We got DD a 2-wheeler and she was so surprised. She's been wanting a bike for like a year. When she saw it, she literally gasped and put her hand over her heart. It was so cute!

And DH actually surprised me with a gift (he's not the gift-giving type lol). I got a Bamboo Capture and I'm so excited!!! It's so easy to use and lots of fun. My MIL got me a Bind It All (I picked it out lol) and a "check point friendly" laptop backpack.

But my biggest, bestest gift will get here tonight: My mom is flying in from Michigan! I'm super duper excited to see her. And I know she's excited to see her grandkids. :) But I'm also bummed because she mailed us our gifts earlier this month; I promised that I wouldn't open them until she got here...but I'm too impatient and I want to open them NOW! lol

Madi with 2 of hers, and you can see the hint of another on the floor :D

Ethan got THREE Lego Star Wars related things, TWO remote controlled vehicles, and Lego City set.
Madi got 2 Lego Friends sets (she now has every single set hehe), a package of My Little Pony (Cutie Mark Crusaders in their wedding duds), and a LOT of art supplies (including a USB-pencil sharpener :D)
They also got a CRAPTON of clothes, a couple movies, and Battleship, hehe

Me? I got Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift (perfume), and LOTS of Colts related stuff :D

Sarah, your Madi and my Gen would be great friends. Gen loves the lego friends sets--well, she loves all legos! :) Gen got 2 smaller Friends sets for Christmas (the tree house and Stephanie's outdoor bakery), plus set 30105 cuz it came in a plastic bag instead of a box. That went in her stocking cuz I could squish the bag to fit into it lol.

Madi apparently is missing TWO sets then ;) We found out she's missing the caravan/camping set (we've never seen it, so it must be new?) and the one you're talking about :D

One of Madi's favs is the treehouse! She smiled for a few days after we got that for her :D

I got my hubby's cooties for Xmas and have been sick as a dog for almost a week now. He was sick first and no matter how careful I was, I ended up with as well. Feeling a tad bit better today so things are looking up! I'm having a great Xmas despite all the coughing, blowing, sneezing, and wheezing. Merry Christmas everyone!

My boyfriend got me Just Dance 4---YAAAaaaAaAaAYyYyYyyYYYY! I've been wanting it but he bought me JD3 last year, so I knew he was getting me 4 this year.

My mom is taking me out tomorrow to get the TV I want, a 40" Toshiba with NetTV--WOOT!

I want to play JD4 right now, but I am going to force myself to wait until I get my big TV set up--so more playing on a 19" tv for this gal! :)

Nerd gifts: an Avengers calendar, a vintage comic book covers calendar, a superheroes set of pint glasses.

Oh, and my boyfriend got me this pillow:

You're probably like wtf but I saw it forever ago and proclaimed my love for it and he remembered! It's so comfy and I love pizza! hehe

A bunch of other stuff too from my sisters, but those are the ones I'm most excited about! ^_^

BWAHAHA! We didn't get a white Christmas here in TX. We had crazy weather: 70s in the morning, then rain, then it was in the 60s and now it's cooling down. But who cares? My mom's plane landed and she's on her way here! Yippee!

And we got DD JD4. SARAH! Did you see on Amazon? JD Disney is the special deal of the day! It's like half off! Go buy it!!!!!!!

I got some new dishes and some new silverware, and am (im)patiently waiting for HomeDepot to call to install my new flooring.

The boys got, among other things, Legos (4 new sets), Angry Birds (4 new games and a playdough creation set), 2 new Nabi 2 tablets, 2 new Nintendo DS systems and games. As long as I put out food and water for them, I might get away with sleeping all day, LoL!

My five kids all seemed to be happy with what they got as well. we found some really good deals this year.

Oh, it totally stinks being sick around the holidays. I was sick all of December. I'm finally feeling better. I wish Santa would just give me coal instead of the flu. ;)

I got a seagate 1tb ehd, and a new camera. The camera is a sony Taylor Swift Special Edition. My kids got many many fun gifts. Although I wish they were little again ! It is so hard to walk by toys in the store and not buy them !!! I want to buy FISHER PRICE LITTLE PEOPLE !!!! Anyway, check this out : SANTA brought Ghosts !!!!!!! GHOSTS !! I can not tell you the joy in our house every christmas morning , this happens increasingly so each year. The ghosts of Family members Gone Past ? All the little Children Spirits Coming to MY HOUSE and MY CHILDREN ? To enjoy the GREATEST MOMENT OF THE YEAR ? Please disregard my daughters skimpy pajamas. I lose this battle with her all year long. (We live in FL.) And my son would die to know I posted this pic of him, (He swears he isn't scratching anything). I did edit red eye, and the t-shirt to help it look like he isn't scratching anything either. LOL but otherwise no edits. CHECK IT OUT !http://forums.gingerscraps.net/http://i778.photobucket.com/albums/yy67/carly35/ghostxmasdayCarly_500_zpse02d2d03.jpgand second photo.. http://forums.gingerscraps.net/http://i778.photobucket.com/albums/yy67/carly35/GhostsxmasDayGio2012_500_zps115bd620.jpglets see if anyone can see these pics.

well, even though we can't see the pics, it still sounds like a great Christmas! :) You should be able to right-click the pic, click "copy image location," and then, here in the GS reply box, click the pictore of the "tree" square, and paste the link into the box. That should work for you. If not, then someone else is going to have to step in rotfl cuz that's all I know. ;)

We were all sick for Christmas -- Gabe and John (my husband) had the flu and I had something funky going on in my sinus'. We're all better now. We went to my parents house for the weekend right before Christmas...Gabe was spoiled of course. I got some fun stuff including gift certificates to a local gifty type of shop where I picked up a Vera Bradley purse, wallet and tote bag...that was technically still before Christmas so I got an additional huge tote bag for free as well with my purchase since they were running a special deal. My husband received several gift cards to Kohls...since that's his favorite place to shop and a few other things.

We returned home Christmas Eve evening and had Christmas at home. Gabe got train stuff, board games (since he loves those), Nintendo DS games, and some other things as well. My husband added to his collection of Batman stuff and for me... I stuck a tote bag and a lunch back from ThirtyOne gifts under the tree. I had purchased them months prior when my sister had a party, but I never opened them and I knew Gabe would want mommy to have something under the tree to open and I really didn't need anything. I did want a necklace...which I ordered from Etsy...see picture.

i was going to do photos but no idea when i'll get around to it...so i'll just share LOL

i got a new stereo system for my car...stereo and speakers with all the fancy stuff. now if i can get dh to put the speakers in (old ones r blown and he does this for a living) i'll be set LOL. some pj's, scarf and cool arm fingerless gloves, also a stand mixer. not the really good one (i would have killed him because we couldn't afford one) but its by the same maker its a kitchen aid and its almost as good (won't last as long but by then maybe we can afford it) i actually asked for this or no one would get me a kitchen appliance LOL. i needed this and with no little kids around and having all of what we need and most of what we want (cheaper price anyway) it was on my list. my son got me a new bottle of "Happy" which was sooooo awesome as i needed a new bottle. (i can only wear about 4 fragrances without causing a migraine) and some other little stuff.

hubby got 2 mugs which i'll be scrapping at a later date...one is of us and one is of our kids that i made and ordered plus 3 lbs of cuban coffee. also i was able to replace his wedding band. (this was the big gift) his old one had broke 3 times from wear and last summer when he lost his job it was something he sold for gold to pay the bills...so i gave him a new one which he was so happy about...this one is a tungsten so should hold up to a mechanic.

my son got belts, hats and stuff. he also got a water bottle i had printed with his ff stuff on it and a nice tin wall plaque that is feux antique of an old fashioned firetruck and ff and says VOLUNTEER FIRE FIGHTER...finding the words Volunteer on anything is very hard to do. also a really neat pirate carved knife (he's a collecter)

so thanks to the wonderful cyber monday sales and other online items at 70%-80% we were able to buy big ticket items and had fun as usual. we did get to have an alarm go off when my son opened his package and scare the crap out of him LOL

Thanks. I was trying to wait until I had another child (since we're only probably going to have two), but I figured I'd just get one now and later. :) It was really not expensive either. Mine was $23, plus $3 shipping (I think). I got it from Oak Hill Designs esty page (http://forums.gingerscraps.net/www.oakhilldesigns.etsy.com).
