What did everyone get for Christmas, and what did you give others?
I got a charmayne james saddle pad, a book, a new bit, and some clothes and money. I got my sister half chaps, my brother the PBR game for wii, made my mom pajamas, and I made my dad a CD of some special songs we like plus we got him some paintball stuff. Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas regardless of the gifts!

I got some really cool stuff this year that I'm super excited about (usually I end up getting stuff that I'll never use and then I feel bad because I never use it, yknow?). I also gave some cool stuff that I'm pretty excited about.

My brother and I got our dad a remote control plane (he's been hinting after one for quite awhile)
I gave my mom a really nice vegan cookbook (she's very allergic to A LOT of stuff and vegan cooking is the only type of cooking she doesn't have to worry about eating)
I gave my brother a really neat leather dinosaur keychain and a flannel/fleece coat thingy
My brother, my dad and I gave my mom a really nice Columbia Sportswear coat

I got:
one of those inside-less books (the kind that looks normal until you open it) from my brother (he MADE it o_O) Now I have somewhere to sneakily hide all sorts of sneaky stuff. haha
a green paisley pillow case from my mom
everything I need to make myself a new purse/bag from my mom. It's gonna be turquoise pleather on the outside and a green patterned fabric on the inside. I'm VERY excited about this.
a new memoryfoam mattress (I've had the same old mattress ever since I've been sleeping in a big person bed, so about 15 years) from both parents
a mix cd from my brother (hidden inside the book)
a book from my dad
$100 from my dad
2 pairs of earrings from my dad
a really nice plaid seatbelt belt from my mom
a nightshirt from my little old lady neighbor (hahaha, it's not the height of fashion, but I'll be warm)

I feel like I'm forgetting stuff, but I think that's it.
I haven't gotten my presents from the rest of my family yet. I'm assuming that it'll just be something like $200 since that's what I always get from them.

It was a great Christmas! Mostly because we all got along and we had a great day, but the presents were great too. haha
