    We've almost finished shopping,
    We've kept our agent hopping,
    We ordered plaid today,
    No tack shops here so we ordered from far away,
    We only have one more item to find,
    It's downtown at the tourist depot in kind,
    Then when all is here, we'll send it all up there,

    We hope Eleanor likes our selection,
    We can't say more cause we're in witness protection!

    We love to shop, it's fun you know?

    We warmbloods thought about sending Eleanor's horse Ury, Urly, we forget how to spell it! Anyway, we thought about sending her horse some treats, but after sampling many treats (burp) we decided they weren't good enough for him so we sacrificed and ate them all.

    But we recommend that other secret santa elves send treats to horses, just remember:

    We never eat fruitcake because it has rum,
    And one little bite turns a horse to a bum,
    Oh can you imagine a sorrier sight?
    Than a mare eating fruitcake until she gets tight!
    hiccup.

    Now if we could just get the top off of the tin of treats we bought for Eleanor, we could sample them as well. They are made locally.

    Now that my e-mail is sent, I really want to start shopping

    There's an Oktoberfest celebration by me that always has great crafty stuff and I'm going to look there in a couple weekends just in case anything pops out someone might like!

    Shopping is almost done,
    We're glad to say,
    Your plaid item came from Dover today!
    Now just one more local item to acquire,
    Then we'll pack all and send to you to admire.
    We hope your California item gets there soon,
    You'd think that Canada was farther than the moon,
    So we're shipping everything early to you,
    So all grinches can this year get the flu.

    Ok so we may have had a little trouble rhyming there, but we're warmbloods trying to do what's fair.

    Eleanor won't be grinched this year!

    ETA It may be there, it may be there! Our first package may have arrived at Eleanor's! Now to buy the last item locally and pack all with plaid to 2nd mailing. Not bad for 2 warmbloods with a head start on Christmas shopping.

    Hah. I have the same problem. I sent it and promptly thought 'oh darn, X would be nice, I should've mentioned that' ... and then I forgot what X was. Oops.

    Flying up from Los Angel-eeees,
    Bringing you a couple of keys,

    We sent Eleanor a kilo,
    Of Scottish breakfast tea.

    She wanted some last year, but the grinch drank it all.
    We hope it is good.

    We've still got to buy one more item for mailing #2. We surely did not want to volunteer to be secret santas and then not produce. And we've still got a sampling of other teas as well as the plaid item from Dover to send. As well as a few items we won't mention here, so they will be a surprise.

    Oh we have to thank the lady in California who shipped the tea. IF she remembered not to put our name in the package. We have to escape detection, We warmbloods are in witness protection!

    ETA Eleanor had wanted to save the package till Xmas, but we needed for her to sample the kilo since we were worried it might be stale. The other package we will send, she can hold till Xmas or tear into it as we would.

    All is well in my world today with the first sip of my morning tea.

    I didn't even look at the packing slip and I won't as it was on the outside of the package and DH tossed the package. haha

    Now I can't wait to get my name so I can have the same fun as my warmbloods.
