    Anyone get anything fun? Since I buy most of my own toys, I got mostly clothes.

    With our first child on its way, the wife and I decided to skip giving presents to each other and focus on getting ready. I'll find out later today what my parents got us, but they specialize in wacky gifts that end up in the attic. :shrug:

    Well, Santa delivered a great present to me this Christmas, a new Philips DVDR-985 DVD Player/Recorder.

    Actually, I did have to take Mrs. Santa to Best Buy, point out the player, confirm the price, study the extended warranty and wait for a 10% off B.B. coupon to come in the mail, but boy was it worth it.

    Other than that, I was totally surprised by my children :lol:

    I got money. I buy what I want when I see it all year long, so to try and find something that I want come x-mas is usually pointless cause I already have it. Made about $600.00, still more to come tho.

    I also usually buy what I want throughout the year, I get a few small gifts and occassionally a bigger gift like a vcr or something similar. I think some people go overboard on buying gifts when there are already too many bills to pay that cannot afford things as it is, and should make it more of a thoughtful unique gift from the heart with meaning instead of value.

    I got a blue sweater/long sleeve t-shirt, have not seen the others yet.

    Chris,
    Don't kid yourself....
    That's not just a Christmas present for your daughter.
    That's a Christmas present for the whole family.
    That's the best kind of present a family can give to each other.
    Something that everyone will enjoy.
    My wife and I started giving "mutual" presents many years ago.
    And it is so much fun deceiding what we will do each year.
    Next year a HDTV might be the 'ticket' for you.
    Your wife and daughter might not know how to appreciate HD but they will love the big screen.
    .....you will know!

    Toshiba 57HDX82...let's see, anything else?
    nah, that's it :D :D :D :D

    although, moving from a 32" direct view at 12', I now REALLY know what people are talking about when they mention the drastic PQ differences between DBS stations :eek:
