The bestest zombie Christmas gift ever!

December 31, 2009 at 12:09 pm by thetheorist

The ladytheorist and littletheorist gave me the most awesome Christmas gift ever. For a few weeks before Christmas, I was told to stay out of the glove box in the car, as I had a gift hidden there. I couldn’t figure out why they would leave a gift there and not just wrap it. Turns out it was a little book called It’s Beginning to Look a lot like Zombies! The girls had been practicing in the car whenever they went anywhere to learn some of the carols. The even wrote a few of their own, some classics that weren’t in the book (like Silent Night). When I opened the book on Christmas morning, the girls serenaded me with several of the songs (both out of the book and their own), even adapting one song to include my name! I totally teared up as they were singing to me. I have a massive weak spot for both zombies and Christmas carols, combine them and you’ve just destroyed me. What really got to me though was knowing that my girls know me so well that they knew this would totally get to me.

I have the most awesome family ever!

Oh, and by the way, we’ve had zombies on the brain lately anyway (related to the couple of teases I’ve made about a new project). I promise that more info is coming. It got delayed due to us going back to work on the house to get it ready to host Christmas, and then the actual hosting of Christmas. I should get back to working on it directly after the new year (maybe even this weekend!).

    That is spectacular! What an awesome, thoughtful gift. I would never have come up with anything like it, that’s for sure. I’m glad you got such a perfect present!
