Because of Dad’s long day at work, a robotics meeting, Rebecca’s surprise airplane flight, and her requested venison supper, it was nearly 10 pm before she could open her gifts. Poor girl!
Of course, her jackknife from Tennessee was in her pocket, on hand for emergencies such as these.
Christian’s version of giftwrapping.
A Minecraft game card. They’ve been playing a free version of the game together, but apparently this card will make Minecraft life easier for them?
I had no Rebecca-style wrapping paper on hand, and I was too
cheap thrifty to spend $5 on the camo-patterned giftwrap I knew she’d like, so I decided to use up some ridiculously-old floral stuff and patch the gaping sides with tissue paper. Lovely, huh?
I had tried to disguise the real box shape by using a multiple-box trick. Out came the jackknife again.
Oh, I also used some grocery bags for a few more layers of suspense (and sound suppression).
She’d been hoping for this Lego Sopwith Camel for years.
“Can I start building it now?”
I thank God for another crazy year with this delightful girl!
