Well the wife and I do not exchange gifts we try to buy something we can both use. So I remodeled the basement last year we decided to get a tv for the basement. Went out bought a $700 tv nice unit but I have a hard time I don't watch that much tv. Owe well so fast foward week before x-mass I'm bringing a load of wood up the wifes throughing rugs and towels out on the porch. I'm thinking this can't be good the washing machine sprung a leak. O well new pump not a big deal no such luck got it to the shop the tub broke and oil coming out of gear box. Sobek luck struck again 2 grand later new washer and dryer. It never fails I get a dollar ahead of the game and something big takes a $hit. Then I was reminded about my new to me 2305 in May then I tried the my tractors way cooler then the new washer and dryer. That went over like a cold turd in a punch bowl she had to remind me of the price difference. All in all I got my year supply of socks and skivees. But watching the grandkids smile and rip open presents was PRICELESS!
Christmas eve I saw the neighbor getting ready to clean up a tree that came down last week, so I jumped in my 317 and helped him clean up the mess. Only took us about a half hour to clean up all the limbs, in appreciation he gave me as much wood as I could fit in my bucket. I always enjoy helping my neighbor's out, just getting to help out was a gift in itself.
I got quite a few Christmas presents, my favorite is defiantly the new seat covers for my Jeep.

Since middle of July when I got the 1026r,fel,bh ,mmm,etc, wife bought her a 550S4 Gator. Then I sold old cab bought new one, bought windshield for Gator, then full cab for Gator. So we said we already had our presents. Wrong,,, at Thanksgiving SIL seen new laptop that he wanted, wife told him to order 2 one for him and one for me. Ok wife had wanted a good meat grinder so I ordered it for her, plus perfume, and a few other things.
Daughters bought me Sirius radio for the tractor ,plus a few shirts gift cards for different places.
But like the others said best thing was seeing the look of the faces of the grandkids.
Have fun and be safe !!!
