So what did you get for Christmas?

Okay, so what fun and exciting things did everyone get for Christmas? New cookbooks? Cookware? Knives? Something non-cooking?

Cooking wise I got the Star Trek pizza cutter and Klingon corkscrew and a TARDIS cookie jar from ThinkGeek.com.

I got a Wii. It's used but that's what my son could afford on his salary. He'll spend the next week while I'm gone removing stuff from it from the previous owner (him) and hooking it up to my tv. I mainly want it to stream Netflix. The other thing I got was a White Christmas in Virginia. Around 3pm it started snowing and hasn't stopped since!

Besides getting my pie maker early. Complete computer upgrade, windows 7 newly installed ( can't stand it)

Mentioned a while back that I'd like to learn Calligraphy. I was so bored and confined at the time. Thought they had forgotten. They picked me up a few things for that to get me started.

Jabbur,
We have Netflix set up with the Wii.. Love it. I like the set up on that more then the Roku box. I mostly use Netflix from my comp, while I'm cooking. so I'll never be without an old movie again.. Direct TV still misses us..

I got a Shun santoku knife. One of the best gifts I've ever received.

My husband and I gave up on buying each other gifts several years ago. We don't have kids. My parents give us a check every year, and we're debating between a computer upgrade (which I suspect will happen anyway) and a Wisconsin/Michigan trip (Michigan will be the last state that I have not set foot in; at least I don't think. Traveled a lot as a kid, so may have been there, but I don't think so). I also got a second pair of LL Bean flannel lined jeans, which I wear a lot since I walk a lot in sub-freezing weather. My sisters sent a box of citrus, which I'm loving.

I have no idea what I'm getting, it was backordered I do know where it's coming from. Shrek has tried to tell me a couple of times, but I keep cutting him off...I like surprises.

YES! I cannot wait to try it out. I'm going to make pizza later this week. I may pull out the Star Trek dishes for the occasion.
