Christmas Unwrapped

Christmas was a lot of fun this year! P was ridiculously spoiled by his Gigi and Papa. I thought he would be more in to opening the presents than he was...but that's what I get for being a first time mom. Seventeen month olds...do not care about unwrapping presents. They just want the toy...and they want it now! The wrapping paper is just seen as a barrier to the TOY they are so deseparately trying to reach.

He got so frustrated with the wrapping paper and it didn't help that both Gigi and I, bought the heaviest wrapping paper out there. OOPS!! Lesson learned! Gosh, you experienced momma's should have warned me to use thin paper and as little tape as possible. Wait, you should have just told be not to bother with the wrapping!

We tried to get a group shot, but as you can see, pulling him away from his new toys that he was trying to play with, did not turn out to be a happy shot. In fact, he was doing "mean face" at the camera for awhile so daddy and I decided we would just match him...and do "mean face" too. We seemed to pull off the "mean face" well...but he was past the "mean face" point...and on to crying.

After all these gifts he got...what did he seem to play with the most? The bike he got for his birthday. Yea, so much for Christmas presents. I should have just re-wrapped the bike and called it a day.I will admit he LOVED the Bee Bop Band that we bought him. Actually, he hasn't stopped playing with it since he opened it. Unfortunately, it's a drum set. And it's a loud drum set. I should have known better. Not only that, but he thinks everything is a set of drums now. He takes the drum sticks and beats the coffee table, the kitchen floor, the window, the washer, the DOGS...just about anything he can find to hit...he does.

However, I do think this drum set is one of the best I've seen for his age. Plus, you can store all the other musical intstruments that it comes with inside the drum! Here's where to buy...

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!!! It's hard to believe it's almost 2009! I am excited to enter 2009 with so many new blogging BF's!

Found your blog through Nina. It's great! Can't wait to read more. That drum set is so cute, but I can imagine it's a little loud! Hope you had a great holiday!

Sounds like you guys have had a very fun and exciting Christmas! Way to go with the drum set....kudos to parents who encourage the noise-making! My husband is a drummer so I'm a bit partial...
