Thanks for the nice 'scraper'. I sometimes listen to zydeco and now I can play along.

Yep musical instruments, the English horn, the French horn, and the cornholio.

Forgot to include the cool HelloKitty sticker book in the picture.

Each of the little tins has something yummy inside ...

Peppermint creams, dark Ferrero Roches, exotic chocolates, Ghirardelli Squares ... and the little square one contained the coolest glass Santa!

The package shipped from Indiana, so I suspect nirvana, although I don't know if she were playing. Of course, someone may have just been travelling through Indiana (monster, did you go to a hockey game there?) ... so I really don't know who my SS was, but I am genuinely grateful! Thank you for making Christmas happy!

My Secret Santa package arrived on Christmas eve, and just in time, because the items in it came in very handy, since my supply has been dwindling - Christmas Candles!! Thank you Secret Santa!! I haven't tried the instant snow yet, but will get back with a report soon. Im still recuperating from having my family over on Christmas day - the cleaning beforehand and then the drinking afterwards wiped me out! But I still loved it - having my brothers families at my house is the only Christmas gift I ever ask for.

Very nice, Pico. Those candles should keep you illuminated for a long time.

Yeah, I collect candles. I forget to use them though - lol. We had an ice/snow a storm few years back that knocked our power out for a night. We decided to brave it and not spend the night in a motel. I got all my candles out and lit them - roughly 50. They kept the livingroom/diningroom at a nice 58 degrees!

Forgot to say thanks for Christmas cards which several dwellars sent to me. I probably should have at least let them know I'd received them, but have been distracted with other stuff.

So, thanks to you. They made me smile. I still have 'em. If I find the mood I'll take pics and post. But no promises :p
