The Post About Pinball and Amazon Moolah

In my current Rabbit Giveaway, I posed the question:

What is one of the best gifts you've ever been given during the holidays?

My answer would be a full-size pinball machine my parents bought for my brother and me when we were kids. There are awesome pictures somewhere, but I don't have them.

So I'll recreate it for you:

This was a beloved toy in our house. It taught us about competition and sharing. It also taught us how to cheat without tilting the machine. All necessary lessons in the game of life.

Your answers to the question were so fun to read! There were gifts in the forms of babies and engagement rings and computers and KitchenAid mixers. Most of which I wouldn't mind getting.

Plus, several of you got GPS gadgets you can actually operate. I'll be in touch.

Here are a few others I particularly liked:

Holly Noelle @ Domestic Dork: "One of the best gifts was technically for my baby daughter...but I love it too. It's a copy of The Night Before Christmas that plays a recording of her grandparents {who live almost 3,000 miles away} reading the story aloud."

"a hula hoop. I sung the Alvin & chipmunk song alllllll christmas season because i wanted one so bad...and santa did NOT disappoint!"

Ms. Gordon: "My best friend made me a book called "Everyone should have a Jennifer Gordon"....filled with all the reasons why she loved me and why I made a good friend, complete with pictures and drawings and silliness. Anytime I need a boost, I just read that and smile. :)"

FOKXXY: "...a fake cabbage patch doll..." (Me: I got the fake one too - she was so big, she looked liked she'd eaten 3 other CP dolls.)

Ann On and On: "No violins please, I do not want to sound totally sappy, but I was very sick one year and my entire family pulled together and after one year I was in remission. That Christmas I was able to give my parents a daughter who was cancer free. To this day my mom talks about it...usually cries too. A good cry not a bad cry."

Most importantly...the winner of the $25 Amazon Gift Card is...

#153 - JanetFaye - "One of the best gifts was a surprise holiday visit from my sister."
