We hope everyone had a great Christmas. Elizabeth was so excited this year we woke at 6:00 with her squealing 'he was here, he really was here, Mom and Dad Santa was here' she was so excited that Santa had left her stocking on her bed full with treats.
Elizabeth had an interesting list of wants this year; she had a requested the Kota the ride-on triceratops, a remote control bat and a remote control tarantula. Santa was really taken aback by her requests and told her that was a 'strange list' while she posed with him for a picture. Santa did alter her requests and brought her a toy puppy whom she adores she spends every waking minute with him; she walks him, pats him and has even built him a doghouse. He was really great at keeping her occupied while we prepared dinner for all the family. What I love about her puppy is that he does not even pee unlike her cousins Baby Alive doll (Elizabeth is quite spooked by this doll, go figure loves tarantula's but afraid of Baby Alive) which peed through her diaper in minutes. Auntie Maria did fulfill the request for the remote control tarantula and Elizabeth takes great pleasure in chasing us around the house with it.
We are continuing with our tradition of Christmas Eve Mass, Elizabeth was so enthralled by the festivities at the church, she even answered all the questions about Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus. She did have that look in her eyes in the church that leaves me on edge as she is quite mischievous but she limited her naughtiness to just poking at Grams while she sung.
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas.
