So What'd You Get?

Knowing that Santa "came early" for some people (and because I wanted to make this thread first!) post what you received. Pics would be nice also.

We don't do ours until 6am or so, then have breakfast. After playing around with our new "toys" for some time, we clean up a bit, watch whatever's on, go to extended family's house to have dinner there. Really fun times.

Re: So What'd You Get?

I got a Radio Shack digital multimeter for Christmas which was really weird because I had been looking to buy it for some time and my parents knew nothing about that. Also, it was the only present I didn't guess right before opening.

Re: So What'd You Get?

New Scott riding goggles, a lot of clothes (which i needed anyways), then a decent amount of cash that is going to the bank for now - either going to be spent on a lift/tires for my Jeep in combination with my tax refund, or will continue to be banked if I decide to just buy a newer pick-up next year or the year after).

Re: So What'd You Get?

Wow, very nice Akash! 4 gigs?!? I'm assuming you either do very high end gaming or video editing. And, are you sure you wanted that video card? For another couple of months and the price of a nice mid-range PC, you could get the new GeForce 9800. all others r pwnd to da max.

Anyway, I'm patiently anticipating the morning so we can open our gifts.

That scene has always been one of my cinematic favorites. Please, someone with Photoshop skilz, please post an image of Ralphie with his Red Ryder and Dave's face!

Re: So What'd You Get?

Here in Germany, Christmas gift time was yesterday (Christmas Eve) after dinner. I received an absolutely exquisite diamond necklace an earring set from my Grandmother-in-law.

I will be having Christmas with my family when I am able to see them again, and hope that I will be getting another piece of handmade furniture (by my father) for my new house.

Merry Christmas to all!
