Christmas 2008 Highlights

What a whirlwind day of opening gifts and visiting family. Goldie still has one gift left to open. She was more interested in what her sisters were getting. You know, things you can choke on are much cooler than blocks and stacking toys.

Santa brought the big girls a Wii. This is our first video game system. I try to limit their screen time, but we've played Wii at the neighbor's and it is sooo much fun. Its something we can all do together.

Goldie got one of these from Santa. She is having a great time learning to use it. Hank is impressed by how well made it is. Also, since its wood it is fixable should the kids break it. Then, since she absolutely hates the stacking rings, I got her this and this. Now that she is walking we need to start encouraging her to use her fine motor skills. The OT thinks she is capable of doing more in this area.

I'll leave you with a family photo. Excuse Hank's attire. He is a total farm boy and I can't get him into clean clothes. But, I'm totally smitten with that cleft in his chin.
