Advent Christmas Mission

Recommended Posts

I haven't seen anything posted on here from my person either, not even a "Hey I want to join this mission"

I hope they got it since I mailed it 2 weeks ago and it was in country. No package for us either :laughing: Hoping for it to show up tomorrow.

I did have a few delays on getting some of my familys missions out due to some medical issues,

 

It will be worth the wait on your missions :?)

I can't wait for my parcel to arrive :laughing::rolleyes::rolleyes:

 

We have snow here and when it snows in the UK, everything grinds to a halt :laughing:

 

Parcel hasn't arrived yet but hopefully it will be soon.

 

May I suggest that all senders give their recipients their tracking numbers so at least it can take the guessing out of where their parcel is.

 

For those who are opening today, enjoy and may we have some pictures please

I'm having some creative thoughts on this one!

 

email sent- 10/19/10

name received- 10/31...I am on track on this one! :blink:

mission sent- 11/7 I hope the creativity is enjoyed :laughing:

mission received-

 

:huh: Nothing in my mailbox today....hopefully tomorow. I mailed our box on the 9th, my delivery confirmation shows that it was delivered on the 17th....perhaps we need a reminder to post when we receive our packages??? :rolleyes: .....or they didn't like my creativity? :lol:

 

Having received a mission package from you before usyoopers, I sincerely doubt anyone would be disappointed by what you send and/or your creativity!! :D

 

I sent mine weeks ago, but my recipient hasn't posted on here that they were part of the mission, so I am hoping they got it, but just dont post on the forums......or..... something :rolleyes:

 

It's the 1st December here, and no advent mission, but I will wait in hope until the 24th :laughing::lol:

Happy December 1st!

Not sure how we are supposed to share our Advent Missions (one post per day? all at once?), but hopefully this is what the mission organizer had in mind.

 

I will keep my fingers crossed that everyone who sends a mission receives one shortly, or by the 24th, as Cheesy Pigs so smartly observed!

so many missions not yet arrived.... and so few postings. Might be time for a nudge.

 

Way down here in New Zealand, I was surprised by my mission arriving on time! Thanks for the lovely chocolate crisp, shaped as a gingerbread man on day one....

 

Dec 2nd here now.... so off to find gift # 2.

 

Photos are taken and will be uploaded - but the progress photos might be missing edilble items (hee, hee, I'm enjoying this)

 

Just wish my sent mission arrived on time!

I'm not in the mission, but I think it would be a great Christmas Spirit Boost to see each days gifts getting posted!! Thank you for sharing.

Yeah show pictures of each day!

Uptill now I have to do with the internet pictures.

 

Really hope my mission arrived in the States. It was a kids mission, but I can not use the trackingnr because the number only works in Holland.

I am enjoying this too. IWhen it was time to prepare for this mission, I was struggling with the advent gifts for ourselves, so didn't join in with the mission as I was out of ideas & time. We have a wooden house for each child with drawers that get filled with one sweet for each day (have to find ones to fit in the tiny drawers, and that can get a bit boring.) You have given me an idea that on some days they might find a written clue to where a bigger parcel is hidden for them. Hopefully next year I can get organised in time to join in with the mission too!

 

Please keep posting the pics!

 

If you are still waiting on things to get posted out, how about if you post half today and the rest when the late arrival items get to you?

I don't know if this is completely true, but hasn't everyone so far given to the same person they received from? So maybe those of you who haven't received your mission could contact your person through their geocaching profile and ask gently if they have received a package from you and also if they sent a package to you and when because you are worried about the packages.

 

I am sure Mike would be doing this, but the last month has been a very rough health month for him.

I received my package safe and sound last week. It prompted me to decorate for christmas this year even though I won't be home. Sorry for not posting anything sooner, I didn't know I was supposed to.

 

I've already opened the first 2 gifts, love the coin and the candy is delicious. Just finishing a piece now :anitongue:

 

thanks again to River Cacher for hosting and Fossillady for thinking of me

 

Warm fuzzies to everyone!

We would really like to post what we opened yesterday and today...but still no package (today's mail already came) :anitongue:

We also have not received word that the package that we sent was received. It is frustrating my daughter to no end...she keeps asking if the person that we sent to likes her presents and when she will be receiving hers. My older one, unfortunately, has been disappointed on other missions arriving late or not at all, so she has not said anything and has been patient. I am sure that it will get here soon...but it is hard to explain to an impatient 8-year-old.

No word on ours being received and still no package for us either. I think I am as disapointed as your daughter. I put a bit of work into this mission with the thought that it would bring a smile or laugh to my recipient....it would be nice to know if it worked.

No...I was under the impression that, as the organizer of this mission, that he was following this thread (or, if he could not, then he made arrangements with someone else to do it for him). I will send an email since day 3 has come and gone with no package.

sorry if I sound testy...but my daughter was one of the folks that received ziplok bags and a coin for her Christmas mission last year...it is just frustrating when expectations are high...plus I feel like a HUGE whiner (which I hate) when I have to ask about this stuff.

River Cacher hasn't been online very much. He has been trying to follow this thread and do follow-up but has some major issues right now.

I don't like sounding testy or whiney either but a really big part of these missions for me is knowing that my recipient enjoyed what I sent. There are currently 3 missions going on, we have sent 5 missions, received one and heard that 2 have made it to their destinations, one is being waited to open I really don't know about the other....maybe they didn't like it??

Maybe we should have a pinned thread about mission etiquette???

Day THREE a micro cache container. It is smaller in diameter than the ones I am accustomed to. Very cool.

49d4715e-003a-4eb6-801a-437a3680d85e.jpg

I opened early today because it has been a disgusting day. Actually the day itself is beautiful, but the roads to my house are icky. UPS has made it through, but there is no other traffic because it is so slick with slush. Ten inches of snow melting, no plowing on the local roads. The main roads are clear and beautiful. I have a visitor dog who wants and needs lots of exercise and is hassling me about it! 109 pounds of unexercised dog is a whole lot of sighing!!

I know that Mike has been sick, so I doubt he has been following this thread. However, I don't think he should have to play hall monitor and make sure everyone follows the rules. We know what is expected of us when we sign up for a mission. I try to teach my son that Christmas isn't about presents & that if we get something then we get our mission. We have gotten my winter mission & my Christmas card mission & have really enjoyed them. If that's what we get then that's what we got. Merry Christmas to everyone! ;):anitongue:

You are right. No one should have to play hall monitor. But reality is that it is necessary because grown ups don't always behave responsibly and kids are often the victims. The little dragons have had several problem receiving missions and that just shouldn't happen.

 

Mike has looked at the thread and is trying to keep up. See post #102 on the 30th.

Well it seems my package has been sitting at the post office since Nov. 20th, they swear they put a note in my P.O. Box but since I was waiting I have been very careful about going thru the just mail before I dumped it. All is well and I got to open three present all at once, a new cache container (looks like a cupcake), chocolate and hazelnut wafers (already half gone) and pencils that are 13 years old, how cool. Pictures will follow. Thanks, nessker for the cool gifts. Happy Holidays to all.

Maybe people have gone to send their missions then realised how expensive it is to send internationally?

Oh, and for those in snow, today I tied tasted my first raspberry of the season - an ebony one, that I beat the birds to....

On goes the bird netting today. (that is, when it cools off enough to go outside again) Sunscreen applied.

For the moment no problem in hijacking with funny pictures.

For the on topic information we do not have much. We nearly all, are waiting.

Either for confirmation of receipt or incoming missions. ;)
