Pictures I know a lot of people have been waiting for... Christmas shots!
These are highly abbreviated. This girl, between Matthew and I, our family here and our family in Texas, had FOUR Christmases. That's not a joke or the latest Vince Vaughn holiday film.
Dory had a grand day. She loved opening her gifts, they never seemed to overwhelm her and she wasn't even bothered by the constant flash of cameras going off.
(a baby grand piano- in pink)
(a rocking horse)
(a piggy bank- a wise thought in these trying economic times)
(monkey hat- fashionable and warm)
(another piggy bank, this one shaped like a Chicago Bears helmet)
(a pic of the abundance of gifts)
("Good Night Moon"- the glow-in-the-dark puzzle)
(Dory inside the chute off the side of the indoors tent- that's right a TENT- she got)
So Dory, this is your second Christmas- how do you feel about that haul?
That's what I thought.
Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and, I'd like to personally thank all Dory's grandparents and her great-(and cool!) grandmother for doing their part to bolster the economy. It was good work by you all.
