Secret Santa Reveal and Thank You Thread

I think most of us have done this as we went along, but for those who participated in our Secret Santa, go ahead and let everyone know who you bought for here. Also, we can never thank others enough, so we can use this thread as a place to formally thank our Secret Santas. Deelady, I hope you get your gift soon so that you will be able to share what you received with us!

Barbara

First, I would like to thank Stacy (Texasgirl) for the beautiful kitty musical figurine. It plays the cutest song, which goes perfectly with the little kitties trying to devise a way to get the goldfish from the fishbowl, "With a Little Bit of Luck!"

I felt so honored to be given Katie E to buy for. I had a specific thing in mind to give her, but I wasn't able to find it for her. What I wanted to find was a small porch swing with a picture frame in it, or a picture frame with a porch swing motif, for her to display a picture of her and Buck (because of their nights sitting in the porch swing together, looking at the stars and kitties, and sharing about their day and their life together). Since I couldn't find that, I used the clues she gave in her responses to the questions we were each asked, plus some of my own ideas. I am so glad that she was pleased with my choices.

Barbara

Yep, Barbara L was my Secret Santa and I love all my gifts. I hope to make the candies last until 2009. Everything else was perfect.

I was sattie's Secret Santa and I had a great time selecting and assembling her package. I really needed someone to pamper this Christmas since Buck is gone. I'll let her tell you what was in the box.

Miss Katie E was my Secret Santa. I was the recipient of some wonderful soup mugs (which is perfect for the season), and on each mug is a recipe for soup. Also included was a jar of dried legumes which turned out to be one of Buck's favorite soups. Thank you Katie for sharing that recipe with me, I just so happen to have a hamhock on hand!!!! :) Thanks Katie and I love you!

jpmcgrew (Jackie) sent me my gift - a beautiful jewelled horse that matches my decor wonderfully! Thank you so much Jackie - it is sitting on one of my end tables now :)

I was Mikki's secret santa, and I'm glad I was able to lift her heart up!
