Babe in Toyland

Well Santa made his first trip to our house last night, and by the look of things he had no trouble finding the place.  Sabrina made a pretty good haul between the things we got her and the loot she accumulated from her grandparents and her aunts and uncles.  I think the best gift was a big wooden toybox my father made for her.  It's beautiful, has lots of room, will last forever, and unlike everything else she got, requires no batteries and makes absolutely NO noise at all.  The rest of the stuff (except for the clothes) all makes loud musical flourishes and nonsense sounds.  Things without speakers can be pounded against the floor quite effectively for ear blasting sounds.  Most of it had to be put together of course.  I'll leave you with pictures of our day while I try to find Tab A to insert in Slot B...

This stuff is for me?

Rip, then tear, then rip, then tear

Chase, you can have this one.

Let's all open this one.

Christmas night, helping Daddy put stuff together.

OMGoodness! I am in love with that toybox your dad made!! How lucky are you guys! If we lived closer, I'd be begging him to make me one!!

Looks like Sabrina had a great 1st Christmas!

Definitely a holiday to remember! (I don't know how you find time and energy to blog about it. Impressive.)

What a beautiful toybox. Your dad is talented!

And what a beautiful girl. I see that you too had multiple "Baby's first Xmas" outfits for your kid to model.

I hope that you are now enjoying some peaceful, fun time together before the new year.
