Christmas Haul

As much as I love giving gifts at Christmas, I would be lying if I said I didn't like to receive as well.
Although I haven't always been this way, I would consider myself a compulsive saver.  I have a firm grasp on the concept of wants vs. needs, and do not rush out to buy every little (or big) thing that I want throughout the year.  I, for the most part, get more pleasure out of saving, than I would get out of any "thing".  Money in the bank to me is a secure, comfortable and happy future.
Enter Christmas.  One day of the year when I don't have to choose between immediate and delayed gratification.  When others buy me those things that I want.
Now don't get me wrong.  The true meaning of Christmas is far more important to me.  I wouldn't trade one minute with family for any one of those awesome gifts that I have received.  But I won't be sending any of them back!
So without further ado, here is my Christmas Haul of 2011.

As a disclaimer, this post is only a depiction of the gifts that I opened up Christmas morning.  I received several other gifts from family and friends leading into the holiday season.  I also received several awesome stocking stuffers, which I wish I would have taken a picture of, however, it is too late now because a large portion of it has already been consumed.

What did you get for Christmas?
