Yesterday, I got sick of looking at all the decorations, declared the Holiday season to officially be over and packed our decorations into boxes. I attempted to do this Jan 2, but I’m married to a Ukrainian and they have some wacky ideas on when Christmas is celebrated. I do like pierogis though.
Mini had a fantastic Christmas, mainly because she was ridiculously spoiled by everyone around her. I’m pretty sure she just expects presents to be laid at her feet everywhere we go. She’s just started to grasp the whole concept, and I think she’s okay with it. Except the Santa bit – she does NOT like Santa, mainly the lap sitting thing – I don’t blame her.
She was also excited by Christmas Crackers – but only if you quickly stuff an edible cracker inside of her cardboard cracker. The hilarity of watching your almost 2 year old be disappointed because her cracker is missing is priceless. On her second cracker go-round, we were much better prepared and Derek quickly stuffed a wheat thin inside.
So that was Christmas, and here comes Mini’s 2nd birthday! TWO!?
