Jen and I in Austria.This is the photo our mom plans to send out with the family Christmas cards, which are late again this year.
On Christmas, I woke up earlier than usual.My sister, Jen was up even before me.We had stockings and presents to open!Jen and I get a lot of the same gifts, wrapped in matching paper so we know to open them at the same time (does anyone else do this?).Even Santa puts like-shaped gifts in similar packaging so neither of us opens one early and gives anything away to the other sister.
One thing my grandma gave me this year was a gold pendant in the shape of ballet shoes, since I'vestarted taking ballet again.She already gave me about 10 of these when I was a little girl.I can't explain it, but this time around, the gift made me feel very young and childish.Wah!
When we go over to my grandma's house, our cousins bring their better halves.Jen and I ride in the car with our parents.We are still the babies of the family.I'm glad my sister is single, too.She is one year older than me.I'm lucky that we can be in the same boat, even though neither of us wants to be in the boat.
Yesterday, after I went to see Cheryl and her baby, my sister and I drove outside of city limits to about 3 Walmarts and a Toys R Us and whatever else, just trying to find Wii Rock Band.We had the Beatles game and Wii console, but not the instruments.I was chuckling because my sister had never been to a Walmart before.Then I started laughing (crying?) because we were 2 thirty-somethings driving 50 miles looking for a video game.We don't even play video games!Sad to say, we did not locate a single Rock Band;everyone was out of stock.So we ended up competing in Wii Tennis.Just like when we had Nintendo and played Super Mario Brothers in like, junior high.
What was your kiddie moment this holiday?Do you like being treated like babies, or does it make you anxious to move on with your life?(I go back and forth.) Do you have an extra Wii Rock Band you need to unload?
