We drove down to Palo Alto to visit with Grandma Dulce and Aunt Megan for Christmas. On the way down we were stuck in traffic on 19th, luckily, we had Friend Truck!
Christmas morning, Oliver made out like a bandit – not quite as big a haul as last year’s crib and changing table, but still a fair number of fun toys:
Oliver greatly enjoyed pulling on ribbons and playing with boxes, the toys were cool, but so were Mommy & Daddy’s new napkins.
There were also PJs from Grandma, a t-shirt and shoes from “Santa”, and a number of other fun items. Grandma Irene sent a personalized stocking which will grace the mantle (or stocking hook on the bookcase) for many Christmases to come.
When the packaging had cleared (and we’d all gotten dressed), Gavin and I took Oliver to the park.
After the park Oliver bounced on his new Rody and practiced his mountaineering skills on Gavin.
Eventually I’ll do a massive photo update with an 11 month album. I’ve been busy doing other things (baking 18 doz. cookies, 2 almond ring coffee cakes, and a 4-layer german chocolate cake; celebrating Christmas, visiting the Monterey Bay Aquarium, driving home, and doing laundry).
