Happy to report that I have received both of my missions and missions sent are received. Apologies for the lateness of my replies, a last minute trip to Budapest has ment I am not at home to take receipt of the coins but Shirl assures me they are both nice coins (thank you). I will upload pictures when I am back in the UK. Happy holidays to all. M0zez

We received our first Christmas Countdown coin yesterday! Thanks very much to Mollyjak in Wales for sending an absolutely beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park geocoin. Since this is our first mission we're really excited to receive such a lovely coin, and it will always be one of our favorites in our collection. The night before it arrived we joked that maybe we'd take a camping trip to wherever our first Mission coin came from, but at the time we were thinking maybe Utah, Maine, or Ontario <_<. Thanks Mollyjak for the great Christmas gift, thanks to Butterfly_lady for organizing this mission, and we wish all of you a very Merry Christmas.

Well I wanted to be able to unpack at least one of my missions at the 25th of December. In Germany, we open our gifts already at chrismas eve, so it was nice to still have something to anticipate for the "morning after" :unsure:

This is my penguin mission under the christmas tree (the last survivor):

And here are the contents:

c124d00e-24fc-4b74-a037-31dbf07d5759.jpg

A wonderful Shropshire Way Coin (still something to look forward to: reading something on the shropshire way and what kind of bird of prey is on the coin, and why does this belong to Shropshire... I like to learn something about other areas, especially if I got some item from there :laughing: )

I like this combination of gold, black an white, it's really beautiful! And I like the worldcaching-Pin, too! The slogan "same planet, different wold" expresses exacly what I felt when I first discovered Geocaching :anibad: suddenly, my quiet little hometown became a city full of treasures and riddles!

And I like the card and the little sheep clip :)

Thank you so much, Croft House Cachers, I wish you a merry chistmas and all the best for the next year!

:laughing::anitongue: Woo Hoo today I received my second mission all the way from Texas via IRAN!!!! (yup you read it right the envelope has a stamp on it saying MISSENT TO IRAN) (shame it wasnt tracked thats a fair few miles).

It is a beautiful coin a Gold Star Coin commemorating those who have given their lives for us, it is like a small gold ingot with military insignia on it and inscribed All Gave Some Some Gave All.

Thank you so much to The Bremeister & Family for this lovely coin.

Will try and get a photo up of both my missions asap but am having problems figuring out how to do it.

A big thank you to Butterfly Lady for all her hard work.

 

A HAPPY & PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR TO EVERYBODY

What is a redemption card :rolleyes::) ?

a redemption card.... it replaced a torn mailer , that came with nothing in it, as the contents were lost/stolen during its travels, so she sent me this to be nice and redemed my mission for me,,thank you again for your big heart butterfly lady!!! B)

Our 2nd penguin mission came with an extra delivery to our holiday address. (we are on a holiday for a week and my husband arrived some days later and brought the mail with him)

Thank you very much secret penguin person.

A card with a penguin hiding under a tophat and a very nice coin of the USA, colored with the flags and lines for all the states. We really like this coin. Thanks penguins

Thanks to Brucie and Weezy from the UK for the lovely park coin (a big one!) and the colorado benchmark. I didn't have either of those and they are a nice addition to my growing collection. Everything arrived safe and sound before Christmas...just been too busy with the holidays to post a thank you!!

still wondering if our other one ever made it? :blink:

Did you have our name? We're still eagerly waiting for our second Christmas card and coin. The other day a coin arrived and I got all excited, until I opened the envelope and found it was just one I'd purchased. I can't believe I was disappointed :).

 

No - yours has been sent by someone else....

From the US - some regret that it may be lost as it should be there by now...

The mail system has let this mission down somewhat.

SO, LET ME START ......BY TURNING OFF THE CAPS....LOL.....

 

by saying todays mail was AWSOME!!!! and to find out what all was in my mail youll have to goto the mailbox thread when I get done here!! It will be a hard to beat day for awhile!

 

so now Im so excited I could do jumping jacks all the way to China and back!!lol here's why

 

I run out to get the mail thinking I was gonna get a wooden nickle or 2..and theres a yellow mailer with some peng. stickers NO RETURN ADDY-bb35fecb-670c-40e7-abb9-84035e6b2cde.jpgI start to think this may be a regift mission from Robets thread, so I open it and find 0e1b4bd1-5ef5-4455-ae6d-ec2e56970ac0.jpg1 card and 3 wrapped packs,,,right away I get butterflys, like a lil kid..ha ha

 

so I opened the card,, more pengs and something that says"frohliche weihnachten" so i promptly looked it up and i found this,article

so i took it was Merry Christmas but wanted to be sure-- then I remembered a coin that butterfly lady sent me that had merry christmas in every lang,,written on it- so i looked and yep that what it means!!Merry Christmas!! so the card was signed with an x x x and a :D,, so now I gotta do some reaserch,,lol

 

so I decide to open one of the lil ones it was a bit heavy,, and PooooOOOOWWWW!!!! THERE IT WAS........7fd59d58-6def-414a-aa77-d6cdd9445cfe.jpgMY NEW Scavok Tengwar NAWWAL Geocoin!!!! yeeeesssssss!!!! I reeped!!! Cass looked at me funny and I explained this was MY FAV. coin!!! and I cant believe I have one!! she agreed it was a nice coin. ,, Ive seen alot of lists and never saw a trader or a sale for one,, so I figured this coin was on my-- "keep dreaming-list"

Quick someone pinch me!!! is my coin still here?? lol

 

I asked Cass if she wanted to open one but she was content waching me--so I opened the next one,, and started to laugh,, and sat back so she couldent see,, and I said this ones yours- she said the x files coin!!!(ok we wont tell her its the g files) she likes it!! considering shes not into coins a whole lot that says alot!! shes coming around,,just slower then most,, :angry:

 

the bigger one,, is a spice to make a german-wine drink called "Gluhwein" I must say I havent experenced much customs from other places so I am eager to make this and see what Its all about- and will probably reaserch about it to find out the best ways to make it- and with what wines and some for the kid called "kinder punsch" using orange and apple juice,, and it smells great!!!

 

0dbf6fc8-331c-4b90-86d2-977d4ffc61fc.jpg

 

 

This was super!! IM FLOORED! I WISH I KNEW WHO SENT IT ??? sending me 2 of my seeking coins and I cant even thank you or I guess I can but I dont know who Im thanking...?

 

well... for now,THANK YOU VERY MUCH!, this will have to do,, untill I find you!! he he he!!

 

oh and p.s the card said it was for the peng mission,,
