After being stuffed on bacon, toast, and scrambled eggs Rosalee was FINALLY ready to care what was under the tree. We started by opening stockings and as soon as Rosalee saw that her fruit was a bunch of bananas she had to eat them before moving on to the presents. So while she continued to eat, Jesse and I took turns opening our stockings.
This year Santa brought Trouble a bag of pig ears which kept her busy for most of the morning.
Here is Jesse and his goodies. The funny thing about his apple is when he saw it he thought it was a chocolate covered cheese ball. I'm not sure that those exist or if they do if people would eat them, but that's what Jesse thought he got. I almost felt bad telling him it was an apple.
Good ol' Santa! Somehow he always knows exactly what to give me.
We couldn't get Rosalee to stay still with her stocking gifts so we just put them next to the ball toy and took a picture. I think the half eaten banana adds a bit of class to the photo.
After Rosalee played with the ball popper several more times we got her to open some more presents. The masking tape on the present was from when she tried to open the gift a week early. When we finally let her open the presents she was so delicate about it. She's really funny about things sometimes!
This year Rosalee got some toys, books, and a few outfits. She kept kissing the box of this toy and calling it a "gwin". We tried to get her to say pen-guin but I guess it'll come in time.
As soon as Rosalee opened her gift from Angie and Brett she had to stop and read her books. She refused to open anything else until her dad read to her. Thank you Angie for the GREAT animal books! Rosalee really likes the frog book with the real frog photos.
Thank you Angie and Brett for thinking of us this Christmas!
What makes Marie happy? Beautiful funky shoes from Santa. I love that I can send Jesse to the store and know that if he returns with a shoe box that I don't have to worry.
After a busy morning we got dressed and headed to our friend's house for a wonderful dinner.
