Christy’s Birthday Present

Her birthday is tomorrow. I bought her an iPod Nano before she went into the hospital, which I’m going to consider an early birthday present. I had wanted to wait until Christmas for her big present, but Evelyn was so excited by it, she wanted to go home and tell her mom all about buying “Mommy’s big gun.”

We got her a shotgun — a Remington 870 with a 26″ barrel. She’s thrilled.

  • I must say that the year Gerald got me my 243 was my favorite but now Tyler uses it so there appeared to be some extra thought put into that one. Gerald says you an never have enough guns. Evelyn could prob use a 243 in a few years, great first kid gun. LOL. Merry Christmas to all of you. Sending love.
