My mom already wrote about her Christmas here and my dad wrote about it here.
On Christmas Eve I went to Dad’s work and helped out in the kitchen. Ryan and I made pizza and I helped Job with setting up lunch. Dad also let me have a large double-double coffee from Tim Horton’s.
Later on that day Taylah and I went sledding at the park after her mom and her came over. Once supper was done we opened our presents. In my stocking I got a copy of Thrasher Magazine which dad used to read when he was my age. I also go a iPod lock, a lot of candy candy and body wash.
I can’t believe it but Dad and Mom gave me my own cell phone. It’s a Samsung m330 from Virgin Mobile and it’s a slider phone. Dad sent me some of the names of friends from his address book so I could send some text messages. Not only can I send out text messages but Dad showed me that it has a camera in it and I can send out picture messages. How cool is that? I’m not allowed to bring it to school but I can keep it on me when I am at the baby sitter or out with Mom and Dad. I was really surprised.
Dad set it up so I would have unlimited texting for a month and then he said that he would see how I did with it.
I also got a H0 model train set which is really cool. Mom also got me some extra track which is really cool. I have it set up on the dining room table. I am just nervous that Oliver will grab it but he has been really careful with everything.
Dad also gave me a really cool looking Survivorman t-shirt that says, “You Sweat, You Die” on the back.
I also got two books, one on projects that I can do on weekends and one on Allied Fighters of WWII. My great-grandfather was an air force mechanic in World War II and Dad showed me some of the airplanes that he worked on.
Oliver gave me a cool Tech Deck case and some Tech Decks to put in it that I really like.
Maggi gave me a junior sized Saskatchewan Roughrider football. Too bad that she isn’t allowed to fetch it.
Uncle Lee gave me two Nerf N-Strike guns and a Nerf basketball hoop for my bedroom door. Uncle Lee also gave all of us a Playstation 3. It only does everything. He gave us some Call of Duty: World at War, Force Unleashed II, and Madden 11. The last two games are Dad’s but I can play them.
When we went over to the Reimer’s they gave me some DVD’s of IMAX videos that we already had but they are going to exchange it for some other stuff. Kristi gave me a really nice Calgary Flames watch. I know the Flames are horrible this year but the watch is really nice.
Tonight Bert and Don are coming over. Bert was sick for a while and had to go to Calgary for an operation but he’s back now and I am excited to see them again. Anita and Jim are also coming over which will be a lot of fun.
Thanks everyone for the gifts. I really appreciated them.
