It's HEEERRRE!!
It's in a pretty green box, with a gentle warning not to open until Dec 7th.
It jingles, it's heavy and doesn't smell like anything.
Thank you my Canadian Santa!

Wrapping not required. I didn't wrap. Would have never fit everything in the box.

If you haven't yet received your SS box, let Terri know so she can check the tracking records. All gifts were supposed to be mailed by the 14th and if you haven't yet received yours, it may have been misdirected, somehow. :eek:

Don't forget some people are mailing internationally, so those packages may take a lot longer. even having been mailed early.

Here is another family favorite....an old favorite....It is a recipe for a carrot cake but I make mine into muffins....I just cook it less than asked for...maybe 20 mins....I watch them in the end and do the toothpick test. I also add other things at time....cranberries , strawberries chopped up or rasberries...whatever I have...I omit the nuts because my granddaughter is allergic...but it is delicious with.....I also add more icing sugar to the icing....I find it is just a bit too cream cheesy.....maybe another cup....makes a lot...
