Parcel Praise!!!!! Parcel Praise!!!!

This is a little late but wanted to express the thrill I and my mailbox experienced when we received my Secret Santa package!!! (It WAS here before Christmas--I just got a little busy--sorry) It was from DesertHen!! I had to run right over to her blog and learn more about her--she and I are both in the middle of nowhere--just in different states. She sounds like so much fun--I am looking forward to getting to know her and stalking her --of course! Here is picture of the fabulous goodies I received!


How kind of her!! And how in the world did she know that I have a "thing" for chocolate with krispies in it??!! And lovely things to keep my toes and fingers warm--yeah! I also didn't realize that anybody but my family knew about my obsessive note writing--such a cute pad and pen! AND I don't even try to buy cute Christmas towels because inevitably my husband or children use them for something they shouldn't--so these cheered up my little kitchen fabulously! Isn't that a cute stocking and an ornament for my pear tree. Sorry--was just going for that 12 days thing. Thank you sooo much DeseretHen--and Redhoodoos--for organizing it all--fun stuff!!

And before I go--a big THANK YOU to my buddy Annie--over at carot tops are green--for the absolutely incredible calendar completely full of pictures of her son, Brett!! I have been begging for months for a Priority Mail Box full of Brett--this is the next best thing--thanx girlfriend--for feeding my addiction!

Our Christmas was Merry except for the glitches we experienced getting my husband back to work with all the delays Alaskan Airlines experienced. Natty is home and Tae will be here on the 30th. What a treat--all my kidlets--HOME--definitely a tender mercy from my Heavenly Father. Hope all is well with you and yours--here's to a very BRIGHT New Year!

Glad your family had a merry day! Luvpilot made it home late Christmas Eve. He always hates flying this time of year. Sorry your hubby had problems too.

Happy Christmases are the best. With our mixed family, we hope for the best and take what we get as a blessing. Usually there are ex glitches, but I rant and rave and we roll with it!! GOD watches this situation after all, there must be some reason!!

Finally, I have a friend who doesn't wear makeup either! I was beginning to feel like a freak show! I wish I could wear something but seriously my skin hates it. It saves me money so I'm okay with it. Yes, my furnace is being nasty. It is an intermittent problem just like the car was so we're crossing our fingers and hoping we can make it into the end of January to get it fixed, seriously no money to do it now. I'm so glad you stopped by. Oh, I just remembered. The way I got the doll done was I told Brianna in November she had to call before she came over until after Christmas bz I wanted her to be surprised too! My husband goes to bed so early (6:00 p.m.) that all I have is time and I need to do something to stay awake!! Jill's was mostly done when she thought I was doing it for myself so it wasn't a secret until it came to binding it. I wanted him to propose to her first before I gave it to her! How selfish is that of me? Have a great day and thanks again for stopping by. Oh, love the secret Santa gift too! I'm really leaving now...LOL!! Cindy

Hello there Lisaloo....I'm so happy you are enjoying your goodies. I love all of those things myself and just kept thinking that surely the person I got had to be like me....and you are so right, we do have a lot in common. I don't think it is spooky at all that we have that much in common...I love knowing that is someone else out there like me.....=) I so look forward to getting to know you better and stalking your blog on a regular basis now....=D Great Big Hugs to Red over at Redhoodoos for putting together such a wonderful idea like the Secret Santas and for brining new bloggy friends into our lives! Enjoy all of the time with your kiddos...have fun. My son had to go back to work yesterday at the mine he works for...but we were able to spend the day with him on Christmas despite all of the snow we had and how it changed our plans. I think we are going sledding today...haven't done that in years! Have a lovely weekend....=)
