Christmas 2006

I woke up shortly after nine this Christmas morning. If any breakfast was served, I missed it. We all opened gifts around ten. Luckily all us kids are too old to be crazy enough to get up early for this age old tradition. This year I have Jeff and my parents each a copy of Firefly: The Complete Series, a great show I’ve previously discussed in this log. Dad gave me a Sandisk Sansa e200 series MP3 player. This was a very nice gift, only tainted by the fact that I bought myself one the day before Dad suggested I not buy any gadgets before Christmas. When Rockbox is finally working on this player, I’m sure I’ll have a lot of flattering things to say about it. Jeff and Andrew got iPods. I suppose I would have received one myself but I openly dislike them. I also received some nice books.Later that afternoon, we had a nice dinner with pork roast, sweet potato casserole and a lot of the thanksgiving sort of side dishes. Shortly after that, we loaded up the car and went over the Aunt Dionne’s house to see her, Uncle Larry, Brandon, Grandma Janet, Aunt Doris and Uncle Joe. Unlike some years past there weren’t quite as many people, but there was more than enough noise and conversation. Having sufficiently mingled with family, I spent the better part of the evening there watching the Cowboys play the Baltimore Eagles. Although I have no love for either team, an Eagles win is of great benefit to the Saints in the playoffs. The Eagles won handily.I got some money from the Aunt Dionne and Grandma. Aunt Doris gave me a sweatshirt, same as every year. We left to go home sometime after nine. As I recall I got to bed at a decent hour that night.
