We had a great Christmas.
We did not get an XBOX 360 or an HDTV TV, our big wish-list items.

Next, David received an electric racecar set. No batteries (yeah), just an AC adapter and two controllers. It was a blast. I remember wanting this one I was a kid. Ours has a loop but this picture gives you an idea of the set:
