I don't think I got a best present this year all of them are cool. Dishes, toaster oven, and a digital weather thermometer that tells you temp inside and has a part that you put outside to tell the temp out side. :) But the coolest little gift I got was a Canadian Mounty and horse - my parents got it for me from Canada it is a little Moose Mounty on a horse it's cute. The horse is kinda ugly but overall it is cool.

Oops was forgot about worst present - when I was young but getting older - still a kid - I decided I didn't want anymore dolls for presents - I was old enough not to play with them. Well I told this to my mom but the message didn't get relayed quick enough to my grandparents and they got me a semi-realistic looking baby doll. I wasn't happy with it but later I was more unhappy that I disappointed my grandparents by not being excited about it - but it did grow on me a bit but still makes me thing about being selfish and not being grateful to my loved ones for what they give me.

this year we did mostly stocking stuffers for christmas. My stocking stuffer (the one I Picked out and gave to people) got nominated 'best' this year. I found sewing patterns for 50c each, as opposed to the 12$ retail tag so I got a bunch and put them in stockings. that really complimented the new sewing machine.

i'm still thinking on the worst gift.

best: alodia got me an xbox and a bunch of games and second controller. between halo2 and the grand theft auto doublepack, i'll be playing for hours. (i even had to get a little in before work this morning)

worst: keanen, my brother in law, pretty much got me a wrapped cinderblock (half) from the barn last year. I so much wanted to keep it and give it back this year, but that did not work out. THEN, this year, he made a little sign on the comptuer and printed it out and wrapped it that said '25$ has been donated in your honor to the human fund' that had a picture of a baboon (think blue butt) at the top, and a clipart of a cowboy and businesmeen shaking hands. That was awesome.

I just remembered a worst gift! this year we attended a white elephant party with some of our friends from church. we brought an extra gift and snuck it into the pile. We had been baby sitting the computer of the people that were hosting the party and we returned it on the night of the party. everything was there but they keyboard, but they didn't notice. the keyboard was our third gift and opened by a random person during the party. the person that opened it really liked it. but then the host and hostest said.. "hey! that looks just like our keyboard?!!" thats a ncie one.. hey..... wait a minute.....

For best gift, check out what Leanna got me: a Hello Kitty ToasterDidn't really get any lousy gifts this year, though perhaps an overabundance of socks.

oh man, the white elephant keyboard cracks me up.

i want to know if the hello kitty toaster will toast real cats. maybe it's when kitty is cold - "oh, hello kitty, do you want to go in the toaster?"

lol.

if you do the linear blender correctly, you have it peel the carrot before it purays it.
juice anyone?
