26 cases and 356 pounds of material was shipped to my house and received today -- the largest single shipment by UPS ever to my house.

The neighbors were gawking.

Once I got it all inside I eagerly opened the top box and pulled out the first fresh copy of The Sweet Treats of Christmas.

It was a great Christmas moment, I have to tell you. What a thrill to see the finished product -- something that we never planned to do that just came together from a groundswell of support in the community. I can't wait to ship them out and get reactions from folks about them.

My Mom is going to get one tomorrow. I know she'll be stunned. When I told her about it a month or two ago she seemed at first a little lukewarm. Mom doesn't cook much any more.

But when I told her the story of its creation and how it is made up of recipes from real people from all over the world she perked right up. "How do I get one of those?"

So based on Mom's reaction I'm certain we've got a hit on our hands.

And I sure hope so. I've spent a lot of money over the years in building the Christmas empire here but few bills have come in as big as this one -- thousands of dollars has been spent on this project.

And if Santa's Sleigh is to be a success this year we've got to sell all of these cookbooks within the next five weeks.

For me personally, I see this as high on my gift-giving list this year. After all, the product couldn't be better and the cause is perfect. And I guarantee this won't be returned or regifted.

But for tonight, as I pack up shipping boxes for those that have pre ordered, I'm basking in the glow of an early Christmas.

It is a good feeling.
