When we celebrated my birthday a few days ago (32!) Charis was pretty excited about everything. She and Joy baked me a cake, which Charis chose to decorate with blue icing and lots of dinosaur sprinkles, because she figured daddy would definitely like dinosaurs. When it was time to open presents, Charis asked if she could help me open them. While she was tearing off the paper she said “This is fun!”, and then once we had all the paper removed and the box was revealed, she excitedly said, “Oh, dad, I think you got a package!” After I opened the box she asked, “Can I get in it?”, because for some reason the crazy kid really likes to stand or sit in boxes. Who can explain it. So considering how excited Charis was to open someone else’s presents, I think she’ll have a pretty good time on Christmas. :-)
