Christmas - Books, books and more books

Merry Christmas!

We opened up our gifts on Christmas Eve. We gave James a WII for Christmas and of course he had to try it out. Once we figured out the configuration to get the dvd player on video 3 and the WII on video 4, then we were set to go. I also bought two extra remotes and nunchuk controllers so we could all play. The WII came with a sports game package and I got him the games: Star Wars the Complete Saga and Outdoor Adventure. Santa got him Cars and Super Mario Galaxy, plus a couple wii wheels, and the book Mysterious Benedict Society.

Father received a looj robot gutter cleaning system. He unfortunately can't test it out because he's not going to be climbing any ladders soon. We got him several books including Intrepid's last case by William Stevenson, My Country Versus Me, the First Hand Account by the Los Alamos Scientist Who Was Falsely Accused of Being A Spy by Wen Ho Lee, (mouthful of a title) Herding Cats, a Life in Politics by Trent Lott and Flight, 100 Years of Aviation. Plus the Spacecrafts DVD Apollo 7 Shakedown Cruise.

And the moment you've been waiting for. Father and James gave me several books including two rather huge books: War and Peace by Tolstoy, 1424 pages and Walls of Phantoms by Courtney Thomas which is 1320 pages and supposedly the 3rd largest self published novel ever written. He got James and I the Handbook of Nature Study by Anna Comstock which we'll be using for home school. And four other books from my wishlist: Bad Faith, A Sister Agatha Mystery by Aimee and David Thurlo, Distant Echoes by Colleen Coble, Edge of Midnight, The McCloud Brothers #4 by Shannon Mckenna and Sarah Palin, a New Kind of Leader by Joe Hilley

Today we are going to have a quiet lazy day at home playing, reading and napping. Tonight I will be fixing prime rib and yorkshire pudding for dinner. The shop is closed for the rest of the week and we are all going to enjoy a mini vacation. Especially me.
