Had a visitor today. Yay! This is always the best group build, and you can't outclass Brandon, awesome GB host. Thanks for all your effort.

Mine was ordered today and is now in the hands of the blue elves. I received mine Tuesday, but didn't walk to the apartment mailbox area and retrieve it until yesterday. Part of me is like, the heck with it, just open the darn thing and the other part is, just be patient and wait. To quote Inigo Montoya, I hate waiting. It remains unopened.

Correct, but I know it's making a long journey so I'm not sweating it.

Still waiting on mine, but it has a long way to go so it will take a bit longer

I have my spreadsheet updated with the latest info. It looks like a few of the kits are going to be last minute arrivals, possilbly late. For those that don't show on time I will post up what the kit is so you can open it with us digitally on Xmas day.

Just got home and found that Sinterklaas stuck around an extra week to drop something off for me. I did have to give his horse an apple, but I am sure that it will be worth it.

So I take it Stnterklaas is ole St Nicholas, Santa Claus, Papai Noel, Yul Tomten, Joulupukki, Dun Che Lao Ren, Ded Moroz, Krismas Vader, Father Christmas?

Traditions are cool.
