Santa Is No Secret Anymore

Suzanne, Coloradolady, has afforded us the opportunity to be a part of a Secret Santa Soiree the past few years.  It is so much fun and anticipation for the participates.  However, it is a tremendous amount of work and time for Suzanne. I enjoy the SSS and appreciate her efforts.

I was not sure if my SS package would get here before Christmas with all the weather everyone was having. It is no secret what Santa can do.  SHE was able to lift off and arrive safely at my house. I know who my SS is. My first clue was the location she mailed this card from, PA. Having read a lot of mystery books, I did my home work. Of all the participates, there was only one that lived in PA. That special lady is none other than DebbieM at "Designs by Debbie and Dixie Too. (http://debbiedixieblog.blogspot.com)

As you can see, she was very successful that day seeking my gifts. Debbie, I truly appreciate all the time and work that you did to make my SS gift such a wonderful package. Everything you selected is just perfect for me. You have been a wonderful SS.  Thank you, thank you so much for you thoughtfulness and generosity.

Seven individual packages chosen just for me.


A special greeting card.


Included was the lovely handmade, crochet scarf. What a nice surprise.  It is very versatile in the way you can wear it. Anything that someone takes the time to personally make, takes on whole different meaning to me. It truly means a lot. I tried to put it on the way suggested, but not sure if I did it correctly.  It is so warm and really feels good these cold days. Love it as I stay cold.



Four of the neatest bingo daubers.  There are several us old seniors that gather to play once or twice a week. Win or lose, we have a good time and enjoy each others company. Wait till they see my new daubers! Never have seen any like them. Debbie,  love them. 

One of my most favorite candy ever. That is why I enjoy eating at the Olive Garden. They give you some of these after each meal.


I enjoy the benefits of a Keurig coffee maker. It is also great for tea or hot cocoa. Was down to just three cocoas when this box arrived. Perfect timing and another great choice.

 No doubt Santa must have thought I had been a good senior as she included two nice candles. The large one is a elegant soy, gardenia and the small vanilla. Both are my favorite fragrances. Thank you again, Debbie for a super job shopping for a total stranger.

Merry Christmas, LaVoice, it is none other than your Secret Santa 2013!! I'm glad you enjoyed all your gifts and you do look great in the cowl scarf! I'm so happy you liked it. Have fun at bingo and I hope you get a big win using those new daubers. :)
I didn't realize I was the only Secret Santa from PA. I still haven't figured out who my Secret Santa was. I'm a Postmaster and these days are my busiest, I just want to come home, eat dinner, sit on the sofa and rest my feet!!! Wishing you the best holiday season ever!!! Ho Ho Ho!!!

You and I received some wonderful gifts. I think I have a clue but not 100 percent who my Secret Santa was. She gave me a Spode tea pot for one and that made me smile! Plus other sweet treats! I enjoyed buying gifts for my SS Edna in Massachusetts. It was quite fun! Suzanne does work so hard. We are all grateful to her. Hugs Anne

PS LOve the scarf. Pretty like you!
