I got my wife some of these.  I'll bet she'll be so excited!

You laugh, but we once bought a pair of golf-ball finding glasses to our family gift exchange.  It was the most stolen/passed around item that entire night.  EVERYONE WANTED THEM.

I do the bulk of my Christmas shopping in the "as seen on TV" aisle in Rite-Aid.

I'd like to give a shoutout to Target for having order pickup, so I can just walk in, grab the order, and leave. This is much better than the aimless wandering going, "WTF am I supposed to buy my dad?"

My mom bought a snow cone/shaved ice machine for the family.  My diet for the first half of Christmas was wine-slushies.  I should not have done such a thing.

I ended up getting an engine oil cooler, two books on racecar aerodynamics, some welders pencils (they mark/show up on metal and don't clog up like sharpies do), and a couple t-shirts.  Pretty good!

The baking thread had better get itself ready for bread baked with flour I will grind myself with my new Mockmill 100!

My fiance very much thinks I'm turning our apartment into a small scale bakery. I told him things could be worse. He agreed.

I AM SO JEALOUS.  I was a bad baker this season.  I did...pretty much nothing.  Except for double chocolate peppermint cookies and the usual anise oil cookies.  I WANT TO SEE YOUR PICTURES!!!  ❤️

We normally literally go to the mountains and tear one down with our bare hands but do to kid scheduling issues we got one from Costco .

 

It was a gorgeous tree for two weeks and then died and turned brown early - will just go get one from the national forest from now on...

I got that $20 drone from Costco.

I've already crashed it in the house twice now.

Today starts the real gift - Mrs. Supe and Junior went to her mother's in VA, so empty house other than me and the dogs until Sunday!

Got a new All Blacks jersey. Kids got me a couple pairs of board shorts, and everyone in the family got new bodyboards to rampage at the beach with. Wife also surprised me with a Game of Thrones themed game of RISK! Best part is that the kids really enjoy playing it, and after only a few rounds have become very good at it...

We hit up a few of the after-Xmas sales and started revamping my wardrobe. I guess if I am to be taken seriously as a Project Manager, I should have a wardrobe of more than just polo shirts and "good" jeans.  The hard part is finding pants that actually fit. Everything here seems to be that skinny-fit that are just uncomfortable as hell to be sitting at a desk in.

have your kids managed the "skim" board yet?  I was a pro at that when I was 13, I tried it a few years ago at my parents beach in Tampa and almost ended up in the ICU....

We've seen them around but haven't tried them. The kids may have done it at school. Their school hosts a couple week-long beach events each year which has them learning a host of water activities like paddleboarding, surfing, kayaking and sailing.
