Oh my goodness thank you all for the amazing gifts!!! If anyone hasn’t updated their wish list please do, and I will be going through them to see what I have in stock within the next couple of days. I would have done it sooner, but I got caught up in the festivities.
My Christmas has been going pretty well so far. My younger sister got a little bit sick with a sore throat, but wonderful gifts were given and received, my family spent some time together playing games and whatnot, and we had some good food too.
That being said, me getting caught up in other things somehow led to me forgetting the final Ms. Birdy window gift and the reindeer rocker code. If anyone would like to trade an extra of either of those just let me know what you would like. Same goes for if anyone has an extra of either of the two gifts I did not get from Santakinz; the wig and scooter
Good Morning All ! Hope you all had a very nice Christmas Day yesterday…. and to those who are celebrating later this week … Merry Christmas ! QOS… I know you are anticipating the arrival of all your kids !! So exciting for you.. Last time all five of siblings got together as a family was 4 years ago.. RubyCube… thank you very much for my gifts… loved them ! moms… Did you catch any of the NBA games yesterday ?? Watched Lakers and GSW… LBJ left the game.. injured but Lakers were still able to win… Feel like I never need to eat again !! Have had enough food to last me at least a week ! Making a TO DO LIST for today… Hoping to get something constructive done Hope you all enjoy the day and celebrating the season with family and friends
I hope everyone is having a great end of 2018 and that you all have much health and happiness in the year ahead!
I wanted to stop in and thank the truly wonderful people who have continued to include me in random swaps and gifts and explain my absence from any posting. It was very shortly after I found gymbo’s that I had an experience that caused me to sharply limit my digital footprint. It had nothing to do with anyone here but unfortunately it became a necessity for my mental well-being. It was hard to realize that simple things like sharing small tidbits of my personal life could allow some people to engage in what I can only describe as bullying and stalking behavior. In purely clinical terms it was also interesting to learn how easy it can be for someone who knows you even a little to recognize you on-line from your writing style to small things you say about your life. By its nature a blog is simple free-wheeling thought and it was no longer something that felt safe for me for reasons I can’t really get into and I hope you can understand.
If you are not already on my FR list please fell free to add me. I have multiple old store rooms packed with stuff I don’t use and you never know what I might find from your list especially if you are looking for collection events, rares, old exclusives, gift box items etc.
Thank you for understanding and especially a big thanks to moms who has allowed me to keep hanging around on the fringes….
Merry After Christmas! I hope everyone had a great day yesterday! We ran out of daylight hours wanting to do everything all at once.
Thanks for the gifts, Ruby! Perfect, as usual! I added you as a friend, peanuts! I am also trying to limit my digital footprint. It is not easy! Thanks for the reminder about the hat, Momz! I got mine last night.
Not sure I want to try for that trophy. Seven games, yikes! I guess if I play against my own pets it might go fairly quickly …
Miracle, I forwarded what you sent me to Queen of Sheba. Don’t worry about the mix-up, lol! I also got mixed up and sent moms’ and april’s gifts to my own accounts! This is what happens when you have 435 friends on your phone. So moms and april, I will get your gifts out later today. And if SantaLurker missed anybody else, please speak up! SantaLurker still has plenty of groaning docks to pick through for presents.
So Queen of Sheba, that gift you got from me today is not from me, it’s from Miracle!
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. I did not, but that was to be expected, and on that note, thanks soooo much to everyone for the sympathy. It helped get me through the worst Christmas I’ve had in memory. (((hugs))) for this amazing blog! I don’t count you as internet friends, I count you as REAL friends.
I am not a fan of the times when webkinz names two things the same name. they have two holiday reindeer rockers and unfortunately some of the peeps in the trade room only have the other one. I did manage to get a unicorn wig though.
YAY, Miracle, thanks for sending! I’ll pop the lighthouse in for trade shortly here! We’ve been bustling about all day the 25th and 26th, leaving Grammie and Grampie’s, and settling in at Grandma and Grandpa’s for Christmas #2. It’s 10pm, and I’m finally getting some webkinz time. Opened the Sweet Spice Cat plush from my mom, that she went way out of her way to get (SO SOFT)- Kiddo has claimed it, and is sleeping with it now. He shipped with a few packs of trading cards- I was SO hoping for a bonus magical retriever or mystical panda, but no dice
Enjoying time with my mom- Kiddo is ALL about Grandma, and she’s loving it. I’m making beef stew from scratch tomorrow, and Grandma is baking cookies! grandpa just had knee replacement surgery, so he’s at home with us too, trudging his way through Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which is fun to watch too.
It is so nice to read such kindness on this blog. I am sending Happy New Year gifts to some of you from your wish lists and have sent a few friend requests ( I’m jem)…….. hope everyone has a wonderful new year!
Good Morning All Puma… Happy you are enjoying your visit with your family ! I am sure they are all happy to be spending time with your kiddo ! There is something magical about Christmas with a little kiddo to share the holiday with ! moms… sounds like you need a well deserved break !!! Hope you are able to get a good night’s sleep…. Head of the Department gave me a choice of 4 days while I am on vacation to come in and rearrange stock items on a storage cart she purchased for the clinic… Really ?? Planning on going in today … hope I can get it all done today.. dee… you must be really good at Bathtub Battles… One of my least favorite games… but have challenged Sophie Stockwell and she is worse than I am at that game…. Completed one challenge and will probably only do one more.
Received a beautiful hand made sewing project from my sister.. ( had commented on the pattern while we were in Amish Country recently… Can’t believe she sent for the pattern..fabric and completed it for Christmas… It is beautiful… Took it yesterday to have it framed… WOW .. nearly fell over when the framer added it all up !!!!!!!!! I didn’t really want to buy the STORE… just have it framed !! I guess I will say… MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ME !! LOL Good Morning WebkinzRUs…Glad you feel comfortable stopping in to say HI.. this is such a great place to belong to…feels like family here ! bepsy.. sorry but did not have the reindeer to send. gramma.. sounds like you are have a hectic holiday ! Hope you are enjoying your time with your family !! Lurker.. Very sorry you are have a rough time…so hard to lose a loved one .. much less during the Christmas Season.. Will continue to keep you in my prayers…. Despite struggling in RL… you spread your kindness and generosity to all of us here… Thank you Lurker ! You brighten our season.. Hope you all have a good day today… Temperature may reach 60 today !
It’s great to hear from you, WebkinzRUs! And I understand where you’re coming from – because of situations I’ve gone through in my real life, I’m also more careful with what I share about myself online. I just want you to know that regardless of whether you post or not, I’m glad to have a friend as kind and thoughtful as you ♥ Wishing you a happy and healthy New Year. Hugs!
Hey, Loop! In all the excitement on Christmas Eve, I forgot to mention this – you know all the foods from your December 19th spoilers (Decadent Minty Cocoa, Fruit Pizza, etc.) that you’re thinking will be new eStore Secret Recipes? Well if you’re right about them being new recipes (and I bet you will be!), I’ll be sure to send you a batch as soon as they’re published Hugs!
bepsy, I have a Reindeer Rocking Horse for you! Nothing needed in return
And OMG, thank you SO much for the gift, Secret Santakinz! I literally stared at the screen with my mouth gaping open, lol. You’re so thoughtful and generous! It was such a nice surprise, and I can hardly wait to open it ♥ Hugs!
oh yeah and frames…………my stepdad was an artist (he still is, but no longer my stepdad) and he cut all his own mattes and glass and used old barn wood for frames…………and charged the customer a pretty penny
dh made the frame for our bathroom mirror as i could not find a mirror that i liked………but i have paid for a frame that was way more than the price of the art…………never again without a coupon!
and i am making collard greens with leftover christmas ham. made some cornbread too and gonna have navy beans with it!
Just wanted to stop by and say a belated Merry Christmas and happy holidays to everyone here!!! I read through some of the comments on this post and saw that some of you had a rough Christmas this year, and wanted to offer my sympathies. The holidays are suppose to be filled with joy and love and everything good, so it’s hard when they turn out to be anything but. I’ve had my fair share of horrible Christmases, so I would know. This year was almost suspiciously mild and uneventful, though… So, I guess that’s something?
WebkinzRUs – Stay safe!!! I hope the situation you’ve been going through is either close to getting resolved or resolved by now. The Internet can be a scary place, but no one deserves to have their sense of safety and well-being taken away by someone else doing things and behaving in a manner they shouldn’t be.
Not sure when I’ll be on again next, but in case it isn’t in the next few days… Happy (almost) New Year! I declare the upcoming year should be all our best year yet!!!!!
Peeking in! Sure is busy around here and I’m totally exhausted.
Dee, that pan you got for Christmas is pretty cool!
Puma, I made the Chicken & Spinach pasta bake for Wednesday night! The kids loved it! Added triple spinach this time, double the tomatoes and I doubled something else, too, but I’m too tired to remember what it was. I made a double batch, so guess what is for lunch tomorrow? Glad that they like it! Ha ha!
Tonight I did pinto beans in the instant pot and they turned out delicious! Another big group of people. Still haven’t had all five of my kids here at the same time. But on Saturday morning that should happen since that is when we are opening our Christmas gifts.
Wish I could address all the comments, but I need to update my wish list and head to bed. I sure appreciate all the gifts! Thanks Miracle & all the rest of you. I need to record who is who because I’m confused. Anyway, I am thankful for the gifts!
Hi all. Merry Christmas week! I’ve been lurking forever, but this is only my 2nd post. I have extra of most of the holiday things if anyone needs (wigs, scooters, windows, rockers). And happy to have anyone add me – I’m foxblox.
Good Morning All !! Hope all of you with ominous weather last night have “weathered” the storms. Had some very windy conditions and lots of rain but nothing severe… Queen of Sheeba.. Hope you have a great time with all of your kids and family celebrating the week of Three Kinds Day ! Not sure but is that day also known as Little Christmas ? Happy New Year Otterkinz.. Hope you have enjoyed the Holiday season… dee. the piece of art work I took to have framed was a fabric appliqued piece that spelled out HALLOWEEN… Each letter had some kind of a little “doo dad” like tiny buttons.. bell for witches boots.. so I guess I wanted to take it somewhere that would preserve and frame it like a professional… Used to do cross stitch.. when my eyes were better.. and always had the pieces framed professionally… I don’t think I would ever attempt such a project but I am sure I will love the finished product for years to come… Good Morning foxblox ! moms… went into work yesterday… Big Boss came to help… or direct is a better word…shuffling around “my” work space which has been my “room” for past 8 years at least… Called my drawers a “hot mess” .. Didn’t know whether to laugh or growl !!! Anyway.. we pulled everything out of all cupboards.drawers and carts…. rearranged.. checked for outdated items.. and put everything back !!! ?? Upcoming inspection which is why all the fuss.. Taking my Mom to lunch today if she is able to go out and about.. She would like to go to local eatery which serves Lake Erie Perch… usually pretty good. Mist .. your comment made me chuckle ! good morning gramma ! have things settled down your way ? Holidays are always so hectic but really hate when Christmas is over !! Good Morning to you Cheese ! Have a nice day one and all !
WOOOOW! I just discovered my gift from Secret Santakinz!! (I turned off all notifications on my phone in an effort to wean off it, and I often forget to check my emails daily!) O.O I’M SO EXCITED! How does Secret Santakinz know exactly the right gift?? *squee* Thank you Secret Santakinz!
And a HUGE thank you to Emma and RubyCubes for Super Fun Kinzmail last night. I may have yelped with glee.
Kiddo and I adopted the Spice Cat last night- Cinnamon! He moved into a rustic room with bunk beds with his sister, Nutmeg. <3
We're going to that great pet store today (the one that sells Webkinz plushes), AND seeing an old old school friend of mine- and she wants a webkinz! Maybe I can give her my helper code!
