Oh my gosh you’re right. I looked back in my posts and I had no idea it had been so long since I’ve posted. We have been up to SO much this year. Look forward to a LONG “where has Phoenix and Gilbert been all year” post in the next couple days when I can get a chance to sit down and type up a novel :lol:
Seriously. This year has been wild.

Kringle assignments have just be emailed.
We have a very small pool of people participating this year, but I did my best to match everyone with someone they have not sent a gift to before.
Please let me know if you did not receive yours, or if you see any issues. Thanks everyone!

Thank you galopp for my new tree ornaments!!! They are so cute and are perfect for my homely little tree. Now let’s see if I can figure out how to attach a picture.

I love the chapsticks too :)

I received my cram packed box with a delightful assortment of treats from Sue. My dogs enjoyed their treats. I think I will try the hot chocolate and marshmallow in Tandem. Yum. I am especially looking forward to the apple butter. Thank you very much. Oh my gosh, AND a smartpak gift card. Thank you so much!!

You know...the horses were so thrilled with those delicious treats, nothing else was required or expected!

That said, I just got the most perfect saddle pad, exactly the color I was planning on buying to show Rudy in this summer! Thank you sooo much, I can't wait to show it off. Also, my feet will be so comfy, cozy in those merino socks. Thank you again Blob...you rock :D 8-)
