Christmas isn't quite over yet...

What an experience!! It was so fun Christmas morning watching Parker "discover" her new toys. The one that we were the most excited about was her Little Tikes police car. When she stayed with Ms. Alissa while I was in school, Parker was able to play with her boys' car...which she absolutely loved.....so we knew (or at least assumed) that she would love her own little car. This is the car that when I would arrive to pick her up, she would often get into the car and away from me! It wasn't very nice!! Anyhow- I couldn't wait to see her face and how she would react. She had just woken up...I changed her diaper, but she was still a bit groggy (like her daddy is for about the first 2 hours he's awake)...so I brought her into the living room, and let her see her new car. Once she saw it, she walked up to it almost immediately...opened the door and made a squeal...




Ooops!! She dropped her "lovey".....tragic (I'm sure)!

This is hilarious to me....how she props up her right leg. She does this when she sits in her pink chair or even in her booster seat if the tray is not on. So I guess her car would be no different...


She played around in the car for a while before realizing there were a few other toys that we had put out. Right here she had just spotted her train set thingie...

"Hmmmm......

"........now what is that??".......

She couldn't hold the smile in any longer!!
So here she has barely touched her tain set thingie...when she spots something new. You can see it in her face, "Hmmmmmm.....what's that??"

Her new piano!!! (why do I feel like I am announcing new things like I am on the Price is Right as I type this??)


For about the first 10 minutes she was a little confused as to where she should go....I mean...there was just so much to do!

Here she is even playing her piano while still half-way in the car.

Her Aquadoodle pad....

Just a cute little picture (in my unbiased opinion)...

(what's up with her tongue sticking out??)



Here she is helping Daddy open his present from me....

And this is the round tin thingie that Daddy's watch came in....that is actually being showcased on the blog because she almost enjoyed this as much as her actual gifts!!

Ummm....I don't think this is how the Sit 'n Spin thing is supposed to work....but we're working on it, and she looks cute nonetheless. The important thing here is that this is a very loud musical toy with no stop/OFF or volume button. Gotta love those toys!!

So we enjoyed our morning at home, and then visited my dad's house for lunch. I must say, Parker was very well- behaved for the busy,busy day and no nap! She might have made up for it today with a "little" of bit of her whining...but I'll take it!! We had a really good day. I know this is Parker's second Christmas, but in some ways, it felt like her first.


This is the laptop that her Papaw and Gran got her. She loves it!! It's really too old for her as far as the games that are on it to play, but it is great pretend play for her now! I know she has such a serious face on in this picture, but look at her cute little hand on the mouse and her other hand on the keyboard. This toy also makes lots of noise, which helps in the entertainment area! (But I do have to kind of watch her with this thing....today it wasn't doing what she wanted it to do--(whatever that was)---and she started throwing a huge fit and throwing it around. So I put the mini-laptop in a little time-out and we were all good after that...)

And look at this bag!! It's too cute!! Her Aunt Kasey and Uncle Brian gave her this!

And she loved it, too! She carried this around for a good 20 minutes...



And then this is from this morning....her little smerk in her little car that she loves (with her little rag doll, of course)....

Her little foot propped up, as always....

Now this....this makes me laugh....she is trying to pull all of the decals off of her car. The one in the picture below is stuck on there pretty good...she can't get it off...and it makes her mad....

But these head lights....

...she can get this off.....

....and I guess she likes it better somewhere else????


So Christmas isn't quite over for us yet. Due to the fact that we didn't want to be going from place to place on Christmas day, and the fact that Geoff has been working so much lately, and that we all seem to have different schedules and such...we are going to my mom's tomorrow for Christmas, and then Geoff's dad and his wife will be joining us for dinner at our house on Sunday evening. We are looking forward to spending the time with our families.

Now....I think it might be time for a garage sale to make room for all of Parker's new things! Our little ole house is busting at the seams!!

Love the car, it is very cute! She has her own little personality to put her feet up that way. She had a very good Christmas and she is still getting more tomorrow!!
