    The big gifts were:

    Nikon D7000 from Ian!

    Keurig from my parents.

    I also got a few sweaters, PJ pants, a giftcard to Loft, and a bunch of other small things I can't think of at the moment :p

    Did he have to write a letter to monsieur eaton for it? ;)

    The hockey sweater is one of my favourite stories. I am legally obligated to love it as I am Canadian.

    I got a pug wearing a suit necklace from my bro.

    A pink chi iron from my mum

    And $600 from "grandpa" which made me cry. Mum and Joey sold me and my brothers truck we inherited sort of from grandpa when he died a couple years ago because we were just sinking more money into it. So mum split the money we got between Ryan and I and to pay off some of the repairs.

    Haven't opened my stocking yet.

    My "big" Christmas will be on Thursday after my parents arrive at our house on Wednesday night, so I only opened one item today, on DH's insistence: Photoshop Elements! :D

    Mostly little stuff this year; my biggest thing was a heated seat cover for my car. Meg has already requested I just put it on the passenger seat for her.

    I got a new spot cleaner for the (eventual) area rugs in my new house, a blender, a couple of kitchen towels, cutlery organizing trays, and a cherry pitter and apple wedger. My dad bought me some new tools (an auto-hammer!) and a little kit of sanding drums for my Dremel to use when I do the dogs nails. I asked for three different agility foundations DVDs and figured somebody would just pick based on price range and buy one... my mom couldn't decide and just bought all THREE for me. D= I also got the flatwork book I wanted, a herding book, and a book on positive training for conformation. My sister bought me a My Little Pony shirt (with an 80'S pony on it rather than the new ones, sweet!!) and this funny stuffed animal thing, I can't tell if she made it or bought it, but it looks like a misfit toy and I love it... it's my new snuggy at night since the dogs refuse to cuddle with me LOL.

    Haven't opened stockings yet but mine is apparently empty because my mom couldn't decide what to put in my stocking since I don't eat candy anymore. I gave her like eight suggestions when she said that, haha. I put stuff in my parent's stockings and the dogs of course all have theirs, but my dad is still asleep, sooooo *twiddles thumbs*

    Nothing, I wont get my gift until I get home after work and the kids come running up to
    me and excitedly tell me all what Santa brought.

    Then I will have the most precious gift of all.
