On Christmas Eve we celebrated all the December birthdays of those present – my dad, two of my sisters, and Christopher. The highlight of the evening was when we shocked our dad with a flat screen TV! He LOVED it! :)
For the past 7 years he’s been jokingly asking us kids for a TV. This year my sister Abby suggested we all go in together and actually get him one! Since we had time to plan, we found a steal of a deal on Black Friday. Since I was celebrating Thanksgiving in a small town, we decided that I would probably have the best luck in getting it without losing a limb.
I arrived early enough that I was the very first person in line! I brought a book with me and tried my best not to freeze to death in the frozen food aisle, haha! I waited 3 hours on my own while Christopher was busy helping his parents with something else then for the last 2 hours Christopher came to join me. It was perfect timing – he arrived just as I finished the book I had brought with me. :) After 5 hours of waiting, the TV was ours! :)
But now, back to Christmas Eve…
The morning started off with some last minute shopping that my dad and sister had left to do. By the way, I’m the shorter of the two girls in the pic to the left (which is rare for me to say since I’m 5’8). I’m also the one with the ridiculously long ponytail, ha!
Then we went over to my sister’s house (not the one previously pictured – a different sister) where Christopher once again proved how he is the coolest uncle ever. He and our nephew Wesley love building things together. It makes my heart smile to see them bond. :)
