The kids have had a blast today. When I came home they were still in their pjs playing with their new loot. Nigel woke up early and could hardly wait for big sister to get up. He is loving the fact that she is on Christmas break. I love the fact that they a such good buddies. As I type they have just loaded all of their super heroes into Nora's new suitcase and are off for an adventure. Earlier today they packed up her suitcase and his new Batman back pack and went on a vacation to the front room.
Yesterday was yet another sign that I just may be growing up. I received twice the joy and satisfaction in seeing the kids open their presents as I did in getting my presents. (Warning, all those inclined to buy me a gift in the future; Do Not take the previous statement as a get out of jail card free. I still like presents....alot.)
Perhaps one of the best moments was watching my nephew Pete open his gift from me. A little background first. I love football, Pete really likes football and equates football with me. So, I got him a pee wee size official NFL football. When he opened it he did not exclaim, "football!", but instead said "Unc Kiss!" (Uncle Chris"). How cool is that?
