Tribute To My Brother.

So I had the best Christmas ever!!!!!
My little brother is the sweetest kid in the world. I asked for an Ipod for my birthday this year and needless to say my family is poor so I didn't get it. I didn't really think I would anyway I know how things work but I have been joking around since then about people getting me one. What I really wanted for Christmas this year was the Jason Upton CD Faith. I knew it would be a hard thing to find but I figured it was a little more in my family's price range. As Christmas approached my family made it clear to me that I would not be getting the CD cause they couldn't find it. I guess as my friend John says "gullible isn't a word in the dictionary." so Christmas comes and I got a pretty scarf from my Aunt and Uncle, some small stuff from my sister, and Jojo, the great kid that he is, gave me two free car cleanings. They were all great gifts. Then Jonny hands me a gift that I can tell is a CD. I wasn't surprised Jonny usually gets me a CD but I opened it up and surprise surprise Jason Upton Faith. What do you know? He had it overnighted at Budget tapes. So I start in on the nasty wrapping and the annoying stickers they put on those things to keep them inside. I guess they just leap out of the jewel case otherwise. I open the case and the CD wasn't there. Instead there was ipod software. I just sat there in shock. I didn't believe it. Jonny got up and pulled the box out of the closet. I was a 20 GB photo and they had put 950 song on it to give me a start. I started to cry. Apparently Jonny had bought most of it for me. I was so touched! he's 18! Works at McDonald he doesn't have that kind of money! My Parents and my big bother had helped too so it wasn't all on his own but it's still a lot. I was so blown away! Any way that's my awesome Christmas story!
