This was my best Christmas present!
There are many kinds of presents that one can receive over the holidays, and I'll touch on this in a journal later, but the best present that I received this year was the look on my son's face when he opened his "big present" from me this year, one that he had really wanted.
He had already received a bunch of presents, including a very cool multi-function watch that he had really wanted, and thought that it had been his big present. But then I told him to open an unwrapped plain cardboard box.
Do you remember the movie "A Christmas Story" where Ralphie's dad told told him to check behind the couch for another present?
Could this be it?
This was something that he really wanted, but I held back on it, saving it for last... a new FujiFilm FinePix S700 digital camera.
I had already figured out that he would be right out the door, taking photos of everything in sight... and that's exactly what happened, as you can see in the sequence of photos in the link.
As noted before, it was the best present that I received this year!
