Secret Santa Gifts Have Arrived Yahhhhhh Whooooooo/ Poor Doggies

Suzanne from Colorado Lady is the hostess of this fun swap each year.  This is my second year to do this. Last year I ended up with a new friend from the swap.  Well actually two, Edna and Pogo.  What fun it is to be a secret Santa.  Last year I had fun trying to figure out who my Santa was.  All I know this year is that she is from Texas and very generous.  I can tell she read a lot of my posts. 
I have never had a M. E, Doll.  I actually thought it was something else inside the box.  I was in love with the box and had no idea what was inside.  Well, I love this sweet girl.  She will look pretty special with my other girls.  I will show you that in another post.  Next there was this paper doll book.  She had to have read about my love of finding a Shirley Temple Doll...........love love this book.
 
 
 
I doubt if she realized this but since we have the new floors, our feet get cold.  Carpet does make a difference.  I have been thinking that I need slippers.  Well, check these babies out.  They look like terry Mary Janes and they have a sole.  Just what I needed.
 
 
Next there was a box of chili seasoning right from the great state of chili.  I can't wait to try this. 
 
 
There were some silver bell earrings as well.  I have been wanting some silver earring to go with my silver Origami Jewelry....so once again this lady from Texas knows her stuff.
 
And.....here is the cute box that the doll was in. 
 
 
A cute big Santa mug with some life savors in it.  I love the bigger mugs for my morning coffee,  Life savors.........those come in handy when you are always in some kind of predicament. 
 
 
And here are my furry babies..................
 
They didn't want to get up today.  I don't usually dress them but they got haircuts last week.  They shaved Piper, the Springer.  Except for his ears and a tiny bit of feathers on his legs and tummy.  We didn't tell them to do that.  We wouldn't have this time of the year.  He was just shaking until we put this jacket on.  Now Izzy, was trimmed short but not shaved.  I always like how this groomer does her haircut.  The other groomer does Piper better.  I guess we will have to take them to different places to get what we want. 

THANK YOU SWEET LADY FROM TEXAS.  YOU MAKE A GREAT SANTA.  I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHO YOU ARE.  ALSO THANKS SUZANNE FOR HOSTING THIS.  IT HAS TO BE ALOT OF WORK AS THERE ARE LOTS OF PARTICIPANTS.

Christmas came early this year for you. Wow, what a great Santa you got Debby.
It will be hard to top that. Merry Christmas

I don't blame the fur babies for wanting to stay in bed. It's cold everywhere.
Stay safe and warm.
Hugs,
JB
