25 Days of Cookies: Day 2

I am an only child. While I wished at times I had a brother or sister to play with, I felt very blessed to have my parents all to myself. I was treated like an individual, older than I was. No kids table talk, no sharing, no baby sitting… and while I knew Christmas wasn’t all about the gifts, I did pretty well on Christmas morning.

NESMy most memorable Christmas morning gift was my NES (Nintendo Entertainment System). I was killing Bowser by the age of 8 and I still love video games today. And yes, I still have my NES system and yes, it still works! What can I say: I’m a nerdy gamer and a Nintendo fan for life! My favorite game: Zelda. Oh, I do love me some Zelda!

What was your most memorable Christmas morning gift?
