We had a very interesting Christmas this year.
Let me back up to Sunday the 20th. Long story short, Lilly fell down some steps at a Christmas party and broke her elbow. No trips to the ER or anything, but that meant she got an early Christmas present of a pink full-arm cast from Santa this year. My wife K.C. does an infinitely better job explaning the whole ordeal on her blog then I ever could, so I'll simply drop a link to it HERE.
Other than all of that drama, it was a very low key Christmas. One of the few big holidays we've done more or less as a solo family unit recently. Other than a quick drop in by Uncle Andy & Chia and a ride over to my Mom's house, there was no real running around and no hosting of a big family dinner this year...just K.C., Lilly, & I enjoying a relatively quiet Christmas day.
Lilly got so many toys (pug Pillow Pet, three Barbie Dolls, Leap Frog Clickstart computer, among others), I can't even start to list them all. The most popular (with the adults) was probably the Barbie Tanner dog. Why? He eats food on one end, and with a magical wag of his tail poops it out the other. I'm not joking...here's proof:
Not to diminish any of the other presents I received (including a pile of Cabela's & Bass Pro gift cards) I will say I'm very excited about by "big" present from K.C., a waterproof digital camera. I'm no expert photographer, but I am clumsy, so I'm glad if I want to take some streamside pics I no longer have to worry about getting the camera wet anymore.
Anyway, enough about me. Here's some more pics of Lilly in her casted, present-opening glory:
