Got all my stuff. I had to go get different things, 'cause my person doesn't drink tea or coffee. Which is okay, because I get to keep them for myself.
Just need to fit it all in a box and it'll go out today.

Meriweather
12-04-2006, 12:46 PM
You know, quite a few people put down that they don't drink tea or coffee......so the person you are sending to won't really know who it is for ;)
At least 10 people put that.

I got it!!! :cool1:

Thanks so much to Jamie (PoohGirl71) for a great holiday package! :teeth:

A fun mug with Starbucks cocoa and raspberry chocolate cocoa (don't worry Jamie, someone here is going to love it), 2 boxes of candy (I already ate a caramel), Christmas dish towels, a Santa potholder and a teddy bear pot holder, sugar cookie mix and a recipe box! All in a really cute Christmas basket! :banana:

Whoa! That's more than Santa could fit in his sleigh! :thumbsup2

Thanks again Jamie - it was a great surprise to find something fun in the mail instead of bills. :wave:

And I'll be mailing my package out tomorrow. :moped:

Pooh Girl 71

:rotfl: this is my own fault for writing my letters so closely together :blush: . It's actually Johnie :) . DH thinks this is funny and is now calling me Jamie. Of course that is loads better than when someone got my name once wrong and was calling me Jommy.

Anywho, I'm glad you liked the package. You're very welcome. I had fun putting it together. I swear I couldn't find regular cocoa anywhere!

Hey there, My package is here. I haven't opened it yet. I'm waiting for my dad to come home from the hospital since I told him all about it. I will have mine in the mail on time I promise. He's been in the hospital since Monday night, he's better but they don't know whats wrong with him. He's all worried we'll have to postpone our trip to Disneyworld. I just want him to be home.

Meriweather
12-06-2006, 08:09 PM
Oh dear....hope things are better with him.
When are you supposed to go to Disney World.

Glad to hear your package arrived. Your sender was just getting worried that it went to the wrong address ;)
thanks for checking in with us.

We are supposed to go Jan 2-9th so there's still a chance we can go, if the doctors say it's ok. He'll be sad to find out I won't let him go on Space mountain anymore.

Hi,

I sent my package out TODAY with DC.

I do have a return address on the box, and my name & address is there.

It will be from Kathryn in MO.

Sorry about that.

Take care

You said Penguins and cooking. I loved the plush penguin. I really wanted to keep him. My son wanted to keep the white chocolate chips. He was really mad I put them in the box.
Those socks wash and wear amazingly well. As long as I don't snag them, they last a long time.
Glad you liked it all. We had a fun time shopping for you. :Pinkbounc

You are welcome! I am glad that you (and your Dad) like everything and that your Dad is doing better. Your Father made me & my husband laugh about the Jello-Mold comment. I just might have to try that with the Snowman tray that I bought myself. :rotfl: (just make sure that you spray it with a little Pam cooking spray first). I take it that everything made it there in one piece. Take care of your father, and have a great trip to WDW.

I received your package on Friday---it was on my front porch when I got home from work. One of these days I wil get my NEW computer set up and then I will have internet at home. Until then, I have to use it at work when I can find the time.

Okay.....here goes.........

I received a nice note from Patti about "garlic", which I had sent her in a previous exchange.

She sent me: a cookbook----Grandma's Wartime Baking Book
--a set of three melamine mixing bowls in green with holiday decorations
--potholder/towel set: red with embroidered reindeers
--potholder/oven mitt/towel set with cute penguins
--magnetic notepad with snowman decoration, including matching magnet and magnetic pencil

I hope that was all that was in the BIG box. I was so excited about getting a gift that I put items in their "proper" place and then remembered that I needed to make a list for posting. :rotfl2:

Thanks Patti for it all and Happy Holidays,

I received your package on Friday---it was on my front porch when I got home from work. One of these days I wil get my NEW computer set up and then I will have internet at home. Until then, I have to use it at work when I can find the time.

Okay.....here goes.........

I received a nice note from Patti about "garlic", which I had sent her in a previous exchange.

She sent me: a cookbook----Grandma's Wartime Baking Book
--a set of three melamine mixing bowls in green with holiday decorations
--potholder/towel set: red with embroidered reindeers
--potholder/oven mitt/towel set with cute penguins
--magnetic notepad with snowman decoration, including matching magnet and magnetic pencil

I hope that was all that was in the BIG box. I was so excited about getting a gift that I put items in their "proper" place and then remembered that I needed to make a list for posting. :rotfl2:

Thanks Patti for it all and Happy Holidays,
Cindy

Glad you liked it Cindy! And good luck with that computer! :teeth:

Yes, the mail is taking longer then expected. :(
I have been waiting on other packages as well and they have still not arrived :(.

Meriweather

I know my priority that usually take 2 days are taking 4-5 :(
I guess that is why we try not to have exchanges this time of year ;)

Hopefully we will get some news of some arrivals today.

First, I have to admit & apologize. My package was mailed but it went out late (yesterday morning) but should still arrive by end of week, even if there is a delay. Sent Priority & D.C.

Next, I received my package yesterday from MickeyMamma and I will post later what was in the package. I will tell you that it was GREAT stuff!! But I want to make sure I don't forget anything and right now, I know I will. And since the box is at home and I am at work (shhh!) ... I will wait until I get home to post.

I will try to get to the PO tomorrow to get it in the mail. Maybe it will get there at the same time, considering how long part one is taking! I really apologize, I am not usually so scatterbrained but the holidays have a way of making me loose my mind! :blush:

Christmas Kitchen Towel
Santa Claus Ornament with my name on it
Cookie Cutters (will use these this weekend)
Eeyore Christmas Socks
Different Sprinkly Sugars for my cookies
Disney Princess Pen
Santa Bowl
Candle in a tin (love these for when I travel) - Pineapple Upside Down Cake
Box of Ginger Herb Tea
Box of Chai (mmm!)

And, last but not least, something that at first I thought was a nice LONG note from the sender . . .
about 6 different recipes for different foods from around WDW!!!! I can't wait to try some of these!

Thank you SOOO much!!! This was an awesome box to get! I would have never thought of the recipe idea.

I am so glad it got there Nancy. And thank you for being so understanding! Several years ago when my kids were small, I used to hide packages all over the house, drawers, closets, garage etc.... Well, I found 4 gifts in one of my drawers about 2 weeks later! I thought about saving them for birthdays or something, but I knew they would really get lost so they enjoyed another little Christmas! :confused3

Meriweather
12-14-2006, 01:53 PM
:rotfl: I have one closet that I store all gifts ;) No one better open it.

Any news today? The rest of those sure should be arriving any time now ::yes::

Madisonznana
12-14-2006, 03:12 PM
Hi Nancy, The rest of your gift is in the mail. I sent it out Priority, but they said Priority is a day behind. I grabbed the bag and ran to the PO so it is not in Christmas wrap, just the tissue paper that the store wraps it in. If there are any price tags don't peek!! I have been an unbelieveable flake this week!!

I am so glad that you enjoyed it so much. I am never quite sure what to send for these things so I put together things that I thought I would like to get. The chocolate caramel tea was my big score! I thought it sounded like something you would enjoy.

And the recipes.... I have been collecting Disney recipes for a while and since you like to bake, I thought that you would enjoy those.

So have fun with it all and Happy Holidays!
