Did we ever come to a consensus on whether we are going to wait until Christmas, or open our packages when they arrive?
I think we decided that you can do either way depending on what works best for you (Christmas being so busy and all) as long as you post photos :)

All the kitties look so excited about their presents! I hope the one I sent is okay, I've never really sent a package before and it was pretty stuffed...

This is so fun! I'm so glad I got to be a part of it!

I could have just kept buying things! I was like oh I still have room in my box hahaha so I know what you mean. Can't wait to hear if my secret santa likes it!

So just as I was about to head out -- "La Poste" arrived, handing me a big wrapped present.

I brought it inside, and all the sleepyheads suddenly appeared.

Jez helped to unwrap.

She had to make sure she knows who it's from, so a close inspection of the card.

Livvy also checked.

Jez thinks this is cool.

Jez: "DIBS!"

Livvy: "Iz mine."

Once I'd spread out all the lovingly wrapped and labelled packages, Livvy decided Jez can keep the box. She keeps the presents.

More in Part 2

Part 2

Pixie also wanted to see, and Livvy -- who normally runs from Pixie -- actually swatted her!!

There was lots and lots and lots!

Pixie wants to keep it all.

All the goodies :)

I tried to get a pic of the lovely dragon pen holder, but there was a Jezzie butt always in the way!

There were toys, nibbles, smelly things, horsey treats, a soft blankie, a diary and a wonderful little dragon!

Thank you, Secret Santa (And Chevy and Caber!), from Silke, Pixie, Jez, Livvy, Oz and Stormy!!

I got another package from Amazon today....I think its from my Secret Santa? It has nothing in it but the the gift. No cards or messages, so I added it to the other package. Maybe I won’t wat to give it to them after all. Will decide tomorrow I guess...

All sleighs are en route or already landed. Thanks to @admin for hosting such a great site so we can do events like this.
I know that the gift exchange is very meaningful to the members. It is so fun to see all the cats getting their gifts.
