Two lovely ladies I paired for this swap both came from Canada...
but little did I know that they lived about 2 hours apart.
Debbie & Susan made arrangements to swap their sacks last week in person... & they very thoughtfully shared a few pic's with all of us.
How exciting for both of them to actually meet one another...
& I believe they are both gOOd friends now as well.
I'm sure Santa is very happy with these two helpers...

The MaiLMaN is delivering parcels all over the world... yippee....
26 elves  have received so far... & a few more parcels are still on their way...
but I haven't heard from everyone yet...
SO... if you have your parcel sitting waiting for you under the tree...please check the sidebar to see if I have you marked as RECD... if not ...then a quick comment or email will rectify it.

OPeNinG DaY cannot be announced until ALL parcels have been RECD.

on your parcel to arrive is so exciting isn't it?

Dont forget to let me know ( by comment or email) that you have RECEIVED your parcel.

Check your name on the sidebar... 
it should have REC'D beside it.

21 elves have received their gift parcel.

Perhaps just a little squeezing or squishing of your package is allowed...

But be sure to wait until OPENING DAY.
