Pass the Phillips Head Screwdriver

arrrggg. On Christmas eve Christine and I had her parents and some good friends of ours over for dinner. It's a tradition for us to have Christmas eve dinner at our house. Once everyone leaves, the cleanup starts and then the dreaded hauling of the "Santa presents" that we were in hiding, up from the basement to put under the tree. Usually there are countless hours spent putting together toys from directions written and illustrated by someone with a 9th grade eduction - this year was no different. Except for the fact that I wound up putting Alec's "ESPN 6 Game" (that's right, 6 different sports games in one) monstrosity together on the 26th vs Christmas Eve/Day. Two and a half hours later, I had the 24 second clock working on the basketball backboard and the kids yelling and screaming to "be next" in trying to beat dads score of 73 points. ahhh Christmas!

p.s. I think they should put a sticker on toys that require assembly that indicate how many hours "on average" it should take to assemble. Like they do for food with calories, fat, carbs, etc.
