Ok everyone, I have matched off all with their buddy and you will be receiving your emails within the next 2 days. Sorry I cannot narrow it down, DH is off work and doesn't like me not spending time with him when he is here.

Ok, I'm a little scared doing this, in fear that I am going to stuff this up majorly, but so far so good, I suppose.

Anyway, how did we want to send our books off, with a clue as to who sent them or just a name? I'm easy going with whatever anyone wants to choose.

Hey Julie :)

I had a word document with all the info I needed to not confuse myself, when people received there book I made their text red to keep track of things, you might like to do something similar :)

Yeah, I'm doing that, but I just still feel that I am going to stuff something up. It's funny, I have almost sent them all off, but I'm waiting for someone to tell me that I sent them their own details. :lol:

I just need to have more faith in myself.

Julie I think you are doing a fantastic job and thanks for organising it. Im lucky the beads is an easy one to organise hehehehe.

Im easy about knowing who it is from or having a clue.... But you did say in your first post that you didnt want to steal the thunder of secret santa so maybe we should just do the card like you say.

I think it would actually be nice if we wrote in the books. I love it when ppl write little messages to my kids when they give a book.

Maybe that is something we can do.....
