Playing Copy Cat ~ What I Gave Christmas 2011

I was catching up on one of my daily reads and loved my fellow blogging friend, Megan of Fried Green Pickles' post today!    We talk and talk and talk about what WE want for Christmas but isn't really about the spirit of giving?  I absolutely LOVE gift giving and trying to find that perfect gift for someone or even just a little something that reminds us of them to put a smile on their face.

Widespread Panic DVDs of the 25th Anniversary Show in Athens that he and his brother went to last February, a new Widespread Panic tee shirt (can you tell he likes WSP?), AND an awesome new turkey fryer/oyster cooker (on a side note, NEVER order from Pelican Sky if you are ordering Bayou Classic products.  I never received a shipping confirmation and when I called to check on the shipping the voicemail was "full" and now, three weeks later, my credit card still has not been charged.  I called the customer service again and the number is now DISCONNECTED.  I was lucky that the manufacturer had at least received the order and was able to give me a tracking number.  Now I am trying to decide what to do regarding the missing charge.)

So excited about this gift...when we went cave tubing and zip lining in Belize my mom commented on how it would be nice to have a nicer underwater camera vs the plastic cheapo one.  We saw someone else on the tour with one.  Mr. R (again!) remembered this comment and it was a HUGE hit on Christmas morning.  When I first ordered it, the package got lost in mailing and Amazon was so great they OVERNIGHTED a brand new one, no questions asked!
