Merry Christmas 2014

Christmas with a toddler was so fun!! She's been telling us that Santa says "Ho Ho Ho! Merry Christmas!" and pointing out pictures of Santa whenever she saw them.

December 25, 2014

She didn't quite get into all the excitement this year, but she did understand that Santa (who lives at the mall, according to her) brought her some presents and put them under the Christmas tree.

 

The guitar was a huge hit. We have a Laurie Berkner DVD, and anytime we watch it, she pretends to play the guitar just like Laurie. Her Kindermusik teacher also plays the guitar, and she is fascinated with it.


Her other favorite gift was a digital camera. She sees me take a lot of pictures, and she uses several of her toys as a pretend camera, so we figured she would enjoy having a camera of her own. It takes real pictures and has a screen on the back where you can preview the pictures - just like Mama's camera!




Her stocking was filled with art supplies - paint, markers, stamps (all washable ink!)...


a flashlight...



and a book of temporary tattoos!


Santa brought Piper some new toys and an elk antler.


Later in the day we had to improvise a strap for her guitar because her hands aren't yet big enough to hold the guitar and strum.


We had a fun Christmas, and now we're looking forward to a whole week of family fun while Daddy's off work!
