My mother bought me a Keurig (?) coffee-maker. My sister got me a docking station for my iPhone and also a strange knitted hat that makes me look like I should be riding around on a yak. :)

Lots of cool little stocking-stuffer type presents as well, and three calendars!!
Love the yak-hat Madhen!

DH and I also splurged and got a $50 gift card for a restaurant. There was a promo where if you buy a $50 gift card, you get a $15 gift certificate for the same restaurant. Not a bad deal...and it's DH's favourite restaurant.
I wanted a card from my BF saying that he loved me. I didn't get it. Instead I got a Blue Ray Player, and a neon clock for my office. I would have much rather had the card though.

I got a $50 GC from Work, my sis got me a GC for Applebee's and one for Walmart, Mom gave me a $20. friends at work chipped in and got me a pair of sweat pants and shirt.

All in all I felt very loved and thought of.

I got a Kindle from my inlaws!! DH and the girls got me a beautiful cover for it and a couple candles including a yummy smelling jar candle, a coffee mug, pj's and bubble bath. From my parents I got Pj's, and a purse. My brother gave me a 25.00 gift card to Barnes and Noble as well. It's been a wonderful Christmas. My best gift of all was spending a very fun, relaxing day with my whole family at my parents.
One of my favorite presents is a olive oil glass storage jar with pourer spout. I can't wait to use it:)

a great family meal..nice presents. We ARE blessed.

Last night I realized one of my sons friends...actully he lives alone and Has no parents that claim him. He was raised by his aunt and uncle..and they basically kicked him out at graduation. He does McDonald's. And he works putting up aluminum gutters. I'm rambling., but to make a long story short..I put a gift basket together for him at the last minute.,.with my homemade spaghetti sauce.some spaghetti, oranges, clemantines, a box of chicken noodle soup, a loaf of homemade raisin friendship bread..and a subway gift card $25. I don't know what pocessed me...but it made me feel so good. Isn't that what christmas is about? Sharing good fortune...helping those in need..spending time with family and friends.

all in was a wonderful day.

Cher, that was a very kind and thoughtful act! I think that is the real meaning of Christmas!

I got several books, a cookbook, Simon and Simon DVD sets, a hoodie, 2 buffet servers, a calendar, DVD movies, gift cards, a candle and lots more things. The best gift was an antique table that is approximately 130 yrs old from my sister and BIL. It's a combo Christmas/Housewarming gift. It's just beautiful and in pristine condition!
I got some clothes and some $ and some gift cards. But the BEST thing I got was a NOOK!!!! YAY! I am sooooo excited. I wanted an
e reader but because of this website and someone talking about a nook it made me want one! I sucumbed to peer pressure from ya'll LOL ;) But I am beyond thrilled!
My kids gave me 2 cans of glade all wrapped up in pretty paper. Now I know your wondering why???? One can for upstairs and one for down...for when dh stinky's up the house. LOL It was a joke gift. I'm forever yelling where is the Oust or where is the Lysol...or spray people spray. LOL They also got my a glow in the dark pitch fork for me go with my tail. LOL

Real gift from the kids was a 1982 Home Interior nativity set that I've been wanting. They with dh's help also filled 2 stockings with candy and goodies.

Dh got me a new tracphone...a nicer one than I had, a phone card, a car charger, scissors with a life time guarantee, a pretty new watch, and a house coat. All things I needed. He also let me order a few things from Boscov's...a set of cardinal dishes, another set of 4 decorative dishes, a new purse, Cuisinart knife, flour sack dish towel. I ordered 2 sets of the cardinal dishes but one was busted all to pieces and I had to return it. They didn't have more and refunded my money.

My parents gave me money. My sis gave me a platter, socks,a container to keep a serving dish hot or cold, and some Christmas nick nacks. We got those Christmas Eve.
