolph had come with 8 tiny reindeer,
    Which looked just like warmbloods until they came near,
    Santa handed out carrots, and apples and hay,
    And then all the warmbloods, they started to neigh,
    A Chirstmas carol of joy for everyone to hear,
    And then Santa sat down and had cookies and bier,
    He stuffed all the stockings with gifts for secret santa elves,
    Who'd sent presents to Eleanor, and wrapped gifts themselves,
    We'd done all our shopping, we'd sent all our gifts,
    To Eleanor for Christmas, we'd finished out lists,

    And we heard Santa say as he tightened his sleigh with a wrench,
    Merry Christmas to Cothers and make sure you don't grinch!

    Okay, this is a perfectly legit nice post, so why are there 3 thumbs down for it.
    Me thinks this thumbs up and thumbs down is getting a bit weird!.
    I am going on strike and not using it anymore. Is there a way to stop notifications. Sorry to side track but to thumbs down a post on here is well, dumb!
    And you were right Politics Was totally out of place on here!

    I went a bit over too. My giftee really needs something, and I found one! I hope she's happy with it. I love being able to find something someone really needs and doesn't have!

    Oh TRUST ME!

    I am a stealth Elf since I am virtually impaired. There is shipping and wrapping and really poor poetry headed for this thread and my gif tee!

    Oh I am so excited! FUN!

    Only on COTH is it said
    Rhymes can be typed on a thread
    We shop till we drop
    Exhausted we flop
    And just how can you type on something so narrow as a thread? A tiny piece of string, of course silk is even thinner, just never know.

    HOLY COW ELF! TarheelJD, you are AMAZING! I haven't OPENED anything yet (um...that may be happening tonight...not going to lie), but after a truly terrible week, I came home to a HUGE box waiting for me! I dug in and pulled everything out, wrapped so beautifully! I had to sit on the stoop and cry for a second that someone could take so much time and do things so beautifully! After a year of being forgotten and shuffled behind getting everything done for everyone else, that, even BEFORE opening anything, was one of the best gifts one could get the eve of thanksgiving. THANK YOU! (expect a private message once I get things actually opened) Thank you for making my day, week and month, and for your gorgeous wrapping skills! (Which I truly wish I had!)

    I'm having a bit of "elf's block" right now and am trying to figure out what to get to finish up shopping for my giftee. Hopefully I'll figure it out this weekend!

    Are people revealing themselves when they send their packages?

    I found the perfect last addition, Blackstallion2!! Everything should be here by next week, and I'll have it wrapped and on its way to you!

    Now I just need to get into baking mode, for the edible parts of your gift...for both horses and human!

    I have not made an alter, just not time with work and everything that has been going on. I have gotten a few things for my person and hope that I can get the time to get it wraped and sent before long.
