Genius idea from Max: Regift to yourself

 

Max didn't have his fill of Cars 2 presents for Chanukah. So he decided he was going to regift a present...to himself. He walked over to the toy box where we keep a lot of Lightning McQueen stuff and pulled out a puzzle. Then he grabbed gift wrap from a present he'd already opened and attempted to re-wrap. Sabrina joined in. Last, he got Dave to give it to him. Voila!


I thought it was pretty smart, though Martha Stewart would surely have a heart attack if she saw this.

(Dave, sweetie, don't get any ideas; you still owe me a birthday present. xo)

    I have been a stranger in these parts.... We got busy, busy, busy and I disappeared for a while!! It feels so good to back!! ;)
    Love, love, loved that video!! Sabrina is quite the ham!! Love it!! Max did his best at wrapping the puzzle!! I love his proud smile!! As a wrapping-challenged individual who does not have CP, I am impressed by his determination!! My gifts are always lumpy and I use way too much paper!! I gave up for a while, I'm afraid!! Gift wrapping is highly overrated, anyway!! Hee, hee, hee.... ;-D
    I love Max's idea of "re-gifting"!! Clever!! ;)
    Happy belated Chanukah!! ;-D

  3. This reminds me of a Christmas with my grandmother, who was generally quite sharp, but her memory was going a bit. Every half hour or so she'd return to her pile of gifts, lift up an item or two, say "was this mine?", and admire it anew. I thought it was a pretty good deal as she got a lot of new enjoyment out of each gift!

  4. What Max could not what the few short days between Chanukah and his birthday to open more presents? :) It's good OT and a cute video.

  6. That's awesome. They always say that the anticipation is the best part anyway. Looks like Max is just trying to recapture that joy of "can't wait to open this-ness."
