Everyone happy with their presents? - Page 2

post #31 of 52
I guess my whole Christmas was ruined before I ever got to the gifts.(See other thread about my parents being sick & twisted)

I got Cat vs. Cat & Twisted Whiskers the books to see if I can understand Ophelia(so far, no luck...although she did attack me while I was reading them! ), Easy Walk Harness, dog/cat toys, crinkle tunnel thingy for the cats, a superbly adorable plaque that says "The cats & me welcome thee", some ceramic cats & dogs(which have already been broken), socks, & then I'm getting money to cover Damita's vet trip she & I will be taking soon!

I am so excited and happy about my gifts!!!! I got everything I wanted, which is really great!!! I got a Cats the musical t-shirt and cap, that's my favourite ever musical so it's really exciting!!!! I love them! And I got a set of Archangel Oracle Cards which I've wanted for ages and already learning to read them. And I got an awesome pair of gloves which have half-fingers and there is a mitten-part that buttons over them if you want it to!! I can't wait till winter so I can wear them and I also got the music for the production I am in which my parents hid from me, so I have been learning it all day since I got it!!! It's for '100 Years of Broadway' if anyone has seen that. And I got 3 new "Chalet School" books which I collect, yay! And a new classical guitar book with beautiful pieces and some other things.

Every one made out so great this year I know I did, I got a photo printer just for photos (I love taking pictures), photoshop elements 5.0, Some tops one is too big tho gotta shrink it, and 2 pairs of pants and one of those I gotta shrink too! I also got a really pretty ring from my mom with a ruby inside ( I love the color red) I also got a pair of earings and a necklace with an A in it for my name, I also got this little jutbox alarm clock thing! Beverly Hills 90210 first season, a watch with a necklace and earings, and this massage pillow I am young but man does my back always hurt I am hoping its nothing serious though seeing how my oldest brother had back surgery last year at age 24 I think !!! and $100 thats all from mom and dad and santa And also Stormie was an EARLY christmas present according to my mom and also some little outfits that go together and if theres more IDK

From my brother and his family I got the waste deep dvd (good movie) and A Gang of Roses dvd (seen that movie on tv and loved it) !!!

From grandma E some little things (I wasnt thinking she was gonna buy me a baby phat coat but I told her it was too expensive so I got some stuff for my hair and tweezers and doritos , and $100

From my other grandma I got $25 which is understandable since my pap died in March hard for the first christmas without him but the whole family was together down there!

And some money from other family members including my FAVORITE Uncle Al, He started sending me cards and money last year for christmas I am figuring its because he thought my brother was gone idk thats just my guess because they never got cards from him and other family members! So I did pretty well and the kitties got stuff when I first got money, and I think later today technically I am going to go and buy them a few things (I get christmas money and I wanna buy them things ) I really wanna get my mom another kittie though, Willie is coming home I am determined but Still theres this cutie thats 6 and she is sooo cute I want her for my mommy ! But dad will probly kill us !!

The kitchen remodel was our gift to each other this year but we still had a few token gifts to each other (just to have gifts to open). But I also bought new bathroom faucets (the old ones were junk) and 3 new ceiling fans for our sun porch. I bought them (1/2 price on ebay), and hubby installed them over the weekend. I love these fans - you can see the old one hanging to the left of the new fan. The old fans were rusty and weren't installed correctly - they wobbled so bad we rarely used them. The new ones are divine!!

I got all my stuff from DH before x-mas.....he couldn't wait.

I got chocolate leather gloves lined in cashmere, a chocolate kenneth cole scarf, a $100 gift certificate to a clothing store in the mall, a $100 cash to get a winter ski jacket, and a dust buster with all the attachments. That is what I asked for.....he tried to pick me out a coat, but he couldn't find one he liked.....I just wear his coat all the time anyway....that's why I wanted him to pick one for me, cause then I'll wear it.


and more importantly, DH loved all of his things too! Usually he's not impressed with his gifts.....it's my fault cause I used to spoil him rotten, before we had bills, and when I made a ton of $.....but I don't make that $ anymore, and so I can't do for him what I used to.... But I got him a paint ball gun & kit that he loved, ugg slippers that he loves, 2 sweatshirts from old navy that he liked, funny tee shirts for work, a few books (an uncle john's bathroom reader, a cat book, a card game/trick book), battleship, scrabble, 2 cologne sets (very sexy from VS, and Life by Aramis), nose hair clippers, and a toaster.....yes, he hates my toaster oven and always complains (several times a week) how he wants a "regular" toaster.....and when he got it, he said "and I don't wanna see YOU using MY toaster not once!!!"

We had a small Christmas this year but all the gifts were very thoughtful and I loved them. I got a silver bracelet with my initials engraved on it, I got a new fleece jacket, Gray's Anatomy Seasons 1&2, a pink motorola RAZR, $25 gift card for Bed bath&beyond, Camelbak, sisters by heart figurines from my best friend, silky jammies, and another fleece from Lee's mom.

I got spoiled rotten and I love all the things I got, but my 3 favorites have to be: 2 little kitchen fairies from both my girls. They are the cutest little fairies that sit on top of foods. I fell in love with them last year and I guess my girls picked up the "hint" Here's the 2 they got me:


My best friend got me a beautiful Movado watch. It's gorgeous! We dated for many years which unfortunately didn't work out like we had hoped, but we are still very very close and I absolutely loved the gift.

And my parents got me a full year of lawn care from our local lawn company. This was the best present ever cause I can grow flowers and plants no problem, but I have not been able to grow grass successfully since I moved into this house 2 years ago. It's just something I never thought of as being tough, but I just can't seem to get it. So next year I'm gonna finally have a green lawn!!! The best part of the present was the poem my father wrote though to tell me about it. The poem said:

With flowers, you have all the power
With weeds, you really succeed
With grubs, you could fill a tub
But with grass you fall flat on your a**
Not to worry, you won't be sorry
This gift is payment, for a year of lawn treatment

Isn't that the best! My dad's the greatest!

By far the best part of the whole day though was watching everyone else open all the gifts we got for them. I love that part so much. I love giving even more than I like getting.

Cute poem. Reminds me of the one I wrote a couple of years ago when I gave my sister an office chair. I had my nephew put it in her office and put the card with poem under the tree.
"Every king has a throne
Now you have your very own.
Go to where you rule your world,
Sit right down and have a whirl"
Well, the first throne she thought of was a toilet but I emphasized the "rule your world part" and went to her office to see.

I love that poem!

I go into the holidays with very low expectations for gifts. I love to give, and I'm not really concerned with what I receive in return.

I have been getting some wonderful gifts in the mail for the past few weeks from friends all over Those gifts are always special.



Yesterday from friends and family I received:

Bath & Body works products, chocolate , a Coldwater Creek gift card that I have already spent because everything on their website is 50% off right now, 2 bottles of wine, 3 gift cards to restaurants - two of which we have never been to, a wall calendar, fuzzy socks, Lowes gift card, Home Depot gift card (both requested by us), new flannel sheets, some body creams and perfume from Sephora, a gift certificate for photo developing I had requested this, as I am a few years behind in printing out my photos, and at this point it would be easier to send them somewhere to be printed up. Now I will be able to start scrapbooking again.

I received some "get fresh" bath and body products. Has anyone heard of them? I saw them at a local store and them asked for them for Christmas. The scents are heavenly!

www.getfresh.net

We still have some family and friends we need to visit to exchange gifts, but unfortunately I also got a cold for Christmas, and will be picking up my antibiotics and prednisone in a little bit

My wife and I got a few certificates/gift cards to favorite restaurants, to the movies, and some christmas stuff. We also got one of those chocolate fountains (we need an excuse to use it besides "Because it's Tuesday!") We also got two of those "Scene It" games, "Disney" (which we've played alot with friends) and the "Friends" version which we're addicted to.

From my wife I also got the new Taylor Hicks CD which is great, a drum instruction dvd, and "Brain Age" for Nintendo DS which pretty much confirms my stupidity suspicions

I might hafta start me a new room, maybe I will just knock a wall down and have me a big ole room.

And believe it or not, I didn't have any of the stuff that I got, the only thing I didn't get that I really really really wanted was a pair of LSU crocs.
