Santa came through and got Scotty the red remote control monster truck that he has been dreaming of. Some time in early December Scott told me that he had 4 chances to get the monster truck: 1) Santa; 2) Mom & Dad; 3) His own savings; 4) 6th Birthday. He figured the probability of getting a truck was pretty high. He was right.
He also got several other things that were on his list, including a bow and arrow set. Every time we go in the dollar store he asks for one of these and I always refuse because I know the one in the dollar store is going to be junk. We went one notch higher and bought it from Kmart. After 3 days more than half of the arrows were still intact. Scotty also reeled in a considerable amount of Lego, which is the toy that he plays with the most.
I loved this shot of my niece Emily unwrapping her first-ever mobile phone. So much joy. So much texting.
Katie's Christmas was a monochromatic, purple affair. She got purple clothes, purple accessories, a purple back pack. The few exceptions to the purple rule were pink, which didn't bother her one bit (pink is her #2 favourite colour).
She had a lot of fun with her new doll that will repeat back what you say, but in a baby voice. Uncle Joke was happy to provide some more Bear Poops references for the doll to repeat. Hilarity ensued.
