    I got mine! It's sitting on a cabinet right now and I want to open it so badly.

    Still waiting for my gift to arrive. I'm patient. It's only Thursday. :)

    I opened mine away from me and reached inside blindly to see if it was wrapped and I could take it out of the box. That's how crazy I am.

    Is anyone besides ZR waiting on a package? The only other person I haven't heard from is Collingwood Nick.

    Since I may not get another chance before I head out of town, I am making an announcement.

    You may open your gifts next week, starting on the 22nd. Please take pictures and post them! It's fine to name who bought for you, of course.

    If your gift doesn't arrive until the 22nd or later, you can, of course, open it immediately!

    I look forward to seeing what everyone got! :D

    I decided that I'll be good and open mine either tomorrow night (Christmas eve) or on Christmas itself. When is everyone else opening theirs? Is anyone still waiting?

    These were given to me by Collingwood Nick.

    Many thanks again to you for these wonderful gifts, CN. :)

    No worries, I'm glad you like them!

    I'm opening mine when I get back home, so the 28th or thereabouts.

    A mysterious package!

    [​IMG]

    Is there a label? From whom might it be?

    [​IMG]

    Oh, a shady, anonymous sort. But it came in a Royal Mail package, so I know it's from the UK.

    What could be inside?

    [​IMG]

    A book! About Scotland! A+++++++ Secret Santa, would receive from again.

    But that's not all...

    [​IMG]

    Oh my. What is this? Some sort of musical instrument?

    [​IMG]

    It is! It is! And what sounds it makes. I should make a little song for my Santa, and then apologize for it.

    Oh, but there's one more thing...

    [​IMG]

    Batteries! Not just any batteries, either, but batteries from the Netherlands. So they are probably cold and speak Dutch. If batteries could speak, of course, which they don't. Or do they?

    If not for the fact that I ran this, I wouldn't know who sent to me. But I did run this, so I do know. Thank you, Zion Ravescene, for the excellent gifts! :D

    I look forward to seeing what the rest of you got!

    This is the lovely gift bag that's been sitting on my cabinet, taunting me. First I was super happy to get a card, because I save those the way other people save photos.

    [​IMG]

    And a funny card, too! My Secret Santa has a good sense of humor. :lol:

    [​IMG]

    Chocolate! And not just any chocolate, fair-trade holiday chocolate. This Secret Santa knows the way to my heart. :adore:

    [​IMG]

    But wait, there's more! And it looks like someone wants to help me open it.

    [​IMG]

    They smell amazing! I feel prettier already. I love body butter and sugar scrubs.

    [​IMG]

    And it looks like Comet decided the bag was his present. Thanks Captain Kathryn, you're wonderful! I don't know how you managed to turn my vague list into such a perfect present. Merry Christmas everyone! :)

    And knitting needles.

    I love it! My favorite hobby, color and it was in the size I needed!! :D And the best thing about it that it was handmade by Spot's Meow.

    Thank you again. :-D
