Christmas - Ian

Ian's "that one" in the family. He is weird about presents. He knows what he wants and he likes what he gets, but he's not very good at expressing appreciation. He gets that from me, as my parents like to remind me. When he opens a present he likes, he smirks and gets funny lip twitches. Not exactly the most charming, but it is him. We learned how much he truly liked his gift of a scooter from Santa in the week after Christmas - when he spent most of his break on the driveway, riding it over his little homemade ramps. The thought of being able to ride a scooter in December would have been foreign to me (maybe that's why I never remember getting bikes for Christmas) but it was very mild here, with no precipitation, so he was good to go with a jacket.
