When the girls came home from school I had their Christmas presents wrapped and under the tree. They noticed them right away and sat down under the tree to look at them. They started shaking them and trying to guess what was inside. Because Gineli was leaving on Friday for the island with her sister, we decided to open presents on Friday morning. I made French Toast and we invited Kristel to come over to open hers at the same time.
Gineli and Sulmi sign, "What's this? What's inside?"
When I was a little girl my mother used to keep the presents in the attic, where my bedroom was. Once or twice I went into the storage room to see them...to gawk at the shopping bags and to wonder...but I never peeked. Surprising, huh? I like the anticipation, the guessing, the waiting and the surprise. It was fun to watch the girls guess... and to each guess I replied, "Hmmm could be."
