My Santa got me a new Rolox Watch and I traded in the old one and got a lot of money for it so the new one wasn't too costly.

A friend gave me a cute sewing basket with cats on it, and some Mexican chocolate. She also gave us a microwave oven. My secret pal at work gave me a cat cookie jar, a pot holder, and cookie mix. One of my students gave me a ceramic bell with a cardinal on it, another gave me a box of candy canes, and another gave me a bible. And my sweetie gave me two bottles of liquid bubble bath (lavendar & chamomile, and cucumber & melon), a box of Calgon Moisturizing Spa Bath, 2 'Ove' Gloves, a watch, an infared heated back massager, and the DVD "The Bear," which we just finished watching. My daughter Nancy said she has some things for us, but she hasn't had a chance to send them yet. My poor sweetie didn't fare as well, but he is happy. I got him six cologne/aftershave sets (he loves to smell good).

Cool

DH bought me a laptop. I love it. Now I can be online and watch my cooking shows (or whatever) at the same time. Kids also bought me a lovely set dishes that have snowmen on them. I am most thankful for time with immediate and extended family and just being together.

Not wanting to make anyone else jealous, but I got a present from my youngest son (who knows me well). It's labeled "Redneck Bubble Bath". It is a small packet of beans with the instructions; "cook and eat beans before getting into bathtub."

Merry Christmas

Buck

nothing material, just the company of my dearly loved girl who was able to drive down to be with me...priceless. We decided to save the money, and apply it to a vaction.

I got a new Norton IM200 sharpening stone system that uses three diffferent grit blocks that rest partially submerged in an oil bath. I had been using uber-old sharpening stones that were kinda banged up and needed replacement.

Also got a bunch of CD's, DVD's, tools, and gift cards.

Heading over to Crate & Barrel's site to blow some gift cardage...

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Tomorrow I'm gonna' do some cookin'.
