Christmas 2010: History repeats itself.

Christmas 2010:  More presents from Grandma and Pappy.

When you're a kid, the present receiving doesn't just stop with Christmas morning. It's an all day marathon of ripping and tearing as various relations visit and contribute to your pile of shiny new stuff.

Christmas 2010:  Kung Zhu!

Like this Kung Zhu from Grandma and Pappy Bruno. That would be the Zhu Zhu pet number six for Lauren. There is officially a "no vacancy" sign hanging in her hamster condo.

Christmas 2010:  Mark and his chamois.

Grown-ups get stuff too. Mark was very excited about his chamois.

Christmas 2010:  Pappy checking out his slide scanner.

And Pappy got a nifty scanner to scan all those slides that he took while I was growing up.

Christmas 2010:  Grandma and Craig enjoying "the scriptings."

Which came in very handy as the evening progressed. Here is Grandma and Uncle Craig perusing Grandma's new Marilyn Monroe book.

The past always repeats itself.

Now let's take the Wayback Machine and set it 27 years ago to the year 1983 where we can pay a visit to Christmas past, where we'll see Grandma and Uncle Craig perusing Grandma's new Marilyn Monroe calendar.

That's the thing about Christmas. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

That is, except for Grandma's cleavage.

So know I get it....I mean about the cleavage....the apple certainly did not fall far from the tree!

Gee, I can't imagine who anonymous could be. ;) My resolution is to show even more in 2011.
