So what is the coolest things that you have gotten people for Christmas this year?

  1. Don't hate me...I do still need to do the wrapping and have to bake bread to send!!

    One of the neatest items I found for my best friend & her husband is a cool picture. It has a verse of the Lord is my Shepard and than has cut-out of sheep on the botton of the picture (the raise sheep) with a beautiful frame!

    And I found out one of my nephews, who is 12 is saving for a puppy. I got him a doggie bank and put in a fair sum of quarters!

    Also found some neat decorative boxes...small ones for a neice. She can keep memories in it (like in the old Old days).

    For myself...I've found a neat little fairy light!

    Got an Xbox 360 for my 16 y/o son. It was fairly easy. I found out that Wally World was going to have 16 units. I sent hubby there at 5:00 and he was number 10 in line. We took turns waiting in line until midnight. Several people offered us money to take our place in line. It was inside, warm and we had a chair, food and drinks available.

    My older kids all want practical gifts like household things - a toaster over, a canister vacuum, borrrrrrrrrrrrrring LOL.

    My little one is 4 so Santa will fix him up with all the goodies!

    Hubster is getting a U. of Louisville Bike jersey and a barbeque grill,

    My sibs and I are going in on new bikes for my parents - they may be old but they ain't decrepid and I aim to keep to em movin! They havent had bikes in years, when I was a kid, My mom & Dad and me and my sibs all used to take a long bike ride together about twice a week. I miss that - and I know my dad has pined over his lost bike a bit - it'll be one of those deals where my dad will cry so it should be pretty neat! We aren't buying high dollar road bikes - just nice bikes with cushy seats and nice shock absorption features.

    All of my kids and my family will be home for Christmas - I am really looking forward to that. In addition, hubsters family will be here too and our families have never met so this will be fun!!!

    What am *I* getting for xmas? A new niece in February and a new grandbaby next summer, and my last semester in grad school starting in January!

    I did see a laser tag set up that shocks you when you take a hit. I considered it for my son in law. My daughter begged me not to as she is the one who will have to play with him. I took mercy and didn't buy it.

    Nothing, so far. No money. All I want for Christmas is a decent job and the security of knowing that I am going to be able to keep my house come January.

    My dh is getting a Taurus .357 (he is a gun fanatic). Stepdaughter is getting three suitcases of bead and bracelet materials as well as lots of princess stuff (She's 8). 6yo stepson is getting Spiderman everything. We also got about 30 cartoon movies on DVD for them when Kmart had them for a dollar apiece. Gotta love the big K!
