    Happy Sunday! Good morning, all! :)

    Thank you, Ruby and Leenie, for the wish list items! I thought my list was so embarrassingly huge when I first joined, and yet it has been whittled away by all of you over the past many months. It is fun to scratch them off and find homes for my new items! Thank you so much!

    Ruby, I’m so glad you like the trading rooms, but I have to say, I am still so intimidated by them (even after your fantastic walk-through post). But I understand what you mean about each of us loving different things about WW. I think that’s what makes it so much fun because you can play the parts you like and skip the parts you don’t (like Ant Mania, haha!).

    Dee, yes! I can’t wait to get those last gnomes and be done! I couldn’t find the reindeer in the park this morning … maybe he’s done? I can’t remember what his last day was going to be, but if he hasn’t learned to fly by now, he might be in trouble.

    Congrats, Matoaca, on the Chimpanzee! I had a hard time figuring that one out even after I saw your answer. :)

    Merry Christmas Eve, everyone! Have a great day!

    Good Morning All !
    Merry Christmas Eve !
    Congrats Mato on winning the Signature Chip from RubyCube’s Contest !!
    and thanks again RubyCube for such a fun and generous contest !!!
    miracle.. the reindeer’s last day to appear was yesterday.. hope you were able to get the prizes you were looking for..
    As Christmas Day approaches… hope you all are able to check off of the things on your to do list.. so you can enjoy celebrating with family and friends…
    This time of year can be so stressful ..harried .. so busy..to prepare for the day.. let us all take a deep breathe.. relax and enjoy the celebration !!
    Have a great day !

    I wish everyone a happy holiday season. I had so much on my mind this morning that I woke up at 4 am and then could not get back to sleep. I drove to my favorite bakery at 7 am and picked up some goodies to eat on X-Mas Eve.

    I haven’t had a chance to look at all of the wishlists. Some packages might arrive after X-Mas.

    Thanks for the generous gift RubyCubes. I am very bad at finding things in the trading rooms. I have a hard time getting the very old items. It is really nice that you are doing the pet giveaway. I am finding the Webkinz plush harder and harder to find at stores. Maybe some day Ganz will just sell virtual pets and stop making the plush?]

    Here is the code for a free Reindeer Calf Cake Pop. The code expires on Jan. 30, 2018: W247-GV26-6F3C-QWC6

    Merry Christmas Eve everyone!
    Having a good time with dh’s family. I was crazy busy trying to get everything done before we left.
    Welcome new peeps!
    A big thank you to TLL and Ruby for these fabulous contests! What fun :)
    Ruby–It’s so awesome of you to make ‘rooms’ for everyone and go to the trading room in search for their wishes. I’m just now brave enough to enter the trading room to watch the action, but as soon as someone asks me to trade I bug out! :mrgreen:
    I would be forever grateful to trade with someone for the last four gnomes.
    dee–Thanks for the French toast casserole! I’ve been looking for a good one that wasn’t mushy for when my family visits over New Years.
    I named the lil basset hound 10 prize moms sent after the pioneer woman’s beloved Charlie.
    shelly–Thank you so much for the awesome gift!!! I love it!
    Everyone’s kindness and generosity is amazing.
    May you all have a wonderful holiday.

    Good morning, friends!

    Moms – It’s perfectly fine to start this new post. Gotta keep things moving! Glad you’re enjoying the holiday with your family. I understand what you mean about feeling sentimental. :)

    Miracle – Thank you for the gift! I especially love the abomina bowl of chili! Very cute! And totally agree about the variety of fun aspects to the game. Like ant mania! Every single day there is a daily high score to that game. Today it is a circus elephant named Jeffrey with a score of 283. That daily high score will change later today or tomorrow. Do you know what that means? There are people out there who actually play that game for fun! There is no incentive today… no trophy… no game of the day KC award. I do not understand this! But then there are many people who absolutely hate the trading room. So it’s all good! The variety helps keep the game alive.

    Gramma – I hope you’re feeling better each day!

    Gaga – Good morning and you’re welcome! :)

    Shorty – Thank you for the code. I definitely think Ganz is trending away from the plush pets and focusing more on their estore line. In December 2011, there were 7 new plush pets released, plus several virtual pets. This month, only 2 plush pets were released, and last month, only 1. And when the plush pets are released, a lot of them sell out very quickly. As far as I can see, the Bernese Mountain Dog that was released last month sold out within the first few weeks, and they are now selling for $50+ on Ebay. Ganz also seems to be putting very little into creative ideas for the plush line. They are recycling old ideas, like the patchwork cat and the calico look almost identical. The labs are all based off the same model, just change the color of the fabric and design a new PSI.

    From a business standpoint, it makes sense to scale back the production of plush pets and focus on the virtual aspect. Ganz got a lot of people hooked on the game with their plush pets, but as the game declined in popularity, a lot of pets were over produced, which is why stores like Tuesday Morning get them. Because Ganz has lowered its production of plush pets, I anticipate them becoming harder to find at discount stores. That said, check your local Hallmark stores for new pets. I thought I had looked everywhere for them. I’ve looked in many Hallmark stores in Cincinnati because they used to sell them, but they no longer do. However, I recently discovered two Hallmark stores in Cincinnati that sell new pets as they’re released! Only two. Hallmarks are franchised, at least some, and only this one owner (who has 2 stores) sells them locally. None of the other Hallmarks here do.

    The estore seems to have had great success though. It requires a lot less material and labor to create virtual items, so it seems to me that Ganz is shunting its resources into its virtual line. Because I’ve spent years in the trading room, I’ve seen trends in what’s popular. It used to be all about priceless (old in-game items like year one holiday prizes) and PSI. Now, it’s all about estore promo, mystery, stocking and cracker. And points! People trade for estore points all the time! It seems to me that Ganz is now producing in the estore like they used to do with plush pets, lots of new virtual items and themes frequently released. Because they are virtual items, there is no concern for over production and loss of resources if an item they make isn’t well-received.

    I don’t know if the production of plush pets will completely stop, but it’s a possibility. As long as it is profitable to make them, I’m sure they will continue to. And Ganz produces many stuffed animals apart from Webkinz, so it may be profitable to make a limited number that are sure to sell out. The market for plush Webkinz has significantly declined, but there is still a small market.

    I’ve got lots to do today and I’m getting a late start, so I better get moving!

    Have fun! :D

    Good Afternoon ! and Merry Christmas !!
    Gymbo .. so nice to meet you !! You have started such a great place to visit.. talk Webkinz and meet so many great people !! Just want to say Thank You !!
    22 bunny .. you sure are fast !!
    Moms.. have been thinking about the whereabouts of Boper too.. seems like it has been quite a while since he has checked in..
    Tuned in the CLE football game… our team is winless this season !! They have won one game in the last 28 games…Keeping my fingers crossed for a win today. Would be a nice X Mas gift for the city !!
    Looks like CHI is getting some snow and it has started snowing again here as well ! Both quarterbacks are from OH and are rookies…
    RubyCube.. local Hallmark carries some new Webkinz although it is a little sporatic.. Some months they have both new Webbies and some months none.
    Although I check Tuesday Morning 5 Below and Ollies.. which used to carry the older Webkinz.. they too no longer have any..
    Can’t believe it is 1 o’clock and have already had a nap ! Woke up at 330 and will be leaving shortly for Christmas Eve family gathering.. Most of them are night owls.. I am not.. so hopefully now that I have had a nap I will be able to celebrate with them !!
    Have a great rest of the day !!

    ‘Twas the night before MOTHERS DAY, when all through the BARN
    Not a creature was FARTING, not even a PIG.
    The TOGAS were hung by the GARAGE with care,
    In hopes that MOMSKINZ soon would be there.
    The children were nestled all snug in their COUCHES,
    While visions of TACOS danced in their heads.
    And MA in her PJAMS, and I in my DRAWERS,
    Had just settled our ARMPITS for a long winter’s nap.
    When out on the lawn there arose such a JINGLING,
    I SNORTED from the CHAIR to see what was the matter.
    Away to the window I flew like a CAT,
    Tore open the COMPUTER and SLEPT up the sash.
    The moon on the breast of the new-fallen BIRD
    Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below.
    When, what to my DIZZY eyes should appear,
    But a(n) ORANGE sleigh, and eight SMELLY reindeer.
    With a(n) CRUSTY old driver, so lively and FISHY,
    I knew in a moment it must be SHERLOCK HOLMES.
    More rapid than BEAVERS his coursers they came,
    And he RAN, and SMOKED, and called them by name!
    “Now, ZINGY! now, GRAMMA! now, RUBY and BOPER!
    On, KGH! On, GYMBO! on, AMBER and GAGA!
    To the top of the FIREPLACE! to the top of the DOOR!
    Now SLEEP away! WASH away! TYPE away all!”
    As dry leaves that before the wild TORNADO fly,
    When they meet with a(n) GOBLIN, mount to the sky.
    So up to the house-top the GEESE they flew,
    With the sleigh full of POTATOES, and ELOISE too.
    And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the DOG
    TheSKATING and SHOVELING of each little TREE.
    As I drew in my HAT, and was turning around,
    Down the chimney ALEX CROSS came with a BOOM.
    He was dressed all in FISH, from his head to his foot,
    And his clothes were all PICKLED with ashes and soot.
    A bundle of FLOWERS he had flung on his back,
    And he looked like a(n) JET PILOT, just opening his pack.
    His eyes-how they ATE! his dimples how SHINY!
    His cheeks were like CORN, his ARM like a STRAWBERRY!
    His GIANT little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
    And the beard of his chin was as YELLOW as the snow.
    The stump of a SHOE he held GIGGLY in his teeth,
    And the smoke it WASHED his head like a wreath.
    He had a(n) LONG face and a little BRILLAINT belly,
    That shook when he laughed, like a TUPPERWARE!
    He was WINDY and plump, a right TALL old elf,
    And I WRAPPED when I saw him, in spite of myself!
    A wink of his eye and a twist of his HEEL,
    Soon gave me to know I had nothing to SNEEZE.
    He spoke not a word, but went HAPPILY to his work,
    And filled all the SOCK, then turned with a CUP.
    And laying his finger aside of hisBUTT,
    And giving a nod, up the RUG he rose!
    He sprang to hisICE, to his team gave a WHEEZE,
    And away they all BORN like the down of a thistle.
    But I heard him exclaim, ‘ere he drove out of sight,
    FILL UP GET GAS

    Merry Christmas eve to everyone! And thanks so much for the lovely giftz, shorty & rubycubes! Can’t wait to get to decorating when I get back.I’m also trying to get to everyone’s list (at least for items I have) but may not get them all by Christmas. Where’s dee’s and boper’s list (sorry, I wish I can help with trophies but I’m not good at the ones you listed).

    Great entry, dee! Ahem, smelly? :)

    We just had our early Christmas Eve dinner and now I’m wondering if there’s still time for an after dinner nap, lol. We haven’t gone to as many places as we have in the past but we’ve been out walking in the neighborhood (so we wouldn’t have to deal with the stairs on subways) and there are lots of lovely little shops and bakeries open today. Still haven’t gotten to see the shop windows in the city so I’m hoping we’ll get to it tomorrow, as long as honey’s knee holds up.

    Dee – LOL! Not a creature was farting, not even a pig? I will never think of The Night Before Christmas the same way again. :D

    Gymbo – Hi! Love the forum you started!

    Moms and Boper – Thank you SO much for the incredible gifts! I was blown away! And Moms, thank you for everything you do to keep this community up and running. You too TMT and Zingy! You all rock!

    Boper – It’s great to see you post again! I hope you’re well and enjoying your break. If there’s anything you need, please let me know. I would love to return the favor and send you something cool, but there’s nothing sendable on your WL, and from the amazing gifts you send and rooms you design, I’m assuming you have… like… everything. LOL. Anyway, my offer to win you a Jumbleberry Blast trophy still stands. You’re welcome to take me up on it any time!

    Have a great night everyone! Happy Christmas Eve! See you in the morning! ;)

    Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the Log Cabin
    Not a creature was Snoring, not even a(n) Dog.
    The Stockings were hung by the Chimney with care,
    In hopes that Santa Claus soon would be there.

    The children were nestled all snug in their trundle beds,
    While visions of Ma’s Pancakes danced in their heads.
    And Ma in her Nightgown, and I in my Pajamas,
    Had just settled our Eyes for a long winter’s nap.

    When out on the lawn there arose such a Bark,
    I jumped from the Bed to see what was the matter.
    Away to the window I flew like a Ghost,
    Tore open the Windows and Tied up the sash.

    The moon on the breast of the new-fallen Snow
    Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below.
    When, what to my Sleepy eyes should appear,
    But a(n) Sooty Black sleigh, and eight Chocolate-colored reindeer.

    With a(n) Silly old driver, so lively and Happy,
    I knew in a moment it must be Santa Claus.
    More rapid than Cheetahs his coursers they came,
    And he Shouted, and Screamed, and called them by name!

    “Now, Charles! now, Caroline! now, Mary and Laura!
    On, Grace! On, Freddy! on, Almanzo and Rose!
    To the top of the Roof! to the top of the Chimney!
    Now Skate away! Spin away! Jump away all!”

    As dry leaves that before the wild Tornado fly,
    When they meet with a(n) Meow, mount to the sky.
    So up to the house-top the Birds they flew,
    With the sleigh full of Books, and Santa Claus too.

    And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the Roof
    The Tweeting and Dancing of each little Bird.
    As I drew in my Cough, and was turning around,
    Down the chimney Santa Claus came with a Tweet.

    He was dressed all in Blue, from his head to his foot,
    And his clothes were all Covered with ashes and soot.
    A bundle of Books he had flung on his back,
    And he looked like a(n) Doctor, just opening his pack.

    His eyes-how they glimmered! his dimples how Happy!
    His cheeks were like Holly, his Eyes like a Peach!
    His Happy little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
    And the beard of his chin was as White as the snow.

    The stump of a Tree he held Loosely in his teeth,
    And the smoke it Circled his head like a wreath.
    He had a(n) Silly face and a little Round belly,
    That shook when he laughed, like a Bowl of oatmeal!

    He was Heavy and plump, a right Goofy old elf,
    And I Cried when I saw him, in spite of myself!
    A wink of his eye and a twist of his Head,
    Soon gave me to know I had nothing to Worry about.

    He spoke not a word, but went Quickly to his work,
    And filled all the Stockings, then turned with a Grin.
    And laying his finger aside of his Nose,
    And giving a nod, up the Chimney he rose!

    He sprang to his Sleigh, to his team gave a Whistle,
    And away they all danced like the down of a thistle.
    But I heard him exclaim, ‘ere he drove out of sight,
    “Merry Christmas to everyone and enjoy your new books!”

    Wow! Secret Santa!!!! Wow! Thank you so much!!! :D

    All of these rewrites of the Night Before Christmas have inspired me to write my own little rhyme!

    What I’m Looking Forward to on Christmas Day

    Hubby cooks dinner while I hang out
    Online with friends at Gymbos, no doubt!
    Log into Webkinz or read a book, ‘cuz
    I’m feeling lazy since I don’t have to cook!
    Daughter will play some games with me
    Or we’ll cuddle up together and watch TV.
    Ornaments will clutch branches desperately, as
    Dad chases Chase up the tree!
    Large dinner my husband will serve us with pride,
    Even though all he got was a huge box with candy inside!

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, my super cool Webbie friends! I hope you all have a fabulous holiday!

    (((HUGS)))

    HO HO HO! SantaLurker hasn’t had two seconds to read up yet, so please forgive me if I skipped over some important things. It’s 3:00 AM Santa Time, so SantaLurker is going cross-eyed. :mrgreen:

    The following people were on my NICE list and should have received a present from QueenieB15. ;) Please drop a line here so Santa knows your present made it down the chimney!

    Kinzgram
    Ruby
    Miracle
    nita
    Amber
    shorty
    bepsy
    LeeAnn
    tmt
    moms
    zingy
    Boper
    dee

    The following people will be receiving code presents once moms forwards them to you. Please be patient, because moms is a busy woman!

    Kinzgram
    Mist
    gagagee
    shelly
    Boper

    If your name isn’t on one of these two lists, that’s because you didn’t add QueenieB15 to your phone. If you want a SantaLurker present, please add QueenieB15 really soon so I can get those reindeer over to your house. :mrgreen:

    shelly, thanks SO much for the lovely gifts! I’ve never even seen a 2000 KC coin before. Where did you find that one?! I’m never ever spending that one – it’s going into the coin collection in my dock, along with my leprechaun coins and my ghost pirate coin. THANK YOU!

    Boper OMG. Your gift literally made me cry! Two things I NEVER even hoped to own, and one thing that I originally got for myself but sent to zingy instead, because she loves cottages so much. It’s like that O. Henry story, The Gift of the Magi! I can NEVER thank you enough! I broke my own rule of not giving out very retired things just to say a (very inadequate) thank you.

    Reminder: the winner of the Christmas Mad Libs contest will be announced (much) later on today. The prize is a Gold Sparkle Gumball Machine! So if you have some spare time today, crank out a Mad Lib!

    SantaLurker is signing off for now, because I’m wayyyy behind schedule. I still have to deliver all the gifts to Europe and South America! :mrgreen:

    Congratulations on your new coat Dee! Lol

    Hope everyone stays safe and warm today. We got about 6 inches last night with no end in sight. Still debating on wheather we should take our annual trips to the cemeteries or not. We like to place small trees at each site.

    ‘Twas the night before NATIONAL DOUGHNUT DAY, when all through the POLICE STATION
    Not a creature was SLEEPING ON THE JOB, not even a K-9.
    The PLATES were SET ON the TABLE with care,
    In hopes that THE DOUGHNUT DELIVERY MAN soon would be there.
    The OFFICERS were nestled all snug in their CHAIRS,
    While visions of CRULLERS danced in their heads.
    And FELLOW OFFICERS in THEIR UNIFORMS, and I TOO in my BLUE,

    Had just settled our FORKS DOWN for a long winter’s MIDNIGHT SNACK.
    When out on the lawn there arose such a BEEP BEEP,
    I RAN from the DESK to see what was the matter.
    Away to the window I flew like a SPEEDING CAR IN A CHASE,
    Tore OUT the KEYS and OPENED the DOOR.
    The moon on the breast of the new-fallen NIGHT
    Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below.
    When, what to my HUNGRY eyes should appear,
    But a DOUGHNUT BOX sleigh, and eight FROSTED reindeer.
    With a CREME-FILLED old driver, so lively and SWEET,
    I knew in a moment it must be THE DOUGHNUT DELIVERY!
    More rapid than K-9S his coursers they came,
    And I PICKED UP THE BOX, and RAN INTO THE STATION and called them by name!
    “Now, OFFICER! now, DETECTIVE! now, SERGEANT and LIEUTENANT!
    On, CAPTAIN! On, COMMANDER! on, DEPUTY CHIEF and CHIEF OF POLICE!
    To the top of the TABLE! to the top of the PLATE!
    Now DUNK away! FEAST away! SLEEP away all!”
    As dry leaves that before the wild POLICE CHASE fly,
    When they meet with a FORK, mount to the MOUTH.
    So up to the MOUTHS the SPRINKLES they flew,
    With the FORK full of PASTRY, and COFFEE too.
    And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the PLATES
    The CLATTERING and CLANKING of each little FORK.
    As I drew in my LAST BITE, and was turning around,
    Down the STREET THE DOUGHNUT DELIVERY MAN PASSED with a BEEP BEEP.
    He was dressed all in WHITE, from his head to his foot,
    And his clothes were all STAINED with ICING AND CRUMBS.
    A BOX of DOUGHNUTS he had flung on his DASHBOARD,
    And he looked like a CHILD, just opening his PRESENTS.
    His eyes-how they LOOKED GLAZED! his CHEEKS how FULL!
    His cheeks were like CHIPMUNKS, his STOMACH like an APPLE!
    His CHEWING little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
    And the beard of his chin was as COVERED IN ICING as the snow.
    The stump of a CHURRO he held CHEWING in his teeth,
    And the SCENT it TRAVELED PAST his head WITH THE WIND.
    He had an ICING-COVERED face and a little ROUND belly,
    That shook when he laughed, like a TUB FULL OF CREME FILLING!
    He was FULL and plump, a right SWEET old elf,
    And I WAVED when I saw him, in spite of myself!
    A wink of his eye and a twist of his WHEEL,
    Soon gave me to know I had nothing to WORRY.
    He spoke not a word, but went DELIVERING to his work,
    And filled all the BOXES, then turned with a SCREECH OF THE TIRES.
    And laying his finger aside of his MOUTH,
    And giving a nod, up the ROUTE he DROVE!
    He sprang to his PHONE, to his team gave a CALL,
    And away they all ROSE like YEAST of a DOUGH.
    But I heard him exclaim, ‘ere he drove out of sight,
    “HAPPY NATIONAL DOUGHNUT DAY TO ALL, AND TO ALL A SWEET BREAKFAST!”

    moms – please check your PMs when you get a chance, sweet lady!

    And speaking of Secret Santa, OMG! Thank you ever so much…I got all kinds of awesome goodies! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    dee – thanks for the coat reminder…I knew there was something I forgot to do. :mrgreen:

    Amber, I was scrambling to get your gift at the last minute, because your wish list was empty until yesterday, lol!

    Miracle, expect another gift tomorrow. I thought I had more of your user names on my phone, so I only had room in your package for three things.

    Good afternoon friends! :)

    I just wanted to stop by real quick to wish you all a very happy holiday, no matter what you celebrate, who you celebrate it with, how you celebrate, etc. You are all in my thoughts today!

    It hasn’t been a great Christmas for me so far. I don’t want to go into too much detail right now, but I will say I am experiencing a new health ailment today (Merry Christmas to me) and I am terrified. I have no idea to what degree this new ailment will affect me, but I’m praying whatever happens I will get through it okay.

    On a more positive note, I want to say THANK YOU to shelleybrayley for the nice gift you sent me the other day!! I can’t remember if you were one of the people who I saw I had something on your Wish List, but after the holiday is over I am going to check for sure, and see if I can send you something nice in return. <3

    On another positive note, THANK YOU to Gymbo's Secret Santa for the surprise Christmas gift!! I wasn't expecting to get anything from anyone but my mom today, so imagine my surprise when I open my email to see that nice little gift. My heart honestly sank in my chest. You guys are like a second family to me. You make up all the elements that my physical family too often lacks. I truly, deeply appreciate you all. <3

    Again, wishing you all a very wonderful and joyous holiday! <3

    Merry Christmas/ Happy holidays everyone!

    Nitabuggy,Boper,RubyCubes, SantaLurker(lol), Secret Santa… WOW..THANK YOU so much for all the beyond over the top, amazingly generous, gifts.

    Thank you all for keeping me informed, making me laugh, and including me in your daily lives. You are my “Webkinz Family”!

    Otter, please know that what ever challenges you face, you are truly in my thoughts.

    Awesome mad libs people! They have been a hoot to read!

    Dee..sorry for the late response.. schwartie potatoes is a potato casserole made with hashbrowns, mushroom soup, sour cream, cheese and onions. It tastes excellent with ham. We had a huge meal last night with many friends and family. Very little left over from the 2 turkeys and ham. Everyone had a great time. I’m so tired today that I din’t even bother changing out of my loungewear. Life is great!!

    Happy holidays everyone!!

    Everyone here – thank you so much for making the holidays so merry for all of us!!! Secret Santakinz gifted over 30 people! So many of you sent me personal kinzpost – I can’t thank you enough! I am actually sitting here so emotional because your pixels have really touched my heart. I believe this might be THE MOST generous group of people EVER.

    I’m not crying over a virtual game or imaginary friends – you are! ♥

    I love you guys and gals!!! Thank you again for making this girl merry!!!

    and Otterkinz – we are here for you whenever you need to vent or rant or “talk” to people who are on the outside of your every day life – I think we all have found others here to be great support in all kinds of situations. Just know I’m thinking about you, and I will pray for all the best for you!

    Okay Gymbonians! The impartial jury (composed of myself and whatever family members happened to be around!) has made its decision, and the winner of the Christmas Mad Lib contest is matoaca’s fabulous pirate entry! Everyone who was reading that (very rudely over my shoulder, I might add!) just about died laughing when they got to the part where “he filled all his pockets” and “That was a good heist!” Congratulations matoaca! Please add QueenieB15 to your phone so I can get that Gold Sparkle Gumball Dispenser out to you as soon as possible.

    Honorable mentions go to moms for her AMAZING Webkinz-themed Mad Lib that she somehow managed to make rhyme, and to dee for the most Mad Libby-Mad Lib of them all! :mrgreen: I’m so glad so many people took part in this contest, which was rather time-consuming. Thanks for making this so fun! :)

    I still need to log in Webkinz, I took a four hour nap after I got back from my aunt’s house.

  99. 99 Patsie said,

    December 25, 2017 @ 10:25 pm

    I still plan to send out Christmas gifts. The accounts gifts will be coming from are Patsie, Happyandunoit, Iceskatersparky, and Skatergirl77716. The number of gifts per person will vary. SantaLurker, I thought we were friends on the accounts I just listed, did you delete me?

  100. 100 SantaLurker said,

    December 25, 2017 @ 10:29 pm

    Patsie, I don’t delete anyone from that phone, but there was an issue a few weeks ago with the phones and my list got all messed up. It’s possible Webkinz deleted you, because I could have sworn I had you added to my phone from multiple accounts (and Miracle’s multiple accounts, too, for that matter). You want to send me a friend request? I’ll go accept it right now and get your gift on the way, because the gift is just sitting there waiting to be sent lol.

    LeeAnn, we had schwartie potatoes and ham today. The schwartie potatoes were really good.

  102. 102 Patsie said,

    December 25, 2017 @ 10:30 pm

    SantaLurker, I will add you in 5 minutes or so if that is OK.

  103. 103 Patsie said,

    December 25, 2017 @ 10:40 pm

    Just a heads up, I will send Christmas gifts tomorrow since I need to get off the computer soon because my dad wants to go to bed.

    Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday.

    Thank you Secret Santa for the gift! I love it!

    Patsie, please see post 61 for the six things I think you love.

    SantaLurker, I sent a request to add you last night from my Webkinz account, stefieskates. Thank you so much for the awesome and creative contest! I really had fun making my mad lib!

  107. 107 Patsie said,

    December 25, 2017 @ 10:50 pm

    I also thought Dee was given a coat as a present. I am glad that other people were thinking that as well.

  108. 108 matoaca113 (WWID: stefieskates) said,

    December 25, 2017 @ 10:51 pm

    Patsie, I did not get a Christmas card from Webkinz today. I guess the postcard from the Santakinz visit is the card from Webkinz?

  109. 109 Patsie said,

    December 25, 2017 @ 10:55 pm

    I thought we usually got a separate Christmas Card. I don’t think I received Thanksgiving or Halloween cards either though.

  110. 110 Patsie said,

    December 25, 2017 @ 11:00 pm

    The first person to correctly list six things that I love and that are found in my Twas the Night before Christmas poem will win a special prize.

    Matoaca is the only person to guess so far and they are close. You have until the end of tomorrow to guess. Please only guess once.

  111. 111 Patsie said,

    December 25, 2017 @ 11:05 pm

    Does anyone else think the Webkinz newspaper is slow to be updated?

  112. 112 Patsie said,

    December 25, 2017 @ 11:10 pm

    The newspaper usually has Merry Christmas or Happy Thanksgiving or lists the other holidays on the front page and it still says something about visiting Ms. Birdy.

  113. 113 SantaLurker said,

    December 25, 2017 @ 11:11 pm

    matoaca, I got two friend requests from you. You want me to send your Christmas gift to one account and the gumball dispenser to the other? Or do you want me to send them both to the same account? If you want them both on the same account, let me know which one and I’ll get the gumball machine out to you tomorrow.

    Patsie, I just checked and I didn’t get a friend request from you. I hate this phone system!

    Anyone want to claim the WW ID rtyipy567?

    And 22bunny, I got a friend request from you, but you don’t have a wish list lol. What did you want from SantaLurker?

  114. 114 Patsie said,

    December 25, 2017 @ 11:15 pm

    SantaLurker, I can try sending a request again tomorrow if you want me to. Is that OK? I am getting ready to go to bed.

  115. 115 Patsie said,

    December 25, 2017 @ 11:15 pm

    Good night everyone. Merry Christmas again.

  116. 116 SantaLurker said,

    December 25, 2017 @ 11:35 pm

    Okay matoaca, I sent your Christmas gift to stefieskates, and I’ll send the gumball machine to the same account tomorrow. I was intending to wait for a reply, but I’m existing on four hours of sleep and I need to crash! :mrgreen:

    While I’m here, holy moly moms! That was an AMAZING gift. Thank you ever so much! Now I have to go find some spots for my new goodies, lol!

    Thanks also to nita for the coupons! Did you hold up the Webkinz coupon machine or something? :mrgreen: I’m working on a bunch of rooms on a side account for some themes I’ve never used before, so those will come in very handy!

    And thanks Miracle for the pet foods! My little food collector snatched them from my dock before I even got a good look at them. :mrgreen:

    Happy Tuesday, everyone!

    Thank you for the wonderful gifts, Wophy and Ruby! And Lurker, and Leenie, and Shelly! I can’t believe all of the things you’ve been able to find from my list! It will take me a while to find homes for all of them. I like keeping my dock clean, but lately, it has been impossible. And it’s getting harder to find things in my house since I still can’t rearrange and group the rooms (that would be a nice gift, WW!) However, we are now able to name rooms whatever we want (almost), so I have one labeled “gnomes,” and they are stuffed in there like sardines waiting for orders.

    SantaLurker, I remember at one point you had a bunch of my accounts, but after your incredible Christmas in July event, I think you said you were going to just keep one account because your friend list was full (what a nice problem to have!). Not sure I am remembering accurately, but that’s when I noticed them coming off. My others are cats4mom and dog5me, but no worries!

    So, what are good thank you gifts for those of you who are at a much higher collecting level than I am? You all send me such nice things, and all I can think to send back are coupons, coins, and PSF holiday foods thinking maybe you don’t have that pet. I am always happy to pay it forward when I can, but feel like such a moocher sometimes. :) You all are so generous!

    Glad you got the coats, dee! I got some as well, thanks to everyone’s reminders!

    Congrats, matoaca! Well deserved! The pirate entry was hilarious!

    Patsie, I tried to add your patsie account, but haven’t seen it accepted yet. Let me know if you want me to try again.

    I (sadly) stepped on the scale this morning, and I think it’s going to be salads all day today. That was a very serious jump in numbers, and not a good way to start off the new year. I might actually dust off that treadmill, too, so we’ll see!

    Off to check in with the accounts. Have a great day, everyone!
