There are several people on the list that have not reported in their status yet. Remember folks, it is important to report in when you order your gift and receive your gift. The second donation for the Papa Elf Special has arrived. A third vendor has pledge a generous donation but its going to be close if I will receive it in time before I leave for my Christmas travels. That being said, I may have to wait until I get back on Jan 3rd to ship out the Papa Elf Special. That being said, the winner of this years Papa Elf Special has been selected!

Sugar Cookies of course!
Correct :)

Some of which will be the cookies for the Papa Elf Special. Now if the final donation does not get here in time I will make a fresh batch before I mail out the PES in January.

Speaking of which, still need pledges for shipping :D

Just received the e-mail that said the final piece of the PES should arrive today :D
Did I mention about shipping pledges? Do I need to recall Santa's Sleigh? :D

Also, The winner didn't notice he won yet.

I thought of something. If I wasn't such an honest elf, with all the packages coming for secret Santa and Papa Elf Special I could order stuff for myself and Mrs. Elf would never know.

Papa Elf called me at 0100 the other night. After the usual, "is your wife there" "what are you wearing" questions and heavy breathing, he asked if my Stinky Santa gift had arrived. Hmmm, hadn't seen it....
Dug through the wife's Amazon pile and there was a mystery box addressed to me. The box had been opened, but the wife never mentioned it.
For those of you that ordered through us, we are almost caught up.
