I got ... Nothing.

No, not because I was naughty (well, maybe partly) but because I told everyone in my family not to. We all agreed (Wife, my parents and my brothers) that this year we would skip exchanging of gifts for us and just concentrate on the young ones. I also told the kids not buy anything for us (the wife and I) and they thankfully, yet begrudgingly, listened.

I bought my eldest daughter various stuff for her new house and my youngest daughter received cash (as she is going to Australia to finish her bachelors, she will need it). I also bought my grand-kids Tons of LEGO's, and was surprised that they now have 'girl based' LEGO's, so that worked perfectly as they both (boy and girl), love putting them together. Also bought my brother's kid some baby toys. That was my Christmas and loved every minute of it.

I got everyone beat because....I....GOT....THIS........




And it works great!!!    Grin



I also was given a lot of PEZ dispensers for some unknown reason but they are fun to look at...




Wife and kid gave me Call of Duty Black Ops II - I guess to go with the Call of Duty Black Ops I they gave me for the birthday.  Mom gave me the gift that keeps on giving...cash.  Can't go wrong there as I will likely spend it on my next DCBS order.   Wink

Is it just me, or does Ace Frehley look fat on his Pez Dispenser?

Never even heard of the guy until you mentioned him. I knew about Eric Carr and Eric Singer, but never this Tommy guy. Learn something new every day.

Got Superman drawstring pants for lounging from the guy I just started dating. He's a Trekkie and I think we are somewhat compatible.

My twelve year "stable" thing ended earlier this year. Rough, but I am fine and moving forward.
