it was a good christmas thanks to secret santa. we love you. devyn had fun for the first time putting the ornaments up on the advent calendar my mom made me 15 years ago. she would ask about it every day.
she helped us set up and decorate the tree, but she liked it so much the pictures i/ve got are pretty much of the back of her head because she didn/t want to stop decorating and turn around long enough for me to take a picture.
and we made cookies and left them out for santa and his reindeer, along with a note that asked santa to tell frosty the snowman that devyn is his number one fan. (santa assured us in the note that back that he would let frosty know.)
(please ignore how dirty my bedroom is.)
devyn's favorite present is probably her $20 medical kit that one of my siblings or i owned when we were her age. it's a stethoscope, blood pressure cuff, ear-looker-inner-thingy, thermometer, and shot (all fake and pink plastic, of course) and a little case with an x-ray to carry them all around in. she calls them her "doctor". my aunt marilyn gave her a zhu zhu pet (mr. squiggles) that devyn calls her "kitty cat". she got a couple stuffed kai lans and an olivia and some little plastic yo gabba gabba gang guys. she got a unicorn head on a stick from granny and poppop that she rides around and says "giddy-up" and a blue moxie girl guitar that plays the drums (?) when you strum it and has a whammy bar and the struts play notes. she dances around when she plays it. she got some "piggy jammas" from nana and pops that she LOVES. i don't even know what else she got. some books and some puzzles. anyway. it was a good christmas for her.
