Emma actually entertained the thought of sitting on Santa’s lap this year. Mainly, to ask for one request. A Furby. My grandma has one of the original Furby’s and Emma took a liken’ to it. So, from then on, all she wanted from Santa was this talking toy. (Oh, then later she tacked on a bicycle as an additional request. I think daddy helped put that in her head.)
So, we went to the Cavalier to see Santa this year. As soon as we got close to him, it was a fail. As it has been every year. So, mommy sat on his lap while Emma sat on mine. Lucky guy.Being that close she didn’t want to look at him…. but she whispered out ‘i want a furby’ Just enough for her wish to come true.
Christmas morning & her birthday make for lots of extra presents. We try to keep her birthday special so we started the tradition of a birthday tree. This year she really helped trimmed the tree. And, yes, it has two ‘m’ in trim. Who knew?
Emma would often find her sneaky Elf (named ‘sneaky’) eating her candy or coloring pictures of her.
Emma got a special ornament from her best friend Parker. She literally would hold it in her hands every day.
We prepared the house with fresh baked cookies for Santa and a carrot for his reindeer.
And so she woke up to find her special things waiting for her.
Out of all of the gifts…. she spent most of her morning with this gift. The cleaning set. She’s definitely got some of her daddy’s blood.And after opening all of the cool gifts, we enjoyed a Christmas breakfast that daddy prepared.
And I’m proud to say, I will no longer be the only one in the house capturing our special moments. We now have a new photog amongst us.
