Visit from Santa
Today was Christmas Day and Geno awoke to find a lot of things to be excited and thankful for.
First, he received a Black and Decker Tool Bench, which Mom had to put together because Santa was just too busy. Anyone who knows me, knows that I am manual illiterate, so when I put this together I was pretty proud of myself. Not to mention how great it is to be Santa's little helper.
Although he was excited about the tool bench, nothing compared to the little stuffed animal Winnie the Pooh. There is not much else Geno loves more than Winnie the Pooh. Maybe chocolate and from the picture, you can see he is coveting both. He also received candy, a color book, a crocodile, and a remote control doggy.
Coretta awoke to may surprises as well. She received a color book, socks, mittens, perfume, candy, gingerbread, and a clown. But none of this compared to the reaction on her face when she saw the Wii. She has wanted a Wii for a very long time, and knew her Mommy and Daddy were not going to get it for her. Thank God for Santa. It came with the latest Sims Kingdom Game and the Wii Sports Bundle which has golf, bowling, skiing, baseball, and many more.
Since Nick and I felt somewhat under the weather, we stayed in today. Coretta enjoying time to play with the new Wii and to do some arts and crafts. Geno enjoyed banging the nails into his tool box, reading his books, and sitting next to his sister.
Later on, we had the great opportunity to skype with Grandma Marilyn, Auntie Sarah, and Imania as well as Auntie Erin, Ryan, and Grandma and Grandpa Earnest. The night would not be complete, especially on Christmas Day, without a Christmas movie, so Nick downloaded A Christmas Story and we watched it cuddled up on the couch with swiss hot chocolate. Another great memory!
