But with a gift they NEVER expected, from parents who have always said, "No way, save your money, those are too expensive," we managed to shock the both of them into complete speechlessness this year. Everything else they received paled in comparison, including the beanbag chair as big as he is, and the one-piece lounger that Karin has been wanting all year:
