wiggle, wiggle, wiggle - it's Christmas day!!!

That's the chorus of a funny self-made song Grace has been singing for weeks!

She'll run all around the house singing that line so excited and then when we tell her "not yet" she'll argue that it IS Christmas day. So of course Christmas morning, video camera in hand, we tried to get her to sing it but she got all camera shy and barely said the words. Isn't that the way it always goes with kids? Too funny!

Santa was really good to us. Guess he liked those yummy cookies we made for him since all he left behind was a couple of crummies. Soon after checking out Santa's plate, the little pumpkin made her way to the tree, where this got her attention A shiny, classic PINK radio flyer tricycle! Such a cute shade of pink too! I love the seat - makes me think of salt water taffy - part pink, part white. And did you see Super, our elf? Yup, for his last visit of the year, he parked himself right on that trike.

It was too cute to see her reaction. Christmas with little ones around is just mAgiCaL! Little guy was quite fond of his gifts too. That little car racer was one of his favorites. It makes vroom, vroom sounds and what nots when you pull the handle. He loves batting at it and honking the horn. One more reminder to me that he is 100% boy through and through. Santa must have quite the sense of humor, he left a very special present waaaaay up there! Wonder what it could be??? It's..THE..LONG..NOSED..PIG..BOOK! That smile is worth all the trouble Santa's elves went through to find that book. OINK, OINK! My best two gifts! A lovely morning indeed! And the best part of our morning - JESUS, the reason for the season! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BABY JESUS!!!
