A bunch of little $hit and few small things she asked for plus 10 $100 bills stapled together in a nice fanned out array in a MUSHY Christmas card.
After all ..one size fits all...the colors always perfect...and you know she won't return it

Merry Christmas people

hp500efi, You're right about that..but ours is grown but I did get him and extended warrantee on his new 'Burban that put a smile on his face

Santa was good to the wife this year. She got the pond kit she wanted. (She wants a pond in the back yard. ) And she wanted a digital camera. Now I do not have to ask friends to take pics and email them to me.

Christmas was good!!

This year we decided to NOT get each other anything since she wants a new house. I got her a shorty leather jacket and a bunch of stuff for the kids to give her along with some gift certificates for her to go shopping for clothes.

I asked for nothing this year cause I just got too much stuff already. I got a bunch of stuff anyhow.

Kids had a huge haul.

Last year was the YukonXL for her so I reckon my average is still pretty high.
