    WOW, is that all it is Dreamer?! I have been so busy that I really haven't given it too much thought. And my secret santa box is sitting on my vanity looking at me every day. Truly, I have been so busy I don't have too much time to ponder on it. It's a nice little box. It's been sitting there patiently waiting for me to open it. I wonder, did I thank my secret santa? Secret Santa, thank for the lovely box you sent. It has been very good. It's not trying to entice me to be a bad girl. That being said, I am off the next 3 days. So, hmm.....

    My secret giftee posted awhile back that she received her box. She also posted a very nice thank you. But, I'm not saying when or who!!!!

    Thank you Dreamer for all the great christmas songs. I am getting into the christmas spirit. I want to make cutout cookies this week. I love to decorate them.

    I see quite a few of you received your boxes right after Thanksgiving. I sincerely hope the mailman make a bunch of deliveries this week. See you guys soon.

    A sad ending to the greatest Thanksgiving I have had in years..took my daughter to the airport to go back to Texas..will miss her horribly..Friday my other daughter went back to college near the Alabama line..She will be missed, but will be back in 2 weeks when the semester ends...I really hate them growing up and leaving home!! Only have 2 left home full time...7 on their own, but most live fairly close..
    I am so excited about this swap!! I can't wait for opening day, but will miss the banter and fun here!!

    Aww ladies, I know exactly how you feel. My 23 year old son lives in FL with his father. And my daughter lives in NC with her hubby and my new grandbaby. I'm 12 hours away from both of them. I am glad they are independent. But, I sure do miss them!!

    Sorry for the sad Pat. Maybe you'll just have to join in another swap when SS is over. There are lots of swaps here on the QB to enjoy. Maybe you'll consider joining in on something else. Hope to see you "there". (Wherever that is for you.)

    Did you get your SS box from customs? Did they say WHY they captured it

Now it is sitting on my cutting table staring at me and whispering - open me, open me now!
    I seriously wish, that a dream like this, would be true in Germany also!

    Yes, I god It!!! Jipihjehay. As roseirish48 alreay wrote, the parcel was to big, not for the porch but for the given value

    But i was forced to open the parcel. (so I left the naughty corner only whit one feet)
    The whole story:
    Today I finished my worked earlier and traveled to the customs office. There where two mens working. One maybe 35 and one maybe 55. I had given my customer note to the older guy. He went go to the adjoining room. I was waiting five Minutes. Sometimes I heard a mhmm and a ohpf. Then he came back, carrying a really big big big big box. I thought, could not really be mine, to big, but indeed it was written Secret Sant on the top.
    He said: Please open the package.

    I told him that I also donīt know what is inside, because itīs for christmas. Again after five Minutes, he helped already to open the parcel, because it was wrapped really really good. I opened the parcel and was already stunning. Inwardly I thought already wooohoow, there are so many gifts inside, yippieh.

    Both of the guys take now a look into the package. The older guy asked: For how many people are those gifts? I told him, it for me, the upcoming baby... he looked seríously on me... for my husband, I said, smiling to him.
    Thats plenty he said.
    I thought: Please donīt asked what DH will do with the whole fabric...

    The younger guy said: Please open the wrapped gifts, maybe there is a Laptop or something technical inside, because it is so heavy. So I opend it and I started jumping and giggling inside of my mind, about a lot more of plenty plenty plenty gifts.
    The younger looked disapointed about the whole "women stuff" and said: ok, I guess the tax form is correct.
    So I took the parcel and left the office quickly.


    So Iīm really sorry that the parcel is now already open, but it was out of my authority. I told Santa already that I personaly feel really bad about this fault I swear that I will not use the gifts before the ninth of december.

    Thanks a lot to my secret santa, I wrote you already a PM!

    Oh I hope whoever my secret santa is hasn't been worrying - I got my parcel at least 10 days ago, and I let Terri know, but I didn't realize I should post here.

    I shook it a little bit. It made a slight jingling noise.

    How long 'til the ninth?!
