First of all our Ruby Apple must love your Wesley, she jumped in the box and stayed there the whole time.

I was super excited right away about the sugar skull stocking!! Stocked literally full of goodies for all of us, and a small army of Applejacks!

Next I opened the small extra package, and I am assuming @CJ Thimble Bright was involved, I love them both!! Of course AJ got confiscated right away...

As I worked my way through the packages I found so many wonderful things. I now have a Medley, a TE Locket and a baby Moondancer! They are so beautiful and happy to be in my herd now.

Now for the fun extras....a Harry Potter mug that shows the Marauder's map when hot, an awesome cinch sack and ornament with nightmare before Christmas, 2 Harry Potter blind bags of Ron and Snape ornaments, Hershey kisses galore, some delicious coffee for me and hubby & SO many Applejacks for Porter's army! I love everything so much! He had a ball opening each and every one wrapped separate, just laughing the whole time. He wouldn't let me take his picture. He especially loved the seapony version.

A huge thank you to @Tak and Eevee for bringing some fun and laughter to this Christmas! We are going to be eating kisses for weeks!!
Squee! We're so happy you like it! E was insistent that we get the seapony. I'm glad you like the pony ornaments, too. :snowman:

Okay, my turn!! I've had a crazy 48 hours so I can finally sit and share my goodies from the fabulous @OctoberMoon :santa:
It actually showed up early yesterday morning, what a great way to start my day!! I had my morning tea and opened my lovely gifts. Such pretty unicorn wrapping and a card that cracked me up! :xmastree:

IMG_6279.JPG


The first thing I opened was this puzzle, and promptly started putting it together. I can't help myself, I'm a puzzle addict. Isn't it cute!!

IMG_6280.JPG


Gift after gift I opened, each one a wonderful surprise! Here are my pony goodies, puzzle, 2 pocket pals (tied to the trees like ornaments, how cute), sticker and shower cap! Nothing I love more than crossing stuff off my long accessories list!! Thank you so much :xmashug:

IMG_6281.JPG


On to the extras, so many fantastic extras! I can't wait to make the unicorn cheesecake tarts, aren't they adorable!! Feel like I need to throw a pony party! This lovely Gingerbread artwork, drawn by October's son, Porter. Isn't it pretty! I've got it displayed in my pony room, I'll have to take another picture to show it displayed :) Some great socks! Can never have too many socks, they are my only way of expressing myself under my boring hospital scrubs I wear everyday *blah*, cute unicorn ornament, some gingerbread scented!!!!! gingerbread ornaments! Have you ever seen such a thing!? an ornament craft kit, the perfect thing to relax and entertain me for 30 minutes. Yummy goodie bags full of Reeses trees, that may have been my breakfast yesterday morning :unsure: a new recipe I can't wait to try!!! It sounds delish and different, when you cook as much as I do it's hard to find unique recipes, this is unusual but sounds really good! I'm looking forward to making it and will report back! I've seen those sweet potato cakes and know just what you're talking about but never bought them or really noticed them but when you mentioned it I knew exactly what you were talking about. Last but not least a gingerbread man Pez. I really did LOL when I opened it, just perfect for me and with a limited flavor Pez candy, sugar cookie.....awesome!

@OctoberMoon your cat is adorable. I hope no Wesley fur got in the box. He's always interested in what I'm doing. He schippervises.
Thanks! She loved that box. As you can see she does too, she is always up in our business when we get something new.

I came home from work to find a giant package in our Canada post box. I was super excited, because I knew it was from my bestie, @Skybreeze
She did not disappoint. Can we talk about the packaging? Beautiful, but good Lord woman, PUT DOWN THE TAPE. It took 30 minutes to unwrap and I needed scissors!

I’ve been chasing this Groucho princess and Talk a lot for the last couple years. So happy to complete two sets.


The Butterick pattern is to make a stuffed Grumpy bear. I’m dying to make one.

I’m a sock addict, but Sky knows I’m an outdoor girl, so she got me awesome wool socks. So pretty too

I can’t wait to build my Kit Kat cabin.

My card came with Pony stickers.

The Cabbage patch was one I didn't have and she's a red head, which is a bonus.

@Skybreeze you're pretty epic. @Cactusflower that is an awesome box! Congratulations on so much awesome. That paper has llamas? So cute! Those are really nice socks, too, if I may say so. I'm happy for you! :xmashug:

I loved the paper and wanted to save it (I reuse wrap whenever possible), but Skybreeze is a tape monster!
I like things to look pretty and in order for that to happen one must use a lot of tape and glue. You can find that wrapping paper at Michael’s it’s amazing, I kinda want more to hoard for next year. I also have the matching ribbon for it as well.

@Gingerbread - Wowza what a great box! I too love the socks and the little tree’s with the pocket pals. <3

Looks like everyone’s boxes are all looking great so far!! I too will have a brag in a day or two when I have an opportunity to sit and photograph things. :D
