    It was 8:57 on Christmas Eve night, and we had a video game for a game system that we did not own. It wouldn’t work. Santa had no gift for our kid. This year of all years! Eli wrote not just one letter to Santa but two. He even went to see the big guy at Bass Pro Shop, an experience that Eli had declared was nearly the best day of his life. This was the year he actually got the hype.
