We opened our presents before we head out for our multi-state vacation! :) The kids have been surprisingly good about leaving the presents under the tree alone for the last 2 weeks. I was pretty sure Jacob didn't realize what they were...and I was right! We had to convince him to open the first one. But after he realized what they were, we couldn't keep him out of them!! I couldn't hide the other presents (the ones for family other than Jacob!) well enough. He ripped into 4 of them in a matter of a minute. It was like the tissues he used to yank out of the box...the second he heard you coming, he ripped even faster. Little stinker!!
Same for him--CARS!!!!! (They're game boxes--they have about 6 different games and the little tub has wheels on it. I've decided they will be perfect for roadtrips!)
I caught her reaction on the video in the next post. Priceless. She had just asked for a guitar a couple weeks before (after we'd already gotten all of the presents). A friend of Aaron's got this as a gag gift at his company Christmas party, so he called Aaron and told him to come over--he could give it to Anna! Perfect!! Funny how God worked that one out:)
Our wonderful neighbors got the kids gifts, as well. Anna had been eyeing a Play-Doh set for over a month. I had intended to get her one, but never came across one at the right time. Good thing! Both Anna & Jacob LOVE it! I remember playing for hours with mine as a little girl.
If Jacob gets hungry, don't let him play with Play-Doh! He'll eat it up like it's a cookie!!! Yuck! He got a Cars (what else?!) book that has noise-making buttons (whatever those are called!). He loves it. We're off in the morning for our trip. We're looking forward to seeing a lot of family!! Merry Christmas!
