Since we ended up changing our plans to go out to CO less than a week before Christmas, the gifts were all running a bit late. Luckily our kids didn't seem to mind Christmas in mid January ;) and hopefully my in-laws don't mind either, because our boxes passed in the mail.
Lulu got the first gift, and she was not willing to share. Oh that two year old personality, coming out so soon.
Here she is telling JP just who's gift it is, and pushing him away whenever he tried to come closer.
(She's not really homeless; I do her hair every morning, but after a long day at school it's all in her face again.)
Lulu loved her new doll, and as soon as she unwrapped it she gave it the sweetest hug and took off running lest someone should try to take it from her.
Poor child, having a big brother makes you a little paranoid.
Dh got a great book, and JP tore into his next gift. Oh yes, 225 pieces of Tinker Toys! He was so happy, and spent the next ten minutes trying to get it open. No, we did not help him.
