The truth, 03.30 am on the 25th I passed a kiney stone that had been giving me gip. I was so relieved and awake I went out and made a snowman in the garden.

The best I got was the Wii. My sone connected my netflix to it and now I can stream movies and shows to my tv instead of the computer. I downloaded a few games too. Yesterday was the first day I didn't turn it on since Christmas!

I received several things that I really liked, but I suppose the one that most pleasantly surprised me was a tea chest with lots of different teas. The chest is beautiful - like a miniature piece of furniture and looks really well sitting on the china cabinet. Our daughter does lots of planning on her list so many times her gifts are quite unexpected.

My grown niece with whom I've been very close, especially since the death of her alcoholic mother, gave me a "Mom" mug from the school where she is earning her PhD. Made me cry. I love her so much and really feel like the Mom she never had. I don't have children of my own (by choice), so this was especially meaningful. I've had the honor of becoming "Mom" to all four of my nieces.

I received a new kitchen table! It's kind of got a European cafe feel to it - steel rod iron.

4 place settings. Each piece is handmade and all slightly different. It's a very unique set, I love it.

santa brought us a wii, and we haven't watched a tv show since. i got my son the rapala fishing game and he's addicted. if he's not fishing, he's boxing or bowling.
