Hope y'all are having fun with this!


Had/Having a WONDERFUL time, Brandy (even if my SecretSantee didn't post pics of what I sent. . sniff.. but it's all about the giving anyways, innit?).


thank you SO much for the effort and work it took to organize.


I wish you and your family a very Happy Holiday!

I keep checking every day the website where I am suppose to find the live tracking of the present I sent but there are no updates. I really hope it gets there by tomorrow!


Don't forget there have been massive storms across parts of the US -- so that greatly impacted shipping for many folks.


(I had a package sit in Dallas for TWELVE days, and absolutely no tracking updates on the UPS site. It scanned in, then nothing for 12 days . . then it suddenly showed up and they updated the site after the fact).

As promised, I opened my gift today! Thank you to Carsten Anderson of CPRundown.com for my gifts- I LOVE them! Also a thank you to Brandy for putting the exchange together, as well as to Robb and Elissa for allowing this awesome event to happen here on TPR. This was my first year participating, and I will definitely be signing up for the 2014 exchange!


And now, here are the pictures:


Let's see what's inside...


Very nice! Thank you for the warm Christmas greetings!


Thanks, Carsten! Everyone- go follow CP Rundown! I know I will!


Here we have some pamphlets celebrating the 50th anniversary of the CP & Lake Erie RR. There's some great info inside! It shows a timeline of Cedar Point's trains!


Maps from Cedar Point, Canada's Wonderland, and Michigan's Adventure! This is great- I'm trying to expand my collection, and this is my first Michigan's Adventure map! Now I have almost all of the Cedar Fair parks!


Seasons 1 & 3 of Breaking Bad! I never really got into this show while it was on (never had the time!), so I'm glad I'll have the opportunity to check it out now! Thank you so much for all of the awesome gifts! Happy ChrisHanKwanSivus to everyone!

Opened a very Random box of gifts today! It was great! I will get pictures up later today or tomorrow when I have more time.


The gift I sent was going far away and the Postal service didn't seem to think it was going to be a problem getting it there by today but we all know how that goes. Hopefully it made it.

It almost killed me, but I managed to keep all presents unopened until ChrisHanKwanSivus morning. And my Secret Santa, who hails from Williamsburg, VA, came through with AWESOME! Thanks so much, SecSan, and again, Merry ChrisHanKwanSivus to all!


Gift One! This super-cool "snow"-filled Busch Gardens ornament, which complimented perfectly this year's TPR ornament!


Gift Two! I love BGW and I've never been there during their Christmas celebrations (but have really enjoyed the many TPR BGW trip reports during the holidays). This rad mug helps bring a little holiday spirit to warm and sunny SoCal and will urge me to get back East and see Christmas Town for myself some day soon.


Gift Three! I had never heard of Mama Steve's before getting this magnet. Googled it. This is now a must-do on my next visit to Williamsburg. Because PANCAKES.


Gift Four! This book came at the perfect time; I just finished reading Marty Sklar's new book and needed a novel to follow it up. I've never read Christopher Moore, but this sounds fantastic, a humorous take on "King Lear." This is what the back cover promises: "...a twisted and insanely funny tale of a moronic monarch and his deceitful daughters – a rousing story of plots, subplots, counterplots, betrayals, war, revenge, bared bosoms, unbridled lust... and a ghost..." This is right in my wheelhouse. And here are titles of some of his other books: "Bloodsucking Fiends," "The Stupidest Angel," and "Island of the Sequined Love Nun." I have a feeling I will be reading all of these books as well. Thanks again, Santa; YOU ROCK!
