    Hee, hee, hee...shhh...listen...can you hear it? My box is singing the "open me" song very quietly right now but I fear it will get louder as time goes on. Hear that?

    "Open me, open me, no one will know. Have a little peekie, have a little show"
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    I am so glad I took part in this secret santa, because this is the first holiday without my mother. She went to heaven in March. Here is to you mom!!!!!!! She would have loved being on the board, and being involved in swaps, and was an experienced sewer/quilter. So glad I got my secret santa package. Thank you again Santa!!!!

    Secret Santa package from Hickory, NC stuffed into my box today while I sat on my deck and watched, only to find that it had been torn to some extent. Hopefully my goods were not damaged in the process; I am not a peeker so I will wait until our reveal date to assess any possible damage and to enjoy my secret surprise.

    Mine is singing too. Must be a special signal that we need to open them...I am SO afraid the little elf inside singing will suffocate!! Wouldn't opening it "Just a little biit" be the humane thing to do??? We could promise not to peek thru the hole!! HMMMM but my DD could and tell me what she sees!!

    Just been reading through the posts...it didn't occur to me to look at this post again until a few days ago...so I should tell Santa that lives in Great Falls MT. that my package arrived in early Nov. I had a bad day a while back and I almost opened it to make me feel better...but I didn't (pat) (pat) on my back.

    You guys have been having way too much fun on here!!! I think some of you have been into the egg nog a little early!

    It came upon the midnight clear,
    That glorious song of old,
    From angels bending near the earth,
    To touch their harps of gold:
    "Peace on the earth, goodwill to men
    From heavens all gracious King!"
    The world in solemn stillness lay
    To hear the angels sing.



    Still through the cloven skies they come,
    With peaceful wings unfurled;
    And still their heavenly music floats
    O'er all the weary world:
    Above its sad and lowly plains
    They bend on hovering wing,
    And ever o'er its Babel sounds
    The blessed angels sing.

    O ye beneath life's crushing load,
    Whose forms are bending low,
    Who toil along the climbing way
    With painful steps and slow;
    Look now, for glad and golden hours
    Come swiftly on the wing;
    Oh rest beside the weary road
    And hear the angels sing.

    For lo! the days are hastening on,
    By prophets seen of old,
    When with the ever-circling years
    Shall come the time foretold,
    When the new heaven and earth shall own
    The Prince of Peace, their King,
    And the whole world send back the song
    Which now the angels sing.

    Be glad that you cannot hear me singing along. I love to sing Christmas Carols, but cannot carry a tune to save my soul.

    My family and co workers are amazed that I am participating in this swap with people I have never met.

    Truth be told I have had more fun shopping for someone I have never met than I generally do for my own family.

    Now for my family I try to do activities instead of physical gifts. The last few years I have taken my mum and mil to a Christmas concert.

    My kids are teens, they love the annual Christmas Tree Hunt, more than their gifts. Now we get them gift cards, so they can get exactly what they want. But the boys still get socks.
    Attending University. I will graduate a year after my son and year before my daughter.

    Dashing through the snow
    In a one horse open sleigh
    O'er the fields we go
    Laughing all the way
    Bells on bob tails ring
    Making spirits bright
    What fun it is to laugh and sing
    A sleighing song tonight

    Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells
    Jingle all the way
    Oh, what fun it is to ride
    In a one horse open sleigh
    Jingle bells, jingle bells
    Jingle all the way
    Oh, what fun it is to ride
    In a one horse open sleigh

    A day or two ago
    I thought I'd take a ride
    And soon Miss Fanny Bright
    Was seated by my side
    The horse was lean and lank
    Misfortune seemed his lot
    We got into a drifted bank
    And then we got upsot

    Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells
    Jingle all the way
    Oh, what fun it is to ride
    In a one horse open sleigh
    Jingle bells, jingle bells
    Jingle all the way
    Oh, what fun it is to ride
    In a one horse open sleigh yeah

    Jingle bells, jingle bells
    Jingle all the way
    Oh, what fun it is to ride
    In a one horse open sleigh
    Jingle bells, jingle bells
    Jingle all the way
    Oh, what fun it is to ride
    In a one horse open sleigh

    I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas
    Mommy and Daddy are mad.
    I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas
    'Cause I ain't been nuttin' but bad.

    I broke my bat on Johnny's head;
    Somebody snitched on me.
    I hid a frog in sister's bed;
    Somebody snitched on me.

    I spilled some ink on Mommy's rug;
    I made Tommy eat a bug;
    Bought some gum with a penny slug;
    Somebody snitched on me.

    Oh, I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas
    Mommy and Daddy are mad.
    I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas
    'Cause I ain't been nuttin' but bad.

    I put a tack on teacher's chair;
    Somebody snitched on me.
    I tied a knot in Suzy's hair;
    Somebody snitched on me.
    I did a dance on Mommy's plant.
    Climbed a tree and tore my pants.
    Filled that sugar bowl with ants;
    Somebody snitched on me.

    Oh, I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas
    Mommy and Daddy are mad.
    I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas
    'Cause I ain't been nuttin' but bad.

    So you better be good whatever you do
    'Cause if you're bad, I'm warning you,
    You'll get nuttin' for Christmas.

    Not nuttin'!

    Box sitting in the corner singing.
