Any particular reason why you listed them in alphabetical order?

Oh, and my family hasn't opened our gifts yet. I dunno what I can list yet.

It's just the way I like to list things...I guess I am more obsessive-compulsive than I realize. ;)

one notable gift I got...

A game-used puck autographed by Frank Kaberle. My parents got it for me at a fund-raising auction, not having any idea who Kaberle is. I assured them that he's pretty cool.
Not bad.

Okay, I guess I owe you my Christmas gifts list. In no particular order.

1.) Sid Crosby picture puck from my sister

2.) A knight on horseback figurine from my brother.

3.) A 5.0 megapixel camera from my dad.

4.) Some t-shirts celebrating Penn State's 2005 Big Ten Championship and Orange Bowl bid.

Oh... and you may want to check out my website soon. I put up a picture inspired by your own. ;)

Thanks for alerting me to your picture, have a response submitted for your approval by the Midnight Society.* ;D

And even though I mentioned that I do like the Pittsburgh Penguins, I now realize that I probably didn't have to do that, since my Christmas gifts this year kind of made that obvious. :D

Way to go on the Kaberle puck David! :)

* - Forgive me, but every time I say "submitted for your approval", I can't help but think of how that was always said on Nickelodeon's Are You Afraid of the Dark. God, I miss that show.
