Important Secret Santa Soiree Info



Short and sweet today...

First I have to say Thank You to the 'ying to my yang'... Amy for covering for me in my absence.

A quick SSS update.... 75 people still need to email us a delivery confirmation and with only 4 days until the shipping deadline, it's getting down to the wire...

If you have received your gift and blogged about it PLEASE sign the linky below so we can visit and see all your goodies. Please be sure you link the Post where you blogged about receiving your gift NOT a direct link to your blog.

I will be out visiting all the Secret Santa participants today to say Hi and spread some Holiday Cheer

My mom sent this to me in an email-I thought it was too funny and had to share it...

One day my mother was out and my dad was in charge of me. I was maybe 3 years old, and someone had given me a little 'tea set' as a gift. It was one of my favorite toys. Daddy was in the living room engrossed in the evening news when I brought him a little cup of 'tea', which was just water. After several cups of tea and lots of praise for such yummy tea, my Mom came home. My Dad made her sit quietly in another room, so mom could watch me bring dad the cup of tea, because I was so cute.
Mom waited, and sure enough, I came walking down the hall with a cup of tea for Daddy. Mom watches dad drink from the tea cup.
Then she says, (as only a mother would know... :) 'Did it ever occur to you that the only place she can reach to get water is the toilet?

And a couple snowman cartoons that my sister sent to me











My confession for today: Abby made the NEIMAN-MARCUS Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe last night and I am happy to report I only ate 1 cookie! Goodness they are good!

P.S.
if the linky doesn't show up bare with me and I will have it added soon

    I have faith in people that they will get on the ball and send out their SSS gifts. We have received many DC #'s in the last 2 days and more and more people will be getting their gifts is the mail soon. Can't wait to see everyone's goodies. I have been hopping around the Mr. Linky checking it all out.

  27. I'm sorry people are being mean! I don't know what's going on but I'm sorry that it stresses you out. I'm even sorrier that I waited until the last minute to tell you my plan. I didn't mean to be a stresser! I heart you both and my heart goes out to you girlie! You guys deserve a cocktail hour on us, this year!

    happy almost birthday!

  29. So sorry to read about the drama associated with your Secret Santa, Georgie. This looks like the first post that I could add a comment on, so I am doing so.

    Terrible when things do not work out as planned. Hopefully, it will not ruin your enjoyment of the holiday season. You organized a wonderful thing here.
