We haven't done Christmas with the inlaws, so I reserve the right to change, but really, the best gift I got was a reusable water bottle:


At home, I normally use one of those insulated straw cups, but they aren't practical for going out, especially on sessions. Things have not been so great with DH and I lately, so for him to really sit down and think about something I would really need and use was great to me.

My mom got Jett and I a HUGE book of pooh bear stories for me to read to the kids. The Kenny loggins song "house on pooh corner" was/is her's and my song since I was a little girl. I use to stand on her feet while we danced around the livingroom singing it. At my wedding we danced to it for our mother daughter dance.

I also got a new large deep skillet to cook with

Honestly, I cared much more about Sean's gifts than my own. But I'd say that my favorite gift for myself was a covered vegetable dish for my wedding china set.

There are two; either one would have blown me away on it's own!
#1 - my inlaws gave us a family trip!!! DH, SIL, BIL, and I get to decide where they will take us and all the kids. They suggested an all inclusive resort or maybe Disneyland as possible ideas, but it's up to us! WOW!
#2- DH replaced the diamond that fell out of my wedding set a few months ago. Totally surprised!

DH got me a giftcard even though I thought we were not getting each other gifts (I had just bought a laptop and he got an expensive running watch) and my aunt gave me $400 for my bday in december and xmas. Haven't spent my money yet Luyando didn't get much although DD1 did. But she does have a $75 amazon giftcard which I haven't gotten around to spending.

My favorite gift was honestly money from the grandparents, so I could buy pants and toys for the baby. I also loved the blu rays my DH got me: Sweeney Todd, Grease, and Into The Woods!

He found it at the base exchange, but while googling it, I found it on amazon :
