the big day

Even though we forgot to leave him milk and cookies, Santa was a good sport and left some goodies for the kids.
The big gift was a wooden kitchen, though Alexa was more excited about the fact that Frosty was perched on one of the shelves.

Dylan couldn't believe that Santa had taken the time to assemble the puppet theatre Kaytie got for him and his sister.

Alexa enjoyed lounging in the fancy pink chair from her Uncle Joey and reading her new book of poems from Santa.

If we ever get some real snow, Dylan will be able to test out his snowshoes on the trail. He did sport the trekking poles for a while when he and I hiked up Sleeping Giant later in the day. After about 20 minutes, though, he handed them over to me, along with his backpack.

All in all, it was a good Christmas. It was the first year that both kids really got into it, which made it quite a treat for us as well. Of course, Alexa still thinks that Santa lives "at the mall," but overall, she gets it.

That's great that you already bought him all that gear! We're waiting for some real snow here, too!
