I have mailed my two packages Priority with DC. Both heading south. I am so wishing I tried to fit them in the flat rate boxes. I forget how expensive things are to mail when you don't. But than I would have had to leave things out and I really like to send as much as I can.

AlexWyattMommy

Thank you very Much Kirby
That was fast! I hope that the Flashing Eyeball still flashes. I was a little concerned that it wouldn't work by the time it got to Ilse.

It does, Ilse and Shawny loved the ball and the dogs were freaking out becuase it was flashing! Silly dogs.

Thanks again Kirby.

Feiner Gewurz Spice Cookies
Frosty Snowman Frame Ornament
Mickey & Friends Candy Canes
Faith Notes
Fireplace Ornament (brass type)
Flip top Note pad (Mickey on the cover - Spiderman on the pages *huh???*)
Mickey & Me Photo Frame
9 Four Red Fruits Flavoured tea bags (yum)

AlexWyattMommy
11-16-2006, 06:33 AM
Oops, there was supposed to be 10 tea bags. 2 sets of Five Four red Fruits, cause I wanted as many Fs as possible.

Sorry about the spiderman pages. They all had the wrong characters on the pages inside, but I just loved the covers. I have a Winnie the Pooh with spiderman pages.

Hope none of the food items were squashed.

You can take your ornament to Wal-Mart and they will engrave it for you.

I just thought it was funny, Since Mickey is Disney and Spidey is Universal. Obviously there was a problem somewhere. And no there is no problem with any of the items, they're all perfect! the Fiddle Faddle is my FAVORITE.. it's HEATH BAR CRUNCH!! YUMMY! :) :cheer2: :love: :cheer2:

Glad that you liked everygthing. I just included the ink (no actual F here) to go with the stamps.

You cam pu pictures on the covers, inside squares and triangles. I would put smaller photos on the triangles, cut cutting them does sound like a neat effect. :thumbsup2

I think Frosty hangs on a lamp by looping one arm into the shade, and the other arm balances against the other side. And hey, I'm a writer, I can make things up with the best of them. *grin* I'm glad it got there so quickly and that you like it all!

AlexWyattMommy
11-22-2006, 03:17 PM
I know :sad2: but she has not responded to sending hers out or receiving the one you sent her on the 18th.
I am hoping everything is okay in her world.

11-23-2006, 04:10 PM
I just wanted everyone to know that I have heard from Jchick and she is okay. She has not been home much so she is going to be late mailing her package. She promised to mail it tomorrow. So Dania, keep you eyes open after that for your package. When she catches her breath she will let us know what her daughter rec'd from PixieDust32's DD. Has Shawny rec'd hers?

Hope everyone enjoyed their turkey and is sleeping on full stomaches. :sunny:

AlexWyattMommy
11-26-2006, 09:48 AM
Okay, DisneyCP2002 should be rec'g hers this week.

I need to know if Shawny re'd hers and

if Jchick rec'd hers.

Hoping to call this complete soon so I can concentrate on the next exchanges.

PixieDust32
11-26-2006, 01:20 PM
Shawny received hers! We went on a last minute trip to our Cabin with the in-laws and just got back. Shawny's box was here, she received...

-Fruit Roll ups
-Fun Feather Pen (this one is her favorite)
-Fuzzy Pencils
-Fun foohy erasers
-Fiddle Faddle
-Fun Flavored Candy Canes
-Funky Flip Foot note magnetic note pad

Thank you AmberDansMom.

AlexWyattMommy
11-26-2006, 01:44 PM

Personally, I love Fiddle Faddle. It killed me to send my boxes out as I wanted to keep them for myself. I love Heath bars and mix that with popcorn, well, I'll just keep adding to those pounds.

Anyway, just two more to hear from.
Jchick, did you get your package?

I am still waiting to hear from DisneyCP2002 and Jchick.

I know that Jchick was sent hers and that the other packages sent by her person have all arrived and they were all mailed on the same day.

Jchick said she sent DisneyCP2002 hers the Saturday after Thanksgiving. If she did, it should have been there.

MY PACKAGE HAS BEEN SENT. I just PM'd you OP, no need to get nasty. I have not had time to look at this thread, so if you've been waiting on me to respond to the thread, you really should have emailed me or PM'd me to contact me. My MIL passed away 3 weeks ago, then my grandfather passed on Thursday. It's really been a rough month for my family, and really this is such a small, small thing in the big picture.

BUT MY PACKAGE HAS BEEN SENT...I PROMISE!!!! I will PM you with DC, as I definitely added this.

AlexWyattMommy
12-04-2006, 08:05 PM
I really am sorry to hear about your losses. And yes, of course, to you this is just a small thing. But to me, not knowing your situation, it is a bigger thing. And the reverse would be true. If I had real things going on in my real life, this would certainly pale in comparision. But I would also understand that committments still need to be met.

I apologize, here publicly, and will again personally, for any remarks that sounded snippy or rude. They were not meant to be. I know things happen. We all know things happen. Heck, I have a package I sent to England lost in transit somewhere. So if I was throwing stones, I had better duck for the ones that need to be coming my way.

I am really sorry jchick. My sympathies to you and your family.

AlexWyattMommy
12-05-2006, 11:32 AM
from jchick - I thought that I had posted when my daughter received her's, in fact, I'm pretty sure that I did. She did like it. Sorry if I didn't post exactly what was in it, I know some people sit on the edge of their seats waiting to read that stuff.

Okay, I've gone through the thread twice and I don't see it. So I am posting it here now.

Jchick DD rec'd her package from PixieDust32's DD.

I am still waiting on the DC number to track the last exchange and hopefully we can call this complete soon.

DisneyCP2002
12-05-2006, 09:01 PM
I got mine today from jchick. I got:

Flashlight
Fun fruit
Funny teeth
Fruit snacks
Foam farm animal stickers
Fruit punch to go
photo Frame

Thank you for the great stuff.
