Got $50 gift card to Advance Auto, and home made cookies from my sister. Dad got me a Keurig before Thanksgiving when my regular one died. Its a great machine. I'm not a huge coffee drinker, but I like my coffee. This thing makes the best coffee, better than anything else I've ever owned. I also use it for tea and hot cocoa. I am definitely going to try brew over ice when we get to summer.

Got my dad a repair manual for the 06 Forester he just got. (More a gift for me, but still..) Also a cobalt screwdriver kit, and some good gloves.
Got my sister a home radio kit for her satellite radio, home multimedia dock and car dock kits for her Droid X2, as well as a good bluetooth headset for it.
Got one of the older ladies that works with me a scarf that takes those hunting handwarmer packs. Shes had cancer, and is always cold in the store, despite the extra heavy clothes she wears. I saw this when I was looking for gloves for my dad, and thought it would be perfect for her.
Got myself a new scanner, reads real time, records and graphs, plus this one will read ABS codes. Which I needed, since now I figured out that my front driver sensor is shot. Hence no traction control or ABS, on nearly bald A/* tires, in upstate NY, in winter. Driving is not fun. I've been lucky up till now that we hardly had any white fluff. At least that hub/bearing is still under warranty.

But, best of all, got to spend time with family on Saturday before having to work overnight Sunday into Monday.

I got several Christmas ornaments in remembrance of my little sister, a sweet trench coat, a nice little pocket laser/LED flashlight, and $210.

we are all waiting to hear about the truck. Please wear the "Russian hat" when you surprise her with the truck.... Didn't Barney Fife wear a hat like that on cold days on Andy Griffith?

Body and interior is in mint shape. It was shipped up from South Carolina and has never seen a winter. It has about 102,000 miles on it but was meticulously cared for. I'm trying to upload photos right now but having a little trouble... currently reading the sticky on how to.
