1/3 of beef - pretty good gift! Of course, it probably wouldn't last long around here with all these teenagers! LOL!
I didn't get anything from Rick or the kids that I didn't know about (heck, I even wrapped most of it! :) LOL!) I got a gold chain and a beautiful gold bracelet (what I specifically asked for). The kids got me the new Hoyle Card Games and Hoyle Board/Puzzle Games (which I picked out myself), Rick got me seasons 1 & 2 of Bones (saw them when he asked me to wrap them *rolleyes*), Bill got me a gorgeous Celtic blanket (which he showed to me to make sure I liked it in case he needed to send it back *sigh*). Rick and I also "gave" each other a new set of Paula Deen pots and pans (ours are falling apart) and he got me a new emersion (have no idea how to spell that) (stick) blender. I've had them for like 2 months, but haven't been able to use them. Oh, and the kids and Rick also got me a recipe box full of Crock Pot Recipes and a cookbook of diabetic crockpot recipes (I think they are trying to tell me something). Actually, I made out like a bandit this year. I don't normally get nearly so much. I think Rick was trying to make up for no real birthday. He didn't need to, but it was nice, anyway.
The best part? We paid cash for everything, so NO BILLS!
