The Best Christmas Present December 27, 2007Posted by Sobek in Personal Experiences.
I hate shopping for Christmas presents. Actually, it’s not really the shopping, it’s the coming up with an idea of something to buy. Once I figure that out, the shopping part is pretty easy.
I’ve hit a few out of the park. When Mrs. Sobek was pregnant with our first, her lower back hurt her something awful, and I got her a handheld massage thing. I think that’s the best one. For her birthday this year, I got us two tickets to see the Nutcracker. For Christmas this year, I spent a very long time making a movie based on an Ogden Nash poem called The Tale of Custard the Dragon, featuring two of my kiddos.
The idea was to burn it onto DVD and give it to all the kiddos’ grandparents and great-grandparents, but I had technical difficulties, and didn’t get the DVDs ready. But I showed the video to everyone, and promised that the DVDs are forthcoming.
So, what’s the best Christmas present you ever gave?
