I loved the shogon warriors! I hope you and J had a very "happy" Christmas. (merry over here) If you want to see the same reaction i had to the Shogun, you can check out www.photos.yahoo.com/hsbuyer and see my sons reaction to his train set. Have a terrific New years.

Medieval Women Calendars don't count as childhood gifts, although I was certainly child-ish when I received them (and I still wear my child-ishness proudly)

And Art, I am completely jealous of the Rock 'em Sock 'em Robots, not to even mention the utterly cool WWII Bomber pajamas.

I want some WWII Bomber pajamas!
