Fed Ex Packages

Some of you might not have received your packages on time due to weather conditions across the nation. Fed Ex will be open until noon on Christmas Day. You might be able to check with the nearest Fed Ex to see if your package has arrived and pick it up if you can get there safely. If road conditions are bad, please use your discretion and be safe. We do apologize if the weather elements has caused any delays.

My wife, son, and I were recently driving through the Grande Ronde Valley in North Eastern Oregon and here is a picture of the road in front of us. The wind was gusting and blowing snow, causing white out conditions! We made it home safely and have stayed home since.

Please have a Merry Christmas!

Soldier's Christmas Wreath Comment

This is a comment we received recently from a soldier in Iraq that tugs at the heart strings!

"Hi Judy, Just wanted you to know how much our boys in Iraq have enjoyed the wreath. Apparently one of the Air Force fellas is from up your way and recognized your company and could name all the greens in the wreath. The guys take turns watering the wreath every day, depending on who is flying, and who has a moment. Even some Iraqis (that are our friends) have enjoyed the beautiful greens. Your wreath took exactly 1 week to get there and really brightens up Camp Victory (in Baghdad) as the colors there are not green, but mostly gray and tan (old buildings and broken rubble). They also received some colored Christmas lights from a friend back here and are doing their best to keep spirits up. Thank you - please let your team know how important their work is!" - Karin

Spreading Christmas Cheer

This has been one of Flying Cloud Gifts best years ever, thanks to loyal customers who have been with us over a decade! This blog will serve as a resource to our clients, friends, and family in hopes to create a large network that will benefit us all in some way.

Recently, I was searching the blog archives and noticed Megan's Munchies, a lot of great recipes and more. Looking through some of the recipes my favorite so far is the eggnog pancake recipe and they are incredible. Megan, we appreciate you including us in your food related decorations post. Jack and Judy said they are sending you a present if we can get an address from you! We're excited about 2009 because of the brand new S'mores Ornaments coming out.

Once again, thank you all for your support. We look forward to relaxing this Christmas while spending time with family and friends. Please keep in touch, let us know what you think of this blog and be sure to pass this onto friends.

We wish you a Merry Christmas and success in the New Year!


Jack, Judy, & Family
