Jules I am going to tell you that I am your Secret Santa since almost everyone else has theirs in and it's not too hard to figure it out now.  :lol1:

I am so sorry it was sent so darn late.  :ashmd: When I ordered the items it took the site 9 days to get it to me.  pullhair That put me having to send it this past Monday, so hopefully it will get to you sometime this coming week!!!!!  ipray

I have to say I tried to figure out the money conversion between your country and us. I just gave up and ordered from a US site. I was never very good at mathematical equations past simple add, subtract, multiply and divide.  Probably why I have only one child and 16 parrots (remember there's 8 budgies too).  laffhrd

Oh those are awesome photos of Coqui helping out. I love that look she is giving in photo #2 & your caption is spot on with that look!  :hehe: Parrots make it so easy to caption their photos. Coqui is definitely having fun helping unwrap the flock's Christmas.   :mgc:

Those are great gifts you got for Blanca's flock Wendy.  thumb  So colorful almost like tree ornaments themselves.

Another box Blanca?  confused Oh my, now I am excited all over again!!  handshappy :grin:

Oh bless you De, I'm lost as to who has sent what to who  stupid1

Don't worry I'm listening out for the delivery man, hope its not royal mail as they're notoriously so laid back they're almost asleep  hardlaf

What I do with dollars to pounds is just knock a couple of pounds off, for example. 5 GBP would be $3.50 or 10 would be around $7, does that make sense? I'm never far off  roll

Thanks so much for being my secret Santa  :heart:

My secret Santa presents came today, lots and lots of toys for Jasper, for her to shred and chew, she will love them once she is used to them. Sorry I've left it too late to take photos, but I'll put them on here tomorrow  thumb

For me there was a pretty necklace with a snowflake on it, in a fantastic jewellery box made by Jerry. I love it, thankyou so much De and Jerry  :heart:

Oh Awesome!! I'm so glad it finally got there Julie!!!  handshappy hugu

Did Jasper like her personal card from Santa Macaw? He wanted her to know she was a good girl even tho her gifts were late.  :heart:

Glad you liked your gift too. Incidentally I made the necklace part your snowflake is attached to. I tried to get a small feather to hang from it, but no matter which one I trried, they all looked to large & covered the charm. So, sorry I couldn't send you a tiny feather from my flock on it.  sad8

Happy New Year to you and Jasper!!  cheers drunkards drinky

Yes they all got here safely, it was with royal mail but they were early for once. Not to worry about the feather, it is just as lovely De, thankyou.

Jasper loves her card, and me too. What a cute polar bear  :heart:

Lots of 'ooooos' from jasper, she will love playing with her new toys. Sorry no photos yet but I will post them soon, promise  yy

Oh Wow!! Those are great toys Debra picked out for your fabies, Wendy!!  thumb

I love that foraging toy. Bet they will love trying to figure it out.  dmblaf

And that is such an adorable mug. And with your favorite thing to relax doing. ( :shrug: gardening was never relaxing to me. I called it 'hard work!' ) 

That should conclude all the Secret Santa Gifts now. Thank you each & everyone who participated.  :bounce: Can't wait til Christmas of 2015. We're gonna' ROCK this place!!  metal

This was a very fun year of giving & receiving our first year for many of our members here on BP.  hugu grouphug

Wanted to share one more gift with ya'll.  :grin: Blanca was my SS and she was more than generous with the treats she sent to my flock and even my 'wolf pack' (dogs, just dogs. no real wolves involved for millions of years.  dmblaf )

Blanca told me to be waiting for another package to arrive. It was supposed to have arrived last Friday, but it was delayed. Probably due to the little ice storm we had down here in the south where we are not used to such very often.  :lol1: Nonetheless I was hoping it would get her yesterday. My mailman comes around 2 in the afternoon and I checked my mail at 2:15 and only had a piece of junk mail. So I figured it was still in transit.  hmm sadboy3

I get a message from Blanca this morning telling me my package was delivered yesterday. Bless her heart that she did this cause I had to go check my vehicles to see which one the mailman put it in this time?  slaph Out here in the country in 'small town' Texas no one bothers our mail or packages and it is not uncommon for the mailman to leave the packages in our vehicles or in my garage. Usually he will leave a note for me in the mailbox, but not always, and this was one of those times. If he knocked on my door which I highly doubt, he did not knock hard enough to alert my 8 dogs!  roll confused

So anyway, I went out & found it all safe & sound in my old pickup in front of the garage. Thank you so much Blanca for my 'special' gift!!  hugu You have been way to kind to me. Those treats look so delicious! I will so enjoy some tonight at work. I may share with Jerry, but only a little.  2funny2 

And I got a very touching special card from Morgan & Marcus letting Jerry & me know how much they loved their jewelry boxes we sent them with Blanca's plaque of Savannah she won for the July photo competition I made for her.  loveuk This card will proudly go on my bedroom wall where I keep my dearest to my heart cards note & photos!!  :heart: I will cherish this card from these two special kids of your Blanca!! Give them  a super big hug for me!!  hugu grouphug

Here is a photo of my goddies and my precious card from Morgan & Marcus. I love the picture of Savannah by the tree. That is adorable!!
