I think what he meant to say was, "I got them some really cool things and really excited to see and play with them myself."

Last year I got XBox 360 for the kids. My wife accused me of getting it for me. But this year, there will be no confusion on the gifts or who they are for.

I get my Christmas gift in a couple of months. Hopefully a paint gun set-up for my race plastics.

Honestly this year, for some reason I just dont care. I told the wife I dont want anything but she still got me something. I am just not into it this year.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Just do what Jack Sparrow on the Pirates of the Carribean would do "The code is more of a guidline" Therefore, you can open the gifts today .

It is probably due to the weather. It has been nasty this fall and winter thus far .

Despite the fact that today was so cold it made me want to turn around and head back to TX immediately...I am LOVING this Christmas. I can't wait to give my gifts to people; also, I am excited because I didn't have much of a list so everything under the tree for me is a surprise and I love surprises. I'm making xmas cookies tomorrow and I never get to bake. It's freaking snowing out and that's awesome-- I love coming up here and getting the "total holiday package" complete with lights and xmas music and snow.... Also, we have a full hosue this year and after missing out on Thanksgiving I am exited to be with my family. I really LOVE christmas...I freaking LOVE it, and I think that I am the opposite of Tony this year-- I'm more into it than usual.

Just because you Canadians don't believe in Jesus doesn't mean you can go ruining the holiday for the rest of us, Scrooge.
