Re: What you want or getting for Xmas!!????!!!

what was supposed to be 6 days has turned into 6 weeks and counting of staying at my parents home.

i just want to wake up christmas morning in my new house. i dont care if the furniture isnt delivered or set up yet, i dont care if the direct tv isnt set up yet, i dont care if we have a christmas tree or not.

i will sit on a freakin box, drinking tap water from a plastic cup christmas morning as happy as i can be . . . just as long as it is in my new house and not my parents. i love my parents but no grown man should have to spend 6 weeks at their parents house.

ohh and my lady is probably getting me some PS3 games like red dead and assasin creed. are these games worth getting? im not a huge video game guy but i like playing a few hours a week.

ps - its always cool to read about what you guys do for your kids and wives. it makes my very near entrance into the "married with kids" stage of my life seem not so . .whats the right word.... so scary? idk, every time my lady starts talking marriage and kids (which is alot nowadays) i start giggling like a 10 yr old and get real red in the face.

We wanted to get him a reward for learning the potty...timing works well for Christmas.


By the way, here's the birthday cake I made him...was huge, it was a big pasta pan, not a cake pan. He has a milk allergy so bakery cakes are out. This cake was cooler anyways:





Anyways...back to the topic. :cheeky-sm

You are a good dad Buster!

If you like riding a pretend horse around for hours on end it is a hoot!

BTW- Anyone try the undead version of Red Dead?

Been wanting the pro drums kit for Rock Band 3... Wife never wants to buy me stuff I actually ask for.

She's like, "But then it won't be a surprise!"

Talk to her mom or your mom and tell them to mention to your wife that you "told them" you wanted the drums.

You didn't tell your wife (directly) and maybe she'll fall into the trap.



Thanks mredskins, I try.

Surprise her and get her an electric shaver.

Right now with a puppy and two young kids at home the floors are constantly a wreck, she vacuums/sweeps/mops at least once a day.
And I want to see the dog react to the robot. That's got to be hilarious.

I put in a request for a sound dock for my IPod. This Sony one has wireless speakers, which definitely appeals. Sounded pretty good to me in the store.
Please post reviews of these as I'm thinking of doing the same thing... I was looking at prices, looks like $400+ for the one designed specifically for pets. And this after I spent $500 on a friggin' dyson when we got married.

I always end up getting myself whatever I want throughout the year, so at Xmas time, there's not too much to ask for that's at all realistic. Lowe's gift cards are always a safe bet. I'll probably treat myself to a weekend up at Camelback once we get some decent snow.

I've got a roomba, does a decent job, pretty much like Schneed says it gets you by until you can do a normal vacuum, definitely doesn't replace it though.

Yeah, it's good. I'm kinda burned on RD in general, but it's worth the download.

Buster as much as I disagree with you politically, that's some great stuff you are doing for your kid. You are a good person bud.

Re: What you want or getting for Xmas!!????!!!

My wife and I decided when our 2nd daughter was born that we'd get each other one meaningful gift each year and focus the rest of Christmas on the girls. We tend to get things as we need them, so we don't need much and it's much more fun buying gifts for the kids.
