    I got silk pjs from DH, embroidered kitchen towels, lots of gift cards to Connecting Threads, two new Go Dies, a neat chili pepper shaped pin cushion, a box of fat quarters, and my favorite from my oldest DD, a new Roku streaming instant movie box for my tv. DH got a Roku too! And the most useful gift I think I've gotten in a long time: a fur lined long mitt with an ice scraper attached. :-D
    I had a great Christmas with the family and now I need a nap.

    I got a pair of boots and a bathrobe from one daughter, a necklace, some hand-blown glass icles and a gift card for $100 to my favorite material store from another and I don't know yet what I got from my youngest daughter. She hasn't arrived yet, will be here in about an hour or so. And probably chocolates from my son but he isn't here yet either.

    My DH got me leather gloves and my Dream Hoop for my emboidery machine, gifts cards from my step children, pottery bowl and coffee mugs that my oldest son made, a phone call from my youngest son who lives in China, breakfast with my dad (mom passed in May) and breakfast with kids and MIL and FIL here also. Tomorrow all my husbands family will be coming after everyone gets out of church for an easy dinner and more family time. Very good time was had by all.

    I got the juicy couture sewing machine charm from DD and a Nook Reader from DH. I also got a gift card to Joann's. Yay! Every year my former boss sends me the Annual White House Ornament - this year it is a music theme. But, the best gift was the gift of prayer my Mama gave us over the telephone.

    I got the nicest softest Liz Claborne thin fleece pjs. They are so pretty I wore them all day.....they are an animal print but are a soft grey and cream. I got some cooking things I wanted, some premixed soup kits (my gd and I love soup), some accessories for my Kuerig coffee machine, some chocolates and a gift certificate for fabric. The best gift I got was when my DGD came over and gave me a big hug and said I would love you even if you didn't buy me anything. (I know that is why I did)

    I have finally got through to my DH and kids. I got a gift certificate to my LQS, gloves (FM), opened a box full of fat quarters and rulers! I was excited because after all these years they decided to listen to me.

    My TV upstairs in the living room was dying a slow death so DH bought me a 42" (my old one was 27"!!)!! Santa gave my DH a large denomination gift card for Home Depot. He's been wanting some new tools :)

    We don't really buy each other gifts for Christmas because we get what we want or need all year long :)

    I got a certificate for a massage, chocolate, Estee Lauder perfume and lotion, some pottery and a Barnes and Noble gift card.

    DH and I bought a Kuerig single-cup coffeemaker as a gift to us both.

    Most of what I got was from my kids. Since I am planning to buy a new sewing machine, DH is going to pay for part of it when I decide what I want as the rest of my Christmas present.

    It has been a nice Christmas, especially since all four of our kids are home.

    We had a wonderful day and I got sew many wonderful gifts. My oldest daughter gave me a gift certificate from a clothing store. Second daughter gave me Fabricland giftcard and a quilt book called Creative Sewing Techniques by Machine. Son gave me a gift card to Chapters and a book called Redwork from the Workbasket by Rebecca Kemp Brent. My Mom gave me Quilts from Grandmothers Garden. My husband gave me the John Flynn quilting frame, several Kitchen-Aid items and money to get some feet for my machine.

    My best present was my 8 year old grand daughter telling me that I give the best presents and how much she love what I made for her and her sisters.

    DGD,DD and family and DSIL gave us gift cards. Hubby and I got new off road tires for our Z-71 4 wheel drive truck. A month and half ago we got a new botttom freezer refrigerator.
    We buy anything we want all through the year, pick it ourselves and is always just what we want.
