Kerry had a wonderful first Christmas home, and we had a wonderful first Christmas with our girl. She got way too much stuff from everyone (including Mommy and Daddy) but she's had a blast playing with her new things, especially her new kitchen. I had so much fun just watching her. And to think, last Christmas, we didn't even know that there was a 9 month old baby girl in an orphanage in southern China, who this year would be calling us Mama and Daddy, and making a wonderful mess of our living room =).
She was so into her kitchen we had a hard time persuading her to open anything else for the longest time, but she finally did, and quickly decided that this classic FP cash register (remember those) was pretty cool, too.
She got an art easel with a chalkboard on one side, and a marker/magnetic surface on the other side. She had other ideas for what to do with the little magnetic letters that came with it. I don't know where she comes up with this stuff...and, no, I don't use toe separators when I paint my toenails.
