Obligatory Christmas Post

I've survived two days of family and holiday spirit, and it's nice to get back home and just relax. Too bad I have to go back to work tomorrow.

All in all, it was busy but enjoyable holiday for everybody in the family. Among the gift highlights (from and for all the folks in the family):

  • Some Nintendo DS Games: The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga, and my daughter got a Hamster game for the DS (can't remember off the top my head which one).
  • A Cuisinart Power 11 food processor.
  • A silver 4GB iPod Nano. I've finally joined the 21st century and gotten an MP3 player.
  • A Craftsman 2 gal. Wet-Dry vac.
  • A few Cranium games: Triple Triumph (I enjoy this one) and Hoopla (great party game) and the kids got a Carnival Clubhouse Super Fort (we already had the base Super Fort, so we can now build a fort through our entire house, if need be).
  • A Nikon Coolpix L11 digital camera (far better than our old and dated three megapixel Canon).
  • My daughter also got a Pink Polariod digital camera from grandma (which she bought on sale months ago). That's probably her favorite gift, next to her newly madeover American Girl doll (we got a new head for it from the American Girl Hospital).
  • My youngest daughter's favorite toy? Probably this little dinky drum that you can take in the bath. Nevermind all the other cool toys she got, this is the one she bangs on all the time.
  • Some much needed clothes (remember how when you were a kid and you hated getting clothes? Not so much anymore).
  • The kids got one of those wooden train table sets that you saw at Costco.
  • Got some gift certficates to Applebees, Costco, Lowes, and Netflix (1 year sub, which I've never done, so that'll be cool).
  • Movies: A Mel Brooks movie collection (has all of his classics), Airplane, and Gremlins.
  • My annual tool from my brother in-law (this is always handy and appreciated). This time it was a set of nut drivers.
  • A set of Geek temporary tatoos (they look like this).
  • (Forgot this one) A new, big, stick bag to hold all my mallets and drum sticks that were overflowing my old stick bag.
  • And I'm sure I'm forgetting something, but that's the bulk majority of what all of us and our girls got (the kids got a bunch more little things, but I can't think of them off the top of my head).
All in all, a great Christmas was had by all (kids were spoiled rotten, as always), I just really wish i didn't have to go back to work tomorrow (especially considering tomorrow's a heavy tourism travel day and the roads are in bad shape).

So, what else did everybody get?
