Humbling, frankly. I remember them quite fondly almost 5 years ago. Now, here I am taking pictures and reflecting warmly on the many smiles and frustrations they’ve all caused.Seriously, I jest though. In truth, there is a true love I’ve seen grow in me towards my “adopted” kids and family, and I’ve grown a lot as a result. It’s certainly given me clarity and vision to how I am towards my own kids and love that they also were able to celebrate this day.
I digress though! Tina threw a nice shin dig at her house with family and friends, and it was an absolute blast! Tyler made out like a bandit and was able to get every gift he’s wanted. Let’s just say, if you can score two major video game systems in one weekend… even I was envious.It was fun, speaking of video games, when Tina and her older sister Lisa threw down the gauntlet and the old “Atari” got unpacked for some sister rivalry playing some “River Raid”!
In the days of Xbox, PS4s, Vita, and 3DS, it was great seeing the kids also get into it. Tyler and I spent some good time challenging each other to several games of Combat! Needless to say, I had to school him ..but it was all in good fun, and he still had a blast!
T-Minus 24 days to Christmas… let’s buckle in, and hang on! I know for us, it’s going to be quite busy between the various families, and tons of kids and relatives to shop for! Certainly don’t want to wait till the last minute!
