Today, I’m continuing with this week’s theme of belated Christmas posts; I sure hope you don’t mind. This will hopefully be the last one.
After everyone (me, my brother and granddad) arrived over at my parents’ house, we were treated to a breakfast of homemade waffles thanks to my dad. I didn’t even know he had a waffle iron! They were good and I think most of us were glad to have something warm in our bellies.
Then came the part we had all been waiting for – presents! I love buying presents for people. I’ve mentioned it before and will say it again, I think I do a pretty good job of picking out gifts for people and I always like to see their reaction to the gifts I have chosen for them.
For my mom, I got a homemade Alabama jacket, and I, of course, didn’t take any photos of it. She wore it to church this past Sunday and got a lot of compliments from what I hear. I also got her some jewelry and some house shoe boots and some other things.
Nice boots, Deb!
For my dad, I got a Garmin, a Fry Daddy, a cookbook and some other things as well. My mom surprised him with a Wii but I think she enjoys playing it the most. She’s gotten really good at bowling so watch out – if you come over to her house she will challenge you to a match and then proceed to beat the socks off of you.
I gave my brother a couple of CDs and a couple of gift cards to fast food places so he can eat some lunch on my nickel.
That's my brother over on the right looking less than thrilled.
I don't know why but I didn't take any solo shots of him.
He's wearing his paper hat from his Christmas cracker!
My granddad got a gift certificate from Gibson’s because he likes to eat breakfast there. My parents got him some clothes and maybe some cologne. I really can’t remember.
Here's my granddad wearing a toboggan and a paper hat.
Santa brought me a new suitcase for my upcoming trip overseas as well as a couple of new skillets and a weed eater! I blew the motor out in my weed eater this past summer so that was indeed a good gift. I got some other things as well.
My dad got the four of us (him, my mom, my brother and me) a long sleeve t-shirt that says “Property of Parker Family”. I didn’t get a picture of these but we all wore them on New Year’s Eve and I know my mom has a photo of it. Maybe she will send it my way and I can post it for you.
The Tide got some treats and was generally unimpressed with all the Christmas present opening.
It was a really good Christmas and I think everyone enjoyed their gifts. How about you? What was the best gift you gave and/or received?
