Jordan needed a new laptop. His died just as school was starting this past fall and because we use Switched on Schoolhouse for some of our homeschooling he has to have a windows computer to do his schoolwork on. Since the death of his old, hand-me-down laptop he had been doing school on a desktop that Aaron had pieced together so we could make do until we could afford a laptop. My husband found him a great laptop and we split the cost with my in-laws.
Christmas Eve we are at my in-laws opening gifts and we get to the laptop box, which hubby had wrapped. We don’t usually open our big gifts on Christmas Eve so Jordan wasn’t expecting his laptop until Christmas Day. He starts to unwrap the gift and well, I’ll let the photos tell the story.
We all got a good laugh! Hubby said there was extra room in the box and he wanted to put some kind of gag gift in there so he went to the store and looked around and when he found the Cars 2 Etch-a-Sketch he knew it would be the perfect “old school computer” to put in with the laptop.
Did anyone in your family get any retro toys for Christmas? Leave me a comment and let me know.
