Well, except for my family itself.  :)  But as far as material things go, I got a cool toy.  It is called the Parrot AR drone.  It is a remote-controlled quadcopter, and you control it with an app on an ipod or iphone (or droid I think).

It is pretty darned awesome!  It flies on a lithium polymer battery, and does a fair bit of work in leveling itself and hovering for you.  It has a forward facing camera and a down facing camera.  Sound to determine its altitude... uses the downward camera to control its own drift when it is supposed to be hovering.   So all in all it's pretty forgiving to fly.

I'm getting moderately adept at controlling it and I sent for a second battery with greater capacity... so way cool!  :D
There are tons of videos out on the thing if you google for it.

Wife and eldest daughter win big points from dad this year.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
