    "Peek" Might be an Understatement

    I would unwrap everything, try on, play with and carefully rehearse reactions in advance. And I still do :). If the thing isn't so great, I practice acting the right amount of happy. If it's just what I always wanted, I gotta have the perfect surprised look ready to go. The thing...

    Be Careful Not to Tear the Wrapping Paper!

    It Was Only One Year

    I had just been told at a very young age the truth about Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny, too. I found a bag in one of the closets that was full of [as yet] unwrapped Christmas presents. I started looking inside boxes. I had only managed a couple of these when Mom came in and...

    A Long Time Ago

    I would sneak into the family room where the christmas gifts were. I would take a gift and peel off some of the wrapping that was directed towards the tree. That way, if someone was looking at the gifts, they wouldn't be able to see the paper was torn. I figured if I peeled back...
