Hope all you ladies have had a nice holiday. We have New Year's Eve and that's it. I am a little glad. I thought that I would update my wish list as I have received quite a few books off my list over the last few months, thanks in part to some savvy partners. I hope this helps anyone who receives my name. Looking forward to the New Year and great friendships to continue. Have a Happy New Year all.

Thank You Shawnee

Merry Christmas, Shawnee!!!

I got my Christmas gift early from you. You included the Jan Karon book that I wanted to read and also the Debbie Macomber book. Also all the yummies I can enjoy while reading, including popcorn, vanilla coffee, and brownies. Then when I'm done with that and need to wash my hands I can use the hand cream that you included. The booklight, bookmark, and note pads will really come in handy. It seems like no matter where I am I need to write something down and these notepads always come in handy. In the one notepad there is a pen included which I will add to my growing pen collection. I love to collect writing pens. I'm afraid that my granddaughter will grab the crochet magazine. She is learning to crochet and will love the magazine. We'll have to share that.Again, thank you so much for such a great package and have a great Christmas. Jayne
