After several years of doing the overboard xmas make-up thing a la Finally Awake's thread: /http://www.jehovahs-witness.net/members/private/243965/1/I-think-I-went-overboard-LOL, we now try to set limits, the main one being that gifts are primarily for the grandkids.

This year I got a luxurious, super-comfy new computer chair, a sweater, two beautiful scarves (one from Spain), several pairs of wild earrings, and lots of kisses and hugs and I love you's. It was a very nice xmas.
My good friend Jeff got me a book about travel in China, my siblings bought me socks (which I love), my dad got me a "Life is Good" jacket with hat. Another relative got me a "Life is Good" t-shirt and another got me a "Bears" jersey.

I got a very nice business card holder from a friend of mine who also designed a logo for a business that I started in November and also on Christmas day I spent time with friends who are also my co workers at their house, had a fun time, this is my second year celebrating Christmas and now Christmas has alot more meaning, actually Christmas has been teaching me alot, Christmas is a time for family/friends together, time of peace/joy, its a refresher for a start of the upcoming New Years, I want to say happy new years to everyone on here.
Spent the day with friends, we had a Mexican feast. I got a new coffee pot and a gift certificate to the nicest restaurant in town. Most fun was hanging out with my friends.
i got a 42" flat screen tv, just a cheapy for downstairs, for those hot days/nights when it's cooler downstairs than upstairs,
that was my gift to myself
