Merry Christmas

Just couldn't wait to give my grandson Zach his Christmas gifts this year.  I held out two boxes and asked him ...'which box of clothes would you like to open first (trying to throw him off track)?"  He opened up his favorite soccer team wall hanging first.  It already has a dowel and ready for hanging.  
Second box had an official Barcelona soccer ball, air pump with 5 different size needles and its own carry bag.
His parents gave him many clothes and entertaining gifts teen boys like and then dad had to have a little fun with his son.  Greg had wrapped a bunch of goodies in this bundle of saran wrap which took Zach 9 minutes to open.  Little at a time Zach unwrapped his favorite strawberry gum, miscellaneous small candies and money in various denominations; all separated by more layers of saran wrap. 
When Zach gathered up his money he had received a total of $50 so was a happy boy.  Below is my 14 year old grandson and me.  Zach is over 6' tall and was determined today by mom and me that he is officially a smidgen taller than his father by maybe 1/2".  I believe that made Zach more happy than any of the gifts he received for Christmas.  
Hope all my blogger friends have a very Merry Christmas.
