    Not fair?
    But, I cannot guarantee it won't be open sooner. Gotta remember, I have 3 little ones that are running around and they LOVE packages!
    Terri... Remember LAST Year... YOU got COAL and lots of it... You DON'T want a repeat...

    Okay, it sounds like the naughty corner is having way to much fun. Is there room for one more? I have a bottle of rum from the Carribbean and I'm sure it with mix well with the egg nog.

    you guys are crazy and hilarious. the Naughty room is getting to be the place to hang out while waiting for the reveal day. But IMHO there are more than just naughty people there. I have been good--put my box in the corner of my bedroom and have let it alone. My son used to drive limousines a few years back and all unopened bottles of liquor left behind gravitated to my dining room closet shelves. I dont drink that much so they have been aging nicely. Got a couple of whiskey and 3-4 bottles of various wines. Think they will gain me an invitation to join the party even if I havent been naughty ( for once)?

    I got 2 pkgs from my SS and one said to open on Dec 1. I opened it to find the most beautiful pillowcase and a poem to go with it. I LOVE IT!!!!! We are leaving Monday for a month long trip and I was wondering what I could do for a pillowcase it the car, because mine are all white. The pillowcase is perfect, darker colors and so colorful!!

    Thank you,
    Secret Santa

    Did you order something that you're forgetting about chewboo? I do that all the time. See it, order it and then when it shows up I'm amazed. Think I should start keeping better track of my impulses.
    Linda 58 what a nice surprise from your Santa, she or he was certainly thinking of you on your trip.

    Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus

    By Francis Pharcellus Church, Editor of the New York Sun,
    in response to a letter by Virginia O'Hanlan


    "We take pleasure in answering thus prominently the
    communication below, expressing at the same time
    our great gratification that its faithful author is
    numbered among the friends of The Sun:

    Dear Editor,
    I am eight years old. Some of my little friends say there is no Santa Claus. Papa says, "If you see it in the Sun, it's so." Please tell me the truth, is there a Santa Claus?
    Virginia O'Hanlon
    Virginia, your little friends are wrong. They have been affected by the skepticism of a skeptical age. They do not believe except they see. They think that nothing can be which is not comprehensible by their little minds. All minds, Virginia, whether they be men's or children's, are little. In this great universe of ours, man is a mere insect, an ant, in his intellect as compared with the boundless world about him, as measured by the intelligence capable of grasping the whole of truth and knowledge.

    Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy. Alas! how dreary would be the world if there were no Santa Claus! It would be as dreary as if there were no Virginias. There would be no childlike faith then, no poetry, no romance to make tolerable this existence. We should have no enjoyment, except in sense and sight. The external light with which childhood fills the world would be extinguished.
    Not believe in Santa Claus! You might as well not believe in fairies. You might get your papa to hire men to watch in all the chimneys on Christmas eve to catch Santa Claus, but even if you did not see Santa Claus coming down, what would that prove? Nobody sees Santa Claus, but that is no sign that there is no Santa Claus. The most real things in the world are those that neither children nor men can see. Did you ever see fairies dancing on the lawn? Of course not, but that's no proof that they are not there. Nobody can conceive or imagine all the wonders there are unseen and unseeable in the world.

    You tear apart the baby's rattle and see what makes the noise inside, but there is a veil covering the unseen world which not the strongest man, nor even the united strength of all the strongest men that ever lived could tear apart. Only faith, poetry, love, romance, can push aside that curtain and view and picture the supernal beauty and glory beyond. Is it all real? Ah, Virginia, in all this world there is nothing else real and abiding.

    No Santa Claus! Thank God! he lives and lives forever. A thousand years from now, Virginia, nay 10 times 10,000 years from now, he will continue to make glad the heart of childhood."

    Listen!!!! You guys are having all the fun while I am busting my butt over here quilting for the needy. My fingers are raw, my back hurts, my eyes are crossed, and my arches have fallen. I sent 5 quilts to Dottie on Monday and am almost ready to send her 5 more tomorrow. A couple are crib quilts, but the ones I am making are BIG, full size quilts. Sunday I will take the day off of quilting to bake for the partay on Sunday night, and then the leftovers go to my dentist with me on Monday.

    Don't let anyone drink my wine up! I will stop by later. I have to go down and bind several quilts. Nancia and I were busy little beavers yesterday.

    Five Little Evergreens
    Five little evergreens
    outside in a row.

    The first one said,
    "Let's look at the snow."

    The second one said,
    "Oh-oh, it's getting cold."
    The third one said,
    "Christmas is coming so I'm told."

    The fourth one said,
    "I hope someone decorates me."

    The fifth one said,
    "We'll just have to wait and see."

P-A-R-T-A-Y!! WOOHOO! B.Y.O.S (scissors). i'll pick up grann on my way by. her dogs will have to stay home-- one bite of either one and the whole box will be swallowed! ooooo, i'm so excited!! I CAN"T WAIT!!!!!!
    All I have to do is warp my package in batting. The dogs will take care of the rest . . . if they can get the package out the puppy door.

    Boy, they really were clever with the lyrics. Guess we had to get to the 60's for good lyrics like- "yummy, yummy, yummy I've got love in my tummy" Today's music can't compete with that.
    I keep getting a message that my message is too short. I've never seen that before.

    I'll take them. I will make a "bottle tree" in my perennial garden. You take a big dead stick with lots of branches, and stick it into the ground. Then you put a bottle on the end of each branch. They are just gorgeous!

    Will you be putting this "bottle tree" back by the new fence, Grann? I think that will just be a wonderful touch there...hehe
