Who Likes Presents? I do! I do!
I haven’t had a chance to get on here and explain how awesome a Christmas I had this year. Cheri and I got to travel down to Chesapeake to visit both Cheri’s and my parents. It was a great time. We were able to spend lots of quality time with both parents and eat good food and just enjoy the time off from our jobs. On top of that we were also able to visit with Cameron for a small bit–always a bonus! Along with Christmas comes the great gifts everyone was so generous to bestow upon us.
Cheri and I both got each other Nintendo DS Lites. Cheri got the white version, and I got the black onyx version. This is probably the most fun I’ve had with a game system in a long time. Cheri got me Mario Kart DS and I got her The New Super Mario Brothers. Both games are super duper fun. And the games don’t end there. Rob and Bobbi (my brother-in-law and his girlfriend) got me Trauma Center: Under the Knife (yes, that’s correct, a surgery game!) and I got Big Brain Academy from my mother-in-law. There will be plenty of work not getting done around here next semester!
The other present I’ve been excited about is the guitar amp that Rob got me (isn’t he a great brother-in-law?). Its my first ever guitar amp. Its a Behringer 15 Watt Vacuum Tube amp. It sounds so damn good yet it is so tiny, it is unbelievable. This is probably the perfect amp for apartment living. I also got a guitar method book from my parents. So soon enough I will be rocking with the best of them.
I also got a ton of new music for Christmas. I got American V: A Hundred Highways by Johnny Cash, Brushfire Fairytales by Jack Johnson, The White Album by The Beatles, The Black Parade by My Chemical Romance, How to Save a Life by The Fray, and Eyes Open by Snow Patrol (the last three were bought with gift cards). So I have lots to add to my iPod and enjoy on my way to and at work :).
