Wow!! I got an awesome gift from the Butterfly Lady. A Kiwi Christmas package with SEVEN coins. And Whittakers chocolate from New Zealand which was quickly taken by my daughter. Thankfully, I was able to hang onto it until I got a picture. Oh My Gosh!! That is the mother-load of gift exchanges.

That plastic box is the best for caching - has a double seal, and is made down-under!

Glad to see packagle 1 - the kiwi themed cache arrived much earlier than expected.

I received a nice package from Broiler-Todd it had a Christmas Stocking containing 3 geocoins(an 11-11-11 from Idaho, A World Diabetes day coin and a non trackable holiday 3 Muskateers? coin) as well as 2 boxes of votive candles (Pine and berry) and a matchstick cache container with a bison tube tucked inside.

 

Thank you Broiler-Todd. I am sooo happy there weren't any candy temptations inside!

dancingprincess has received her package and enjoyed opening it completely.

 

When she's awake, and I have time to get her 4 year old opinions of it, I'll post pictures and her comments. (the doll outfits went on to her two yellow teddy bears and went to sleep with her. yay!)

 

 

Please remember to confirm when you have sent out or received your package. Emails will be sent to everyone tomorrow as a further reminder.

The Geocoin store has a number of different colors in a different style.

 

The one you received was the club version.

I have traded both of mine away but I'm sure there are others that might be available thru the trading thread

Good Luck :)

Oh, I'm not the one that received the club version...boiler-todd did (congrats boiler todd on your nice mission). But, the club version is the one I've been looking for. I'm a member of GCC but wasn't when they were selling these and now they are sold out :( I'll go post it in the trading thread. Thanks TeamEccs21!

She got a very nice box and was actually allowed to open it right away. (I know...but I too was curious, shhh) There was this really nice Holidaystocking filled with nice and fun things, pens in different colours, a little horse that make horsesound (the favourite) two cache?containers, necklace and bracelet, erasers in santastyle, dito pencils, some Snoopythings, oh, and there were some coins too. She got an orange summer solstice coin, a 101010 geocoin (mardigras?) and a little geowoodstockbear. Thank you very much Amoolia!! HunnyBunny says you made her a very nice package and a very nice painting/drawing.

 

Thank you for hosting this.

Package sent: (SENDING SAT DEC 10)

Package received: Recieved!

I got a wonderful package in the mail from Dr. Neal for the sheltie pups! I opened a few items in the package that felt like they were for me and not the pups and then put the rest of the wrapped packages under the tree for them to open on Christmas morning. Here are a few of the wonderful items that were included, including the fantastic bernese mountain dog coin I was hoping to someday find! And that tick key I'm sure will come in handy. This year we had a dog come into a training class with 22 ticks on them! It's been a bad year for ticks.

 

Can't wait to see what else the puppers are going to get. If anyone has a problem with me waiting for them to open them we'll have an early christmas but it's so nice to have presents under the tree for the pups!

 

Thanks Drneal!

Thanks - this was a bit of a surprise mission to him, he's been busy looking after our NZ caching community, that I thought to sign up on his behalf, send out on his behalf, and surprise him with an incoming mission!

The Butterfly Lady gave me so many coins in this exchange. Reflecting on the Reason for the Season. "It is better to Give than Receive". If she doesn't mind, I will donate the "Discover Me Name Tag" GCC version to Southern_Angel. Just email me your snail mail address.

 

Merry Christmas! :santa:

HAPPY that this re-gifting is occurring.

I searched my coin collection for the 2nd one, but realised I have already donated it as a mystery prize at an event.

No - he has now opened it and discovered your caching name on the card.

I was not going to open it for him, while he was busy cleaning up.

He is thrilled, especially with the Harrison coin - he had one travelling, that is now MIA somewhere in the land of OZ.

Many thanks for such a thoughtful mission.

ok, I've got emails currently into two people who said they would get their packages out today, waiting on kdv to get that trade in, and then I've got two people who haven't replied back one way or another. I am going to follow up with them (and they are also adult/kid or adult/pet combos!) so will see if I can get any reply from them in a day or two.

 

Remember to PLEASE let the thread know when you receive a package.

My oldest daughter received her awesome package today and loved it. She received a throw blanket, Farkle game, nail polish, lip gloss, pencils, a cute card game, a Christmas ducky, and m&ms. She also received a couple of really cool coins and a travel tag. She was super happy and wants to send a huge thank you to DancingPrincess for such an awesome package! :)

Well, I've heard from everyone except an adult/kid combo and an adult/dog combo.

 

There's two more that are waiting on a coin to come in, but beyond that it appears that everything else is en route. except for the two aforementioned silent people. Hopefully they respond soon.
