That’s the sound of Christmas whizzing by. It went as fast as it came.
Mind you, its only the 27th and I still have another week off. Not to mention the parents are coming out this Thursday. So the holiday is still in full swing.
I was muchos spoiled this year. Our family decided to do wish lists for the first time to make gift shopping easier. It would also limit the number of gift returns. Ya, I know, when I put it that way it sounds like we’re sucking the spirit out of Christmas. Well, I can’t argue with the results! It was a very merry x-box Christmas.
I mentioned on my list that I wouldn’t mind a few x-box games. So, I received Madden 2005, FIFA 2005, Spiderman 2, and NHL 2005 which I already have so it needs to be exchanged for something else. I listed the novel The DaVinci Code and received that. Some great clothes… um LOTR Return of the King DVD… a framed photo of me & my dad which was quite touching. Crazy man, crazy.
On Christmas day, we went out to our friends Daryll and Renee to have Christmas dinner with them and their two little boys. It was nice being around kids on Christmas. I can’t believe I just said that. We bought the boys a hot wheels set which taught me a very valuable lesson… I will never, ever buy a gift for kids that require assembly. Ever again. But we had a great time.
Since the weather was so great today, we walked to downtown and hung out. Most relaxing.
So that’s it for now. New Years still to come and few more days to sleep in (and play x-box).
Hope you are all have a very Merry Christmas.
