Wrapping Up Christmas Gifts

For several months, The Twisters have been nagging about wanting a Nintendo Wii console under their Christmas tree this year.  We told them insistently, that that wish depended on their school performance.  If their grades were acceptable and if they made it to the next level, the console was possible.  We were careful to stress the word possible.

Serendipitously, The Twisters are passing to the next academic level and their school performance was acceptable.  This means that we will stick to our commitment and place a Nintendo Wii console under their Christmas tree on the 24th this month.  Last week we went to Multimax and acquired the longed gadget.

Last Sunday Abdiel and my wife wrapped it up.  He wanted to take it home, but we said, “No way Jose.”  It stays here until the time is ripe for Santa to deliver it on the Christmas Eve (if you still believe in Santa Claus—tongue-in-cheek).

Below are several pictures capturing the moment of the wrapping of the Christmas present.  We hope this gadget will contribute to keep the family together by playing entertaining games at home.  It is uppermost important for us to keep this family together and happy.

  1. What? IF there is a Santa Claus? Of course Santa is real. Now, he has a few friends who pretend to be the real thing, but I know better. Always have, always will! 😉

    I hear those Wiis are the greatest, by the way. I know a couple of families who have them and they seem to really enjoy them.

  2. Hi Linda:

    I knew I was going to get into to trouble when I address the Santa Claus topic. Sorry about that. There was a great movie about the existence of Santa Claus in New York, but at the moment I don’t remember the name of the film. It was very entertaining and convinced you the character was real.

    The Wii is ready to go. Waiting for Christmas Eve. The Twisters are very excited and just can’t wait till December 24th. If I could only be a child again. Sigh!

    Warm Regards,


  3. Miracle on 34th Street! Just watched it with my kinder aged granddaughter.

    Morning Omar,
    Just a tip on keeping the family together and the Wii. Do not let them use the bowling game! Entire generations have parted over the competition in this game. haha
    On the other hand, if you want a real workout without leaving the house, WiiFit is the ticket. And you can buy Wii related games for presents on Día de los Reyes. What a racket those Nintendo folks have? 🙂

  4. Hello Jim & Nena:

    Yeah, that’s the name of the movie. Excellent picture to view with the young ones and keep on believing that the man with the Ho Ho laughter and the white beard is real.

    I think Abdiel is thinking on playing FIFA 2013 with his parents. It’s almost like the real thing. Electronic games nowadays are absolutely amazing. Nothing compared with my clumsy toys we played with when I was a kid growing up in a banana plantation in Bocas del Toro.

    Warm Regards,
