    The bills are paid,
    The stockings are laid

    I'll send you a message,
    From the elves in the village,
    They'll try not to pillage.
    Yay I have an elf! And a rhyming one! (And how'd you know I hate beer?! LOL)

    TarheelJD,

    Your elf is here
    Never fear

    Just wanted to see
    If there was anything you need
    Or maybe something you desire
    But haven't been able to acquire.

    Your elf would also like to find
    What occupies any spare time
    And what books, music, and movies we will see
    On your must read/watch/listen list devotee

    My rhyming skills may leave something to be desired (which is ironic and you'll soon see why), but I promise to search hi and low to find the best gifts for you this holiday season!

    Yay! My elf is here! For just peeking, I had a thread a couple months back with a series of photos of Hoover from when I bought him through september. All are less than 195 kb though. If you want to peek at something higher resolution, PM me your elvin email addy.

    Fave color is green, range from kelly to forest green.

    I in turn am beginning to shop for my giftee...

    This year your elf is a quick one!
    Found a few things and already almost done!
    Just one or two more questions for you,
    In your spare time, what do you like to do?
    Do you have any other animals in your life this season?
    The contents of your gift may or may not be the reason!

    While we're waiting for Eleanor's 2nd package to be delivered:

    Eleanor got degrinched by 2 warmbloods,
    On Vancouver Island Christmas Eve,
    You can say there's no such thing as warmblood elves,
    But when the package gets there Eleanor will believe.

    Now the items we sent are cool,
    We broke every secret santa rule,
    Now the bennies are on the table,
    And the cups full of tea,
    We sent lots of stuff to Eleanor,
    Everything but a Christmas tree.

    Now tell all your friends and neighbors,
    Better look out for themselves,
    They should never give credit cards to horses,
    Who have internet and want to be warmblood elves.

    YAY!! My Elifie's here!

    My sweet Oliver does not have a likit. And he is not picky in the least.

    Have fun at Equine Affaire! I, too, will be roadtripping to shop for my giftee, but alas, it will not be anything as nice as EA.

    Default frustrated with signing in and not getting in.....repeatedly

    I would like to sign in under my elf name, but for some reason I can only get in once in every ten or so attempts. If it doesn't happen by then, I leave the room before I toss the computer or phone out the window or even worse, give up COTH.

    I have requested new passwords multiple times and followed the instructions carefully.....sometimes they work, sometimes not. I have tried to contact a moderator, but haven't heard back. Maybe this has to do with the revisions, maybe not. I should be able to enjoy Secret Santa time on COTH, but admittedly am just frustrated at this point. I can't even rhyme.

    So to my giftee, I wanted to let you know that just a little bit ago I officially purchased the first two items for your Christmas surprise package. I wish I could say who my giftee is, but I can't.

    I'm getting a little paranoid that I forgot to mention my cat in my description... So if my elf is out there reading this, I have a wonderful cat named Esme who acts more like a dog than a cat

    I sent a pm to you chocomare. I haven't gotten my giftee yet. I wish I could have offered more though, just out of college and STILL no job. I hope I can at least cheer up someone's christmas this year

    Gabby.Gator you have an elf! Your elf is not much of a rhymer, but is definitely a shopper. In fact, some small gifts came home with her from Spain just this weekend.

    Your elf would love to hear more about your favorite colors and what kind of saddle pads you like to hoard...your elf always liked colorful quilted square pads, but not everyone likes that, she knows.

    If there's anything else your heart has been pining for, your elf would be happy to add to the list. She knows you've had a tough year and hopes to help make the holidays a good time.

    Oh Snicklefritzg!! Just a few questions from your non-rhyming Elf...

    What's your favorite color?

    Do you like jewelry?

    What is your mare's name?

    DO you have any pictures of your horse?

    Coffee - yay or neigh?

    Any other pets...dogs, cats, ferrets, birds, etc that I should know about?

    Default I wear horse hair

    Finally !!! I hope that i finally got my alter registered,,,phewwww,,,. I promise that I am a better Elf than computer person ! I just wanted you to know that I am working on making your Christmas fun. If you could pick some things to put on the top of your Wish List what would they be ? Do you have a middle name ? What would you HATE to receive ? I know that I will have more questions as we get closer tro the Big Day ;-)

    Ooh, you are a swift elf! And you rhyme! Lucky me Hmmm...hobbies other than my pony include hiking with Mr JBCool and photography mostly, sometimes writing when we're on the river or in the mountains. Only pet is my noble steed. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

    YAY! My elf is here! So excited!

    As for anything we need, hmmmm. I just bought a dressage saddle from a friend (it did not fit her new horse, but fits mine perfectly). I am hoping we'll do a few baby level combined tests this coming year. Having never ridden dressage before (except one baby level combined test in 2011), I don't really have much. I probably need to get a dressage saddle pad, so I don't have to borrow my trainer's all the time!

    I am a big James Bond fan (on the brain lately with the release of the new movie). I read all of Ian Flemming's books when I was a kid, but I've lost track of my old copies over the years. I'd like to start getting copies of them so I can read them again now, as an adult. I've just been too swamped to order a copy of Casino Royale. And I like other spy type books, like Daniel Silva and Robert Ludlum. I also like legal type fiction like John Grisham and Scott Turrow.

    I have a 4 month old Weimaraner puppy (named Vesper), and she takes up most of my spare time these days!

    Love to travel, and food and wine, and antique shopping!

    Thanks for the meassage -- COTH SS is so much fun!

    Jingo bells, Jingo bells,
    Jingo all the way!
    Oh, what fun it was to shop
    For Jingo yesterday!

    Just wonderin', Jingo...
    If (and that's a big IF) I get the sleigh packed early, will you be able to restrain yourself from opening your package, or will you tear right into it??? I'm just curious; the decision is alllllll yours...
