I have had a wonderful Christmas! I got: A Kindle Fire (SO exicted about this!) The Smurfs Movie Some crafty goodies - (Stamps, a scoring board, an airbrush) Bath and Body Works stuff and some nailpolish A Cupcake photo holder and piggy bank (I love cupcakes!) Still have to open presents at mom's when we head over for dinner. I have been very blessed! :) The best gift though, is that my children love everything they got and have been playing their little hearts out all day! :)

I did buy for the baby though and we do birthday gifts for each other. My mom is out of town so we are doing Christmas Wednesday night with me/bf, her, and my brother and SIL. The best thing of the day was how excited my bf was by the Cowboys zip up I got him. He had no idea and he loved how "clean" it is :) I am most excited about the gift I got my brother that I purchased in July. I cannot cannot wait to give it to him. In case he or my SIL are on here, I won't tell what it is but I'm sure I'll post a photo after I give it to him. I can't wait!! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

I was on the naughty list this year.... and am in the doghouse with dh. Money was tight so I only intended to do anything for the boys but stuff all our stockings.... DH said he didn't want any candy in his stocking.... on a budget it's hard to put what he did want, so I took the 1.99 lightning deal movies and put them in his stocking....He's crying foul since he didn't get me anything (he told me to stuff my own stocking so I put avon demos in it-- going to get them anyway for the biz...) and now he says I bought him Christmas gifts.... (not really, 3 cheap movies cost the same as the candy would have cost...). Can't win, we are going to do our Christmas in March when bonus comes, if the bills from the move are caught up... I need either a new laptop or a tablet. Wouldn't have been feasible before Christmas...

The best was gift was that my son had a really great Christmas and really enjoyed all we gave him. I also made dh cry, I got him a family crest ornament, and he absolutely loves it. Dh got me a new camera, that I've had my eye on for a year, I am absolutely in love with the pictures it's taking. Plus, I got gift cards from my parents, in-laws, boss and employee's. (I must be harder to shop for than I think) and Bath & Body works lotion and a pretty decoration from my sister in law.

I got: a kindle touch (didn't want the fire since it will be strictly for reading and its easier on my eyes, plus have a touchpad already) entire collection of home improvement, I think its 8 seasons 4 or 5 new John Deere tee shirts plus a John Deere hoodie All of the Anne of Green Gable movies (have them on vhs but they are wore out!) $150+ in amazon gift cards Black Eyed Peas game for Kinect John Deere scrapbook stuff plus my parents bought us a huge cooking stove thing for camping, they were so impressed they thought of something we don't already have lol. We never bought it for ourselves because we were perfectly happy with our small stove but it will be nice to have a larger one. I got other random crap I can't remember at the moment and we haven't had Christmas with the in-laws yet. I hope everyone else had an awesome Christmas too!

Best gift was seeing my children's faces when they opened their gifts. DD13 was so shocked she got a new laptop and a tablet. DS16 was shocked with his tablet. DH was thrilled too with his Tony Stewart championship jacket and other stuff. I did get a 42" TV 1080p 240hz that is 3D with Internet apps, still waiting for DH to connect it.

Some extremely nice parents of a student at the school found out about my camera and tablet being stolen and brought me a kindle fire, a camera, and cash. I love them and appreciate them so much. They made my heart happy, but I don't think I can accept such a fabulous gift from them. My principal says I can, but I am not comfortable with it. Remembering a post here about kids with lunch charges, I took the cash to the lunch room to help cover some of them. We have over 600 in charges at the school. This will cover a third of them. I got 3 ornaments from my other students, a coffee mug, a hummingbird feeder, a drink tumbler, and fuzzy socks!!! I love fuzzy socks!!!! From my daughter (19 and in college) I got a sticker for my car. Utm mom, a cross pen (she got it at a thrift shop type place, I told her not to get me anything lol) and a wallet I picked out and paid for because I don't want her wasting her money on me! She also did my stocking and got me a slinky and my ferrero raffaelo candies and a christmas throw. From my son 22, I bought myself a camera bag to replace the one that was stolen My husband got me a sweater and a pair of touch gloves so I can still use my phone I got some great chocolate and a notebook and a calendar from my sisters and their kids, but what I liked best was seeing my nieces, all 3 of them, liking their presents from me. I got 2 of them (19 and 17) cameras, and the third one (8) a netbook.

I think you must be loved by your students for the parents to want to replace items that were stolen. They probably know that you use your tablet and camera for school stuff also and want you to be able to continue your good work.

We bought a house two weeks before, so that was our big gift. I have been on a search for the perfect drinking glasses- the hubs found them. From my parents, I got a bluray player, a Vera Bradley, and new flooring for the house.
