    Uh, jingo-ace, we weren't kidding! We warmbloods do not think horses should work. We like to run around looking good. It's enough that we buy things. The UPS guys are great. Do you know that in their headquarters, they always smile and hold elevators for people? And say hello to strangers who are going to offices in the same building? They must take some happy pills or something. So they deliver and do all the work. We order stuff from cothers who make good items. That's hard work. So then we sleep on it. Let those reindeer do deliveries if the UPS guys cannot get there by Xmas.

    We're off to look at foalingaround/lovelybay's website for gift ideas. Order something from her.

    Hi Alicat518 Your elf is still shopping.. Waiting for something to arrive.
    I wonder if you got box number one.
    The elves in shipping are sometimes a bit careless.
    I am way over my limit but heck what does an elf need anyway~

    So I tried to post as an alter for my giftee, thought it worked and the post doesn't show up. ANYWAY. Payday Friday means gifts for my giftee should be going out early next week. I apologize for the delay but I am NOT grinching anyone. Rough, rough week at work, this one is.

    Squeal !!! I can't wait. You don't have to hurry 'cuz I don't want to open the gift until Christmas. I hope that you don't mind. It 's just nice to have something to open on Christmas Day.

    I am so frustrated though---I can;t post my alter. I have tried deleting everything but no luck. This is the first year that I haven't been able to post. So sorry to my giftee but I will try to make up for it with your gifts !!

    The shopping/planning for my giftee has been loads of fun and it's made me shop for fun little tidbits for close friends too, for me, a very nice side effect.
    You're not alone! My dad's drinking while I was growing up pretty much ruined the holidays for me. Even now, the only things I get excited about are COTH's Secret Santa and what to give my trainer for Xmas.

    It's really nice to be able to look at holiday items and not flinch.

    We've done all our shopping and our gifts have arrived and now.........we're bored. PM us if anyone gets grinched. We are going to sing some carols and drink some mulled wine. We really do drink!
    We and our owner always loved the holidays because we had happy lives. Remember Christmas is for family and friends and happy times. It's not for getting, it's for sharing and having fun.

    Everyone relax and enjoy the season. The lights, the decorations, the family, the friends. Besides, we warmbloods get stuff all year long. At Christmas, we just think of others instead of ourselves........for one day out of the year. Every other day is warmblood day!

    And remember, if your grocery store, like the one where we buy our wine and beer and uh bananas and carrots and apples, has the donation of food during this season, please donate at checkout. We donated 5 pounds of our locally produced sugar today.

    I didn't want to open it since I get very little at Christmas for presents..but the little kid kicked in..and my elf got me a Painted Pony for my collection. I am now on the hunt for more shelves to hang up in living room to display my collection!!

    Love,

    Thank you. We try to be nice, altho we're warmbloods so it is difficult. Our owner's mother used to run behind her yelling "I thought I raised you to be a lady!" LOL LOL. Now our owner runs behind us yelling for us to mind our manners. Well, we're warmbloods so we tend to get into a lot of trouble. We're just like our owner who was always called a daredevil. Or was it just devil? But we cannot imagine people not having good experience for Christmas. We know a lot of people get depressed at Christmas, so we try to do nice things. One day a year. That's why we asked for Eleanor since she'd been grinched 3x! How can humans do that to other humans? At Christmas? Well a lump of coal in the stockings of grinches! We'll tell chocosanta and snitch on grinches.
