Are we opening at a certain time? Mine hasn't arrived yet and the airport is socked in with over a foot of snow (unusual here!).

THANK YOU darkblue0729 for the Arbonne skin cream!! I have never tried Arbonne products but always wanted to, and I needed a new moisturizer since my skin has recently changed from oilier to drier - so thanks!

(I wasn't sure if we were supposed to wait to open them either, but I have no patience anyway - I opened the package the minute it arrived! )

Merry Christmas everyone! :

Ohhh, I never expected patience, so open away and post what you got!

Helen, I can spoil the surprise or we can see if she posts.

If your present is late, ladies, it might be from the snow. We have a foot here, with a nice layer of ice underneath.

Thank you littlehalo for all of the sweet goodies! The coffee soap works wonders, and the kitchen towel is very cute

Bundlefish Mama, I am so, so glad you liked your gift! IMHO, arbonne rocks! (and no I don't sell the stuff, lol)

Anywho, thanks a bunch Teff for putting all the work into organizing this whole thing. It was really neat getting a package for myself lol, I felt like a kid as I couldn't wait to open the darn thing when it arrived And thanks again, littlehalo!

You are welcome, all! This thread is the BEST thank you I could get!

Jen, your present "looks like it was left at the front door saturday." Your SS is worried that you didn't get it.

Hey mama! i was your secret santa!! I am so glad you love the book!! My boss wrote the chapter about babywearing in it!

I haven't gotten my gift.....unless the mama sent me something from Canada?! I got the OV pf's with a purple snappi I thought I had bought but I'm not 100% sure. So let me know if that was you secret santa!!

Thank you Bella Catalina for the beautiful bag! I used it on our trip back to the midwest for the holidays as a diaper bag and it was SO perfect!

Glad you like the longies, coyotemist!

Thank you JenInMpls for the amazing box I received a few days ago. I already privately emailed you, but wanted to say thanks publicly here. Thank you so much for all the clothes! I am still enjoying the lip balm and my son is still enjoying his big brother toy. : I'll be happy to wait a while to use the mama cloth you sent though!

Teffer, it was a huge box of clothes! I was so surprised and ecstatic!! Some really cute stuff in there and almost everything is the right size and season for my babe. I feel so lucky to have gotten a box from Jen! :
