Santa's Late Visit

Most of you already know that Santa didn't bring my girl much this year. He knew we couldn't fit it all in our suitcases, so he promised to come back to see my girl about a month later. He stayed true to his promise and dropped off these goodies tonight.

Tiny little pots and pans AND a tiny little broom and mop. She loves all of these things and has spent lots of time playing with the real thing! She doesn't have a kitchen yet, but she will be ready to cook and clean when she gets one!

What kid doesn't love a xylophone? I remember this thing from when I was a kid. It makes noise so I'm sure she will bang on it all day.

Books and the FridgeFarm. We have the Fridge DJ and it was love at first sight. So, I'm hoping the FridgeFarm will also be a hit. The girl loves her horses and cows!

Stride-to-Ride Dino. She will probably ride more than stride, but I'm hoping she is able to zoom around our big patio!

And here is where Santa left it. I can't wait to see her face in the morning. I'm just so excited for her! We are still waiting for him to bring the Sand and Water Table (the Toys R Us guy said it would be a few weeks before they had any).

I realize that I may be completely disappointed by her lack of enthusiasm, especially if she would rather play with cotton balls and her sand bucket. Cotton balls. Who would have thought? They kept her entertained for nearly 20 minutes!

Other happenings today:
1) I'm so embarrassed about this that I can't believe I'm actually going to tell you. We were 30 minutes late for church this morning. 30 minutes = half the service. We are ridiculous and there is no excuse. It's 1 hour a week. We should be able to get our tails there on time. It's the least we can do for all the gifts we've been given. Next week we will make it. It's a promise.
2) AC has expanded her entertainment horizons. She is quite the fan of the Backyardigans. It's a welcome change for Mama and Daddy.
3) The ants are still swarming into the trap.
4) On the way home from church, AC clearly said, "Baby, Baby," as she tried to pluck the eyelashes off her baby. Woohoo!!! Add one more word to our tiny, but growing, list of words!!


  1. We have the Let's talk book and the kids love it! It has helped so much with Blake's speech (Kylie's as well). Also, Blake loves the Backyardigans too! It's a cute show and not too annoying.

    Take care!

  2. We LOVE us some fridge farm. We also have the fridge DJ and Fridge Car Wash. It is fridgetastick at our house. Love that she said BABY, but yet so sad for all her eyelashless babies! :)
