We took many short movies of Raya opening various presents, but here is just one example. She seemed to enjoy tearing off the paper, but isn't quite old enough to understand the concept of Santa or anything yet obviously. She loves all her new stuff though!
Then here is a sampling of photos as Raya played with her new stuff today :-)
Trying out her chef costume from Grandma and Grandpa...she's quite the cook! lol
Daddy, putting together Raya's car ramp raceway from Santa
She liked it...especially the noises it makes!
She also got a cool dollhouse from Santa
Once again she is a fan of the noises this makes...especially flushing the toilet!
Mama's favorite gifts were the "boring" ones lol...like this super cute owl backpack!
And Santa may have gotten these cute blocks off of Etsy :-)
They have owl fabric on them! :-)
The toy from Santa that impressed me the most though was this zoo toy...it came with so much stuff and it's really nice quality! The play mat has an alphabet path with an animal for every letter, and then there is an animal figure for every letter too. You push on each alphabet letter to hear the sound the animal makes or to hear the letter name and sound etc. Plus you have lots of other activities you can do with the animals and stuff. Love it and highly recommend!
Then Grandma, here is the doll nursery center you got Raya...she is very particular about how it must be used and I dare not attempt to play with it myself or she yells at me! :-P
Baby Anna is still getting lots of lovin'
And then because mama was going to lose her ever loving mind if all these new toys didn't disappear from her living room I spent my evening organizing Raya's playroom to try and make room for all the new stuff!!! It mostly fits....just barely haha. In our next house I think Raya will need TWO playrooms!
|The easel is another of Santa's gifts. Santa wasn't thinking obviously about the sheer size|
of all these wonderful new toys when she (I mean he) bought them! :-P
Spoiled little girl!
And despite it being Christmas, the most wonderful time of the year, Miss Raya stayed a little bit of a grump today due to her cold.
But in her defense, it is a doozy of a cold and she has trouble getting sleep right now. Check out for yourself what a hot mess she was when she woke up this morning!!! Good thing we were still at Grandma's....I had Grandma take care of booger face :-P
Tomorrow we have our last Christmas celebration....my mom's side of the family so looking forward to that :-) Then once we get back home we officially enter the time period I've started referring to as "baby can come any time now!" hehe....I'm technically "full term" as of today at 37 weeks, and after tomorrow I have no more traveling planned, so Brielle, you are welcome to grace us with your presence whenever you see fit! However I still recommend stearing clear of New Years....who wants their birthday to constantly compete with that?!
Thanks for checking in today!
