Excitement was brewing and we are just about to leave for the traditional drive to Great Gma R's house. Mia had on a more festive outfit, but just as we were about to walk out the door, she decided it needed some extra adornment...greenish-brownish smelly adornment.
Mia getting acquainted with Great Gma R
As you can see, Mia is overwhelmed with excitement about her new sock-monkey, Penelope.
And Mom is waaaaaay too into these Dr. Seuss books- Help me!
Our booty (note object on David's back- more on that later)
Mia was carefully inspecting each one of the items in her bottomless stocking at Gma Rs.
Cousin Talan received a pony from Santa. Mia was trying to hide her envy by feigning indifference at first, but quickly gave up the mask.
At Gma K's, Uncle Ethan decided that Mia was the best Christmas present ever, so she deserved her own box. We agreed.
I think this image of my sister is really funny. She remained fully attired for major chunk of the day and thought nothing of it.
