    I got a bunch of ties. I like getting ties.

    We had my family over for Xmas Eve festivities last night. It was loud and chaotic, with lots of food, tons of presents and some beer. Good times. :)

    I got me some great winter weather bike/running shirts too.

    MizN 8 left for AR this morning and I am home waiting for my daughter to call from her mom's and tell me what she got and when she's coming over to open her stuff here.

    Then I am pretty sure I'll have to suffer thru Sweeney Todd at the movies since (like most 14 year old girls) she loves her some Johnny Depp.

    Mine sucks so far as I got paged at 7:30 and my poor kids are waiting for me to open gifts. I'm not sure how long they will hold off.

    XT cranks, bottle of tri-flow, some shirts, some money, gift cards, a book or 2, NWD8 and earthed 5 (on order or soemthing).

    Better question: what'd everyone give?
    Dad got some winter riding gloves, mom got 2 bags of birdseed, and my sister got a starbucks gift card.

    Out of my mind, back in a moment.
    Merry Christmas everyone.

    I've got a Marzocchi XC 700 SL in the mail at the moment (took advantage of the Wheelworld coupon) but other than that, I have no idea what I've got under the tree.

    Got a Wii! Never knew you had to be in shape to play video games, stretch beforehand. Jealous though, my brother got a Razor Ripstick, thing is sweet!!!! And the only thing I asked for this year, may have to sell the Wii for mine.

    Anyone in Maine needs to use their giftcards, I read that the government was taking possession of 60% of the value of unused gift cards after a couple of years. Hmmm...

    Hopefully, I'll get a late Xmas gift with a Patriots loss to keep them from going undefeated. Anyone remember the CHEATING scandal, seems we got great role models in sports nowadays. Bonds, the Patriots, 20-30 Florida State players, Michael Vick, Pac-Man, the list goes on and on.....

    i got a trip out to jackson hole for a week and my parents paid for half of a new pair of marmot gloves. that's all i'm really expecting right now, but i think my sister got me something and maybe something from the relatives.

    i'll be buying myself a few presents over the next few days, a marmot super hero softshell jacket and a dakine heli-pro pack.

    i prefer this one. no pesky mention of christianity. :D

    i got much sweet lovin' from the girlfriend, and from the girlfriend's parents: fuzzy slippers, a cookbook (heh), and christmas ornaments for our small-but-slowly-growing collection. my sister sent me something to the wrong address, and my parents' gift to me was paying for my residency interview travels + taking us out to a schnazzy restaurant last week.

    :)

    I had a fun day. We all went skiing - my hubby and one of our sons takes ski patrol duty which is fun on Xmas day. We gather in our private ski patrol chaletwith our patrol "family" and eat and ski and eat and ski. My 10 year old nephew got ski lessons and ski rentals from Aunt Geargrrl and hubby for xmas: he happily did laps on the bunny hill all day. I have him convinced to try the other lifts day after tomorrow. His disabled mom, who used to ski, came up with us and sat at the window and happily watched everyone all day. We'll try and get her in the disabled ski program this spring. Mr Geargrrl got to try out his new Cloudveil pants, and I had my first day of the season.

    no ski content, but hey it's way snowy out!!

    Happy Xmas everyone.

    Santa loves me! I got a Canon EF70-300mm f4-5.6 IS USM lense and a EF50mm/f1.8 II lense, a sweet wool bike jersey, bike socks, and a super cool stainless thermos! All in all, a very good year!
