3. A NEO Alphasmart (Woo-hoo! I won't be stuck in the house any longer)

4. A $100 Shop Rite gift card (Woo-hoo!) I think my m-i-l wants to make sure I'm feeding the family. LOL!

5. A Rules of Writing Book (this was a surprise, but it's interesting)

6. A "Careful, or you'll end up in my novel" T-shirt. (Tee-hee. Also a surprise, but I've worn it twice already and received much laughter by strangers)

9. A $75 visa gift card (Woo-hoo!)

10. A quilted handbag

Morgan St. John said...

I'm jealous of your alphasmart!!! Great load. I love the handbag as well.

The best christmas gift I recieved was the winter coat my DH bought me. it's chocolate-brown wool and goes to my knees. YAY! No more spring corduroy pretending-to-be-a-winter-coat, with-only-one-button-left jacket!!! LOL

Chicki said...

Numbers 3 and 6 would be my favorites! How are you doing with your AlphaSmart? Did you get the PCY cable so you don't have keep plugging and unplugging it to your computer?

Savannah Chase said...

Those are some great gifts...woohooo for you...

Jennifer McKenzie said...

Oooo you got some cool stuff. I, too, got a laptop. Yayyyyyy.

Virginia Lady said...

Nice collection! I got a trip to Phoenix, a new washer and dryer, a Sugarland CD, Charlaine Harris's latest book, and an itouch. :-) Not bad, not thirteen items, but definitely a good haul.

Stephanie said...

Wow, sounds like you wracked up! I got a stand mixer (woohoo!), a waffle maker, and a photo printer. I love them all!

Tempest Knight said...

LOL @ #6!!! Great presents all in all. Seems like you were a good girl this year. ;)

Alice Audrey said...

Nice haul. Mostly I just got fat on rum balls. Oh well.

Anonymous said...

Wow you got a nice pile of loot! How's the alpha smart?

Lia said...

You got some good stuff. I got a FlyFusion Pentop Computer, a Coach purse, and money.

Kelly McCrady said...

I got the same shirt, from my BFF. Must wear that to Nationals. So what if I won't be unique? LOL

I got a $50 gift card to Coldwater Creek--the catalogue I drool over and cannot afford. Had to work hard to squeeze more than one item from that gift card. Lucky they were having a sale online.

Glad your Christmas was merry--lotsa good loot!

Heather said...

So jealous you got an Alphie - love the t-shirt, too!

I got a couple of DVDs, a new CD, a Sizzix Sidekick (mini die cutting machine)...few other things, but no books or anything else writing related.

Shelley Munro said...

Wow, you were spoiled. You'll love your Alphie. I have an older one and use it all the time. In fact, I'm off to the coffeeshop in about half an hour to do some writing.

Paige Tyler said...

Great gifts!

Darla said...

You must have been on Santa's "very nice" list!

Happy 2008!

Harris Channing said...

I love the t-shirt...I want one! And the handbag is adorable.

Have a great new year!


Debbie Mumford said...

Oh! Congratulations! I LOVE my Neo Alphasmart...

Debora said...

Wow - girl - you made out like a bandit! Totally jealous of the Alphie, but not sure how I feel about the Red Sox hats...(but since I'm a NY Met fan and NOT a yankee fan...I guess I'll forgive ya!)

merc said...

Great stuff, Jenn. I got a measley 2008 E300 Benz. (charcoal gray. bleh. what was my dh thinking?) Now I have to try to sell the old one. Life's tough--but i'm happy with it!
Just got back from a looong 2-week caribbean cruise followed by a nice weekend of shopping in new york, so I'm catching up on blogs.
Happy new year and lots of luck. Don't let devils trip you up--remember my old advice: they'll keep trying to discourage you, but that always means something spectacular is about to happen, so keep praying.
