Mrs. Sirhc and I spent Christmas day with my dad’s family. Present were my parents, my grandmother, two uncles, one aunt, and three cousins. Missing were another aunt, three more cousins, and a cousin-in-law. It was a good day with lots of fun and lots of food. I haven’t seen my extended family in five years, so it was good to catch up.
This family gathering was different from those of the past. Gone were the games of poker and nickel-nickel, replaced countless games of bowling. That’s right, one of my cousins brought a Wii to Christmas. For the first time ever, my parents want a video game system (I told them the Wii was cool, but they didn’t believe me). I think Mrs. Sirhc may even allow me to buy one for us.
I had fun today. I really should try to get up here more often to visit my family.
