Christmas Day 2008

After the festivities on Christmas Eve, Cindy and I were up at 5am and over at Jeremy and Wendy’s by 6. When Amber and Shawn arrived, we exchanged gifts and then jumped in our cars for the drive to Deltona for breakfast and Christmas morning gift-opening with AnnMarie, Jason, Mikey and Heather. The best part of Christmas is watching the grandkids open their presents. I think both Mikey and Heather got a lot of gifts and toys that they will enjoy for a while (at least a week). Heather loved her toy kitty that purrs and stretches its paws and the Dora the Explorer tricycle, while Mikey, our 7-year old budding computer programmer, was intensely excited when he opened his “How to” programming book and his Bill Gates biography.

Photos from both those fun gatherings are up on Flickr.

Cindy and I left Deltona and drove to Downtown Disney where we enjoyed a nice stroll, had lunch at the Earl of Sandwich and then went to the AMC theater to watch “The Day The Earth Stood Still”, starring Keanu Reeves in a role he was born to play…an alien in the form of a human that displays no facial expression and speaks in a monotone. Talk about owning a role!

The rest of the afternoon and evening we spent relaxing at home. All in all, a nice, enjoyable day.

About The Word Of Jeff

I'm a freelance writer and blogger who has written for, among others, Tribune Media Services, Suite101 and Athena Guides. As an intrepid traveler I have chronicled some of my travels at The Verbal Vagabond, my travel blog. And, being an avid amateur photographer, I also have a photography blog spotlighting photos I have taken of areas around my hometown at Postcards From Maggie Valley. Speaking of Maggie Valley, that is where my wife, our Golden Retriever/Border Collie mix, Bella, our Orange Tabby, Tigger and I live in a log cabin on a mountain in Western North Carolina, just at the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I enjoy hiking, camping, art, travel, photography (as mentioned above), and an occasional glass of good wine while reading or writing in front of the fireplace.

    Why am I not surprised! You think Mikey would tutor me? I’ve always wanted to learn programming. LOL
