    Dear KPF,

    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.

    My husband was watching me go through my package, and he was like, "Secret Santa is really making it hard for me this year! She's going to be hard to beat!" I said, "It's because she's a HORSE person...she 'gets' it!" LOL!

    Truly, Stealth Elf, you did an amazing job of picking out my loot. Either you are a very, very, very stealthy detective, or you have incredibly perceptive intuition!!! I truly love every. single. thing. in my package, and it is ALL so useful and lovely!
    Aww - shucks... >>>hangs head<<< super super happy you liked your box!

    Stealth Elf LOL'd at some of your comments... but Stealth Elf's Crew (spouse) said horse-women are incredibly perceptive & we enjoy shopping for others like ourselves better than other non-horsey Christmas chores!

    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! :-)

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Never fear, ShoppingSanta-- I will be waiting until the big day to open your gifts anyway. So take your sweet Santa time!

    Sweetmutt,

    I'm working on finishing touches on the handmade portion of your gift, not fancy painted ponies like you do, but a little personal touch on something I hope you like. But your elf is also in the Elfin Choir, and this week is rush hour for Christmas concert season. 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.

    Your Elf

    Default Oooooh HorseFaerie!!

    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.

    Dear Shayaalliard!

    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

    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!

    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!
