It is Christmas time again.
This Christmas was a lot of fun.
Our big gift was a drum set for Brian.
He has been ra-ta-tatting on everything and we figured it was time to put that tapping to use.
It was hard keeping such a big thing a secret.
We had to enlist a few people to help us hide it until last night.
Then I thought we would ruin the surprise making all the noise we did when putting it together.
I found the set on craigslist and Todd had to drive over to Seattle to get it.
Now we have to figure out where to put it.
Bryce wanted one thing.
The Spyro Adventure Set.
You get the game Spyro and a disc that allows you to play different characters when you place them on the disc.
He has been playing it non-stop since he opened his present.
Bonnie got a few girly things like a crimping curling iron, a make-up brush set, and jewelry.
However, she was most excited about getting her own DS.
She had an old DS that we picked up at a garage sale a few years ago, but it finally died.
I was able to get her an updated one and now she can play all of her games that have been gathering dust.
Todd and I did well as well. Bonnie and Todd bought me a new knife set and Todd got me a digital picture frame that I can have on my desk at church. Todd got some new clothes, a head lamp for all of his night hikes and an ipod shuffle to put his audio books on so that he can listen to them while he hikes.
Yes, it was a good Christmas.
Now time to head off to Grandma's house for the family Christmas gathering.
Merry Christmas Everyone.
