    I would like to say a big "thank you!!!" to my elf this year, Tiffany01, for her thoughtful gift. I had kind of a rough day at work and that put a big smile on my face. I will enjoy "A Christmas Story," my DVD collection is my pride and I've been meaning to add that movie for years - who doesn't love Ralphie?! The socks look super comfy, and of course I will enjoy the Steelers lanyard for my work ID. My horse will love the candy canes Thanks again!! Merry Christmas!!

    I know those types of people in the real world

    I was actually thinking about not making lemon bars this year but I guess now I'll have to!

    Eek! I should have said - something in there is semi-perishable, so you should open that one at least right away! It is the biggest, rectangular shaped package.

    Glad the box made it to ya

    Default Oh twinkle.....

    Your gift is on its way - however my majikal elf powers do not extend to spatial relations and I must admit I rather overestimated the amount of space inside the shipping box... Unfortunately there may be some...erm...spillage of goodies out of the sides so PLEASE do not use scissors or anything sharp to open the box!

    I also hope the postal service helper elves are gentle with the box...It does contain some fragile items! Please let me know when it arrives!

    I heard from my elf once in November but nothing since... I am still hopeful though that he or she is still elfing away and hasn't forgotten!

    Default I could not wait!

    Well that box sitting on my table was taunting me last night so I opened it up.
    WOW!There was a beautiful card included that revealed my Elf and inside was a small bucket in my colors fulled with small wrapped presents! And a bag of horse cookies for Miss Mare!
    I was so excited that I have decided to make my gift last extra long by pretending it is an Advent Calendar and opening one gift every night. Last night I unwrapped a roll of purple tape. I can now make all my stuff to ensure it does not walk away at my busy barnThis will prolong my suspense and joy at a gift from my favorite stranger!

    Same thing happened to me! I had JUST sent abrant her package and that same night a package from her was sitting on the porch. It about blew my mind and I spent more than a few mins - as this is my first SS adventure - very perplexed!


    So I emailed Susan and asked if this is how the game is supposed to be played - and she said sometimes it just works out that way.

    I received my Elf's gift and was blown away! Thank you so much, horsefaerie! My husband has already eaten all the walnuts and the seasoning was beyond delish! I've never tasted anything like it before. The shirt is perfect, I'm wearing it right now. The backpack will be wonderful for horse shows, as will the visor! The little note book is perfect to take to the barn and record our rides. Willow inhaled 4 of her treats and now I can't open my tack trunk without shameless begging! My daughter has been 'talking' to her horse cards all morning, and we put the picture frame in our bedroom! You hit the nail on the head! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I'm so blessed!

    Oh my gosh! I wear horse hair!! I just got my package...which of course I opened! THANK YOU!!! I love everything!! The saddle pad is GORGEOUS, the boot socks are way too cute, the wine charms are really awesome, the tin of goodies - oh my!! And I'm not sure if you're trying to give me a subtle hint that my skin needs some help, but it does, so the bag of skin/hair care treats is fantastic too! And I happily have a lesson tonight so we'll see how Kip likes his treats as well!

    THANK YOU!!

    I know who my Secret Santa is! Thank you BIG RED OTTB!!! For the fragrant gifts. My living room smells very sweet and it's not coming from the Homemade Peppermint Patties my TBs are going to trample me over, or the yummy chocolate dipped cookies that I am NOt sharing! I only opened the gifts marked perishible tonight. I am *planning* to wait until Christmas to open the rest. But I will keep trying to figure out the wonderful scents I am smelling

    PS I tried to bake. Peppermint Patties from Sunkissed Acres Cookbook years ago and ruined a cookie sheet when they went SPLATTIE and had to be pried off with a crowbar! But my herd, which included my blackstallion devoured every single Splattie crumb I scraped off so THANK YOU for the splattie proof recipe! I will try again this year

    YAY!!! I'm glad you like the goodies!!

    As soon as I read that your horses were peppermint addicts, I knew exactly what cookies I'd be baking for them! The recipe originally called to put the peppermints in while they cookies baked....and it made a mess last year! So I changed up the recipe this year, since the cookies are plenty soft enough to put the peppermints in right out of the oven. I'm also glad you like the human cookies! They were a new recipe I saw in a magazine of all things, and I thought I'd try 'em. I realized after I had sent the package off that I forgot to include that recipe...it's posted here though, if you want to make 'em!

    I'm not telling what smells so good....I think you'll like it though!

    MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

    I'm also impressed with USPS....a rare thing! Shipped from CA early Monday, arrived in Virginia early this morning judging by Blackstallion2's posting. I'm used to anything shipped to me via Priority Mail taking a week, and feeling lucky that anything else shipped through USPS showed up at all. They picked good timing to come through, though!

    Oh I am SOOOOO glad you liked everything!! I was sweating it out over whether or not that saddle pad would be too crazy, but I just loved it so I hoped you would as well! The treats (well, except for the tootsie rolls) are some vintage GA tastes! And no, no subtle skin hints from me, those are just some products I love so I thought I would share! Merry Christmas!
