Ok, so we all know that Santa is the handsome, busy, funny guy we call our husband. But who would have thought that your builder husband would have a hard time assembling a simple child's kitchen??
So maybe Nana didn't look at the box when she bought the 42 wooden piece--140 pieces of hardware. Not thinking, Santa left his drills at the North Pole (Blanco)and we assembled this all with a Phillips screwdriver. We thank Auntie Brett for taking the elf roll and helping us with the massive instruction manual.
We finally finished assembly at 12:30 AM and crawled into bed.
Blake and I exchanged gifts after midnight, our new tradition, so we would have a Christmas moment to ourselves. I got Blake an iphone which he was very excited about. He did fantastic this year and got me a ring from Tiffanys.
Morning came oh too quickly and Molly was up at 6:45 AM. She still doesn't get the whole Christmas thing so she was in a terrible mood. We had to watch Elmo in the bed to calm down a little bit before going out into the living room. But as soon as she did, all grumpiness was forgotten. She saw her kitchen and fell in love. Blake got her a monogrammed chair and I got a pink tricycle. She hopped from present to present smiling.
