Not for me, but my brother in law made this for my son. It's painted with that magnetic chalkboard paint, so my son can put magnetic letters on it or use chalk on it. Hidden because it's messes up the forum format.

German families traditionally open gifts on Christmas Eve after dinner, so that's what we're doing since my Grandma is here visiting from Germany. Looking forward to it!

Ugh, I just found out I have a hernia too

I got an early present of a fancy 27" ZR2740W monitor for my computer already, and I know I have a new XBox waiting for me to replace mine that just died a few weeks ago.

Re: The Official "What did you get for X-Mas?" 2011 Edition.

My son (who had drank all my beer while I was working out of town) just brought me a 12 pk of the Sam Adams Christmas/Seasonal Pack. Sam Adams is not my favorite, but they have some nice winter/Christmas beers that are drinkable.

And since earlier today I bought me a 12pk of Shiner Cheers, and a 12pk of the New Belgium seasonal sampler. So I'm rebuilding the stock in my home bar...ha!!

That is all kinds of awesomeness....I'm going look for that paint and do something for my bar. We have a small chalk board that we write stuff on. You know, Happy Birthday Mom, or go Cowboys (no comments). But making something big, and in some shape would be awesome!

More excited to see my son's face when he gets all his new toys.

As for me, probably just a few things from the wife. I usually buy movies and games all year, so we don't really make a big deal out of Christmas.

My grandparents on both sides were German immigrants and it's always been Christmas Eve in our family. Till now I never knew it had anything to do with being German.
