Santa was good to me this year:
Strong Bad DVD
New Chris Tomlin CD, Arriving
Return of the King, Special Extended Edition
Return to Waterloo on DVD
m-Audio Keystation 49e (expect more MP3s soon)
Namco Joystick with Pac-Man, Dig-Dug, Galaxian, Boscovian, and Rally X
7.5 foot prelit fiber optic Christmas tree
Jen and I also got a chance to perform at our new church on Sunday. We did a medley of “Here I Am To Worship,” “Papers and Boxes,” and “O Come All Ye Faithful.” We followed that up by doing the Barenaked Ladies’ version of “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen/We Three Kings.” We were pleased with how it went. Apparently, others were as well: we’ll be leading worship there next week.
Also on Sunday, I helped my friend Brett move some of his fiance’s stuff into his house. They get married in less than two weeks, and I couldn’t be happier for them.
On Saturday, we did the normal Christmas thing for us. After we got up, Gracie found and opened her presents from Santa. Then we got ourselves together and headed to my sister’s house for breakfast with her family, my parents, and my grandparents. After we exchanged gifts and hung out for a while, we went to Jen’s parents’ place for more family stuff (we do our gift exchange with them on Christmas Eve to help slow down the Christmas day schedule a bit).
Good Christmas this year. Plus, I’m still off until Wednesday.
And then Thursday is LOTR day. Sweet.
