    Way too much. Seriously, I was overwhelmed by all the gifts I was given this year by my family, employers, friends, and SO. I must have been really, really good all year.

    Um..nothing so far. JD left a bit ago to run and get me a couple things but the roads are still terrible, so he''s on his way home. I''m getting a white Mad Bomber hat with gray rabbit fur and Wii Sports Resort. Then I''ll be working on some rings with Dana and Sally.

    What did I get?!
    HA! HAHAHA! More like what did my 18 month old daughter get [​IMG] No, I''m afraid my Christmas days are over. My husband got me a very lovely tourmaline and a LOGR setting I''d been lurking for awhile on ebay. My family basically gave me The Children''s Place and Toys R'' Us wrapped in a box hehe. But honestly the best gift was watching her tear into those presents and say "Ooooooooh TOY!"

    My boyfriend doesn't surprise me with presents. He usually goes shopping with me right after any "gift" event and has me pick something out. We went to the stores yesterday (mob scene!) and I picked out some face stuff from Origins as my gift. He then surprised me by stopping by the jewelry store and buying me a nice pair of diamond studs! [​IMG] They're my first pair of diamond earrings and he lured me in (well, you don't really need to convince me to go into a jewelry store) by saying he was going to look for something for his mom since her birthstone is diamonds!

    My parents bought me a washing machine....LOL, just what I always wanted!

    Dh gave me some tall socks to wear with my new wellies and a really pretty red Kate Spade wallet along with some stocking stuffers. We haven''t been to my parents yet but they always go overboard with gifts. I also have something in the mail from his sister who drew my name for the gift exchange.

    Cool new laptop - 17" Sager. Love the white face and keys.

    Beads for my Pandora bracelet
    Chanel perfume and matchy stuff for it
    Yoga classes
    Books
    Decorative pillow I loved at Pottery Barn
    Christmas dessert dishes
    Chanel makeup, variety
    gift cards for facials, etc...
    bracelet from Anthropology - cute

    Casserole dishes I''ve been needing
    Waterford Flutes
    other stuff can''t remember right now - but it was a nice Christmas. My kids made out like bandits, as usual, so for me, seeing them happy is what it''s all about.

    Christmas has been shrinking more and more at our house with every passing year. This year I sent out cards but that was it. No decorating and no gift giving. We had a real "reason for the season" Christmas with no sign of commericalism in sight.

    Non-commercialism makes Christmas mighty boring! but hopefully next Christmas we''ll be living in a nicer newer house and we''ll get back into it again.

    Sorry to threadjack DF.

    Kitcha I want to snuggle with your kitten. What a heartbreaker. He/she looks almost sad in a look at me I''m just a ''ickle wickle kittie wittie''. I want to cuddle that kitten! Please post more pics somewhere.

    As for me; I was spoiled rotten by DH and got a CB Pochette, Sonatine, MC Pochette, Damier Illovo and the new Stephen King. I can''t wait to read it!

    DH-
    New fluffy towels
    2 pair of jeans
    alarmclock/digital picture frame. Its pretty cool. I didn''t know they made such a thing
    lapdesk
    My Sisters Keeper DVD
    A very nice organizer book thing

    Family-
    Gift cards to B&N and the Kitchen Store
    Candles
    Bath and Body Works stuff
    I also got a gift card to Hollister, but traded with my stepdaughter for her Target card

    I am quite happy, the only thing that I really needed was the jeans, but I love it all. I think the best gift in the house right now was DSD scrabble game. DH and I play pretty regularly. He thinks he is the winner, but that is because he racks up points with words like hit and gay where I use use turns trading tiles for bigger words.

    DHs favorite gift I think was one that he got for himself. A wooden cutting board! Who would have thunk it?

    Another new parent here, so this Christmas was (and will be for many years to come) all about the tiny one. Our six-month-old was spoiled silly. He received tons of clothes, books and toys.

    DH and I got a long, most-expenses-paid trip to visit our families over the holidays, which was awesome. And we each got a few more smaller things, like gift cards and PJs. Oh, and I got enough cash to buy a pair of small, everyday BGD diamond bezel studs. SO excited to order them! [​IMG]

    Working on the photos, I promise [​IMG] I''ve been saving up for this tsav for a while now. There is a good chance it will end up eventually being a baby ring / push present type of thing.

    I got a bunch of clothes for work, some fashion jewelry, and a bunch of pjs finally-I get asked every year what I want, every year I say pjs, and I never get it!

    The best gift though was the look on DD''s face when we opened her first gift. I didn''t expect her to be so expressive. She squealed and threw herself forward to grab the toy. It was fabulously hilarious.

    SNUGGIE!!!!! [​IMG][​IMG]
    I have wanted the leopard print Snuggie ever since I saw it on Oprah live. It''s not nearly as soft as I thought it would be, and it wasn''t as pretty as the one they brought on Oprah, but...I can''t wait to try it out.

    Nintendo Wii Fit Plus and a bunch of techie self charging things, DVD''s, cover contraption and other accessories that I have no idea how to use...yet.

    Gift cards.

    Book-Freakonomics (which I just read cover to cover on Saturday)

    Crockpot [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Lucky Bracelet with peace signs from my boss. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Best Present ever....spending it with my Granddaughter.[​IMG]
