Look what Marlene sent me! I asked about them when she first showed them several weeks ago. So, being the kind friendly person she is - she up and decided to send some for my Christmas tree!

Then I get the box and here she sent other neat goodies! Stickers for my packages, two crosses (one with ribbon for me to try), the puddings, and a cross stitch kit! The puddings are knitted. Something completely beyond me! I'm not sure why they are called puddings, but won't they be absolutely adorable on my tree?

I think the white envelope in the back might be a Christmas card. Which is something I have been thinking about. I like to send Christmas cards. I don't make them - I just like to send them. And receive them too! Which brings me to this - may I have your addresses? I would like to send Christmas cards to you! Yes, all of you! And maybe you could send me one too.

See, I am the type of person that can't wait for the mailman at Christmas time. If I get a card from our family, the orthodontist, insurance man, or even the paper boy - it goes up! I think having cards from all my blogger friends would be a wonderful thing.

Also, then I have your addresses --- and that brings me to another thing. I have been thinking that in 2011 - I want to RAK my friends. I can't make promises that I will get one RAK out a month but I want to try.

I hope to hear from all of you - Denise

Awesome idea!! I was just thinking the other day about doing the 2011 RAK thing. I dont have any address though and it isn't such a surprise if you say "May I have your address" lol.

They are called Christmas puddings, because when you pour brany sauce over your hot real pudding, they should look like this creation, and every one knows you need a sprig of holly with berries on top. I am so glad you like them!!

What an awesome package. I thinkt the puddngs are so cute, they make me think of England. Anyone who has something yummy like a pudding hanging from their Christmas tree is alright in my book!

Your christmas puddings are cute! Your RAK idea is a neat one too.

Will someone explain how a Christmas Pudding tastes . . . is it sweet or savory? I have seen them in pictures but have always forgotten to ask my British friends about it.

I hope you RAK yourself silly next year.

Christmas cards too . . . you really ARE the woman!

I can remember as a child waiting, in the summer, for the mailman to come with my summer Weekly Reader . . . I wanted one everyday. Today, it is still the same . . .I want to open something from the mailman. AND, every once in a while I will actually write an honest to goodness letter to someone instead of an email . . . and they are so pleased . . . that personal touch is so important.

You had a great mail day! That was very sweet of Marlene :o)

You're definitely getting a Christmas card from me! We're still trying to figure out how we can do what we want to do economically.

What a nice package of goodies! I have never tasted "Christmas Pudding" but hear about it all the time. May have to google it and find a receipe for this year!
