    GreyHunterHorse was my elf this year. Thank you so much, GHH!

    I got homemade horse cookies, peppermints that both my horse and I will enjoy, a cute tumbler, and a fabulous pair of gloves that have these special things on the fingers so that I can use my touch screen phone while wearing them.

    Everything is so appreciated! This has been my first year participating in the COTH Secret Santa, and I am so glad that I did. Thanks again, GHH.

    My little one will be home the 27th so we are doing Christmas then. I did peek in the box last week though but didn't unwrap. I went desperately searching for sweets even though I think I said not to send any. . I will post on 27th and update you. Glad everybody likes their stuff. It was SO hard not to buy you "fun" bell boots. :P

    I tore into my goodies this morning... I got yummy treats for the horses, dogs and us, a neat ornament and a pair of no turn bell boots which I desperately needed! I just bit into one of the chocolate chicken wings, those were cute and delicious. I forgot to take the squeezy buns to the barn when I fed tonight but will take them up when I do night check later. They will devour them, I'm sure!

    I hope you liked your gifts from me also, and that you're having a wonderful Christmas!

    Default Thank you, thank you, thank you to dghunter!

    Wow, dghunter! What a fabulous elf!

    First of all, the timing was perfect - my box arrived on Christmas Eve, so I did not have to show much will power in waiting until Christmas morning to open my presents! And they were the first ones I opened!

    Can't wait to read Casino Royale again, and I have heard The Company is great, and it was on my list to buy.

    The puppies (young and old) loved their Kong balls and treats, and the peppermints are already in my barn bag, ready to bring out to be shared with humans and equine alike.

    Your baked goods are so yummy - I will be sad when they are all gone (which won't be long).

    I love my "box 'o relaxation" and can't wait to try Foaling Around's soaps. I recently "Liked" her on Facebook after reading about her here, but had not ordered any yet.

    And last but not least, the saddle pad is absolutely beautiful! I am going to be afraid to use it, because I don't want to mess it up! I will be so jealous if you are talented enough to have done the hand-painting customization yourself! I could never do that!

    Thank you again, so much, for your thoughtful gifts! I hope you had a really wonderful Christmas, and that 2013 is full of joy and laughter.

    -horsey dish towels
    -very cute tractor supply hat
    -printed copies of some of her own recipes that look insanely yummy
    -an Easy Chef recipe cd
    -a tea and silverware caddy -very cute

    In a very random parcel that arrived yesterday that had zero clues on what it was or where it was from and very light. Lots of fun bath stuff from Lush. Me thinks a bubble bath is on the list for tonight.

    oops just found a card for the Lush bath stuff! lol Apparently it's not from you Choco! It's from my best friend. lol

    Thanks soo much Chocomare! You did very very well! Can't wait to start cooking/baking !

    Oh I am glad... there was so much more I wanted to send (i.e., chocolate) but was afraid it wouldn't survive the long trip!

    The caddy I took a chance on.... it was hand made/painted by a dear friend of mine and while it was always technically for sale, she couldn't bring herself to sell it. But she's had a rough year (hubby left her and took the kids ) and she needed to reduce her stock. She does lovely work.

    Anytime you want more recipes, just holler

    I got your lovely Christmas card today, Blackstallion2! Thank you for the sweet sentiments. Makes me wish I did christmas cards....one of these years I'll get around to it. I'll be keeping this one out well into the new year.

    Smile JUSTABAY you rock !!!

    Thank you so much. Your gifts brought a smile to my heart ! I love the handmade mittens. The colors are lovely. I will only wear them for special outings 'cuz I don't want to lose them ( very good at losing 1 glove from the pair ;-/ ). Oh my gosh! Love my Hudson's Bay mug in my fave stripe colors. I have matching hat and scarf. I have never seen the mug here AND filled with Truffles (yummm). The polos are lovely. Teal will look great on Lexus. Since she got hurt she has to be wrapped (can't cheat with boots).AND we will match when it gets warmer and I can wear the socks. The scarf is beautiful. The colors match the colors in the mittens. It will really dress up my winter coat. I can't wait to show it off. Hmmm I will have to pin it so I don't lose it--I am a ditz but would be heartbroken to lose the scarf or the mittens. And on top of all of thses gift Hot Chocolate variety pack and fudge !!!!! Brown Sugar fudge covered in chocolate. It sounds so rich.I am saving these for New Year's day to start off 2013 right ;-)
    I can't thank you enough. You really brightened my Christmas. Even the card was special.
    THANK YOU SOOOOOOO MUCH.
    I hope that 2013 brings you lots of joy.

    Bless you,
    twinkle

    Twinkle - so glad you liked everything!! I had such a great time shopping for your gifts - as you know some were bought from my local Mennonite community and they are always a pleasure to visit and buy from. I am so happy that the mug wasn't broken in transit and that everything arrived safely, and on time!! Hope you enjoy all of it, again it was so much fun shopping for you this year! All the best for 2013!

    KPF, THANK YOU! My daughter LOVES her coloring book. I LOVE my hat. I have a hat collection and LOVE heather grey so your choice was PERFECT. The patches are also awesome and so thoughtful. Thanks so much for making my Christmas special. Merry Christmas!

    My elf didn't tell me who she was either. I sent a PM, and there's something fun about the mystery if she wants to stay anonymous.

    Apollo made out like a bandit - he is adoring all the treats! I usually just give Nicker Makers or carrots, so trying all the new kinds of cookies is just awesome for him.

    Thank you again, SS!

    I'm hoping my giftee liked everything. Haven't heard anything from her other then she got it. Never heard if she got the other package that was being sent either. So hoping it all made it there.

    Yay! Glad you liked your stuff, PM! I ended up buying myself a pair of those cashmere socks as well and wore them the other day, they are TOASTY! Not sure if you've tried the nuts yet but they're addictive, so look out-- they're Virginia Diner which are among the best of the VA peanuts in my opinion.

    My horses *loff* the Squeezy Buns... they're begging for them now! And I'm trying to control my portions of the yummy chocolate , thanks again and hope y'all have a happy New Year!

    I'm SO sorry I haven't thanked you yet - it's been a very hellish past two weeks.

    But I was so overwhelmed when I opened my packages (yep, I got the other one)! You did a wonderful job; I loved everything! The hat and cooler from Adelaide were especially cool - I've been wearing the hat to work every day

    My lovely blue Roma pad is great, and I've been contemplating getting my boy's registered name on it *wink wink*

    And thank you SO much for the scarves. I've been wearing them all over the place. Pretty sure my family is wondering about my sudden obsession....

    Little Sammie thanks you for her brand-new toy. She refuses to let me have it to play tug-of-war haha!

    The soaps (from our very own LovelyBay) were just great. I opened them as soon as they arrived and it just made my day!

    You're so wonderful and you made the holidays bearable! I was completely beside myself. Thank you, thank you!!!!

    you're a GREAT SS! and the only person I received any horsey items from :-)

    F I N A L L Y! Superminion, I don't know HOW you knew what to send! That book is PERFECT for my endless desire to help my chronically lame gelding! The tee shirt is something I would buy! THe bridle was way over the top and will be put to good use!

    It came on time btw, but I have had an ongoing battle with ATT after attempting to sign up for uverse to save some money. No phone, no internet and new computer has not been compatible with COTH! I just got internet service back and figured out how to get on here with the new computer!!

    THank YOU SO MUCH! You made my CHristmas!!!! Cothers are the BEST!

    Phew! I was worried! I was really hoping that you didn't think I grinched you! DD and I had a ball shopping... That book is by far my most favorite and wanted to share, I hope that it helps!
