A Green and Redneck Christmas
Well, it’s been a fairly typical McMillan clan Christmas, though we delayed gift opening until early this afternoon. The turkey was a success. No room for pie just yet.
Unfortunately, I forgot my digital camera at home, or I would have captured the moments for all to share. My sister was speechless with emotion, watching the faces of her 11 and 13 year old boys light up as they ripped off wrapping paper to discover Grandad had given them hatchets. They nearly forgot the knives in their excitement! “You’ll have to take those to school”, he offered.
Among the final tally: 5 knives, 2 hatchets, 3 model warplanes, a Socom II Navy Seals playstation war game and 6 John Deere logos. I got some pliers.
Just like a scene from a Norman Rockwell painting.
