On Black Friday (the special sale on the day after Thanksgiving), David and I stood for 20 minutes to get into Target. When we got in, we scrambled to buy a karaoke machine for Julia and a portable DVD player with 9 inch screen for Rylan. These were to be their Christmas presents. Well, it turns out that the kids weren’t thrilled with these gifts, so Maria went to Target and exchanged them for two gift cards.
This is Maria’s letter to me:
We returned the Christmas presents you gave the kids today, and they picked out new toys. I’ve attached the photos of their loot. They still have balances on the gift cards we got in exchange for their presents, so they are excited to be able to go back to pick out more things later.
Julia picked out a Barbie hair styling set. She’s so into pretend and dress up. She’s been playing with it all day:
Rylan picked out one Power Ranger figurine that matches one Lisa gave him. He also got a Super Smash figurine that he can interchange parts if he gets others. And he saw a Power Rangers DVD that he absolutely wanted even though he can see all the episodes on Netflix. He watched it all today, too.
You should’ve seen Ry today. He was so excited and in awe about all the toys he could pick from. There was one toy he wanted to get that was $40 (that didn’t do much), so I told him it would cost most of his money. He changed his mind quick after hearing that. Hehe.
Thank you again for the thoughtful gifts. I’m sorry you waited in line so long for us, but the intention is appreciated.
We love you.
