Holiday Highlights

Its been a while, but these are too good not to share:

Eleanor: She came running into the kitchen with her 6th night of Hanukkah present unwrapped on the afternoon of the 4th night. I KNEW it had been quite!! She came in running and yelling “Mouse Mouse! Mom! MOuse!” The toy in her hand was a mickey mouse toy. (Matt did warn me that easy access to wrapped presents might not have been a great idea, he was right. really I am surprised it only happened once)

On Christmas at her Grandparents, she had no time to unwrap gifts. She rips open the paper enough to rip open the side of a clothing box. she reaches in and pulls out a Minnie Mouse tshirt and sweatshirt set. She was very pleased!

Dorothy: she moved all the Hanukkah presents over so Santa could come through our fire place. All the Hanukkah presents are on the hearth of our fireplace and each night we open the gift designated for that night. this year since Christmas and Hanukkah coincided, we had everything out at once. Dorothy was getting ready for Santa Christmas eve and we where talking about where he would come in to the house and where to leave him his snack… and she said if Santa came through the fire place he would walk on the presents. So she moved them over out of his way…
