Secret Santa 2009

Recommended Posts

I received my Christmas mission Saturday. Oh my! TeamEccs21 was my Secret Santa and they did waayyy too much! I found a Sepp and Berta Tranquility from my seeking list! Oh my goodness.. it is the most beautiful coin I have ever seen! Thank you. They didn't stop there... TeamEccs21 also sent me their personal, a GCC poker chip, pathtags, a TB : -) , a MWGB lanyard, and a Christmas tag. Oh! A set of rooster coasters and a neat glass rooster filled with soup mix! It was so much. I laughed and cried at the same time. Thank you Secret Santas....

 

May your holidays be merry and bright.

Love,

Molly aka Chickahominy

So glad you liked it. We were a little concerned that the glass rooster wouldn't make it in one piece. Don't loose that gift tag, it's trackable as well.

 

Merry Christmas ans a Happy new year :antenna:

I am SO excited to receive such a beautifully decorated gift box from Sweden. My willpower is usually very strong, but is weakening rapidly and don't think I can hold out until Christmas. My husband said I looked like a little kid receiving their hearts desire when the post lady put the box in my hands. I won't look at the return name yet as I'm trying really really hard not to open, and as soon as I see who it's from, all bets are off. THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOOO MUCH

4. Package Received!: Yes!! HOLY MOLY!! Thank you Jonah from The Cache-A-Teers!!!

 

Dear Jonah from The Cache-A-Teers, you are amazing! What a find when we went to the mailbox today and found a lovely box all the way from Idaho!! Wow. We of course couldn't wait to rip in to the box and find out what was inside. When we did? Wowzee!! What a true treasure!

 

I've never seen nor expected so many coins! Weelow here in the pictures was happy to get some puzzles and the fun of presents wrapped was so cool! Each one of the coins individually wrapped is truly cool, way to have some patience on that one. We are saving the wrapped presents for Christmas Day, but I fear the treats won't make it much past tonight!

 

Truly outstanding. Amazing. Fantastic. Thank you so much.

Sincerely,

 

The GeeOCachers Family.

Sorry for the delay in updating my status - I had no idea I was even late saying I'd received my mission name! Well, better late than never, right?

 

Thank you very much to Delilah Blue, my secret santa this year, for putting together a wonderfully thoughtful package! It was a nice surprise to come home to last week, and I am really enjoying the chocolate goodies. And my coin: a Blarney Coin pathtag transporter! I am partial to all things Celtic, and so this coin was a perfect choice.

 

Thanks to Dave for organizing, and I hope everyone has a very, Merry Christmas this year! Happy caching in 2009!

Mission #2

1. Participating:Yes (10/31)

2. Received Name: Yes (11/2)

3. Mission Complete:Yes (12/8)

4. Package Received!:

 

When I got home tonight, a pair of boxes was sitting on the doorstep--one from my sister-in-law and another that looked suspiciously like a Secret Santa box. I opened it to confirm that that was what it was, but I think I'll wait a couple of days to open the presents. I know I won't be able to wait until Christmas, but this weekend will likely provide a bit of pre-Christmas joy! Pictures will follow.

To my secret santa ... a HUGE THANK YOU!

 

We received our package after a week of cold, rainy weather! I was on my way back into work when I spotted the postman bringing the box to the house. He asked if I would like to take it with me or if I would like him to put it at the front door. I told him I'd take it with me and continue on toward work. I didn't think much about the package, thinking it was for one of the kids, and placed it on the kitchen table when I finally returned home. When my daughter walked through the door she asked what I had received in the mail. Confused I told her the package was for either her or my son. Coming around the corner with the package she frowned at me and replied that it was for my wife and me! :anicute:

 

After confirming the package was indeed for us, I proceeded to wait for my wife to return from work. When she walked through the door she was stunned to realize we had received a package in the mail. Looking at the gift we then asked each other who we knew in Australia. When neither one of us could come up with an answer, we turned to our daughter and asked her if she knew who it was from. What was her response you may wonder ... "I have no clue who sent the package." (The little sneak may not have known WHO sent the package, but she knew WHY we had received it! :laughing: )

 

Has anyone guessed that the package was a suprise to us yet ???? :yikes:

 

When we opened it we were amazed to find postcards, geocoins, a stuffed animal, and a very pretty notepad! The Christmas Card simply said from Santa! The coins were beautiful and my wife really liked the notepad. No one in the house had ever seen these geocoins before, and we are honored to add them to our collection! The postcards are currently on the fridge, and the stuffed animal is sitting with the Christmas Card up on the mantel. We have never been to Australia and each gift was very much cherished! Thank you very much for the thought and effort you put into our gift!

 

We wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas! :surprise:

I came home from our Christmas Bird Count today to find TWO packages waiting for me. Both were from my secret Santas, and BOTH of them were beyond fantastic. It really warmed my heart to read the cards, open the presents (I can't wait...I'm terrible), and hold the fabulous coins - some of which I have been seeking since I found these twinkly, sparkly geocoins! I have no idea how my secret Santas found the coins they did, but both put a lot of thought into these missions and I am so happy to share pictures of these missions with the rest of the forum.

 

Thank you ever so much to my secret Santas - you know who you are! Thank you to Dave for organizing, and I hope everyone has safe and festive holidays AND new year! Happy caching and coining in 2010!

Heather's mission came today...but we have not opened it yet.

 

Brenda did open hers (finally), and the coins are now in the abyss that is her room (so no pictures). She received two coins and a Christmas card...a GCC cache hunters coin (she commented that it was funny to receive a coin with a picture of her back on it - plus her dad and sister), and a Beijing Observatory geocoin.

 

I'll post pictures of Heather and my missions later. When I find the camera.

:yikes::o:P:D We got a package today in the mail and we just knew it had to be the Secret Santa!

So what did we do? We opened it as soon as we got home of course!! We are so weak - we couldn't wait.

And we recognised the Secret Santa as the one and only JGYPSY33 from Idaho. haha Thanks JGYPSY33!!

We love the Smores. We are making them tonight for a treat. And the coins are all perfect. We had not heard about the football coin or the Beijing Observatory Geocoin - they are beautiful. The Cache Movers traveler is perfect and we will be placing that in our next cache hide for sure.

Here are some pictures of the package unwrapping. And KylieDog got into the action too - she was very curious.

Thanks so much Secret Santa (wink, wink). We hope you like what we sent you too.

Merry Christmas. :anicute:;):laughing::surprise:

My package was in my mailbox today, and I opened it because it had sounded like it was a smaller box inside wrapped, but it wasn't. So yay, early Christmas present for me.

 

Inside I got a coin from an event that had happened before I started caching, a pathtag with promise of another one later, and 2 coin proxies, one for the event coin that was sent, and one of another coin. The letter maybe mentioned a second coin, but I think it was referencing the pathtag and said coin by accident.

 

I also got a bag of coffee (mmm, coffee), a Disney vacations button, and a handful of plastic bags.

Thank you Secret Santa from Norway!

And two hours later, my mission was dropped off! It sure was colorful and festive :yikes: I have to say though, even though we received it directly from the delivery guy the chocolate was still liquid :laughing: ah, well.

Thank you Sinterklaas from the Netherlands! We are going to listen to the Dutch Xmas CD and see which songs we can identify then we'll give it to some Dutch friends of ours and share the spirit!

There are some items missing from the picture, claimed by Cinnabear and OptimusCache. OptimusCache didn't get a mission this year and was so sad. He's been asking to open prezzies for 3 days now and then we opened our missions in front of him, how mean! We'll share of course :anicute:

I'm so glad you liked your Christmas missions. I had fun putting mine together for you. The pictures of the kids reading the books made me smile. I will share those pics with my husband so he can see the joy these missions bring others. Maybe then he won't complain about mailing the packages for me! LOL!

 

Happy holidays to all!
