What did you get for Christmas?!

I got a bunch of awesome cook books, enough gift cards from Amazon to buy a medium size LCD HDTV...

...and my girl bought me a microbrew 12-pack-a-month package.
I might have to ask her to marry me after this! :mad:

MERRY CHRISTMAS! :) :laugh2: ;)

Here at my Grandparent's I haven't really gotten much; a nice bottle of wine, about 10 iTunes gift cards, and several shirts and pairs of pants.

However, we have a tradition of putting one big, expensive thing under our tree at home for each other. I'm hoping for a big, shiny Mac sitting there. I'm tired of the Mac Mini.

Merry Christmas!

BTW - Another tradition we have, kind of weird, and I can't say I really like it. My grandmother likes to serve her giant ( and I do mean giant) Turkey dinner at 2 in the afternoon, which a in about twenty minutes. We always end up ordering pizza around 7.

Same here, we will eat at 2:00 and then open presents afterwards so I have no idea what I got yet. That tradition has been handed down several generations.

Lot of clothes, some real good books. We all (wife, in-laws etc tend to concentrate on the littler ones - our daughter is 4.5, niece is 5, nephew is 5, another 2 year old niece - so they all made out like proper little bandits :)

Well, I'll be heading home in about 2 hours, so I'll post back later with what's waiting under that tree.

Gah, no Mac this year. I just got a hiking kit that I'll probably never use.

Perhaps I'll just buy myself the Mac. That raise in Apple stock sure gave me some extra dough.

Man, you made out! A 360 and a Wii? Nice. I also have both - you'll probably end up playing the 360 more, depending on what type of games you like...

Cash, which I promptly used as a down payment on a new SUV. Plus earrings and a couple of DVDs.
