    I got a PS2 Spiderman game of some sort from the kids, but its really for them. I also got some other assorted stuff. Some of that is wireless keyboard and mouse so I can work while walking around the room (mainly the mouse for that.)

    The kids got $300+ of model electric train stuff, but that is really for me. They also got a TON of assorted stuff.
