from left to right:
6 megapixel camera, Santa's Coal (coal-shaped gum!), Crash Pad (for when people end up at my house overnight), uber-padded guitar case, dremel w/175 accessories, car visor cd holder, and uber soft slippers. and some pajamas and socks :(

i'm going car shopping next week (hopefully!) so that'll be like a late christmas present...

edit: well, from what my mom told me today, there probably wont be a car, and being allowed to live at home is my most expensive christmas present...

So what'd you get. I really wanted a new amp but my mom had other things in mind. She kept asking me what I wanted then after I told her, she would say "I know exactly what I'm getting you". I still had a pretty good Christmas though.

Here is what I got (I'll get some pictures when I have it all together):

Delta 10" Table Saw
Delta Vacuum System (Hooks up to the table saw to keep the dust out of my lungs)
Hitachi Fix/Plunge Base Router
Work Bench with Back wall and 4 Drawers
Espresso Machine (so I don't have to go to Starbucks anymore)

Here is what I gave:

Dad: Samsung 50" Plasma TV (FP-T5084)
Mom: Thomas Blacksheer Ebony Visions "Little Blue Wing" (1st ornament in this collection and the most sought after ornament in the collection. We have been trying to find it for years and it was the final one to complete her entire collection)
Thomas Blacksheer Ebony Visions "Heavenly Peace" (This ornament was broken in the process of remodeling our house the past year, so I got it to replace the broken one)
Restored a wooden rocking chair that my dad have her when she was pregnant with my older sister

Sisters: iTune Gift Cards

Nephew: Optimus Prime Transformer
Star Wars Anakin Skywalker Transformer
Personalized Transformer/Spiderman/Star Wars Stationary to work on his handwriting and write me letters

Niece: The Series of Unfortunate Events Hardcover Box Set (Books 1-13)

what i asked for: video camera ($110 on EBay) Creative Zen Touch ($80 on EBay) and then afterwards i told my mom i wouldnt mind my own dremel set.

what i got:6 megapixel camera, Santa's Coal (coal-shaped gum!), Crash Pad roll-out sleeping mat (for when people end up at my house overnight), uber-padded guitar case, dremel w/175 accessories, car visor cd holder, and uber soft slippers, pajamas and christmas socks that i'll never wear!

what i gave:
mom: slow cooker w/locking lid & carry handles because she does a lot of cooking for events and stuff, plus her old one is 10+ years old
dad: A Christmas Story ornament. its the crate that opens up and has the Leg Lamp inside! and every time you open it, it plays a quote from the movie.

I plan to really get them nice things once I get out of school and get a solid career, so hopefully I can make up for it then..haha. I guess you could count my straight A's and 4.0 as a gift to them. :D

Lets stick to the topic guys. If you wish to discuss/argue about faith or lack there of, please do it somewhere else.

Thanks.

My cousins and aunt came over today and I got some gift cards from them and some Bvlgari Cologne. I love when people buy me cologne because I can't smell, so I never know what to buy. My aunt just so happens to sell work in the cologne section at Macys, so I got some good stuff.

My sister's family are coming in 2 weeks, can't wait because we are going to do everything all over again.
