Package Received: Dec 20: I hear bruchino's package has arrived today too...more on that later today!

 

Today a big box from the US of A arrived and unpacking it was like having a second (or actually first) Christmas Day! Inside there were a sweet Christmas card, lots of holiday candies, a lot of gorgeous Christmas decorations (I LOVE the snowman hanger!), a great headlight for nightcaching! and a beautiful set of scarf, hat and gloves with leopard print. PLUS three amazing geocoins! But pictures speak louder than words (sporry for the poor quality):

A big thanks from our family to Guinea Gal who sent us a fabulous package. It contained 2 cool coins, 3 pathtags (which we don't have any yet), and a dog trackable. Plus, assorted goodies including Christmas pencils, a cool compass, a lanyard, dog ornament, and geocaching tattoos! Our 6-year-old cacher loves those tattoos! Our geodog, Brutus, can't wait to have his picture taken on our next caching adventure to put into the ornament. This is the first year that we have done geocoin exchanges and we've had a great time!

 

Here's a picture (hope that I did it right!):

A TB tag....ditto...

And a 'GOD JUL 2011-MERRY CHRISTMAS' coin... sparkly and BEAUTIFUL!!!

(oh, and some chocolates...which barely survived the whole opening process)

:P:omnomnom:

A big thanks to Scott!

Well, it's a week past deadline, so I guess it's time to state where everyone is at.

 

as best as I can tell based on confirmations on the thread of sent packages, or received packages...everyone has sent their package except for a adult/child combo.

 

I'm going to send one more email tonight and if I don't get a reply I'll post them in the thread.

 

Can the following people confirm whether or not they have received a package? Some I know won't have gotten them yet based on sent dates, but I figure I'll put everyone on the list. Either send me an email on my account or post here. either is fine with me.

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.

I uploaded my pic to photobucket, copied the source string (hover over the photo to get it), and used the insert image icon in the message toolbar to add it here. I'm not sure if geocaching.com or photobucket did the resizing. Hope that helps!

They may have been sent, but I have NO idea as they are not responding to the ton of emails and forum messages I have sent.

 

Their packages were to be sent to LewisClan77 and clarkbowman. I will continue to get a hold of them to see what is going on with their packages.

My 10 year old received her package and was super thrilled with it. I am not sure of the Geo-ID of the person that sent it, but the package came from Germany. She wrote the following note:

 

Thank you so much for my package. I was really happy with it! I really liked the different kinds of chocolate and coins, even the teddy bear, log books, caches and snowglobe. The one reason I really liked the chocolate is because it was from Germany. It was super yummy! The note was cute and my dad used a translator application to read what it said. Thanks again for the amazing package.

I do not mind if I have to wait a little bit longer. It'll be Christmas all over again!

actually clarkbowman, there is Joy. I got confirmation that WebXII and company did in fact send their packages out on the 16th, but they have to cross the pond, so it may be a bit late.

Time to post. I received a great package from sheltiedogshowlover, Kaylee, Luke Leia & Dawn!

 

SANY0281-1.jpg

 

Just like at the shelter I was adopted from does, the little decorations just above the christmas card indicate things like blankets, or paper towels, garbage bags, cleaning supplies, ect., had been donated by these wonderful doggies and their pet, to the Lollipop Farm (a local humane society. Another donation was also made to the happy tails rescue in Kathy's memory. I think drneal liked this present the most of all.

 

the coins were a signature coin from sheltiedogshowlover, 2 good dog blessing rings (one for me and one for myheine,) and a 2008 christmas snow globe.

 

SANY0282-1.jpg

 

I appreciate the thought that went into this mission. I would also like to thank Ashallond for putting the mission together.

Received a wonderful package today from grodan & fiabus - wow, what goodies! The family gathered around while Amoolia gleefully handed me each little package, wondering which ones she could open :)

 

Thanks for all the wonderful presents - some lovely coins, Christmas ornaments, tasty tidbits, and cow critters. Also thanks for remembering my little (and not so little) ones :)

Still nothing from WebXII - which is disappointing - RadioNut50's outgoing mission was to this person, in Portugal.

Christmas came, Christmas now past.

But, as bad things happen from time to time, we can only assume WebXII has no internet access.

Patrick (pat1609) received a large green package from Sweden - in fact it was almost the largest package under the Christmas tree :D . When he opened it on Christmas eve, he found lots of sweets and a little moose and some other things including several very beautiful coins. He was very happy.

Firstly, I must apologise to Ashallond and everyone, as shortly after I joined this mission, I was *shock horror* banned from Groundspeak forums! My crime? A signature line that I have had for between three and four YEARS stating that I leave shiny round items with a hole in them and a number on the back, logable on another site in geocaches. Apparently, they are Groundspeak competitors ... who knew?

 

I note that the package I sent to Sweden was received and the package I received from Pennsylvania has arrived. Unfortunately, my street address was missing from the package and it had just my town on, so the Post Office, although it took them a little time, managed to find me! :laughing:

 

I received lots of chocolate, :omnomnom: a Christmas decoration :santa: and three lovely coins, my favourite of course is the Laval k9 one :) :) :)

Thank you very much Secret Santa, and many thanks to Ashallond for patience with my banning predicament.
