Chirstmas Day 2009

Posted on Tuesday January 05, 2010 at 5:13pm in ,

Christmas started very early, as usual. We got up as a family and opened gifts. We started with stockings and then moved onto the presents under the tree.

I got a new guitar amp!

After opening gifts again at our place, we left for Aunt Kathleen and Uncle Fred’s house.

We did a Yankee Swap this year. This is a gift giving process where everyone gets a gift of $5 and wraps it. The presents are pooled together and one by one, a person either takes a present from the pool or steals an already opened present from someone else. At the end, everyone has a gift. It was pretty fun.

Next, we went to our final destination for the day: Grandma and Grandpa’s house.

Grandma and Grandpa got everyone “Cuddlees,” an obvious “Snuggie” knock-off.

We got back and Asami gathered all of her presents together to take a photo. She got quite a lot!

I never put all of mine together for a photo, but I’m sure I got quite a bit, too.
