Looking back on Christmas 2010, it’s quite apparent that the Nerf Gun was the hit of the day. I bought three of them. One for each kid. I should have bought two more for the wife and me so we could defend ourselves, but I didn’t. Oh well, lessons learned.
We try to give our kids at least one substantial gift and a whole lot of “extra” stuff. Substantial in our book would mean iPods, cameras or musical instruments. Extras would be Lego sets, DVDs and books. New socks and underwear are classified as “lumps of coal.”
Next year I think we’re going to forgo anything expensive and stick to Nerf weaponry. I don’t know what message that sends, but it sure is fun to shoot up the place.
