A large stockpot, like this one (Mom would know where to find this stuff without shopping online): http://www.amazon.com/Calphalon-Commercial-Anodized-12-Quart-Stockpot/dp/B00004SY7G/sr=1-2/qid=1165701199/ref=sr_1_2/102-2825748-3560114?ie=UTF8&s=kitchen
Those links were just for an idea; I don't care what brand or color they are as long as they're sturdy and well-made.
Rob: Rob was all cute and wrote a letter to his Secret Santa -- I'll just post it in its entirety...
Dear Secret Santa,
Here are some suggestions for me:
--Clothes. I'm guessing this is even more obvious to you than it is to me. My shirt size is either XL or 2X, preferably tall size if available. Pants are a bit tricky; I know I'm a 34 inseam, I'm pretty sure my waist is down to a 38-40 but I'm still losing weight. Consultmy fashion guru/love of my life Shannon if you need suggestions.
--A new watch. My current one is 8 years old and banged up almost to the point that I can't read the display. I don't have much of a preference as to style, just make sure the band is either cloth or leather with a buckle; the stretchy metal bands catch my armhairs.
--DVDs. Any seasons of South Park would be awesome. Also Talladega Nights, Little Miss Sunshine (if it's out), Clerks 2, Leonard Cohen: I'm Your Man, Ghost World (an old fave of mine that I don't have on DVD yet), Shaun of the Dead
--An iTunes gift card.
Thanks, looking forward to celebrating Christmas with everybody, and happy shopping!
Okay, I had a hard time thinking of something fun that I wouldn't buy myself, but I want an I-Pod Shuffle to use for running and stuff. It's only $79 at the Apple store or online:
Otherwise, I desperately need some new clothes and ski stuff, so I wouldn't mind a gift certificate to REI or LL Bean.
Nate had an issue with getting his wish list to me in a timely fashion and I still haven't received an email he sent me this morning, so as soon as I receive it, I'll post his separately. I know it's snowboarding gloves and new lenses for his snowboarding goggles, but I don't know the exact details. :)
If anyone needs ideas for Daniel and Aspen, here are some:
Aspen could use clothes in the 3-6 month size. Also toys appropriate for an infant (these would be marked 0-6 months).
Daniel is still into superheroes, Mega Blocks Pyrates, and dinosaurs. He has expressed interest in a microscope as well, and he collects rocks and would also enjoy a stone polisher -- National Geographic Toys makes one that I've seen at Target.
