Jerry's parents got gift certificates for restaurants....they're rich and buy whatever they need so they said that's what they wanted....

Our tree will have no presents under it this year from Jerry and I to eachother... We had to buy a new fridge a couple of weeks ago, so that has to be our present to eachother........ It's tough being an adult......

Hubby: tool stuff, a big WWII DVD set, gloves
Mom: perfume, stuff from bath & body works, down throw
Dad: tools stuff, puzzles, polar fleece pants
My sister: cordless drill, pots & pans (w/mom) candy
1 bro in law: so far chipping in on drill
Godson: Under armour shirt & sweatshirt
Sis & Bro in law: big dustpans, fishing stuff, state atlas,

But one nephew we have a running gag and I could use some creative assistance. My hubby has a sweatshirt with BOSTON printed on the front. He always got teased by Tim because he wore it so much and looked pretty shabby. 2 years ago I attached it to my 4 wheeler and dragged through garden and drove over with with truck also. I also glued cat hair on it and we gave it to him for christmas. Last yr Neil got it back. Tim has written with glitter glue Gail's the BOSs and something about pretty boy on the back. Well we have to top that. I was thinking of cutting in down the front like a sweater and sewing fake fur on collar and cuffs and of course some saying. What else would work????

I'll pop in to feed the goat distance???? Must be some Aussie code thing. I can just see myself in downtown Seattle next summer at the ferry terminals with throngs of tourists, "Oh, so you wanna get across the water?? Sure thing, it's a quick goat distance for ya!"

That has to be the funniest thing I've heard all day.

There's a bit of adultery in the beginning that's not gotten into specifics about, but closer to the end, there is a sex scene (It's fairly tame, if I remember correctly)
My parent's didn't care when I was that age, but if your family is a littl emore conservative, then perhaps not? I hate to have his mum catch him reading a dirty part.

Sierra and I thought we would open a couple of our Christmas pressies from Danielle tonight! She made the selection, of course, and her first choice was a fun Kitty Teasers mouse with a bell on an elastic string!She then decided I could open a present, too, and chose for me an adorable cats and dogs collection of postage stamps in a lovely collector's book!What a clever idea, Dan! Well, we're going to go play with our new toys now!
Thank you so much, Danielle!

Someone who I love dearly on this board sent me a christmas present today. I opened it (I have no self-control) and it is a sleep machine! LOL I think someone believes I don't get enough sleep! Imagine that!

It was a timely gift because the sounds of the ocean will drown out the sounds of bailey squalling all night, although now (knock on wood) he is still quiet and sleeping.

As I know she is online right now- I will just say Thank You for thinking of me in such a wonderful and practical way!

I also got presents from Kumbulu and Anne, but those are unopened under the tree- and I thank both of them as well-

I'm so thankful it arrived safely, Mary Anne!After day 10, I was really getting concerned! This sound machine has worked wonders for me, and I only hope you find it just as effective as you strive to savor a bit of slumber between your hectic work schedule, your beloved husband, your babies that fill your home and your heart as well as your numerous self imposed responsibilies that seem to find you everywhere you go! Yes, from one insomniac to another, please get some sleep, sweet friend!

Do I ever feel behind when I see peoples lists here. I haven't even started yet. I better get to it. Anyway, Sierra looks cute in all those pics. She looks like she's listening for a heart beat from her toy in one of them.

I also received this wonderful gift- it will come in handy for Tazzy because she doesn't like to go upstairs which is where the litter pans are located-

I'm so excited about my baby girl's Christmas presents!Sierra will be getting this elevated dish , this embroidered collar ,this new tag , a Boogie Mat , Salmon Liv-A-Littles , and a new catnip teddy bear and Swat and Play, since hers are on their last threads, and that's all we have so far. Don't tell Sierra, please, it's a surprise!
post #57 of 124
Lucky Sierra! What style Boogie Mat is she getting? I'd love to get my cats those collars but Mac is a fiend about un-latching those. He takes them off of himself and others! I have to buy the super streachy kind. What color is Sierra getting?

Oh, thank you so much for asking!Sierra is getting the purple collar, it's her color! She will be getting the Oriental Boogie Mat!Do your babies have a Boogie Mat? It's so funny that Mac not only takes his own collar off, but goes around taking everyone else's off as well!

I got my babies all sorts of catnip toys. Today I am going to buy them a laser flashlight to play with and some toys that Sweet Sierra recommended to them. She told my babies what to ask me for.

The assistant principal at school, who is also one of my best friends, gave me a gorgeous stuffed reindeer, silk, ivory and burgundy. I have a collection of stuffed reindeers.

The BEST present I got last year was a "Cat A Day" calender from my friend Jeff.
