Did I miss this? What happens on the 19th?

I'm not exactly innocent of this myself as Gamefly had XCOM-EU for 20$ earlier in the week and I couldn't resist. But my Santee had either bought one of the games on their wishlist or not kept their wishlist up to date hence Rezzy got a surprise gift of Dawnguard since I could see he had Skyrim but not that add-on (he wasn't my santee).
So keep your wishlist up to date and don't buy stuff on it.

I'm a bad santee :(

No worries, like I said I am/was guilty of it too with XCOM, it was just a bit of a letdown when I went to gift it and it said you already owned it.
Rezzy was pleased though so it all worked out.

My mysterious Stanta sent me the tracking info for my package.

I had a package waiting for me this evening and I've got some new toys to play with at work. Thanks for everything Santa Eezy!

Spoiler:
The super strong fridge pins are super strong!

It seems my Santee's gift will arrive a bit later than expected, very sorry. It seems that there was a delay in shipping or something, I am starting to not like USPS.

Gift is currently out for delivery. That was faster than expected.

Part one of my gift has arrived! Thanks and I am looking forward for the second part, I'll post pictures when able.

Part two from oilypenguin is here! They're perfect!

And the 7 Wonders expansion will see use this weekend at my sister's graduation party. Many thanks, Brian!

And to my own victim: http://www.packagetrackr.com/track/1...

=)

He talks! As soon as I was assigned you, I knew what to get you =)

My Stantee's parcel is en route. Hopefully it will be well received.

Skeletonframes! You are not forgotten. The final piece came today unfortunately I wasn't able to get it out in time. Still getting it out on Monday should be okay, and just before Christmas.

I love that we're apparently consulting with Cthulhu for the mechanism for bot detection during account registration.

To whomever is my Secret Stanta, thank you so much! Will definately use the leather punches! And I have always wanted to play Dungeon Command, now to find someone to play with me:) Now to the pictures:

Opening the box:

And a handwritten note:

Not 1, Not 2, but 3 presents!

A leather stamp of a dragon, sweet, just one of the many I keep meaning to buy when I am at Tandy Leather!

Now the medium size present:

Small letter stamps! Another stamp set I keep meaning to get, I have plenty of the large ones, but not the small set, well I do now!

Finally, the large package.

Dungeon Command?!?! Sweet, I've wanted to try this!

Now to get someone to play it with me!

Thanks again secret Stanta, whoever you are!

A Holiday Island pullover? Do you live out there?

Ah. I live about an hour or so away. Drove through it just for the heck of it earlier this year.

Ok, I am seriously amazed at how good this thread worked out. I can only hope that my Secret Santa appreciated their gift as much as I like mine. Next year I am definitely going all out since I got a lot of gifts, and I only sent one gift wrapped present to my victim.

Anyway, to the pictures!

What is this...?

Aw, such a sweet sentiment on a card...

Candy! Good way to start. I will enjoy these

Coffee! Whole bean! Mmmmmmmmm I will enjoy these immensely as well.

Bad sci fi books! I love them. Seriously.

F*ck the what?! Greatest gift ever. Seriously. I have my own Gypsy! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH SO EXCITED.

Thank you, Secret Santa. I know who you are, and you know who you are, so... just thank you. This makes me very happy.

Hmm. Got a UPS notice with a package that requires a sig.

They'll be back Monday, glad I'll be home all day!

So, I received a package from "Bits and Pieces" yesterday, but it was addressed to someone who doesn't live here. Is this a holiday mistake, or is this from my Secret Santa? (Right address, but wrong name.)

Dear Stantee,
I shipped your gifts this morning, since it has taken me so long, I paid the extra so that USPS says you should get it by Monday. I also have tracking and I am hoping even though USPS tracking is generally worthless that I can track the packages andmake sure.

~Rains

p.s. I hope you like what I made you, it is based off of something you had asked me about a long time ago.(As in I don't remember how long ago) The other item you can probably figure out

I love seeing all the unboxing pics! I feel like the puppetmaster watching his puppets... uh, wait. I mean I feel like the brain parasite that controls its victims into merriment... that sounds wrong too.

I'll get back to you.

No worries here. I still have gifts that are wrapped sitting in my backseat waiting to go to the post office. Part my fault and part work's fault. I'm leaving early Monday, so I can ship them then, Santee.

My Santee should have a package waiting for them.

So, if you are located somewhere between Bangor, ME and Key West, FL and expecting a Secret Santa package, check for one tonight!

Also, I received a second package that I believe is from my Secret Santa.

Actually the second package was a replacement order for something I ordered months ago. Sorry for the confusion.

I'm still waiting on a few items for my Santee to get delivered to my abode before they head out. They may not make it by Christmas, but I'll do my best.

Thought I may have gotten something but instead it was my Dreadball kickstarter. So that's cool too!

Models to assemble.

Dear Santee - First package is away. Hopefully will arrive by Christmas, but apologies if it doesn't!

Dear Stantee,
I show one of two boxes is currently in Baltimore, MD out for delivery, you should recieve it today. THe other box, which was shipped same day, same expediency I show no update since Friday, hopefully it will arrive today as well as I paid to have both delivered by today.

Stanta Rainsmercy

Stantee: Package is winging its way to you. I didn't request a signature for it, so keep an eye on your porch.

Today's the day my Santee gets some goodies, and per UPS.com it's out for delivery. Here's a little something to watch while you wait.

To my Stanta, your gifts have arrived. I'm not going to open it yet, as I am still wrapping and getting my Stantee's gifts out the door. I feel like I should get that done first. But I did want to let you know that they made it.

Can't wait!
