It’s December 23, and my family and I just celebrated our Christmas with an exciting gift exchange. For those of you who don’t know, I’m still in my 20s and live at home with my parents and two younger brothers (both of which are in college and also live at home.)
So, as tradition would have it, we gathered ’round our living room and began the fun time of exchanging gifts. Unlike our normal tradition, we exchanged these gifts on the night before the Night Before Christmas. We usually do our gift exchange on Christmas Eve night after attending Christmas at my mother’s parents. But, my younger brother finally got his way (only because I did not opppose), and we opened gifts tonight.
My parents were showered with gifts. Some of the highlights – Mom finally got that jacket from The North Face she’d been eyeing for over a year. Dad got an iPod speaker system. One brother got a Fossil leather-banded watch and a turn table that allows him to rip his LPs directly to his iPod (he’s a huge music buff). The other brother got the latest iPod Touch and some high-tech earphones.
I thought I’d share my Christmas haul here. I’m so grateful and blessed! Thanks again Momma, Daddy and the boys.
