Colin bought be a pair of gloves for Christmas / he also got me an adorable little silver kitty ring holder that i had been eyeing at Bed Bath & that in some way makes up a wee bit for the random black gloves that are too large

My mom got me some warm fuzzy socks (oh i love them!), a Christmas set that had two candlestick holders, a gravy boat, and a napkin holder, some perfume, she gave us homemade goodies, and i'm sure there's something else i must be forgetting!

My sister and her family gave me one of the new Rachel Ray cookbooks i've been wanting! Ohhh i can't wait to try it out! I'm a huge Rachel Ray fan- her recipes are awesome! They also gave me one of the pictures of their family picture they recently had taken- awww i love it soo much! I have it on my fridge at the moment, but when i get a little money i plan to get a nice frame and put it out

My mom's customer (my mom cleans houses for a living and has had some of her customers since i was a little girl- so i've grown up around them and love them!) Ms. Kathy gave me a gorgeous litlte Christmas tablecloth that was handstitched- so i put it out in our living room for Christmas and it looks soo cute! She also gave me a cute little Santa Clause ornament and a serving dish with two polar bears on it I love it!

My cousin James was my Secret Santa (we have too large of a family to do gifts for everyone, so we draw names and pick out one for our extended family) gave me a $15 gift card to Spin Street (one of our many local music stores!) I'll put that one to good use soon

A couple of blankets (one electric), tea, chocolate, gift card for hobby lobby, fuzzy socks, a dvd, some sleep sets - pants and tees,... and apparently a worse memory then usual - I can't remember what else I got.

In my own defense, I've slept since then and that always makes me forget things.

Oh, and a nosy Tomas who must sniff everything and complain because I have other animal smells on my shoes. He's currently "talking" to DH about a box he's claimed as his.

Grandma gave me a few little purses which each had a little gift in them. One had brown boho earrings, another had a crystal butterfly hair clip and another had $100. They were all in a little zip up jewellery case. She also gave me a beautiful sheer scarf/shoulder wrap which has maroon and emerald green velvet roses/leaves sewn onto it, i'm using it at the next house to decorate mums dressing table when she gives it to me

Tomorrow i'm going deal hunting with my xmas money!

From Rob:
$50 Books-A-Million gift card, the Slanket ( but it is back ordered until January.

From Rob's parents:
3 cat calendars (my house will have one in every room at this rate!), a cat ornament from Petsmart charities, a wedding ornament for us for our tree next year, a cat ring holder, and some stocking stuffers.

From Rob's brother:
We got a $25 gift card to Applebees.\\

From the rest of his family in Maine:
$25 in a "money dispenser", $25 to Wal*Mart, $25 to Olive Garden

Not sure what I'm getting from my parents yet. I'm not seeing them until this coming weekend. I know my dad was going to get me a shot glass shelf thing, because I am collecting state shot glasses when I go on road trips for each state I've been to.

The kittens got some toy attachments to replace the ones they shredded, a laser pointer, crinkle ball, treats, their cat tree (in the beginning of the month), two catnip pads to lay on, and a fish bowl that can also double as a water or food bowl with fake fish that swim in the bottom.

Rob got a $100 gift card for Sears from me, and a $5 rewards card they gave me when I bought the gift card. And a card from me with Garfield on it that said "It's Christmas! I'll kiss you if you stand under the mistletoe." Then inside "Heck - I'll kiss you if you stand under swamp moss!"

From my parents:
post its, pens, teacher send home-grams, Lenox cat ornament, "first Christmas" ornament, a Tinkerbell plate, sappy feel good books, hot chocolate, subscriptions South Beach Diet to and Trans-Siberian Orchestra CD.

From DH: How the Grinch Stole Christmas and Rent on DVD, Backstreet Boys new CD, Josh Groban Noel, and a big computer bag, (I may be taking that one back)

From Grandma: Christmas towels, workout clothes, and a JC Penney gift card

From my in-laws: lots of ornaments, WVU earrings, a gold and blue scarf, and a WVU end table.

Over all a great Christmas. But the best part was watching my MIL's face when she opened up her photo album from our wedding. She loved it!!

DH was happy with what he got, but didn't get Mario Galaxy for his Wii. He got a ton of stuff from me and my family. Everything from his parents was to both of us. MIL said she that was because she new I went all out for him I fell kind of bad though.

You needed a drill and bits? A real man only needs 2 things - duck tape and a hammer!

If something moves and it shouldn't, use the tape.
If something doesn't move and it should, use the hammer!

Awww... how cute!

I got a new sound system, shoes, a new coat, and a video game for my Wii.

The best gift I got though was 8 hours of movie watching with DH. It's a Wonderful Life, A Christmas Story, Charlie Brown Christmas, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Die Hard, and Gremlins. Nothing like a holiday movie marathon.

We then went out and saw Juno.

With the money i got from my grandmother today i bought new jeans (only have one pair that's starting to fray on the inseams (i can't seem to find a pair that is non stretch and fits comfortably, so i get the stretch ones but they wear out quicker and get baggy)

I went to a shop called T2, one just opened near me, the closest after that is alot further out. I bought a bag of Red Chai and Honey green almond in loose leaves. A little japanese cup, a scoop and a mesh strainer with chain

I told them they were destroying my sweat pants so they all chipped in and bought me a new pair. Grey, to help hide their hair.......

(not a joke, the actual tag from the present. They bought their daddy a CD.)

Hammy and I didnt get each other anything for christmas, we never go anywhere without each other so its quite hard to surprise each other with anything plus we always what we want when we see it instead of waiting for holidays. The only thing we got for each other was another new aquarium, we got a 38 gallon that we set up for our african cichlids. But we did get alot of cool things from family members, we got two leather gaming chairs that have speakers built into them along with an Atari 2600 I didnt know they still made new ones. It looks like the original except it doesnt have cartridges, if has a built in card that has 40 games on it. Yes we do have other game systems but it is kinda cool doin it old school too!!!! We got some cool stuff for our apartment for the kitchen, storage containers and a pan set, we both got new clothes, lots of gift cards, which we used to buy all kinds of stuff for our fish and for squishy, and lots of puzzles. which is what we did to bring in the new year. Yes he is 22 and i am 35 i know we should be doing funner things to bring in the new year but we were together with our critters at home safe. Which is much more enjoyable and rememberable!

I received many lovely gifts, will list some...but first, my best gift was seeing how happy my husband was with the camera I bought him. He's been working so hard, very long hours, jobs on the side, helping me with shipping all my orders since I can not drive right now...he has been like a child..I hope to post some of his shots soon (have to corral him to size them and email them to me) -he has one extreme closeup of Frankie's nose that is exquisite (the detail/color of her fur, the little spots on her nose - confirming her tortie-diva status).

From a dear friend Jenni, my favorites of what she sent is a peweter and crystal dragon fly design perfume bottle with raspberry and pink enamel accents, and various soaps (goats milk/tangerine by Zumbar, a cucumber-melon soap with small square green ceramic soap dish to hold it)

My in-laws - my favorite is a small string of pearls (will have to get extenders for this, but love it)

From my husband - my favorites are a professional 6 qt Kitchen-Aid mixer (to replace the older one we have), an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner (yes!!), collector's edition of Serenity, some new anime, a humingbird feeder (I actually saw one near our lavender plants on the back deck this past Summer and want to see more!), and the next two books in Jim Butcher's Codex Alera series (he's also the author of the Dresden Files).
