Oh, and thanks to my blogging comments, I got a sewing machine for Christmas! Woo hoo! I am eager to start learning how to sew. Okay, on with the show.
All three kiddos just love their Santa gifts. Good job, old man!
Santa brought Ella a jumpy, exercising thing.
Santa left Sean a box full of wonderful Wiggles stuff: Captain Feathersword, a Wiggles V-Smile game and a Wiggles DVD.
Santa brought what Aidan asked for, a Playstation 2.
Ella gave her "Super" big brothers something special, custom capes.
Nana and Papa gave Sean a V-Smile Motion toy. He loves to try to play it, but doesn't quite have it figured out yet.
Ella needed some napping breaks.
Grandpa and Gramma
Doug's brother, Curt, gave Aidan his MOST.FAVORITE.GIFT. ever. Yes, we are bad parents, we let our 6 year old play a game for adults. I have no excuse for why we do.
Eleanor got her first doll, from Nana. Nana said she couldn't resist because it looks like E, with the blond hair and blue eyes. Nana also got her the pink Bumbo chair. Luckily, Ella's big thighs still squeeze in there.
Of course, they got more than this, but I don't want to bore everyone! Let's just say we are very blessed to have so many people that love us and love to see our family happy.
Oh, and one of the greatest gifts this holiday: Sean took communion at Christmas Eve service! He ate all of the wafer that was given to him and was so pleased with himself. He rubbed his tummy and said "Yum Yum Yum!" Spectacular! Then on Saturday he stole Aunt Tanya's chair from her at dinner and nibbled on the cheese on her cheeseburger, dipped fries in ketchup & sucked it off, and ate 3 grapes (chewed them even!) Amazing amazing amazing!
