A belated Merry Christmas to everyone . Hope you all had a wonderful holiday.

Things I got yesterday from my parents:

-Some chocolate & candy canes
-Little mugs with stuffed animals in them, like a penguin, a deer, a bear, and a little stuffed Santa (and they're all so cute!)
-A couple of turtlenecks (which is good, 'cause I said I needed a couple of new ones)
-A really pretty red sweater
-A moon pillow
-A little jewelry box (in which I put my pearl necklace my aunt had sent me for my birthday )
-The "Live Aid" DVD
-U2's "Best Of 1990-2000" DVD
-The "U2 Show" book

Things I got from my sister:

-U2's Slane Castle DVD (saw the part where Eve's dancing around during "Mysterious Ways" yesterday-awwwww ...)
-And possibly one of THE neatest things I've ever gotten-a charcoal drawing picture of U2 that someone had made. When my family had gone to Rapid City a few weeks back to do some Christmas shopping, we'd come across this little table area of a bunch of charcoal drawings of various musicians and actors and whatnot (and they were REALLY good, too). Apparently, when I wasn't at that area, my sister'd found a U2 one, and decided to get that for me for Christmas. . It's of the guys from the Pop era, and it's scary how good the drawing is.

So yesterday 'twas a good day. And my family liked the gifts they all got, too (matter of fact, my dad's watching one of the things he got yesterday right now), so....

It includes one day, of being taken round Dublin in a limo and seeing the, 'U2 Sights' of the city!

Not staying in the Penthouse sadly, but a deluxe double room anyway!

Ive never even been to Ireland, so im really looking forward to it.
....OMG - I may meet Bono.....or Edge

Typical Dad stuff; couple of books to catch up on overdue reading...

Leather jacket to keep me warm in those long U2 concert lines...

BAW got a U2 iPod and related equipment, candles, scents, new Nikes, etc.

Very conservative this year...we really splurged on all 4 kids, including my daughter...it may be the last time since next year, they will all be 18+...no more "free passes" if you know what I mean

In general, our kids received a couple turntables, DJ' headsets, digital camera, new HP computer tower, phone...and gift certs.

It was a very good year!..

...wow.

Your dad is by far one of THE coolest people ever *Nods*. What an awesome Christmas gift! *Is envious, LOL*

Also, hey, I'd keep an eye out anyway if I were you-ya never know, you could meet one of the guys while you're there. Crazier things have happened, after all, right?

When you do take your trip, may you have a wonderful time.
