I kept it
When I read it had a HD video camera I decided to keep it. I've been wanting a digital vid camera and maybe this will suffice. I already registered it and played with it a little. The speakers are better than my laptop!

ROFL! Reminds me of the aunt who wrapped up her cat!

Mrs 40 C says I've been nothing but bad and should not expect a visit from Santa.

Honestly I don't know what she is talking about. I've been mostly good at least part of the time.

We lived in the same town at that point and she knew I wanted those boots, she worked a deal with the owner to split the pair until after Christmas, she knew if I had one I would go get the other. I managed by pooling all my Christmas money that year.

Awww. I can see why you miss her.

Then again, you could've gotten around stomping on one boot, PF. I have no idea how, but it maybe could be possible.

My iPad is wrapped and under the tree. Can't wait to play with it on Christmas day. My Hubby and I both have gifts that we shopped together for and so we know what we are getting from each other. Works for me! There will be little surprises in the stockings. :)

Not sure what Santa has in store for me. There's not much I want and those items on my wish list are all pretty simple, bordering on practical and/or mundane.

Glenn is impossible to buy for as he constantly says he doesn't need anything and has all the clothes he will ever need for the rest of his life, so Mrs. Santa has to get creative.

However, there is a huge wrapped package with my name on it that is making me crazy. There is NOTHING on my list that would be in a box this gigantic. The only thing I can surmise is that Mr. Claus has put something in this big box to make me nuts or there are several things in it.

I've been a good girl, though, I haven't even tried to move or lift the box to get any sense of how heavy it is. I may be going bonkers but I far prefer the excitement I'll enjoy when it comes time to open it.

Christmas morning will be soooooo much fun.
