11 in 2011 - Day 2 - Favorite Holiday Memory

My favorite holiday memories are mostly of when son1 and son2 were young.  Christmas time was still magical and enchanting for them.

A particular Christmas stands out because it was so hilarious.

Son1 and son2 were 4 & 2 I believe.  They each received a track suit for Christmas.  If I remember correctly they were Power Ranger related.
The original Power Rangers


The boys put them on over their pj's that morning.  It didn't take long for me to hear uproarious laughter coming from the hallway.

Son1 had somehow figured out that if you layed on your stomach and slid down the carpeted stairs backwards you could go really fast.  Of course son2 was not going to be left out of this fun.
 
As if this wasn't enough fun they quickly realized that after sliding down that if they touched each other they would shock each other!

So all new toys, unopened gifts and food were abandoned for a Christmas morning of power sliding down the stairs and shocking each other silly!!

If only there had been such a thing as YouTube back then.  They would have become Internet sensations I am sure!
