People have told me over the years, that as an adult, the holidays aren't really fun until you have a kid to celebrate them with. They were right. This was the first year the Goober really got the idea of presents and didn't have to have her presents opened for her:

She still doesn't quite have the hang of packaging, though. She got this open and said "Oooh. A box! I love boxes!" ...was super-duper thrilled when she realized there was SOMETHING IN THE BOX.

The husbeast got her a toy welding set - gloves, striker, welder, and welding hood:

Now she can be a welder, just like Dadad.

The toy playhouse was assembled with the Goober's help:

Unfortunately, Sekhmet has decided it is hers, and is guarding her turf like the evil, furry beast she is.

They've been chasing each other out of the play house all morning. So far no swats have been exchanged, but it's just a matter of time.

Twenty bucks on the cat.

I hope everyone is having a happy, safe day, whether they're celebrating or not.

It's so true! Christmas is way more fun with a kid in the house!!

The first year he cared, mine started playing with the first toy unwrapped and never even thought about the fact that there were more under the tree! It was so cute!

Where did he get the toy welding set? My great nephew needs one!!

Think you could get away with just giving her empty boxes next year?

Gee, her curls are a lot like Kevin-little-man's were 11 years ago. I hope she keeps them longer than he did!
