Merry Christmas Friends

Hey there.  MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!  I hope everyone had a joyous Christmas.  Enjoy your time spent with your family and cherish these moments that will eventually be memories.  I took a few days off from the online world to focus on family and friends.  This year, we plan on passing down some pretty important items to our kids. Well, to our two oldest at least.  We feel that they are old enough to be able to know the value of an item that has been in the family for years.  With that in mind, we passed down my first guitar to our son.  I have this junior sized Peavy that I received around my 14th birthday.  It was my first guitar and the reason I really took on music and inspired me to become the music lover that I am today.  When presented to my son, the first words spoken were, "You have got to be kidding me!"  lol  He's not one to get overly excited, but that's about as good as gold when it comes to him.  I also got him a small amp so that he can practice on.  Nothing too elaborate, but nice enough to have overdrive and clean sounds.  He being a fan of Metallica, will want to be able to have that heavy sound.  Even though it won't be anywhere near high quality.

To our daughter, my wife decided to hand down some Hello Kitty items.  For those of you not in the know, my wife loves Hello Kitty.  Dolls, jewelery, clothes, and all sorts of other Hello Kitty items can be found in our house.  lol  Well, my wife decided that she would like to hand down a bracelet and necklace to our older daughter.  My wife literally shed a tear when wrapping it up.   Our daughter quickly exclaimed, "That's what I wanted!", which leads us to believe that she may have had her eye on it before.  lol

All in all, it was a good Christmas.  We spent time with both of our families and had us some pretty damn good food.  I hope that all of you had a wonderful evening.  Later!
