I seem to have forgotten to mention how the big gift went over with the kids. First, I have to say that I was really proud of the kids because though they had very few gifts to open, they didn’t complain. In fact, our gift opening time lasted about ten minutes at the most. It was so nice!
But the big gift, though yes, we are waiting on a replacement from the Nintendo people and haven’t really been able to enjoy it yet, did go over very well. And the kids don’t seem to even realize right now that other than their monkeys they have nothing to show for Christmas, if you don’t count the non-working gift!
But really. It did go over very well. Just look at these faces.
