Conscious Christmas

Erin certainly enjoyed 2011’s Christmas, but this year was different. She knew Santa, Christmas tree, presents, reindeer, and jingle bells. She probably didn’t understand their connection, but she knew Santa was going to bring her presents, and she knew that one of them would probably be a lollipop.

She also got a “starter” dollhouse with fabric dolls, more puzzles, Mr. Potato Head, books,  tea set, and other items that I can’t remember off the top of my head.

And now that she has a taste of the joy of Christmas, I imagine that next year, we will have one very excited little girl.
