well my wife wanted this crazy sewing machine but to throw her off the trail(for now)i got her a new kitchenaid artisan mixer in the silver color.she does some great bakeing and for years has been saying she wanted one.so i put my own wants of a new bow behind me and hooked her up.

FYI,these mixers are down right spendy.

and i had to bing SIGNIFICANT to get the spelling.no one will take my lack of grammer and spelling crown from me.lol

Well GD, We got us! a Honda Odyssey. That was all we wanted for now. Things got a little tight this year. So we are taking it easy for now

Mine has asked for a wireless printer, to go with the Macbook Air I gave her for her birthday, so that's what I've got. It'll scan and photocopy too.

And who said romance was dead.

Oh, I also got her some scented candles.

The wife's been hinting to a flat screen tv. I bought her a flat screen tv with a built in DVD player. I had to order a tilting wall mount for it too. So it can be adjusted to her liking. I wanted to place it on the ceiling right above the bed but I got a NO GO :mad: from the wife. So I have to settle on placing it on the wall for the bedroom. I bought her a bracelet, clothing, boots, shoes and some other little stuff.

I was dead serious too. ;) She could even hold my beer for me while we lay there watching Tv. It would be the ultimate bed slug...no movement at all besides eye's blinking. :rolleyes:

LOL. I've milked the bad back thing years ago. The wife doesn't fall for any of it anymore. Plus I'm just about a month cold turkey not taking my normal 5 medications for back pain. I never did like taking meds. Now I can think straight without being in a cloud.

A new 85mm lens for her camera, an eye piece for said camera, a bottle of Eternity and a pedicure.

I didn't spend too much on the wife this year. Just an exercise bike to compliment the treadmill she doesn't use. At 5'7" and about 210# I fear for her getting diabetis. Hope this bike gets more work than the treadmill. I figure I'll use it for cardio and flexibility purposes.

Last few years we've concentrated more on our kids and grandkids. She buys clothes and toys and I write checks. I figure to give the kids some help now while they're struggling rather than wait till I die and inherit money they don't really need when they're 50 years old. Besides, I play the stock market and this year started picking my own stocks. Doing fairly well lately so can help them more.

GD, on the plus side, those mixers have attachments that can grind meat and help make sausage. Just trying to help you find a bright side. Enjoy.

My wife got the same mixer last year for that very reason. Coincidentally, it's the one she wanted for baking....

Sue and I don't get each other gifts, stopped doing that many years ago.
We just get stuff all year long. This is the first year we didn't get a tree, with my son gone out of state now it doesn't feel like Christmas.

I'm a Nevada transplant from Washington state, been here for 14 years now. It has only been a white (skiff) christmas twice. Very hard to find the spirit without the white stuff.

Besides the normal shoes, sweaters, movies, girley stuff, I got my wife a Ruger air rifle.
I bet all those angry birds that love to decorate her Mustang are going to get a big suprise in the morning. :)

A little late but my wife got a Sony Alpha-55 DSLR camera package for Christmas. My little others got more stuff than I can shake a stick at but they are having fun with their gifts as well.
