Steve and I decided that our family is going to have Santa come the week before Christmas (we were going to have him come on the Dutch holiday Sinterklasse day on December 6th, but, uh...Santa wasn't quite ready!)-- this way, we can have one day for Santa, and then have Christmas be about CHRIST. So this past Friday night, Gray made cookies with Nani (the traditional stars, bells, and snowmen, but there were also some ghosts and bats in there, too), and we set them out for Santa. He didn't disappoint!
|Grayson got a little trampoline -- he's loved bouncing like a kangaroo, frog, lemur, and a monkey on it.
|He got these little bath toy animals in his stocking
|He spent the first hour just lining the animals up in various places around the room.
|T slept in for a while, but when he woke up, he was excited for his bead toy, some books, and a teddy bear.
|Playing with the new loot!
|I had to put him in his Santa outfit after his morning diaper change. He is so stinkin' cute!
|He loves books, and he really loved the Hungry Caterpillar book! He flipped through it and babbled at it for a long time
|...he also chewed on it a bit.
|I had to include these cute close-ups -- he is just too adorable
|Gray wanted T on the trampoline with him. T was excited :)
|Gray was excited to show T all his animals
|T taking a turn on the tramp. Ha - not really, but he did like standing there and kind of bouncing/wobbling around -- don't worry, I was right next to him the whole time.
