  1. I can't sign in for her right now - but AndKaylee recieved her gift this week. Pictures to follow- thanks for everything - she loves it!
  2. Dug some tracking info out of the truck. Our package to Canada (actually, that would be AndKaylee's package to Canada) arrived at a Canadian Facility ob Thursday. Hopefully it will be picked up by Canadian post very soon to head to its destination. The package going to the UK departed an airport in Heathrow on Thursday and is showing In Transit. Hopefully it will get to the recipient very soon!!
  3. No change in our status. The two packages we sent out of the country have not made it to their destination (darn), and the one for AndKaylee is still not here. We *did* open our missions hiding under the tree today! One from Hawaii for Mike and one from BC for Juli! Thanks, and hopefully our outstanding missions will be complete by the new year ?
  4. Oye! We are SOOOoooo far behind!!! Hopefully the love that was put into our mission will counteract our business (in case they are late to arrive) Mission 1: Mike Sent my info to Laval K-9: 15 November Name received from Laval K-9: 28 NovemberSent my gift: 11 DecemberMy gift arrived at destination:I received a gift: 7 December (tucked into the tree) Mission 2: Juli Sent my info to Laval K-9: 15 NovemberName received from Laval K-9: 28 NovemberSent my gift: 11 DecemberMy gift arrived at destination:I received a gift: 10 December

  6. We are signing up for 2 missions under this account (then a 3rd one under our 3 Year Old's account - stay tuned for that post). Joyeux Noël!!

  7. Opened our missions this morning, but didnt get a chance to post until now. Wanted to make sure I post some gratitude and some pics, as it is always my favorite part of the thread to scroll through. Kaylee loved her treats and the sweet handwritten letter from Peep of LiveAnimals (I think I got the nicknames right). She also has a special connection to every stuffy she has (and that's a lot), so I'm sure the snoopy will be treasured for a long time. Mike loved the fancy box from Scotland, and cant wait to share the sweet treats with Juli. It must have taken forever to wrap every single gift like you did! Bravo! Juli was floored by the box from Scrablehounds (we all were). The fact that it was LOADED with goodies was icing on the amazing cake. Thank you so much! I thought we stepped up our Joyeux Noël exchange last year, but the thought and effort put into the treasures we recieved this year was truly inspiring. Thank you Claire and everyone who participated this year. Joyeux Noël and Dieu vous protège!
  8. Third mission arrived today (for Kaylee). All three of us have missions to open on Christmas! Hooray!

  9. We recieved our second mission on Thursday or Friday - cant remember now. It's been a very long week/weekend. Name on the package says it is Mike's mission - so we are just waiting on Kaylee's. Merry Christmas everyone! Hopefully the third mission makes it here before the big day! Gonna hold off on opening them until the 25th.

  14. Kaylees just showed up today! We havent opened it yet, but will post pics after we do.
  15. Okay, here is where we are. I lost my tracking info for the ones we sent out, but I do see one of our gifts arrived at its destination! Hopefully the other is going to be delivered soon! We received one of our two missions, and we are waiting until Christmas to open it! Hooray! Based on the name on the outside of the envelope, I assume it's the one for MikeAndJuli. Hopefully AndKaylee's isn't far behind!

  16. We signed up for two missions, one for us (MikeAndJuli) and one for our 22 month old daughter (AndKaylee). We hope that in the next few years she gets excited about this cool tradition and can look back at the cool gifts she's received from it.

  17. Our final mission arrived tonight! First, thank you to everyone for the gifts! This is such a cool thing to participate in, and it cant exist without the help of the community! Of course, a big thank you to Laval K-9 for organizing another fantastic mission. It is fun watching everything update here! Speaking of update: our final mission arrived (addressed to Mike, so mystery solved -lol!)! We were very excited to see it was from Valerie, someone we've been following on Facebook for a few years now! The pictures were too big to post in the forums, and Im too lazy to resize. Here is a link to our facebook post: https://m.facebook.com/groups/287679991282216?view=permalink&id=1760881580628709
  18. First - the answer you seek is found a few posts above yours - Kaylee LOVES her addition to her already growing collection, and the beautiful card and envelope! The caligraphy is amazing, and it is definitely being saved in her collection of special memories. It reminds me of the quote that is on our 'United World' geocoin: "In the countries we live in there are many flags, different laws to follow, and borders separating our lands. But in the geocaching world we develop worldwide friendships, follow the same rules, and unite under one banner." Another update to follow tonight!
  19. Quick Update: We still havent recieved our third mission. Holiday postage times van be brutal! Juli thinks I got our names mixed up and she recieved one, but I didnt. Unfortunately I tossed the packaging from Sherminator, so I cant see if it is adressed to Juli or Mike (facepalm). On a possitive note: I dug out our post office reciepts, checked the tracking numbers, and all three of our missions have been delivered! Yay!!!

  20. Update again - We have received two missions (Mikeal's and Kaylee's). We opened them both, but we are waiting until all three show up to post pictures ;-). I lost my receipt to check tracking on the missions we sent out. If I find it I will update.

  21. Sorry for the delay - We had to wait a week to get coins from 6 miles away. Kinda Silly.... ANYWHO! Here is our update!

  23. Happy Almost-Halloween from a late lurker!!! We are already in the process of making Christmas cards (there are a lot of great people we need to send well-wishes too), and the question came up: will we need to make a couple extra cards for a 2017 Joyeux Noel Mission?
  24. Thanks for the nudge! We received our missions both in the same day! I can't find my tracking reciept for when the two we sent out got delivered... Thanks EVERYONE - this has been a blast!
