Christmas 2010 recap

Christmas is a good time to learn to receive graciously, as well as give joyously. On Christmas Eve night, Vin helped me set out Shelby's gifts, and come Christmas morning, he handed Shelby her Christmas present. A little blue octopus with a really loud squeaker inside.


She wasted no time.


As for the boy, he got his first toddler bike!


Which he promptly decided was "broken" because it was so "wobbly" and started fixing it with his tools. His repairs must have worked because now he likes to ride it around the house, chasing Shelby.

Aww, Shelby looks like she's enjoying opening her present! And I'm sure you just needed to have a really loud squeaker on the toy! And wow, a real toddler bike! Vin is sure growing up fast!

I forgot to mention, he's fixing the bike by taking a toy saw to the tire. I'm not confident in his repair skills so far.
