I loved his reactions! Each time he would start to tear into the paper he would gasp and say "Oh" or "Wow", or "Woah, look at this one!". He was genuinely thrilled with every single gift. The first things he opened were some "Thomas" trains. He got Molly, a coal car, a new Thomas, Alfie (a digger), and a bulldozer (which we're going to have to return because it won't fit on the track). Plus he got 2 new train track sets, one of which is a carrying case that holds all the trains inside, the other came with 4 cars, some buildings, animals, trees and people. After opening those he was good to go for a few hours. He played until his little heart was content. When asked what he thought he said "Oh yes, I'm liking it!"
But get this. The big Momma-chobey gift of them all... his Big Jeep (the outside kind you sit in and ride around the yard)... hasn't even been revealed yet. It's just been too wet and cold out. What else did we expect to happen this time of year? We are holding out for a dry and/or warm(ish) day to give it to him. He won't know the difference. That's the great thing about being two - you have no sense of time. ;)
But anyway, back to Christmas.
Dad, Manny, Ragon, Jacob and I went to see Sherlock Holmes while Mom and Elijah stayed home to nap. Good flick. Two cute boys, lots of action, lots of humor. I give it an A.
So after the movie I stared to feel sick. It was bound to happen but I was really really hoping it wouldn't. I ended up laying around and not being much help with supper. Mom and Grandma got things ready. But boy howdy! Did we have a yummy meal... what I could eat of it. I wrote about the food the other day so I'll spare the details. Steak, potatoes, salad, etc.
Our evening concluded with "A Christmas Story" on TV.
