This Christmas Becky and I spent some time with family. All of my brothers and sisters were there and so were my mother's two daughter-in-laws.
We had lots of fun together. We went and saw Sherlock Holmes 2 together.
After which we went out to eat.
It was good to see my brothers and sisters talking, laughing and smiling.
We did a lot of game playing...
One of the interesting stories about this Christmas was that my bother Joe, sold his Xbox to buy our sister Monica a Wii. Monica really wanted a Wii. Jed, didn't know that Joe sold his Xbox and bought Joe some Games for the Xbox. It reminded me of the story of "The Gift of the Magi".  William Sydney Porter (O. Henry). The Gift Of The Magi http://www.online-literature.com/donne/1014/ [Link]
There were a lot of interesting interactions over our time together.
We learned that all of us like to play the game but we each play it differently. Some:
- Play the game to win.
- Play the game for fun.
- Play the game to keep certain others from winning.
- Play the game for the game's sake.
There was lots of silliness.
And we saw Jeremiah smile.
