I got Christmas tree ornaments with all the furbutts names, Precious moments figures- I collect them, some movies, PJs, new filet knives- So I don't chop my fingers off thin slicing chicken for the dogs . Blanket with Golden and Yorkie on it . Old English Toffees, Various Salsas, Dip/Herb Mixes- Yummy New shoes for work for my aching feet.

Best present was Hyacinth Scented candles the are almost impossible to find . They smell just Heavenly. The guy makes then only 45 min. from my house. He started to make them because no one else did and people always asked him about them. Home Page

This year was a wonderful year presents wise! My MIL purchased a flock of geese in my name that their eggs will be used to feed people in third world countries and their offspring will be used to feed even more people, my SIL and her husband donated to the ASPCA in my name, my BIL donated to the golden retriever foundation in my name, my other BIL donated a coat and some clothes for a child, and my parents donated 10 toys to a local toys for tots toy drive. I also got some wine, a Pandora charm and some other little things including golden retriever earrings! so cute.

This was the best Christmas yet. It felt so good that my family was able to give to people/animals whom are less fortunate in my honor.. Such a wonderful feeling! My nieces are also at the perfect age. We spent a little more money on them than we originally wanted to - but it was so worth it seeing them open their gifts. And to top it all off - my niece who will be 2 in Feb - her favorite gift was the blanket that I made for her. She was so excited about it!

Cookies, baked goods, more cookies, chocolate, more chocolate, lots of candies.

A pair of sheepskin cabin slippers, a LL Bean House coat, two snugglies (one was a from our neighbour and the other was a joke gift from my SO) and two video games Rage and Arkham City.

Dex got a tug toy that he has already destroyed, a pork femur, some pig ears, and a bag of treats.

A new ice fishing rod and reel, gift card, a warm scarf, earrings and other fun little things. Later this week, my gift to myself will be a new macro lens for my DSLR. Actually, the best thing I got this Christmas was to be able to spend time with my family...always is the best gift I ever get!

Yesterday I donated 200 pounds of dog and cat kibble and 6 cases of wet dog and cat food to a local animal shelter paid for my gift cards people gave me . It felt so good- They said to use them on something that made me happy so I did

That's awesome, these are the best kind of gifts IMO when they help someone else or an animal in need.

Kudos to your family for being so thoughtful and caring!
