Santa came nice and early to our abode and we had a wonderful Christmas morning.
It is tradition in our home that the year a boy turns ten, he gets an “official Red Ryder, carbine action, two-hundred shot range model air rifle!” (name that movie) for Christmas. This year was ds3’s turn.
Ds2 did get excited about this gift, mainly as it was completely unexpected. He and my brother saw Jim Gaffigan earlier this year and ds actually got his autograph (He signed it “Alex pocket.” Those who know Gaffigan will understand lol.) Anywho, the signed poster and ticket stub were just shoved into ds’s desk drawer so I snuck them out and had them custom framed.
It was funny watching these two go at it. They had a hard time deciding what to focus on…the gift they were opening or the one their brother was opening lol. We had a very blessed Christmas morning at home this year. Shortly after all this we headed over to my parent’s home to meet up with extended family. Stay tuned for part two. (Hint; there will be cute twins and a sweet little girl, you won’t want to miss it.) ;)
