Sunday, December 25, 1988
The alarm went off and then the phone rang. It was Mary Jane summoning us for the opening of the gifts. Got to Mary Jane’s about 6:40 and by 7:00 all the gifts were opened by Kyle, Erich, and Ben. We had brought several gifts for both Kyle and Erich, a Pitch Back, the Crossfire game, a Nintendo carrying case, a mystery book-puzzle, a computer game (Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego), and the Larry Bird/Red Auerbach Winning Basketball video. They each got the 1988 Topp’s updated baseball cards.
Had breakfast of scrambled eggs and bacon, stolen and croissants, and we brought a large fruit salad. The kids were more into their activity projects and had momentarily forgotten the new Nintendo games! (Crossfire ended up being the most popular!) Their big presents were a body surfing boogie board for Erich, and a bike for Kyle. We left at 9:30 to open our own gifts.
