MISSION: Santa's Mission

Recommended Posts

I just have to brag I got a very, very wonderful Christmas package and it was delivered on Christmas day. His name is Josiah Scott Gibson and he is my first grandson. :)

 

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas.

 

Ahhh, the best gift of all, the miracle of life!

 

Congratulations, Fossillady, enjoy Josiah and the pleasure that is a grandchild!

Today I opened my Santa mission from Hollora. In the box were three beautiful geocoins (I especialle love the celtic one!), a cute travelpenguin and two very nice pathtags!!!!!!! I also received christmas theme decorated oven gloves and kitchen towel (will come in handy at the yearly christmas family diner :-), christmas decorations and a deocrated sanddollar. I had never seen or read about a sand dollar before so this was very special. I think we've got similar things on the beach here in the Netherlands, but with a different shape and without the nice pattern. Now I also know were the sandollar geocoin of team Sanddollar comes from :-)

 

Hollora, thank you very much for all the coins and pathtags and the other christmas gifts! This was my first mission to perticipate in and I enjoyed it very much!

 

Here is a photo of all the unpacked presents:

The cats helped unpacking, they enjoyed the wrapping paper with the cats on it ;-)

After my own Santa mission it was time to open the pets mission as well. Inside we found a lot of cat toys. The cats love them!! They always like new sorts of toys and these toys you cannot get in the Netherlands :-) They've played with their new toys all day. Right now the toys are all over the living room and underneath the chairs and the cats are sleeping, they are exhausted :blink:

 

contents of tthe mission:

Thank you Neko- Chan of Maldar for all the toys and of course for the geocoin '10 commendments of geocaching' (I've never seen such a big and heavy coin before!) :)

We had a great time opening our incoming missions on Christmas Day. Thanks to all our Secret Santas - the packages you sent were absolutely great!

Youngest GeoKid is looking forward to tasting all those flavours of Jelly Belly beans. Thanks to Team Fehling's Courtney for sending so many Christmas surprises.

 

3143910335_8ea6db1af8.jpg

Oldest GeoKid's package came all the way from Australia. Thanks very much for sending a geocoin from our "seeking list"!

 

3144735618_5748fa3fab.jpg

Mrs. GeoKs' parcel including lots of geocoins, her first ever travel buddy and a rock! But it's a very special rock: a Keokuk Geode, which is just perfect for someone who loves earthcaching as much as she does. THANKS!

 

We'd also like to say THANK YOU to Butterfly Lady for doing such an excellent job organizing and running this mission. Bless you!

...some mix that smelled spicy and Christmasy, a snowman, and a tasty drink recipe.

 

I'm really glad you enjoyed it, it was a pleasure collecting the bits and pieces for it! God Jul is Swedish for Merry Christmas and pronounced 'goo yule,' the d isn't exactly silent, it's just normally not said since we say it somewhat fast ;).

 

The drink mix goes with the spicy mix that you got. The drink is called glögg (gluhhgg) and it's very delicious and traditional for our Christmas celebrations. It's yummy! I hope you get to make it and that you enjoy it!

 

Merry Christmas, all!

 

Naomi :D

For the record, still nothing here.

 

I guess this has been lost in the post now that it's been more than a month since it was sent. Thanks to whoever it was who sent it - it's the thought that counts of course and I'm sure you put a lot of thought into what went into the package.

:D Val's Santa Mission is probably a lost cause as well. She was giving the benifet of the doubt maybe receiving it by New Years. No Such Luck.

I wouldn't give up on missing missions just yet even if they were sent on the 10/11 deadline if they were sent Surface Mail and not AirMail they could still be enroute

Ditto on that - I'm seeing several arriving late.

I guess we inundated the postal system with all those missions - they just could not keep up.

 

Home at the end of next week - will update then.

Now this is us - sorry Bambography's home for Christmas!!

 

:P:unsure::lol:

Thank you very much to our Secret Santa, I wish we could have thanked them directly, but the parcel came from 'The North Pole - Alaska' ( :ph34r: although the postmark said Abbotstown, PA)

So whoever you are

 

:lol::lol: THANK YOU :):)

 

We found a lovely Christmas Stocking inside the box and waited until to look inside.

 

It's a lovely coin for a good cause, thank you, and also for the dog & cat magnets. which included both Cassie & Misty, our cat, in the mission.

 

Thanks again and also to Butterfly Lady for organising everything.

Chananda - I'm missing quite a few packages that were sent around the same time. I would love to know what has happened - but whatever it is, it's quite disappointing for everyone concerned. But thankyou for sending a package, even though it didn't reach me :)

Tristin hasn't got his mission yet but if it does not arrive, please do not send another package. There is no need to spend the extra money to do so. The one thing my dogs do not lack for is treats, toys and love :unsure: They'll never know anyhow, so thank you for the thought anyhow, myself and my dogs receive alot of special packages throughout the year anyhow.

oops...come to find us this is not Val's Santa Mission :unsure: it was the after Christmas Regifting/Clearance Sale Mission...so hope Butterfly lady can email and let us know if she contact who was supposed to fullfill their mission and didnt...it is diappointing when ones take on missions and do not fulfill them, it sure ruins it for the recipient that participates and doesnt get one, sure takes the fun out of it. We have heard that people dont take part in missions because of it.

Look what was waiting for me when I got home from my summer caching trip.

WSR - you are way too generous!

 

Hopefully I will find time today to update the lists...

But only if it is not too hot - between 30 and 34 degrees here in the last two days!

(86 to 93 Farenheit for those still using the old imperial systems)

 

Out to buy another fan for my office, hopefully. If there are any left in the shops.

 

HAPPY NEW CACHING YEAR TO YOU ALL

Just as I thought all my missions were complete (except for one for RadioNut50 here, not arrived)

 

In comes another gift....

Chur already has sent a mission to me, but decided to send another....

Some yummy items, plus the Town Musicians of Bremen story and geocoin.

I have to admit....

I'm having a spot of trouble....

I can't place this profile against the mission database.

Have you changed user name?

 

I did have Bambography down for an adult mission, but I just can't find Cassie's Crusaders in the list.

What am I missing??

Your sender had three missions to send - 2 have made it to the recipient.

So I think it is more a case of the postal system letting this one down.

Sadly....

 

Something is being sorted out.... But it will be another two weeks....

A late Santa mission
