  • The OFFICIAL - What Cool Stuff I got for Christmas Thread!

    Well as I'm sure many of you that have multiple Christmas celebrations to goto - we've already started our gift exchanges here. Here, we have my house, my parents house, my inlaws house, AND my father's family Christmas to goto.

    So far we've done the inlaws and I got some cool Disney stuff I've been wanting

    - I finally got John Hench's book - The Art of Show. I'm already half way through it! Unfortunatly isn't as content heavy so far as I wish it were.. its more of a coffee table book But still a great read so far.

    - I got the Disney Encyclopedia 3rd Edition from Dave Smith

    - I got the Treasures DVD Donald Vol 3 (to go alone with my Donald v1 and v2)

    - I got Pirates:AWE DVD

    - I bought myself lots of the Jeff Lange DVDs for some of the classic EPCOT attractions (Horizons, World of Motion, Living Seas, SSE, and Journey). These are great to watch while I'm slaving all day wrapping presents for the kids. A bit pricey for what you get - but for a Disney fan its worth it and I'm glad to support someone who pulls this type of stuff together for prosperity

    And I got some good non-Disney gifts so far

    - A nice LL Bean Parka and some down gloves to match

    - A new Sony HardDrive Camcorder to replace my old Hi8 camcorder

    Tomorrow we do Christmas in my house and then off to my parents on the weekend.

    So what neat stuff did you get? Share with the rest of us so we have some Disney xmas ideas for next year!

    My dad decided to do all my Christmas wrapping in front of me. He'd hold up items to show my mom and was like "Who's this for?" or else my mom was like "hey you like that? Go order it online." So I saw 99.99% of what I am getting from my folks.
    -Bare Escentuals make up
    -knit magazines
    -gift cards
    -a new messanger bag thing.
    -cold weather stuff
    -a new wallet. I am giving up my underoos with "boys are smelly" coin purse thing, for a real wallet.
    Nothing cool. The coolest part is the makeup... oh and Knit.One (a knitting magazine that has easy patterns.).

        So far, a Cinderella ornament for my tree

        And: a mug that says "Shopaholic" and a musical teapot that's pink and has roses on it from one of my friends

          Yup, my laptop was the coolest so far
          Good morning, son
          In twenty years from now
          Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
          And I can tell you 'bout today
          And how I picked you up and everything changed
          It was pain
          Sunny days and rain
          I knew you'd feel the same things...

                My parents bought hubby and me plane tickets to Florida to visit my aunt in Jan. I can't wait for him to open his gift, though - mom bought him a Wii.

                Hubby's aunt also gave us a beautiful, handmade quilt. It's small, meant to be a wall hanging. It's absolutely gorgeous and I'm trying to figure out how I want to display it.
                She did it!

                  My parents are giving our middle one the 'chest' of HP books. I think we have all the movies so far. She's a HP nut who's dressed as a HP character each halloweeen

                  So what's the feeling on gift cards? Good? Bad? Prefer Cash?

                    I want to be the youngster again and get cool presents! ha! My kids get the REALLY good stuff, and hubby and I mostly spend on them, and take vacations, etc. for ourselves for Christmas. (Such as our recent 9 day trip to So Cal.)

                      So far I opened one gift. It was Clinique Happy Body Butter..

                      ALL the rest of the gifts and our gatherings are Tomorrow. Though the family is getting a Wii and Jeremy and I have played it twice when our daughter was asleep... so that counts as something 2/3rds of the family has already received I suppose.

                          All the females in my family (and the brother's girlfriend) got the same pjs. We are all wearing pink and with red striped plaid flannel pj pants and long red shirts with Mary Jane slippers. I will take pictures. It's sad.

                            I'm one of the few freaks that likes gift cards. Luckily, people who get them for me know where I like to shop (and eat), so I always get ones I can use.
