Despite the demanding deadlines and the overall hectic lead up to this day, it still tops my list of favorite times. Me and Aaron split our day between our two families, which is easy because they live three minutes apart. We've done it this way for a dozen or so years, way back to when we still shopped at Toys R Us for my little bros. Now after we leave my parents and head over to Aar's parents we bring my littlest brother Walt along and he's all grown up in his argyle sweater, leather jacket, and hundred forty dollar limited edition sneakers (yeah I know, he's extravagant!)
This year Christmas day will be double the fun because our little nephew Adam is a big boy of One and a Half, and therefore will be opening big boy gifts and tearing all his own wrapping paper! Me and Aar have 14 people to shop for now, and it's daunting but at the same time we feel very lucky to have that many people to shop for. We were walking around the mall the other day, our feet were tired, we were sweating in our coats, our arms loaded with shopping bags, and we felt Lucky to be there! Selecting the gifts can be difficult but it's a thrill to get someone something that they really like. Especially Walt, he's a clotheshorse!
Anyway, gotta get going. We got a bit of a late start this morning because I was wrapping gifts into the wee hours and needed at least some sleep. I want to wish all of you the Happiest of Holidays! And now that the Holiday rush is officially over I'll have time to get back on here and recap the last month! Thanks so much to all of you for all of the Holiday Wishes you've been sending my way! You've made my year! I cannot thank you enough!!
Big big hugs!!
Aaron sends lots of love as well!
