Trans Siberian Orchestra
This was our Christmas gift from one of my brothers.  A lot of fun and reminiscent of the 80's. Lots of big hair!!  The light show and most of the music is great.

New Cuisinart Pots and Pans
Gift from my bro and sis-inlaw.  Can't wait to start cooking!!

Chocolate Cracker Candy

Best Gift
My son gave me the best gift.  When I woke there was a note on my door with a clue.  The first "find" was chocolate covered pretzels.  2nd was a bottle of carbonated lemonade, 3rd was frozen pizzas and the 4th was my son to enjoy a movie night together.  It doesn't get better than that!!!!

  1. Based on those gifts I'd say you had a great Christmas (Not that it's all about the gifts, but there was obviously a lot of thought and love put into everything you received)!
