LOL - that may make me dislike the dress again if I took pictures of ME in it and had to post them somewhere.

I may snap a picture of the dress though - later on when I pull the camera out again for Christmas pics.

DH gave me a gift certificate to Gene Juarez (sp) --- which I couldn't exchange for the Big $$ he spent. It wasnt a "hint" -- someone just told it was something "all women love" & he wasnt aware local saloon didn't offer massages. Broke my heart that he didn't know me better, that I'd pay that much NOT to go there.

we've over this problem---I gave it friend to help with her $200 cut/foils

My family used to get together with my mom's family for Christmas and exchange gifts. With my mothers three brother, two sisters, their spouses and cousins, there were probably around forty people there (good thing it was a big house).

Other cousins got things like trucks, games, books or other toys. One year one of my aunts gave me a package of little bottles of the worst smelling cheap after shave lotion. The kind that you would find in the bargain bin at a drug store. and when a bottle was opened, you could smell it two counties away.

The thing is, I was six years old at time.

On the other hand, I can remember her one year standing outside on the dock with a bottle in her hand singing loudly off key.

The next year though she asked us what we would like to bring so SIL said she'd make pies, to which my MIL responded that they weren't doing pies this year, no one ate them and they were stuck with a ton of pie...which btw isn't true, but ok, Jean said whatever and opted for something else.

On the BIG day, after dinner, MIL asked who wanted pie...Jean's face turned bright red...me being me...asked...what kind???? MIL said Pumpkin of course....OMG...Jean blew, I mean blew, followed MIL into the kitchen where they proceeded to have words. MIL denied telling her we weren't doing pie, called Jean crazy etc etc etc....Dave, one of hubbies brothers went off on Dick another brother and well FIL sat at the end of the table and laughed...was not good! Our boys were still in their early teens...they didn't know what to think..sigh...needless to say that was the last Thanksgiving we ever all got together and while I have gone to one or two at Dick's, we usually do it now with some good friends...
That is a great story! I can see how the sister in law would be upset, and maybe there was some sort of misunderstanding but it sounds more likely that MIL had another motive! Gotta love family! I'm curious as to how tonight went for you...

More importantly, tomorrows your big day!!! I'm so looking forward to hearing updates and seeing pictures! I'll be thinking of you! Good luck and keep us updated!!!

My wife likes to tell people I gave her a vacuum cleaner one Christmas. LOL Never happened. We needed one for the upstairs so we wouldn't have to lug the Rainbow up there all the time. I saw the vacuum on sale a few days before Christmas and bought it, then jokingly put a bow on it when I brought it in the house.

Lesson learned: Never joke with your wife about buying her a vacuum for Christmas! LOL

I have always been a bit of a tomboy and as a kid, I loved animals or toys that allowed me to explore. Dolls weren't my thing at the best of times, but when I was a little girl, a cousin of my grandfather and her husband gave me a doll every Christmas for years. My older brother got really cool toys from them: a microscope to look at dead bugs, electric trains or electricity sets that lit up lights and made motors spin, and a very awesome chemistry set that could be employed to make really awful "stink bombs" to disgust and horrify the entire extended family. What fun! But I, alas, got a stupid porridge-faced doll in a pink, frilly dress every single year. I hated them with a passion. It was only years later that I learned to appreciate their thought and generosity, even if their expression of it was wrong for me. They meant well.

Giant metal plated cross with glass gems from my grandfather (Dad's side). My aunt an Ex-nun said not even the Mother Superior had one that big! FYI I am not religious at all.

My cousins got my sister and I both hairdryers when I was twelve. I've always had short hair and never liked blow drying.

I was a tomboy as a child, still am. One year when I was about 12 my Nana (my dad's mom) gave me a Barbie doll, when she had been told, she asked specifically, that I wanted a skateboard. She felt it wasn't appropriate for a "young" lady. So I took the firecrackers my other grandparents gave one of my older sisters, and calmly removed Barbie's head, inserted a firecracker into Barbie, took Barbie outside and lit it. Nana was not happy, parents were not happy, older sister was not happy, but I never got another Barbie from Nana again. The next year she sent cash. I can't believe I was such a brat.
