Ok, so what did everyone get for Christmas?

I got:
An engagement ring from my Husband! When we got married 6 years ago I never got an engagment ring. I just had a teeny tiny diamond that was a promise ring from two years earlier. I never had a wedding either so....needless to say I can get rather "sour" when discussing the topic. SUPRISE! I have a 3/4 karret diamond with amazing clarity and sparkle! I guess this means I need to start wearing rings again! wink.gif I also got a cd I wanted. This was WAYYYYYYYY over our agreed budget!!!!!!!! tongue.gif
OK, I am NOT complaining!! laugh.gif
I also got a new pair of Dr. Martins (shoes) from my grandparents, money, a shirt, and candies from my parents. Bath stuff, a gift cert. and new pots from my mother in law.
My husband got a new pair of Dr. Martins and gift certs to Dunkin Donuts from me (boy don't I feel like a schmuck!), money, a shirt, and candies from my parents, gift cert, ski stuff, police stuff from his mother/brother.

Of course the dogs and cats got their stockings filled! And all of the horses/ponies had nice crisp apples!

Lets here from YOU! cool.gif

Hi

Ya know yer getting old when.....

ya get a rocking chair and a heating pad from Santa....and...it is just what you wanted. laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif

Actually the greatest gift that I got was not for Christmas but is in my barn. She is the lovely Tahara El Risaana. To me, a treasure and everyday is like Christmas when I go to tend to her or just to spend time. I have Lisa Busch of Eclipse Arabians to thank for this great gift. Thank You Lisa!

Hope everyone had a great Christmas and that Santa was good to you. smile.gif

Personally - some very thoughtful gifts from family and friends including a lovely English leather double bridle smile.gif Farad's and my ride on Christmas morning was wonderful trying it out smile.gif

wishing all well during the festive season biggrin.gif and many thanks for the lovely greeting from Aleksi and Oliver - it was lovely smile.gif

I got a tack room that I have been wanting for 4 years! It will really come in handy! The trip to Paris to watch the Salon De Chaval was also part of my Christmas present - I think I will ask for that again in '05!
Thanks Santa!!!
Happy Holidays!

I received my Christmas present a little early this year...in November. And she is the kindest, most loving present I could have ever received. Her name is "Janey" and she is a 2 year-old Bernese Mountain Dog. smile.gif

I got hot rollers, for those days when I feel like looking like a girl (lol) and some nice Lucky jeans. I also got a new brush set, a longe whip (which really looked funny under the tree), and a copy of the new "A Comprehensive Study of the Horse's Gaits in Motion" which I can't wait to read!!

BTW mckulley, a horse ate the diamond out of my engagement ring when I was helping the vet float his teeth. So BE CAREFUL with your new ring! I still haven't gotten mine replaced!

Such a thought....

Thank you for the advice on the ring! I can't stop looking at it...but I have to put it away! I wore it to work today and that will be that because of my profession (vet tech) I will end up hurting it....

Dear Guest guest,

Who are you to judge? Most of the people posting here devote themselves to many causes that ensures better lives for both people and animals, if not environment -giving not just time but a lot of money too. That they have received gifts may be, in some measure, thank you's for their support. Maybe you don't deserve any and that is why you have such a sour attitude? Ever read, "....he who is without sin-cast the first stone."? Why not simply share the joy?
