Christmas Day morning was a present-opening marathon and Hank and Max were in toy heaven. Santa brought Hank the firetruck he asked for, but, interestingly, Hank was most excited about the garbage truck that Santa brought for Max instead. I won the best-wife-in-the-world prize by getting Aaron and his best buddy, Hank, tickets to the Monster Jam. As for me, I'm just thrilled with my rice cooker (note sarcasm)! For a family that has already been generously blessed with everything we need, Santa was good to us this year.
"You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep a record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experiences." Gordon B. Hinckley, 2006
