I got the boots I've been lusting after...forever.

Also lots of chocolate, and make up and weird feathery headbands :D

Despite driving between both sets of parents, it was more tiring than annoying...on a bottle of sloe gin at the moment :D

Haha, my dad is quite the character. Some of the things he does and says I couldn't post here, haha. My dad's side of the family has no sense of shame.

I got so many lovely personal gifts...even my Aunty who usually buys me horrible perfume bought me a (relatively) nice gift!

I got lots of books, but no DVDS or CDs which is unusual...bookstore vouchers, lovely handbag which looks vintage but isn't....an old fashioned key on a silver chain necklace and...a Soda Stream! (yes it's the 80's....)

Red, those portraits are lovely! What a sweet idea, too!

I got a Wii for Christmas, and I've been having fun with it, even though we only have the basic sports package that it came with. That's what I really wanted anyway (I love the bowling), so I'm pretty easily entertained!

We also got a Senseo, one of the pod coffee makers, which I've been enjoying tremendously. Feeling a bit cold, have some coffee! It's fast and easy! :lol:

My mum also sent me a couple of nice necklaces -- one I'd asked for and another that was a surprise -- along with a nice black cashmere sweater and a pretty scarf. Oh, and they sent me money so I can finally get a bike and become a true Dutchie!

It was sort of a humble Christmas, as my none of my family members had much money this year, but that was perfectly alright with me. My sister was kind enough to buy me a shirt with my 2 favorite Kiwis on it! It's a gray Conchords t-shirt from Hot Topic, and it has the season 1 cover art on the front. Needless to say, I was quite pleased with this gift. :D

She also got me an Alice in Wonderland shirt that has Johnny Depp's scary Mad Hatter face on it, looking bigger and scarier than ever! It's a beautiful shirt, and I adore Johnny, but it still scares me...

Red- Wow. Tell him for me how talented I think he is. Those are stunning and will look moreso once you frame them.

DaMango- those shirts sound great!! I love t-shirts with the things we love on them! Is the Mad Hatter face this one?

I've got a bunch of small gifts this year, which is nice because they're all practical. I hate getting gifts that I won't use. I'm super excited because my aunt likes it when I pick what I want with her instead of her having to guess. So she knows about my FOTC obsession and I showed her the new website and the merch section, so she suggested getting one of the tour posters. I happily obliged :D

One of my most vivid memories of Holland was witnessing 3 separate, very serious bike crashes. (Amsterdam, perhaps a bit more congested than where you are?) Be careful out there indy.

I just bought myself a video camera. Look out world!

We have more bike traffic than car traffic here in Utrecht, so yes, I'm a bit worried about biking, even with all the designated lanes! It's not the cars you have to watch out for; it's all the damn tourists as well as the other bikes! Still, I have some easier routes to start out with, and I'm not going much further than my own street until I feel more comfortable on a bike. I haven't been on one for about 20 years! I'm going to be a good case study on whether it's true or not that you never forget how to ride a bike. :lol:
