Yes, we're a little insane. By my estimate, we had a total of about 300 presents under that tree. It took us six hours to open everything. Here we all are preparing to start opening: Here is my leftist/commie brother Mike playing with the talking Ronald Reagan doll Brenda & I gave him: Not quite as perfect as the talking Ann Coulter doll he got last year, but that's tough to top.
Here's my other brother David and his wife Diane opening stuff: Here's David's daughter Julia. She tried, seriously, to watch the entire 24-hour A Christmas Story marathon last year, so we had to get her this shirt: This is David's son Byron watching my mom open something: Here's my dad proudly displaying a cookbook we got him: And this is Byron again wearing the Coolest Christmas Present Ever: Yes, I did buy myself a Voice-Changing Darth Vader Helmet at the same time I got the one for my nephew. What of it?
As for my own haul, I got one of these. It's probably going to take me a while to fill that 20 GB drive, although I may just be able to do it without buying any more music than I already own.
Between Brenda & I, we also got: All three of Neal Stephenson's Baroque Cycle books (now I need to finish Cryptonomicon...) A vacuum food-sealer A deli slicer The From the Earth to the Moon DVD box set The HanzotheRazor DVD box set An obscure nunsploitation movie. A whole bunch of rabbit-related books and calendars And, let's be honest, a whole lot of other stuff
