I got some Emu boots, jacket, smellies, cd, cardi, gilet and my best gift was a picture on canvas of my beautiful Evita (fur baby) who we lost in September. We already had one of Brandon. I miss them so much. The moggies got a new scratcher and they are so happy. Not seen some of them for the day as they will not get off it :lol:

I got the one thing I really wanted, a wine cooler. It will hold up to 46 bottles. Now I don't have to take up space in my refrigerator or flash chill a bottle because I forgot to put it in the refrigerator. I also received my traditional Jeopardy and Golf desk calendars, a couple of ties, a heart rate monitor for when I am exercising, a couple of videos, a belt and a few other sundry items.

Today I received a Garmin GPS (I really don't need this...hmm), 2 Mickey Mouse dressed as Elvis figurines, Elvis karoke (which I am going to kick butt at!), a change purse filled with $55 in change to put in my car, a Malificent memo holder, an Evil Queen tape dispenser, a tiger figurine, some pjs, 3 gift certificates for a 30 minute massage, the Family Guy DVD set and some other stuff.

I got some lovely prezzies from OH, though at his own admission most of them are for both of us!!

We have been talking about getting a telescope for a while as we both love watching the moon and stars, and sit out at night for as long as we can when the weather isn't too bad. Where we live now has very little ambient light and when it's a clear night we can see so many stars. So he got me (for that read *us* :) ) a telescope and tripod which is awesome, and I'm very pleased with :thumbsup: He also got 4 Phillips Astronomy books to start us off. The intention is that it is a hobby we can take up together from scratch (and as it's the sort of thing that means we can still have a glass of wine whilst we're doing it it's is a bonus :D ) Methinks I will have TONS of Questions for Skywatcher and Watchinherskip in the Hobby section :unsure:

Of course he forgot to buy the batteries for it (in time-honoured Christmas style) so we won't be trying it out till tomorrow :rolleyes3:

He also got a Mackenzie Thorpe (local artist) limited edition signed framed digital pigment print (5 out of 18)

A Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb musical box perfume set, choccies and a Band of Brothers box set.

My family got me some nice things. Some lovely toiletries, gorgeous hat and scarf set, Prada perfume, necklace and earrings, lots of choccies, some wine and some creme de cassis (mmm!). They also got some treats and collar for Sorrel, and some nice new diamante collartags for the pusscats!

One of the people I work for sent me a gift box of Molton Brown toiletries....gorgeous!!!

Here is a photo of the print DH got for me

A blast from the past is my Vintage Bristish friend talking Stacey , with case and outfits . She was my favorite Barbie when I was a kid .
