Yay!
Yay, I am so glad you finally received the box! USPS was supposed to deliver it by Friday, but they took a couple extra days to get it to you. I am so, so happy that you like everything...it was fun shopping for you, especially searching for the most unique SpongeBob ornament I could find! And those Christmas socks...oh, my gosh, so cute...I was tempted to keep a pair for myself!

I am glad to hear I was able to help out with having a nice Christmas decoration hanging around. I hope your husband is healing quickly from his surgery and getting stronger each day. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Suzanne

P.S. Is the Hank from Finding Dory gift a sticker or a mouse pad??

xs: Finding Dory "Hank" Sticker
s: 2 pairs of Christmas socks, I love them! I can never have enough holiday socks!
m: Mango Sugar Scrub for my hooves, can't wait until morning to slather it on in the shower!
l: What a HOOT! A SpongeBob Squarepants Lunch Box Ornament! This is to die for!! It is hanging on our tree. I just LOVE It and it was wrapped in SpongeBob paper! Too cool.
xl: OK, I live in Oregon, it rains here like EVERY day and do I have an umbrella? NO. When I was younger, I just ran to get out of it...now, my running days are numbered I got the most beautiful Totes umbrella with colorful raindrops all over it and, I am in luck, its going to rain all week, wait all month, wait all next year. I will use it constantly.

And for extras, geez, a large mug stuffed to overflowing with hot chocolate, gonna make a cup as soon as I get through posting my loot!
An adult coloring book, so excited to fill my downtime with this fun book. Well, when I am not entering sweeps, of course!
Mascara! I can now toss my old tube, maybe that pesky eye infection will go away. Can't wait. Kidding! haha
Tweezers! YES! For those strays you feel at work and have nothing to attack them with!
Lipgloss/Lipstick duo, in a great pinky shade, can't wait to put some color on my face!
A very cute stuffed penguin, sitting under the tree as we speak!
A very nice large Merry Christmas Wishes hanging sign. I didn't decorate this year, as my DH had hip replacement surgery a couple days before Thanksgiving and all our decorations are in the attic and I ain't going up there! (I did buy a fake decorated tree though. So, this beautiful sign will have front and center attention around here. Whew! I feel so spoiled and lucky to have Suzanne772 as my swap buddy. Everything was wrapped so nice and I really am appreciative at your shopping prowess and efforts. Thank you. A very Merry Christmas to you! Vickie (viclen1954)

I thought Hank was a sticker, but now that you mention it, it IS a mouse pad! Woo Hoo! I really had no idea what it was geez. Truly, you really accomplished a shopping, wrapping and shipping coup! All road traffic was closed due to snow and ice in the Gorge, which is a main highway into Oregon from the East. No cars or trucks were allowed to travel from last Friday until Sunday. DH is getting around good, finally ditched his cane and ready to ride his Harley, just a tad too cold right now. Again, thank you so much, Suzanne. Merry Christmas!

I received my box today!! Thank you EE7251. I apologize now, I am going to wait until Christmas morning to open my gifts. I will either post what I got on Christmas night or it might be the next day at the latest because I'm going to head out of town Christmas day after gifts are opened.

Here is a picture of my lovely wrapped gifts:

Wow, just opened my package from Aunt Putz. Great box.

XS. winter spice tea. never tried this and looking forward to it.
S. Jelly belly jelly beans. yummy
M. santa oven mitt and pot holders. I needed some of these badly.
L. 4 pairs of holiday socks. So cute.
XL. New England open house cookbook. I collect cookbooks and this is one I've never seen.

extras:

Thank you very much. Luckily for me, the lady at the Post office knows who I am as she hadn't had a chance to put the package slips in the boxes yet. When I said I was hoping to see a package, she let me know it had arrived. I'm glad as I was leaving town for a week and wasn't looking forward to having to wait.

Merry Christmas.
