2009 Christmas List


What's up with Christmas this year?

Stockings - Once again:

This year, each adult selects one thing for every other adult's stocking - but with a price limit of $5 or thereabouts per item.

(As usual, parents are responsible for their children's stockings.)

FYI: 2007 list

Somehow, in switching computers, I've lost the 2008 list.  Sorry!

  • Dinner music. We have a nice stereo in our kitchen and like to listen to music of different themes while preparing / eating dinner. So themed CDs, like Mediterranean, Mexican, or Italian music would be appreciated (for when we cook Mediterranean, Mexican, or Italian food). Also, light jazz or cocktail hour music works well. You can often find these types of CDs at places like Pottery Barn or even Target - and I am sure you can find them cheaper online - but they are usually an impulse buy for me.
