Christmas in July

Not only have we been so fortunate to have an amazing SantaLurker to spoil us this month, but we also have a VERY generous Secret Santakinz who has provided us with an abundance of codes for Christmas giving!!! But that’s not all … several elves have stepped in with even more gifts of codes and pixels to join the celebration of Gymbo’s

So what do you need to do? Here are the instructions:

  • Add Kinzheads to your WW friends list. We WILL NOT add you, so add us now or we will pass gifts for anyone missing from our friend’s list on to someone else.
  • Include your WWID in your name on all of your comments. For example:  momskinz (WWID: momsownkinz)
  • Use your email address that is hidden behind your login or comment where you will receive any code gifts.
  • Be prepared to email momskinz to claim your prize! Instructions will be provided, and you will have a limited time to respond. Check back here on the blog often this week.
  • Comment and chat as usual! Be respectful and appreciative of our Santas and elves. We will have some random comment prizes as well as gifts, and our goal is try to give everyone who comments here some Christmas Cheer!

*ends 11:59 pm ET on 7/25/17

    Woo hoo! Two of the legendaries, Articuno and Lugia, just came out in Pokemon Go. Now we have another Christmas in July on the heels of TLL’s Christmas in July! Thank you, anonymous Santa, for your generosity! What a great weekend!

    A note before I post anything else in this thread:

    The use of my user name in a post does NOT count as a contest entry. Y’all know I don’t enter contests. ;) That would be entirely greedy of me, since I already have so much. Thanks for understanding!

    Bepsy – you have mail!

    Kinzgram – you do NOT have mail, because I only had two robot flowers and tmt and xenia requested them. Feel free to add another item to your gift!

    You might be asking yourself, “Self? Why the heck is SantaLurker up so late?” Well, I’m gonna answer that question. Round #17 begins now, and I was too excited to sleep. :D

    SantaLurker’s Christmas in July ROUND #17

    THIS ROUND HAS SPECIAL RULES. Please read them and follow them. Thanks!

    1) Maximum of ONE gift from this list per person, per day. You may ask for things from previous lists to fill up your box.
    2) First come, first served.
    3) There really is no “best things” in this round, because I had to pay real money to get all of them. So choose without worrying about that. ;)
    4) Only ask for things for yourself that you don’t have. I’d prefer it if people weren’t asking for things they already have so that they can go trade them. That’s not the point of this particular round of the giveaway. If I wanted these clothes to be traded, I’d go trade ’em myself. :mrgreen:
    5) Add QueenieB15 to your phone, if I’m not on your phone already.
    6) Be sure to give your WW ID each time you ask for your gifts. SantaLurker makes a list and checks it twice, but has a really bad memory and will not remember your ID unless you tell me! :mrgreen:
    7) And finally, don’t look a gift horse in the mouth. People who do that will be banned from all my future giveaway rounds. Seriously.

    Butterfly Ballet Flats – 2
    CandyKinz King Robes – 1

    moms.. love your intro to Christmas in July picture!
    dee.. whatcha cooking today ?? having cook out today… nephew has recommended a spice which he says has been on backorder for 6 months.. I ordered a “six pack” … made my Mortons..

    Wow SL -> that is yet another very generous giveaway. May I have a park ranger suit? I have the hat and was really excited to see that you are giving away the suit. Thanks in advance. leenie2014kinz.

    Momskinz — I’ll send some donations to your giveaway account.

  12. 12 Otterkinz said,

    July 23, 2017 @ 7:38 am

    Good morning everyone! :)

    I know I said I would post how I got into Webkinz last night/this morning, but I honestly don’t have the time. I had a curve ball thrown at me, and my day went from completely open to completely busy! I’ll definitely make it a priority to post that tonight, though. I really want to share how my Webkinz addiction got started so that you all can learn a bit about me!

    tmt5, thanks for the info on Wish Lists! Momskinz, could you please make me an author? I would really love to get my Wish List started!

    gagegee, thanks for the welcoming! :)

    SantaLurker, thank you SO much for sending me those items yesterday!! :) I had no idea the Dragon Egg Music Box had a little Raziel inside of it! I just thought it was really pretty and wanted it ever since it was on one of the Super Wheels! And the window is going to go perfect in a room I’m building! The flowers are lovely as well! I have a thing for decorative foods and potted plants in WW!

    I’m not sure who posted the picture of the new Galaxy Suit that’s soon to take the Golden Solar Suits place, but thank you!! I like this new suit even better than the current one!

    nitabuggy, I’m glad you were able to get you Trading List made! It gives me hope that I won’t totally mess up my list when I make it because I was confused when reading the same step you got stuck on! Thanks to Miracle for explaining it!

    momskinzs, I think I created a login for this blog, otherwise I’m not sure how I am commenting on this post. As long as there are no issues with that part, I would really appreciate you making me an author! And thanks for tip about headers! I think I will make a Wish List and a somewhat general “What I Have To Trade List” to start out, and if I can’t manage it/keep it up-to-date, I might edit it out.

    dee, I agree that Ganz/Webkinz should have retired the Golden Solar Suit on August 21st for the eclipse instead of the 2nd. That would have been fun!

    Miracle, I think an “end of the month” Peek-A-Newz prize swap is a great idea! :) I personally haven’t opened any of my Peek-A-Newz boxes yet (not sure what I’m waiting for), but I think I’d be encouraged to open them if something like this happened!

    nitabuggy, thanks for sharing about Snooty the manatee! Very interesting!

    SantaLurker, could I please have the Cotton Candy Dress? And is there ANYTHING I can send you in return? I sent you three 100 Kinzcash in the mail this morning, but that’s hardly compensation for the amazing you gifts you already sent me yesterday.

    One last thing before I go – what does “Use your email address that is hidden behind your login or comment where you will receive any code gifts” mean? I don’t quite understand… Particularly the part about the email.

    That’s all I have for now! Have a lovely day everyone! &;hearts

    gaga – i hope your cookout is delicious! sounds yummy!

    welcome newer friends! make sure you came to chat & visit & participate – we are a very generous bunch as you can see from SantaLurker’s AMAZINGLY GENEROUS giveaways, but we are also protective to make sure people do not take advantage of our kindness and generosity … so while Christmas in July is open to everyone, it is our way of our extending our welcome to Gymbo’s and anyone who just comes to get something & vanishes again will not be considered for future gifts or prizes – now chat away! :D

    Ho ho ho!!! SANTALURKER! I saw “Daffodil Hat” and giggled out loud! May I pretty please close my eyes and wish really hard for that from SantaLurker??? I think I’ve been pretty good this year. You know me, I’m going to be honest – I’m a little naughty, but overall I’m more nice than naughty :mrgreen: *if it isn’t too late may I also have a Rainy Springtime Window & Purple Flowering Hedge???

    Sorry for the long post guys… I didn’t realize I had typed so much. Also, yay I figured out how to update my username without having to ask anyone (super proud of myself)! I’m definitely getting used to the blog format now! Now all I need to do is figure out the email/comment thing.

    July 23, 2017 @ 8:17 am

    otterkinz – it should be the email you registered with – only an admin can go behind the scenes and see that email, and it comes in handy for me in confirming email to distribute prizes – yours is “ma**********”

    and you are now an author – Voilà!

    Miracle – the end of month swap meet is something we need to do!!! we talk about it, and it kind of happens, but i know i need to go back and look because i think i am missing one of the floral pieces and think we would all love to participate

    gaga – i was happy when i found that pic for the post – it makes me happy :D

    dh has a man cold, ya’ll – please pray for me – oh my goodness gracious

    mist – everyone is allowed to give! however you wish to give! i usually distribute email gifts/prizes because some people want to keep their emails private.

    Thank you for sharing about Snooty. I have a code for a ww manatee.. might need to steal that name. We were fortunate enough to offer a drink to a manatee(via a hose) that had come for a visit at my sisters place in the FL Keys. It was amazing,
    I’ve been quickly checking in on the blog for the last couple days but feel like I have missed so much so will have to read back over everything while enjoying my morning coffee.
    Welcome ALL newcomers.
    So much going on! Be back later.

    hey leeann! giving a manatee a drink is such a GREAT story!! oh my goodness that rocks!

    and for some reason i’m now thinking it sounds like the beginning of a joke “a manatee walks into a bar” … you gave it a drink hahaha

    zingy, did you see there are special rules for this round of the giveaway? (Well, obviously you didn’t, or you wouldn’t have asked for three things, lol!) Please choose ONE thing. Thanks!

    I’m releasing the three things that zingy asked for from this round. Whoever asks for them first gets them first.

    moms, oh no, not a man cold! Those are the worst! Big, strong, strapping men suddenly turn into whiny little mamas boys with the appearance of one tiny virus. :mrgreen: Sending all my thoughts your way! :D

    Off to mail some presents!

    Sorry ’bout that. Was too late in the day and didn’t read as carefully as I should have. I did see that you had the jumbleberry slippers that was on gaga’s wishlist and she saw them this am, yay!

    Would love the Summer Fun Flip Flops on Isla4577 pls. Thanks!

    That’s an awesome manatee story, LeeAnn!

    Hope your dh feels better soon, moms!

    Waiting for my hon to wake up and breakfast then we’re on to Legendary Raid Battles. Got 2 Articunos yesterday and hoping for a Lugia today. We spent all day in the park catching pokemon and they happened to have the pianos in the park event. It was nice hearing live music while walking around the Botanical Garden.

    Good Morning all!

    nita—I loved hearing about Snooty! I looked him up and read his story. Oh wonderful you can go visit him. I adopted a manatee (in WW :) ) recently. Should have waited so I could have given him this cool name.
    LeeAnn—How cool you got to host a manatee for drinks! What an amazing experience.
    moms—Oh no! Hope DH feels better soon. I love the Christmas in July graphic! … And of course, the actual Christmas in July!!! You are all so kind and generous, I’m blown away.
    SantaLurker—WOW, WOW, WOW! You are so amazing to offer these items you’ve paid for! May I request a Pink Tutu Belt and to fill the box, a Clam Shell and Candy Factory Jawbreaker from Adventure Park post to: zeker1013

    Hope everyone had a great day!

    Well zingy , I kind of looked over people’s wish lists before I started this ginormous giveaway and salted the giveaways lists with items from the wish lists. ;) I’m happy to say that most of the “salted” items have gone to the people to whom I intended them to go, lol.

    Otterkinz – thanks so much for the coins! I’m tempted to call you just Otter, but that makes me think of the movie “Animal House” and that would be REALLY inappropriate! :lol: And so glad you like the music box! I collect music boxes on WW and the Dragon Egg Music Box is my favorite one. (And I already have every music box ever released, blog, so don’t be sending me any, lol!)

    Cheese – thanks for today’s installment of squealing little piglet foods! :D

    I am hoping to get my internet issues straighten out soon but lately it has been a struggle to load pages at all. So while I’m able to get on I want to jump in here.

    SantaLurker, thank you for the generous and wonderful gift. Christmas in July was certainly awesome!

    momsownkinz, can you please accept my FR. I want to send some flowers from your wish list over for planting :)

    chocolatekat, hope things as going well for you. I enjoyed our trade very much. Please check your kinzpost. I happened to be on WW today when Arte had something I think you will like.

    I am going to be checking other wish list when my internet cooperates. I don’t have the newer stuff to send out but I have a lot of click to win etc from recent to years back so I’ll see who else I can help out.

    Have a great day everyone!

    Good Sunday Morning(almost afternoon)

    I got to sleep in until 10am today despite my kitten’s best effort to get me up at 8. Lol. We went to a retirement party last night for one of the chef’s my dh has worked with for over 25 years. It was a garden party and the sun came out for the duration. The family is vegetarian and the food was delicious. The hostess made an amazing vegetarian pate that I am going to beg for the recipe and then share here, yeah.

    Thank you to everyone on the blog for all your positive energy I know it is helping because we have been having rain, little wind and cooler temps.

    Thank you SantaLurker for everything. I wish you a very happy day and hope you get all the things you have secretly been wishing for.

    Let Peace fill your thoughts and Love fill your heart so you are full to spread Joy where ever you go.

    Catmom.. food must have been amazing for a retiring chef.

    Sunday is the day that I spend the most time preparing meals but I can’t get inspired as to what to make for dinner. I have tons of basil, so I know one side will be some kind of caprese salad with balsamic reduction. Lots of cherry tomatoes are ripe and ready. I love garden fresh veggies! That is as far as I have gotten though.

    I am so heartbroken right now. Yesterday I shared with you all about Snooty, our county’s manatee turning 69. Today I have learned that he has passed away. They will hold a press conference soon but what appears to be the situation is that he got in to where the pluming was in the aquarium through and access panel that is usually bolted shut and was unable to get out to breath.

    I would also love some organization tips. i tend to give each event its own room, with a place to decorate as well as store clothes and food. It makes my rooms a little cluttered-looking, but they are fairly organized. I thought some time ago, there was talk about WW letting us move our rooms around and upgrade small rooms to large, etc. Whatever happened with that? I would love to be able to put all my gardens together, Christmas rooms, etc.

    LOL, man cold! So distinctly different from a mom cold or a kid cold. Mine has one this weekend, too, but so far he’s doing okay. He likes those Cold-eeze things … says they really work for him.

    SL, may I have three items from an old list? Kinzville Snow Globe, Garden Gyroscope, and is there still a Dragon Music box? If not, I could get the Camping Cooler. Thank you so much!

    Hope they can remedy the problem so it cannot happen to another manatee…
    SantaLurker… THANK YOU so much for my new slippers !! Love them…
    Your outpouring of generosity to all of us is amazing !! You have made a very Merry Chirsmas in July to so many Gymbonians..
    CatMom.. always love reading your sentiments… they should be published ! You have such a heartfelt way of saying such nice things… So happy to hear that it is raining and weather conditions are helping to make things safer for all that live in your area !! Continued good thoughts your way !
    moms.. sorry to hear that your dh is under the weather… I agree with the rest of the comments that most guys do not do well at the first sign of a sniffle !
    Hope he feels better… How about some delicious chicken noodle soup ??
    Usually works the best !

    shellyb – i know you’ve been busy, but if you have a sec, post a pic with your pet in the wig – that’s a fun item! thanks again santalurker for spoiling all of us so!!!

    aww, nita, so sorry to hear about the manatee. *hugs* i sure hope they’re doing something to keep it from happening again. thanks so much for the lovely gifts, that was so thoughtful of you. I keep forgetting to ask – is your trading list the items you are wishing for or the items that you have and want to trade?

    lol, moms and dee. i like 3 ingredient recipes but love nitabuggy’s cooking ideas even better!

    kgh, we usually go to various parks during the weekend to catch. yesterday, for the go fest event, we had a local group organize a meet and my hon and i clocked in 10,000 steps before 11:30am – that was a record for us but it gives you an idea of how much walking we do when we play. it also helps to coordinate with other people (we use a discord app for that) especially for raid battles.

    TSL, thanks so much for the adorable flipflops! i usually try not to get enamored with chance items (i don’t do too well with those) so i missed which mystery bags they were in and didn’t think i’d get a chance to get them later on.

    Catmom, so glad the rains are helping out. Such a relief!

    Kinzgram, congrats to your gd

    april, thank you for the FR, I accepted!

    Zing, that is a list of things I am looking for and would like to trade for, or a wish list lol.

    dee, is there a healthier recipe for chocolate cake? Doesn’t have to be vegan. I love chocolate cake and I keep buying it from the store. I am too fat for all that lol. I know chocolate cake will never be healthy, but have you tried anything that was good and a little better?

  69. 69 zingyginger (Isla4577) said,

    July 23, 2017 @ 6:13 pm

    alice medrich has this recipe for chocolate cake on eating well that has 164 calories per serving. haven’t tried it but her recipes usually her recipes turn out and it’s received good reviews.

  70. 70 Shorty said,

    July 23, 2017 @ 6:23 pm

    Hi Nitabuggy, here are some things I do to make some recipes heathier: 1) substitute some of the fat and sugar with unsweetened applesauce, 2) substitute some of the butter with ground flax seed, and 3) substitute some of the flour with whole wheat flour. If a recipe calls for 1 cup of flour, I often modify it to use 1/2 cup of white flour and 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour. Ground flax seed goes rancid pretty quickly. I refrigerate this ingredient. Has anyone made a healthy chocolate cake using black beans? I have not tried this since it sounds strange and I am not sure about the shelf life of these kind of baked goods.

    ooh, Shorty, what would you say in your substitution of flax for butter. As example please as I have to wrap my brain around things sometimes.
    Zingy, I’ll check out that eatingwell site as I am trying more mindful eating. And trying to carve out time each week for exercise(soo hard for me).

    We made the Fluffy Slime but it was too sticky, maybe need to teak the recipe.

    I have baked banana bread with applesauce, ground flax seed, and whole wheat flour substitutions. The baking time is longer with whole wheat flour. The ground flax seed adds a nutty flavor. I have made healthy ice cream using avocados. 1 T of butter can be substituted with 3 T of ground flax seed. Don’t substitute out too much of the oil/butter with ground flax seed since it would result in dry baked goods. You can also easily add some ground flax seed and whole wheat flour to pancakes. I used to do a lot of recipe modifications, but these days, I mostly only do the whole wheat flour substitution. If I eat something unhealthy one day, I try to eat a bowl of oatmeal (not instant) with fresh fruit the next day. Eating oatmeal on a regular basis helps lower cholesterol.

    I got a legendary Pokemon today the Articuno. We were in Frankenmuth and since it is a tourist town they have a lot of gyms. Groups of locals were meeting up to battle the gyms so we were able to join in with them. We fought three legendaries the first one was a different kind but there weren’t enough of us. We won the second two YD got an Articuno the first win and I got it the second. I feel bad hubby and OD are the two that play the most and neither one of them managed to catch it after the battle.

    We only get a partial eclipse but the library is hosting an eclipse gathering and handing out glasses. So that is our plan for the day. YD will be at marching band camp so it will just be OD and I, with maybe a friend of hers. We will be driving OD to University the week after that.

    My friends from England are coming to the US for the eclipse he is a physicist and into astronomy. But they will be in Georgia. I helped research locations for them months ago and Nashville was on their consideration list. They had been there before though so decided to fly into Florida and take the train up to Georgia instead. It is the location most likely to have cloud cover so not sure if they made the best choice. Hopefully it will be clear.

    I make the Banana Banana Banana bread recipe I make from the Allrecipes with modifications suggested by people reviewing the recipe. To make the recipe healthier, you would need to come up with substitutions for the flour, butter, and brown sugar. I make these modifications to the recipe: 1) substitute out half of the flour with whole wheat flour, 2) substitute out part or all of the butter with unsweetened applesauce and ground flaxseed, 3) reduce the baking soda from 1 t to 1/2 t per reviewer comments, and 4) add 1/2 t nutmeg, 1 t vanilla, and 1 t cinnamon. Some experimentation is needed to figure out how much of the butter to substitute out. 1 T butter = 3 T ground flax seed. I have only used 3 T of ground flaxseed in my recipe. Sometimes I add mini chocolate chips or walnuts, but that makes this a higher calorie food (if you are counting calories). Normally, I read through the recipe review comments at the allrecipes web site to see what kind of modifications people are making to recipes.

    Some of my best friends are lactose intolerant and I love the substitute of applesauce! I’ve used it a few times just for myself and not just when I bake them stuff, and am always super pleased with the results!

    SantaLurker’s Christmas in July ROUND #18!

    THIS ROUND HAS VERY SPECIAL RULES. Please read them. Anyone who does not read them will not be allowed to participate in this round. Thanks!

    1) You may choose ONE AND ONLY ONE gift from this list. These things were purchased with real money, and most of them were quite expensive, so please choose carefully! What’s left will be taken off to the trading rooms, because this is some of my best trading stock. ;) You may ask for things from previous lists to fill up your box, but you may add only ONE piece of mystery/promo clothes to the box.
    2) First come, first served.
    3) There really is no “best things” in this round, because I had to pay real money to get all of them. So choose without worrying about that. ;)
    4) Only ask for things for yourself that you don’t have. I’d prefer it if people weren’t asking for things they already have so that they can go trade them. That’s not the point of this particular round of the giveaway.
    5) Add QueenieB15 to your phone, if I’m not on your phone already.
    6) Be sure to give your WW ID each time you ask for your gifts. SantaLurker makes a list and checks it twice, but has a really bad memory and will not remember your ID unless you tell me! :mrgreen:
    7) And finally, don’t look a gift horse in the mouth. People who do that will be banned from all my future giveaway rounds. Seriously.

    I was hoping to get some weeding done today but it is raining so I’ll busy myself with indoor things I guess.. like playing WW lol.

    Last night I just decided to have caprese salad, grilled veggies, baby potatoes and cedar plank salmon smothered in fresh dill. I LOVE summer cooking.
    Thank you Dee and Shorty for the recipes. I was reading about all those desserts while cooking dinner and between the visuals in my head and the smell on the bbq, I was dying of hunger.
    I think I may try the “healthy” version of banana bread. The one I use is from an old German lady that her grandma gave her but is uses ALOT of butter. The only thing healthy in it is banana.

    the banana bread sounds so good – ya’ll are making my stomach growl – just reading about about the salmon almost made me drool :mrgreen:

    that butter laden banana bread though reminds me how we joked about Snickers salad being healthy because it has granny smith apples and is called a “salad”

    Banana Bread, Snickers salad, I’m so hungry! My banana bread recipe has 6 bananas in it. Along with tons of butter and sugar…I don’t think it qualifies as healthy. :mrgreen:

    I normally do not substitute out all of the butter in my recipes because I still want my baked goods to taste good. I think that I substituted out 50% of the butter in the banana bread recipe. I also like baking pumpkin bread in the fall.

    Mist- everyone is allowed to host a giveaway. Now is a great time! Email me or message me on facebook.

    Pokemon- I did one articuno battle yesterday with 10 others and we beat it with about half the time remaining. I didn’t catch it after though :(
    Then walked to another articuno raid nearby and attempted to beat it, but there were only 8 of us and I was the highest level at 31 so we didn’t stand much of a chance. We had about 20% remaining when time ran out.

    Nita- sorry about the manatee. So sad!

    Thanks dee and zingy for the recipes. I add all of them to a google doc for safe keeping!

    Do you like your instant pot, moms? I hear it has a cult following. we have several pressure cookers (honey likes them as everything goes much faster and oxtail has a much better texture when cooked in them) but don’t know if there’s something that we can do in an instant pot that we can’t do in a regular pressure cooker.

    We did several raids yesterday – we weren’t sure how long the legendaries would last (no official word from Niantic if they’re here just for 48 hours or to stay and be very rarely scheduled after today). After 2 Articunos (we had a huge crowd for both and I caught both), we went to the tail end of a Lugia and it was a disaster. We barely had enough people for a Lugia and this woman kept going into the lobby with us as if she was going to battle then she would stop battling, waiting for help that never came. Then the timer ended and the raid battle was no longer available even if we wanted to retry. That was a waste of a ticket. So we learned to only to those raids that have just begun so we were sure to find more people coming to help and went to 7 more Lugia raid battles. My honey kept catching Lugia after Lugia but I had no luck getting one yesterday. Finally, this morning, we tried again and I finally caught one. Not the best Lugia by far, I have to use a Fast TM to fix the moves but it’s going to be treasured like TLL’s gifts.

    So much cool stuff, Santa Lurker. :) May I have a Surprising Storage, a Sparkler, and an Oak Tree Fireplace?

    I have been redecorating Webkinz rooms all day trying to get organized. Finished my Rocky Park for this year … I liked the wallpaper they gave us. Makes it all misty-looking.

    Tomorrow I am organizing for a used book donation sale at our church this weekend to raise money for our school library. People have been donating books all year and it is always fun to get them all out, organize them, and help people find something they love. But so many boxes to go through! I’ll drag my kids along to help me, so hopefully they can help with the hauling. I always enjoy reading and organizing children’s books for the sale. Any readers here? Read anything interesting lately?

    AmberRose, can you please send an invite to me? My internet once again isn’t cooperating very well and changing pages on WW is a nightmare. I would like to send you a “wish”.

    I’ve been reading some of the many cooking comments. Perhaps someone can give advice to a person who is definitely not a cook. I love zucchini but usually do the same thing over and over. I give it a quick stir in olive oil, toss in some tomato and onion and sprinkle on some random seasoning. Is there anything specific that would be good with it? Or a different way you prepare it that isn’t complicated? Advice would be appreciated.

    Good evening everyone! :)

    Wow, so much to catch up on! Fun recipes, info on instant cookers, your Pokemon Go experiences, etc. I don’t know how I’m going to keep up! I read through the majority of yesterday’s comments yesterday, but with today’s comments, I don’t know how I could possibly respond to all of you/tell you all what I thought after reading your comments! All I can say right now is I really enjoy reading about all the different things you guys post about. Like LeeAnn said, I learn something everyday!

    Wow, SantaLurker! I think you are the most generous person I have ever encountered!!! :) Wish we had more people like you in real life that were as generous. There really are so many people on this planet that are lacking simple, basic things like clean water, food, shelter, etc. and I just know if everyone who did have these things helped out/helped out a little more, we could truly change the world!

    I really want to thank you for the amazing gifts you have sent me so far. Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought someone would be so nice and send me things I’ve always wanted but thought I’ve never get without even wanting anything in return. Like april1013, said I, and I’m sure everyone else here, wishes we could do more for you!!

    As for today’s Christmas in July round, could I please have the Springtime Bed and the Duckling Rain Hat from yesterday’s list? I was so excited about the Cotton Candy Dress, I didn’t even see that hat. I tried trading for that hat a while ago, but no one seemed to have one for trade.

    OK, that is it for me for now. I am going to go into my Google Drive and type up how I started on Webkinz and post it for you all a little later. I don’t want to just type it here because my Internet has been pretty bad lately, and I’m afraid that I’ll type out this long post and go to submit my comment only to have the Internet tell me my connection has timed out. It did that yesterday when I tried to reply to everyone’s comments, so I’m not risking it today.

    See you guys later! :)

    dee – nothing is instant, but it does cook things very fast without heating up the whole kitchen & is safe (unlike the old timey things)

    zingy – i don’t know if it is any different than any other pressure cooker – i think that’s the “name brand” of this kind but not that it is unique … although IP users take this business very seriously, i think it’s just a pressure cooker but it does have a saute feature to brown, sear, or saute & a slow cook setting too

    all I have done with mine so far is make spaghetti, but it made good one pot spaghetti from start to finish pretty fast and with only one pot to clean, no colander or anything …

    dd is making a banana split cheesecake tonite………difficult sometimes to time what I plan to bake and what she gets a gumption for……..but she gets first kitchen dibs as she is a guest…………..ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

    and lurk – I hear ya……..some recipes I will never redo……just not right to me…….if it was my lifestyle or health decision, that is different…..and that bat signal has not worked for a while…… go thru the hoops and you get a pop up that says (nuts and bolts are busy, try again later)…..I was hoping to do five on a webkinz paws acct to get the good stuff……..

    Good evening all! It’s been a whirlwind last few days here. Today was an exhausting day with my sister’s toddler (I live with her and her three kids). He’s incredibly high energy, and today he was determined to make sure I accomplished nothing but entertaining his every desire :lol: Anyways, looking forward to some down time this evening before it begins again tomorrow!

    Oh LeeAnn I would loooooove it if I could bottle his energy!!! It’s difficult to get some of the energy out right now, too, as it’s just been too hot to even go outside! Then as if the house weren’t crazy enough with the toddler, my sister’s other two kids are a teen & pre-teen girls!!

    Lurk, your generosity in this giveaway is astounding, thank you so much for all the wishes you’re granting – of my own and of everyone else’s! Granting others wishes really is one of the best feelings there is! With all of that said, if it is still available I would love to request the Sugar Rush Raft please!

    TSL, just wanted to clarify – can we ask for another item on giveaway 17 today? And if so, I’d love the Southern Belle flats on Isla1122. If not, please disregard this post.

    It’s been a long day. My father-in-law had cataract surgery on his right eye that has problems with his retina and has been told he may not have much improved vision after surgery because of this but it will help with the retina specialist being able to visualize the retina to continue the injections he has been receiving. It’s been less than a week since the surgery and he’s been complaining that the vision is not better yet (which is to be expected) and has been giving my mother-in-law grief about the preop for the left eye cataract (he wants to wait until the right eye is improved which may or may not, given his current retina condition). Meantime she is the one who is concerned because he has been unable to see well and he has a tendency to get up and wander in the middle of the night by himself. Just hoping that our talking to him tonight will ease his concerns about the the left eye surgery so that he can get done and see better at least in one eye.

    And did I mention he has trouble forming new memories due to his brain surgery for a tumor over a year ago? Wondering if we should have made a video of all the reassurances we gave him in case he changes his mind again right before the surgery.

    BTW bat signal may only be good until midnight KT (hopefully it’s at least til am) so don’t wait.

    Hi all. I am new to this forum and want to say hi. I have been playing Webkinz for several years, and I added Kinzheads to my friends list, even though I don’t know who you are. Over the years, when doing general searches about Webkinz items, I have been directed to this website, but I always thought it was just a running blog. I never realized there was a message forum here, but recently I checked this forum out at the recommendation of a friend in WW, and I discovered this forum. I hope to get to know some of you!

    SantaLurker, I cannot thank you enough for the incredible gift. The window is fantastic! Your generosity is truly amazing. Congrats on the polar plunge trophy. Do you have any tips? I’ve played a number of times but so far no success.

    momsownkinz, may I be added to the bat signal emails please?

    dee, thanks for the ideas. I definitely have to try zucchini cookies. If it has cookie in the name I’m all over it!

    zingyginger, sounds like your father-in-law is in for a long recovery. Sending him good thoughts.

    amberrose, I didn’t receive an invite from you but my account is cooperating today so I sent one to you.

    shorty, will you please accept the invite I sent so I can send you a wish.

    Forewarning: this is going to be a looong post.

    shorty1 – That olive oil chocolate chip zucchini bread sounds amazing right now!

    SantaLurker – Thank you SO much! You have no idea how grateful I am to you! I actually cried when I opened today’s gift because you’ve just made me feel so blessed! :)

    dee – That veggetti thing sounds so cool! I might just have to get one of those down the road! I did a quick Google search and bookmarked it so that I won’t forget!

    SantaLurker – Congratulations on snagging that bronze Polar Plunge trophy! I have only gotten one of those so far, but I’m hoping to get another one on another account.

    Mist – Don’t feel bad! I don’t know what the bat signal is either, lol.

    Momskinz – I am SO glad that you guys have a secret little way of letting members of this site know about “hush hush” type things. I’m not sure if I am allowed to say the site name (so I won’t), but I belong to this Webkinz forum where no one keeps anything hush hush… And the second people open their mouths about a good glitch it disappears. Imagine that… Can you add me to your email list? I definitely won’t blab about anything.

    Michele/dancerchick/choircutie – Your sister’s toddler sounds so cute! Sorry he wore you out, though!

    zingyginger – I’m sorry to hear about your father-in-law’s condition. My grandfather actually just had cataract surgery, too, but thankfully things turned out a bit better for him. I think you should go ahead and make that reassurance video just in case and give it to your mother-in-law to hold onto. That way she can have it on hand in case your father-in-law changes his mind at the very last second.

    Patsie – Sorry you can’t sleep! I feel for you. I know how miserable it can be to try to sleep only to toss and turn and not be able to shut down your brain/body. Hopefully you are getting some rest by now!

    SantaLurker – Strawberries! Because there are 6 and a half strawberries in this “berry veggie” juice smoothie I am drinking right now! Ironically enough, the Pineberry Patio Plant actually gives out a Pineberry smoothie every day! If I won, me and my pets could drink our smoothies together!! :) Good luck everyone!

    RubyCubes – Hi there and welcome! I am relatively new to this blog as well but I am already having a blast and I know you will too!

    *Drum roll*

    And now the “long awaited” story of how I got into Webkinz and a bit about myself:

    The year was 2008 and Webkinz was still fairly new (wow this is already so cheesy). I hadn’t a clue Webkinz even existed until one day, my usually very unlucky self, won a raffle. And the prize: my first ever Webkinz. I adopted my Webbie, a beautiful black bat with lovely emerald eyes and everything took off from there. When my birthday rolled around a month later, a friend got me the recently retired Fantail Goldfish and another friend gave me a gift card (because that is what I had told her I wanted) to go buy something on my own. And of course I went out and bought a Webkinz Pig! Who wouldn’t? Not all that much longer, I went to Walgreens where they were having a sale on Lil’ Kinz and bought my first ever Lil’ Kinz pets: a Lil’ Kinz Elephant and a Lil’ Kinz Basset Hound. Walgreens had another deal come Christmas time and I got a Lil’ Kinz Koala, a Lil’ Kinz Golden Retriever, a Lil’ Kinz Polar Bear, and a Lil’ Kinz Panda, all of which came in these cute little Webkinz Christmas bags (papers ones, not fabric or anything). The rest of it is kind of a blur from there… As for the actual game, I used to always go to my local library to play and take care of Webbies. Then I became friends with someone who lived near by me and also played Webkinz. We took turns getting on Webkinz at her house because she had Internet and I didn’t. Our friendship blew up after about a year and a half, though, and (obviously) I could no longer play at her house. So for about two years, I stopped playing Webkinz altogether. It was only during a really rough patch (I would say it was probably the worst year of my life) that I remembered about my Webkinz account and thought to check and see if it was still there. I was surprised to find my Webkinz account in tact (and several “your account will expire in x amount of days” messages in my Kinzpost). Of course I adopted a new pet and eventually started to get into Deluxe. In 2015, I opened a Free account. After about two months, I caved and bought two virtual pets and made the account a Full Membership account. It took a while, but I got used to managing two account. Fast forward to this past May, I opened another Free account. Currently it is still Free and only has the one pet on it, but I’ve definitely been thinking about adopting a Webbie on that account. Fast forward to this exact moment in time, I have my three accounts with a total of 72 ADOPTED pets spread across them (I have plenty of unadopted pets that I’m waiting to see if they become Pet of the Month, etc.), and I play Webkinz every. single. day. I also do my best to get on Webkinz Newz and do my usual “routine” there every day. Oh, and I almost forgot! Somewhere along the line in my Webkinz timeline, I made another (real life) friend who also plays Webkinz! We meet up every now and again, and we sometimes buy each other Webkinz pets for special occasions (you know, birthdays and that kind of stuff). But yeah, that’s basically my Webkinz “origin story” (and beyond lol). Outside of Webkinz, I watch a lot of television shows and movies ranging in target-age and content. I enjoy shopping, traveling, sleeping (when I actually can lol), and I like to think I am a kind, loyal, intelligent, and logical human being. I can be rude and lose my temper sometimes, but usually only when someone I really love/am really close with is REALLY irritating me. And last but not least, I am slowly transitioning into a Vegan lifestyle so I really love all the talk about healthier foods and ingredient substitutions on here! Keep ‘em coming you guys!

    Wow, I’m sorry this was so long. Hopefully I didn’t bore any of you to sleep. This is just the first time anybody’s ever asked me about Webkinz so I couldn’t leave anything out!

    Thanks for reading and taking the time to get to know a bit more about me and my Webbies! :) Have a wonderful day everyone!

    Boysenberry – The yogurt flavor I bought every day for lunch back in the 80s, while I played the old text “Colossal Cave Adventure” game on my green screen Wang computer. Those were the days! To this day, when I eat it, I am immediately transported back to those moments.

    Patsy, I can’t sleep either, and it’s too late to take an Advil PM. I’ll feel it later, for sure.

    Great origin story, Otterkinz! I remember when Walgreens had all of those Lil’ Kinz pets. They were the ones who also had all of the Webkinz Cares stuff.

    Can I make a request? Would it be possible for people to add the date they last updated their wish lists? I’m clicking through them, and have a few items I could send out; however, some lists have creation dates of early 2015 and I can’t tell if they’ve been updated since that time. I’m not sure I want to send something out if the person is no longer active, or has already received it, but hasn’t updated their list. Or maybe an admin can move all the lists that have been updated in the past few months to the top of the feed? Is there a way to tell otherwise?

    Just brainstorming here … and hoping to be able to give back! :) You all have been so good to me. :)

    Miracle – YES!!! EVERYONE NEEDS TO ADD A “LAST UPDATED” with date & time to their wish lists!!! I was noticing that, too – it’s hard to tell if they are maintained. I might be able to look behind the scenes and see the last saved date at least, so I’ll take a peek.

    See mine for an example if you need one – you can click on my name on my comments. It even helps having it before the “more” tag.

    Shelly, Thank you for that amazing gift. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    Wow, there are a lot of people that are on here early/late depending on time zone.

    i added a last updated thing to the top of each wish list before the tag to “read the rest of this entry”, so it is easy to see when you scroll through the *Trading Lists* category, and I’m going to move any list not updated in 2017 down to the bottom

    hi everyone, I’m adding these to my wishlist but I thought I would post here so it would get more visibility. I’d like the trophies to these games, but they aren’t tradeable, so ideally someone would be able to log in to my account and get them for me. Obviously it would only be someone that I trust. Let me know if you can help. You will be rewarded.

    Kinzgram, sorry, but list #18 was good only for yesterday. Comment #191 says “And time is up on Round #18. I sure hope everybody got what they wanted! Because it’s time for Round #19!”

    Boper, did you ever get the Stardrops trophy? That’s the one I’d be able to win for you, and I now have two-way private communication. :mrgreen:

    Good Tuesday Morning and Merry Ho Ho Christmas in July and Happy Mid Summer.
    Welcome new peeps and love your story Otterkinz.

    Loving the unusual berries that make me laugh. Mine is Goblin fruit berries, highly addictive and deadly to humans and changelings but a wonderful gift of dreams for pureblood Fae. Segway to the book series I am re-reading because book 11 releases in September. The author is Seanan McGuire and the main character’s name is October Daye. Awesome very fast paced series set in modern San Francisco. Just as good or better second time reading.

    I do not have a wish list because I am currently only looking for one thing, a red mushroom house. I have bought more than ten of the mystery bags and no luck. My ID is ggmomcat and I would like everyone who isn’t my friend to please send me a friend request. I have lot’s of stuff to share and would like to send everyone here a gift to celebrate all the Joy we share every day.

    Hugs and Happy Trails

  249. 249 SantaLurker said,

    Catmom, I finally got the red mushroom house on bag #14. :shock: I’m glad I always pay off the credit card in full each month, because if I let all those mystery bag purchases stack up, I’d have to sell a kidney to pay the bill. :lol:

    Wow, what an awesome fun round, TSL. Thanks for the gift and for your generosity, time and patience!

    Shorty, I ‘ll have to try to find some Japanese eggplant. Sounds simple and at least gives a little variety to mix with the zucchini. Thanks.

    Hi rubycubes, I’m new too!

    Thanks momskinz, I’ll try to get a wish list up tomorrow.

    blackberry – my honey’s favorite berry. i always worry he’s going to come home full of thorns when we hike as i can’t stop him from going thru bushes just to pick ripe wild berries near the trail.

    Welcome, RubyCubes!

    Thanks for the prayers and good thoughts for my father-in-law! We hope he’ll do much better with his left eye that hasn’t been affected by as much retina problems but it’s so very hard to explain to him the rationale for doing both eyes in close succession (right eye so the retina specialist can treat it and left eye so he can regain useful vision). Then, when we think he finally gets it, his memory doesn’t hold much new information so we’re almost back to square one. It’s almost like Fifty First Dates with Drew Barrymore without the cute outfits and funny scenarios. We’re very fortunate that my mother-in-law is healthy and has so much patience and energy (she still runs down several flights of steps in a flash to open the door) to take care of all his medical needs plus babysit my energetic 5 yo niece most days.

    Thanks so much for the lovely Christmas in July treats, shelly! Will have to make a room with them in it.

    LOL on all the new berries. I’m still chuckling at Lurkerberries.

    Congrats on the polar plunge trophy, TSL!

    All the origin stories make me wistful about that time long ago when you can actually pick up a plush to check it out (do i like the face? is it soft?) because it can often be found in stores unlike now.

    Aww, dee, your dd isn’t running away. she’s just giving you and your dh more together time.

    Peanuts, you need to add an “insert read more tag” … when you’re editing your list, put your cursor where you want it to add it. Then above your text box, click on the second formatting icon from the right (if you hover over them, they will tell you what they do). HTH!

    July 25, 2017 @ 6:19 pm

    Nitabuggy, your friend request was accepted.

    Just a heads up – alas, it will take a bit of time to get everyone’s FR’s accepted. There are currently 26 (yes, twenty-six, not including Wophy) FRs and there is a glitch that allows kinzheads to accept only one FR at each log in. I really wish Ganz would fix this already; it’s been going on for a while.

    Also, there are a bunch that I have not seen before nor have I seen them comment on the blog so unless someone pipes up and says it belongs to them, the FRs will not be accepted and will eventually be deleted.

    As momskinz said, this is a comment contest, breathing is not a requirement but making a comment is (to be eligible for prizes).

    Blueberries – what we usually have with oatmeal for breakfast every day with maple syrup and giant raisins from Trader Joe’s.

    Candyx3, I’m good all things considered. Where did you go camping? My hon’s family is trying to organize a weekend in Yosemite if we can get a place to stay overnight. Should be beautiful this year with all the rain we had earlier. I think it’s still spring there (their season’s a bit delayed especially in the High Sierras).

    dee – where’s the meatloaf recipe you mentioned earlier?

  273. 273 zingyginger (Isla4577) said,

    July 25, 2017 @ 8:18 pm

    Lingonberries – the ones at IKEA go great with their meatballs. Sadly, I think they tinkered with their meatball recipe so it doesn’t seem as good as I remember it.

    I totally drain the tomatoes and do 2/3 c of the oats……..
    we are Yankees and are used to a dry meatloaf (that you smother in gravy) and this is definitely southern that you can get anyplace here at lunch….they make it, chill it, slice it, then fry it and serve with whatnot (pinto beans, greens etc)………the topping sauce is wonderful and I was telling dd that it is a good bbq substitute if you live in a dorm or do not have a whole cabinet devoted to spices like I do………hmmm………makes me want to do a spice contest (ala cheese whiz)

  278. 278 dee said,

    July 25, 2017 @ 8:59 pm

    eclipse berries (cuz I am pushing the cause)

    zingy…… can make it with ground turkey or chicken or whatever my dd uses for ground meat equivalent……..that may affect baking time
    but yeah, write down that topper sauce for other stuff and it is pretty easy
    dh and I went out earlier and went to lunch at a nicer fast food place!
    so I was totally scarfing all the mustard, hot sauce packs for dd to take back to college!
    also good for camping if anyone camps………we used to, then dh got old

Your daughter’s new recipe food collection is officially complete :mrgreen: I’m SO tempted to participate in your comment contest for the Pineberry Patio Plant, but since I frequent the TRs a lot I may come across one ;) Thank you for being so generous and good luck to everyone entering!

    Hi, Ruby! Nice to see you here :D Welcome to Gymbo’s!

    Otterkinz, I enjoyed reading about how you were introduced to Webkinz :) Thanks for sharing! And ditto what zingy said – I also miss purchasing Webkinz in-person (facial expression is so important, lol :lol:)

    I’m glad wishlists are being updated – I’ll be peeking in to see if I can grant more wishes :D

    nitabuggy and shellybrayley, I have a surprise for each of you! I sent a friend request to Wophy and shellybrayley from “3Ch” ;)

    Have a great night, everyone!

    Strawberry – I missed the strawberry season in June, such a short season here. I like to buy locally is I can.

    I miss making trips to Hallmark with my granddaughter and looking at all the new Webkinz. It was a fun time for all of us. So many years ago, 9 years have passed and she is no longer interested in Webkinz. This blog has kept the WW alive for me or I would have quit a long time ago.

    “Strawberries” re this comment:

    “and everyone – be CAREFUL to START your comment with your berry!!! I reread SantaLurker’s comment, and it says “start your comment with the name of any kind of berry. Real berries, imaginary berries, or Webkinz varieties are all acceptable.”

    Clearly, I didn’t read carefully enough. Sorry!

    Anyway, I just finished reading through everyone’s comments and I have a couple of things I want to comment, but it will have to be after midnight since I haven’t done any of my dailies in Webkinz World yet today. I took a nice loong nap this evening after sleeping for only about 3 hours last night and I don’t regret it. I know it will make my sleep schedule even wackier than usual, but I really feel like I got some good, deep sleep and I had lots of dreams! That’s always a plus!

    Mist, if I send a friend request to sunshinepaws could you please send “luna101217” a Sunny Spring Head? I absolutely love flower headbands!

    Oh, and before I forget, thank you shellybrayley for the two Christmas foods and Kinzcash coin! I’ll have to put the foods in a fridge for safe keeping!

    XO, Otterkinz (WWID luna101217, FloppyBunny40110, an BigTop71)

    Kinzatheart berry

    Disappointed in the Helping Paws.
    The only thing that counts is when you spend money on a deluxe or webbies.
    Even when I do these things I get flooring.

    So I guess nothing else you do matters???

    Wow, what a nice giveaway, Mist! (No, I’m not participating, because I have all the Spring 2017 mystery already, lol.) It’s so nice to see the Christmas in July spirit flowing so freely!

    Heads up! Only 50 minutes remain to participate in Round #19. So post away with those invented berries, peeps! I am laughing my head off at some of the berries you guys have come up with. :mrgreen:
