BEST: the awesome scrapbook my sister made for us that had all of our prep and day of stuff in it.

WORST: the crucifix MIL’s friend gave us under the advisment of MIL. (we are not religious, MIL knows this and goes out of her way to pull crap like this. To top it off she has been continually asking us where we have hung it…..um no where)

Best — Money

Worst — There are two gifts that tie for worst!

#1 — 4 juice glasses and and a matching pitcher wrapped in bubble wrap in an old cardboard pasta box. The pitcher had chips and cracks in the spout area. The gift did not come with a gift receipt. I think the glasses were probably a used and then put away in the couples attic and then they decided to give them as a gift.

#2 A framed picture from like 1965 or 1970 of Arnold Palmer and some other guy on the green, with a crowd of people behind them, leaning  on their gold clubs with cigarettes hanging out of their mouths. What am I going to do with this? Hang it in my house where my future children will see it and think we are promoting smoking?

I wonder what these guests were thinking when they gave us these gifts?

Best gift: Really hard to pick, I got most of the stuff on my registry, but I am most in love with my formal china.

Worst: Tie.

MIL pulled what she does for all gifts: a grab bag of random stuff. It had pot holders, four kinds of men’s cologne, terribly old fashioned scented soaps, a Greek cookbook (FI is Greek, but hates Greek food), and a couple other weird things.

One of FI’s Greek aunts gave us a pair of gilded, horribly ugly salad tongs. They are supposed to look like leaves. Our tastes run towards clean lines and modern decor. Terrible. Haven’t been able to return them.
