^^^ On our way to get the mail ^^^
we spotted some (rein)deer in our front yard.
^^^ Despite being allergic to corn, ^^^
Greta knew exactly how to eat it on the cob.
^^^ Santa didn't pull through on this one, ^^^
but we still love him.
^^^ It was unusually warm this Christmas. ^^^
We got to spend some time outside at Mamy and Granddaddy's house
before opening presents.
^^^ Greta loves her Mamy snuggles ^^^
^^^ Opening presents was a little overwhelming ^^^
so we took a break in the quiet kitchen to explore independently for a while.
^^^ But then Eli showed up ^^^
and someone was happy, happy, happy
to see her "Aya" (as she calls him).
^^^ Laughing at Granddaddy's jokes ^^^
^^^ Getting a lift from cousin Shea ^^^
When all was said and done with the holiday celebrations,
GG decided that her most favorite gift this year
was baby monkey "George" from Poppy.
We celebrated Hanukkah a couple weeks ago,
(I failed to take pictures -- must do better next year!)
and this monkey and GG have been inseparable ever since.
