What was your best Christmas gift this year?

My daughter gave me the most wonderful present of all.

She is 2 so she didn't get up until about 0800. I went to go get her once I heard her crying. When I walked into the room I found that she had removed her diaper in the night and smeared poo on everything she could reach. Beautiful, I love finger paints.

this was the first christmas that my family kinda sorta celebrated. My mom started putting up decorations a few years ago. And now that my brother is getting married we exchange gifts to make his fiance more comfterable.

I got Grado SR60i headphones. They're the best on the market, you need to spend 300 bucks to find any better. Don't buy BOSE, they're nice but not for the price!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I got to hang out with my little sisters for a few days and play with all their toys.

Also got a bunch of books about word-geekery.

Good luck, Sammy!

Well, and I don't want to get too ahead of myself as we had a letdown this past summer... but...

Some of you may remember back in April or May when I posted that I was going to be a dad... The original due date was supposed to be Christmas eve or Christmas day... A week or two after I posted, we found out the pregnancy was tubal and would not happen afterall...

Well, my wife was having a little nausea the week before last week... She took a test, and it was negative... So we just kind of wrote it off...

She was supposed to start her "cycle" this past Wednesday, the day before Christmas eve... She didn't...

So, the next day, Christmas eve, she decides to take a test... It comes back with a plus sign... She took another that night, and it comes back positive too...

We're not getting our hopes up yet, because she has some issues that make her conceiving a little difficult in the first place... However, she had her levels checked this morning via blood test and it also confirms and appears normal... She'll go again and get them checked Wednesday morning to see if they have doubled (they should double every 2 days) and then go in two weeks to have an ultrasound to see if everything looks normal and isn't tubal again...

So, keep me in your thoughts (and/or prayers if that is your thing... even if it isn't mine, I do believe it is a form of positive thought which holds some power) and maybe it will be legit this time... If so, that will be the best present I have ever gotten... ever...

Been through that myself about 2 years ago.

Prayers on the way....

Hope it works out for ya man. Have a Happy New Year.

Oil painting of the beach house that I spent all of my summers and weekends at growing up.

Cash.

Pampered Chef type Pizza baking stone.

Time spent with two of my grand parents. One of which could easily not be with us next Christmas.

That is truly a gift... I lost my only grandma that I have ever known (the other died before I was born) back in July, and this was our first without her...

Grandpa broke down at the dinner table while saying the blessing... They had been married 60 years... Sad stuff!

A Mark Ecko Boba Fett hoodie that will make you all tremble at my presence when you see it, if I let you see it.
