Piper was, quite obviously, thrilled with her new monkey towel. She was in desperate need of a new one, as her old (infant) one barely reached around her cute little belly. (She is making monkey sounds in the picture.)
Hadley was pretty particular this year about finding a seam to pull apart, instead of just tearing it open.
This was my favorite part of the whole evening. As Hadley opened this gift, she said with her face all aglow, "I have always wanted a polka dot robe, Mama!" Piper also got one, and was glad to be a 'matcher' with her sister, but wasn't quite sure about having it tied around her.
This was the big ticket item under the tree this year. Hadley even made sure to ask Santa for a scooter when we saw him last week. And she also informed me, way back in October when I first started shopping, that if I got her anything to ride on...it should be pink. Okay then.
