Merry iChristmas

Comments 9 by Rebecca Bollwitt

For the record, my husband is great at keeping secrets and that doesn’t worry me. He surprised me with some of the most original gifts, all while ensuring they would be items I could enjoy everyday. Regardless, I’m just happy to be sitting here with him and my family as the snow begins to fall in Surrey.

my other present was a hatchet

PS I think my thumbs are too stubby for this iPhone and I need to find out how to scroll through my WordPress categories when composing a post with this thing.

UPDATE: Photos from John’s new camera. I decided the one he has from 2003 just wasn’t cutting it anymore…

PPS I think the kids had a great day and I had fun kickin’ butt at Trivial Pursuit 80s Edition with my brother. Tomorrow John and I will be heading out to enjoy something else I was lucky enough to receive today. As he puts it, he has two years to make up for – referring to the two years we were waiting for his immigration to come through and we lived solely off my income. I really don’t need him to play catch-ups with gifts. I’m just glad that he’s happy, he’s working, and we’re still able to do the inexpensive yet priceless activities that we love. More to come tomorrow.

    Glad it worked out with the iPhone gift (takes off elf hat). I think I can say that your husband sets a pretty high bar for the rest of us guys.

    Do you have the WP iPhone admin plugin?

    Ooh, someone got lucky!

    I suggest using your forefingers rather than your thumbs. It’ll require two hands but it’ll be likely be quicker. Not that I have any experience in the matter, but I’ve seen others doing it that way.

    Happy Holidays!

    […] things out. He didn’t belong to me, but I got some other goodies as well. Good thing because what I got Rebecca is enough to make me jealous if I didn’t have my own things to play […]

    I love the photo of you in the backyard when it’s snowing. Too cute.
    And I wouldn’t say you ‘kicked butt’ at trivial pursuit 😛 Although it was the Canadian edition so John was at a disadvantage a bit.
