The Official 'Post What You Got For Christmas' Thread

Recommended Posts

No fishing stuff yet; I really didn't ask for any.  However, I've only done my wife's side of the family which is done on Christmas Eve, and my family does our deal Christmas morning.  My uncle is a Skeeter Pro-Staffer that fishes the Stren Series, and he always gives me a box full of baits from his sponsors.  

So far I have received:

A North Face Parka

3 pairs of True Religion jeans (the wife got them for me, and I did need some jeans)

3lbs of Seas Candy (is there any other?!)

A Meucci pool cue from my bro (I used to shoot pool daily years ago, but not anymore.  I can still muster a strong 5 speed I imagine).  

A couple of random things like a Leathermer and some cobalt tools as well.

I still have my side of the family tomorrow, but that is pretty much going to be it for the 'big' gifts.  We exchange smaller gifts on my side of the fam...$50 and under (except for the parentals, which will give me money).   So post up what you got....I'll put some picks up tomorrow of my crap.  Everyone is excited about their presents,  so no shame in telling us all about what you scored.  Let's see it!

We really cut back this year.

My son got me a spool of 10lb test line (Stren) and a Crawdad Rat L Trap

I got a tank gauge for my Propane BBQ grill from my wife along with a remote controlled helicopter.  (Great way to kill time this winter as I figure out how to fly the thing  ;D  )

My parents are giving me a Lowes gift card.  I'll be using that on my boat restoration.  

All in all I'm ready for the new year and spring to get here.

Only the kids are getting gifts this year but I still get to hang out with my beautiful family and enjoy their company! Later I'll take my daughter to the  park and teach her to ride her bike. Maybe a little afternoon X-mas fishing! Not bad, huh? Merry Christmas everyone!  :)

BTW, Bassboss, if you need help spending that BPS money, give me a shout! ;D

Juicer machine from my mom and dad to both of us,Sandwich maker from my girl's mom to both of us and a set of cheap cologne from my girl's mom.I think it's time to start dropping hints for gift cards from bass pro or cabela's next year.

If it wasn't for the BR exchange this Christmas would have sucked hardcore as far as the fishing department went.

But hey I'm thankful for everything!
