I got a bunch of cool kitchen stuff (the benefits of having an Amazon wish list that my husband just poached from).

I got:
a new pizza stone
an electrical knife sharpener
a broiler safe porcelain baking dish
a mini donut pan
a bench scraper
a Cuisinart Griddler
vanilla beans

Somehow it seems like he will get the most benefits from those gifts...

And a check from my dad, which went right into the wedding fund.

Love watching Pigpen leaving a dust trail on the ice.

Happy Holidays everyone.

:D Me too Antares!

Merry Christmas everyone!

Also, my wife won.  I'm spending Christmas with my foot up in the air.  I've been designated the household "Tiny Tim"

God bless us everyone!

Ha! You're a good sport oldkid! Hope you're doing better now. And thanks, Mrs. oldkid for winning. :)


sdb_1970, that sounds like a beautiful memory. I think of Sandi Patty when you say O Holy Night. She's definitely got the pipes for it.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLZClW3YF5I#no

Bondo, you feeling better? I really hope you got to go to Wizarding World!

Monty, bacon sandwich for Christmas breakfast?! I like that tradition. :) Would you be able to show me what the Christmas pudding looks like?

Junior! West Side Story box set?!

COOL

Way to make things fun and cheery anyway, Corndog!

Sam, could I come over and have you teach me how to play the X-Wing Miniatures Game? :) That looks fantastic!



Great gifts you got, everyone!

Mine are:

A Ukulele :)
Bento Boxes
And an assortment of Beautiful DVDs!

For my sister's family I got a Fujifilm Instax Mini 90. It looks the balls! For $150CAD I thought it sounded like a pretty fun blast from the past.
