I thought I would start this thread earlier in the month and keep better track of things I recieve.
I just picked up this wonderful car toy set for ds, it's huge, made by Discovery Toys and in great condition. It is a great toy for our playroom. Ds already is having a ball with it. I also got a nice travel seat by First Years for when we go out to eat. I Love Freecycle.

I just got a one year free subscription to Men's Journal for dh.

1/3/05
Tomorrow I get to pick up a bedding set for ds, it's an all star theme which is too great, because ds loves sports.
