What's a light tower?

Is 80 gallons enough?

What's that clothing? Like under armor?

Gave Maria a Lego BB-8 set, an illustrated copy of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's stone, and a new necklace.
siblings got together for our parents gifts. Sister picked the stuff out so I just put money in for it.

Best I got: SNES classic, a handmade blanket from Maria's mother, handmade wine glass from my father.

note: it's just the stem of the glass that my dad made.

I saw a picture of the wine glasses that Maria posted on Facebook, they look really cool.

We've only done Christmas with Erin's family so far, my family will be next weekend. Best gift I got was probably a 3rd oculus sensor and a Vikings winter hat, both from Erin's parents.

Erin did most of the shopping so she pretty much gets all the credit for presents given. We got her dad a new polo shirt from the oldest brewery in the world when we were in Germany, I thought that was cool. Her mom really liked a pair of socks we got her because on the bottom of one sock it says "if you can read this" and the other says "bring me a glass of wine"

That really cool Danny! You're dad is so skilled. I think I saw the BB8 on FB too, that's a really cool set.

Who got you the SNES? I heard they are easier to find in the wild compared to the NES classic, but they are still really hard to find

Maria got me the SNES. I think NES Classics are harder to find because they aren't made anymore whereas the SNES just came out in September.

Going out to visit my parents was probably our best gift. We didn't do much else for Christmas after that.

Received was the robot vacuum. Although that could also be a given gift since one was a gift for Sarah and the second was a gift for myself.

I bet you didn't even tell them you needed that, they just knew.

Exactly. I didn't even have to explain to them what it was after I opened it or anything...... Not!

Best gift so far has to be the Ember mug. I also got a pull-up, pushup, and dip stand for my home "gym."Image

I've never sought out BCBS, but yeah most places around here have a 1 or 2 bottle limit on those types of releases.
