What were your scores or your kids?

My kids will be enjoying a new PS5. It's been hard not telling them that we were able to purchase one a few weeks ago.

Well my son has enjoyed setting up a grocery store with all the boxes of the toys he's not playing with. So take that past me!

Kids are the best. Yesterday Evie was saying how bored she is. What?! You got like $800 of new toys from us, family, and santa. Go play!

Some of the highlights
5 year old - big lego set. barbie camper. new bedroom set
1 year old - train table. pop up tunnel with tents.
wife - Wine subscription box. 12 bottles every 6-8 weeks? (I am going to adjust that after the first one is delivered and the price goes up)

Didn't really do presents this year. I think I guilted Maria into by saying I got her a present unintentionally.

I backed a Magic Puzzle on kickstarter back in May or something like that. Didn't receive the puzzle until late October. Figured I'd just wait to give it to her at Christmas.
Also got her a roku because I had an Amazon gift card, turns out she bought one for herself the day it arrived. Guess the living has a roku now.

She got me some books.

I clicked that link, but still confused how a Magic Puzzle isnt just a normal puzzle.

Yeah their homepage doesn't really describe it well as the kickstarter did.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ma ... c%20puzzle

Essentially there is a bunch of Easter eggs, hidden objects, and an optical illusion once the puzzle is completed.

I am way more intrigued now thanks to the KS video. Don't spoil anything, but is the ending as cool as they make it look?

I know that name....

We only have a two-year-old at home so he doesn't really know what to ask for yet. So he got a bunch of random clothes, some books, a lot of dinosaur related things, and a new sled which so far he hates. Gonna try to get him to have fun on the sled more later this week.

The wife and I normally do a trip or tickets to an event rather than gifts, but couldn't really do that this year. Got each other some small stuff but might do something bigger later.

For me, I got a nice new 12" meat slicer knife for BBQing, some various woodworking items, and a "12 Beers of Christmas" pack from a brewery in Chicago.

Vilija's nieces got all kinds of books and games. We kick started college savings for my new niece since she's too small to really need anything. I got Vilija remote start for her car and she got some ski apparel for an upcoming ski trip she has. Otherwise we just got small things. I got a new Google TV dongle for the living room.

Remote starter is such a good gift idea, but does it even get cold that far south?!

It does if you've grown up in SoCal and then lived in New Orleans for 10 years lol. Will also be nice when it's stupid hot this summer.
