  1. A terrific FGM from WV sent me a wonderful:clappackage. It included recipes for doggie biscuits & good doggy cookies, and most importantly, enough fun-size Butterfingers to last me at least a week. PLUS a couple of packs of Butterfinger-flavored hot chocolate mix. (I never heard of that before...) AND patterns for knit and crochet scarves. I have been blessed by the butterfinger angel. Thanks to you again, my wonderful FGM in WV!
  2. I know it's too late to vote on the poll, but is it too late to join in a swap?
  3. Today my husband opened a package that came in the mail for me. He normally doesn't do that, but he was hungry - and what did he pull out but a package of fun-size BUTTERFINGERS!!! :cheer I managed to save them from him - reminded him he has to eat healthy and I don't. (...welllllll) Then he found cookie cutters shaped like bones and a dog - for me to make my doggie treats!:clap And then he pulled out a skein of Christmassy I Love This Yarn:cheer:clap. And also a nice note from a FGM somewhere in the wilds of KS. I'm making afghan squares now and will find a suitable pattern to show off the red, green & white - it feels so soft yet sturdy! What a wonderful package of gifts! And so thoughtful to include the dog treat cutters - thanks so much to L in KS!!!:hug
  4. I'd like to thank a great FGM from Kansas who sent me a link to a site with so many doggie treat recipes that i'll be trying them for years! :cheer I don't cook for humans, but I'll bake for our 5 furry fluffy fast and fearsome doggy family! :yes:yes
  5. Thanks for the lovely Christmas card from my west coast elf crew member!! Brightened up my day!
  6. I'll give it a try! But with my habits, I'll probably be so far in the negative hole that you'll never get me back to daylight... Will wait to start until Jan. 1.
  7. Today I received a small package in the mail. A brown envelope - hmmmm. And LO! When I opened it, a red felt circle with crocheted thread snowflake ornament jumped into my hands! And then, just as I was quivering with anticipation, I pulled out a pack of BUTTERFINGERS! Oh how sweet!!! I immediately had to hide them, because my husband started reaching..... But I know where they are - just waiting for my next attack of peanutbutter/chocoholism to strike. Thank you to my dear ELF from LITITZ in Lancaster County PA!!!
  8. But - can't you just go into Wikipedia and change their definition?
  9. A very artistic and creative elf in Canada sent me a lovable Santa pattern to crochet! Since I am also known as "Mrs Claus," I collect lots of different kinds of Santas. Thank you so much!
  10. annie, i am praying for you and your husband, that you both will have the strength to get through each day as it comes. do you have a hospice in your area? they will provide nursing and daily needs care for him, also give you a break by sending a companion volunteer to sit with him (I do this for a hospice here in PA) and just be company, read, sing, pray - whatever he needs. and also do the same for you. you don't have to do it all alone, annie. i know you both must be feeling pretty bad and sad and helpless, etc - but accept any help that is offered to you. God does not want you to go through this by yourself. your friend, sharon
